How do I invest in semiconductor stocks?

The digitalisation of industry, services and everyday life requires an increasing volume of ever more powerful hardware: smartphones, PCs, modern cars, machine controls, server farms or the network infrastructure consist of billions of semiconductor components. The basis of processors, memory, power and process chips today are semiconducting materials such as silicon, of which several million tonnes are processed every year.

Companies that develop and manufacture such components from semiconductors benefit directly from the megatrend of digitalisation. The best and cheapest way to invest in semiconductor manufacturers is with ETFs.

In this investment guide, you will find all the ETFs that allow you to invest in semiconductor stocks.
