THE revenue of the Chinese integrated circuit market will recover strongly this year due to growing domestic demand for chips and also in new sectors such as smart grid, automotive and mobile computing, industry officials said during a semiconductor event yesterday.

The IC companies will expand production capacity and invest heavily to upgrade technology, senior officials from SMIC, ASE and HLMC told a forum during the three-day Semicon China 2012, which opened yesterday in Shanghai.
