Why is the Global Trade in Integrated Circuits a Development Question?

Author(s) Emmanuel Wa-Kyendo, Maureen Barasa,

Theme: International Trade,

Integrated circuits represents an unprecedented convergence of scientific advancements in materials, efficiency in production processing and market demand. In this essay, it is argued that due to this explosive convergence in science and trade, whether or not African policy makers recognize the fact, the global trade in ICs is and will continue to be a development question. The division of labour and specialization and comparative advantage has seen a handful of firms and a selection of countries principally in East Asia and North America appropriate the most important share of the consumer surplus in IC production. Lacking the comparative advantage to produce ICs, African households, firms and governments as a net consumer of the product remain beneficiaries of significant consumer surplus windfalls. Without the IC, Africans would be considerably poorer. Overall, African households, firms and governments are consumers of ICs both in the direct and indirect markets.
