Semiconductor ETF Powers the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Have you heard of the fourth industrial revolution? If not, rest assured that it’s already changing your life. Zoom calls; smart heating and lighting; self-driving cars; rapid advances in medical science, including vaccines. All these require semiconductors and are just a few children of the revolution, which is gathering speed.

Be involved in this economic revolution by investing in our Semiconductor ETF, the VanEck Semiconductor UCITS ETF.

Our Semiconductor ETF Provides Access to the Core of Modern Tech

The 21st Century tech revolution would not be possible without an invention of the 20th Century: semiconductors, also called microchips. They make billions of flawless calculations per second and store nearly infinite data – all on a space smaller than your fingernail. Just a few large companies make semiconductors; they are well positioned to reap substantial profits.

It’s no exaggeration that the rise of tech is becoming exponential. Research from Huawei / Oxford Economics sees its share of the global economy (measured by gross domestic product) rising from 15% in 2006 to 24% in 2025. Thus, the growth perspectives of our Semiconductor ETF are excellent. We already find this around us, for instance:

  • Artificial intelligence in all sectors (eg medical research and diagnostics, self-driving cars, robotics)
  • 5G mobile communication (from wireless broadband to wireless TV)
  • 3D printing
  • The Internet of Things
  • Cryptocurrencies (notably Bitcoin)
  • 3D video gaming.

Invest in Progress with a Semiconductor ETF

Most semiconductor stocks are US or Asian firms. As a result, they may be underrepresented in European investors’ portfolios. As the first of its kind in Europe, the VanEck Semiconductor UCITS ETF is a high-quality, low-cost way to increase your exposure.

First Semiconductor ETF in Europe

The VanEck Semiconductor UCITS ETF has been the first Europe’s UCITS ETF offering specific exposure to the semiconductor sector.

Main Risk Factors of a Semiconductor ETF


Liquidity risks exist when a particular financial instrument is difficult to purchase or sell. If the relevant market is illiquid, it may not be possible to initiate a transaction or liquidate a position at an advantageous or reasonable price, or at all. This is one of the risk factors to consider when investing in the ETF.
