This chapter examines the growth and technological upgrading of China’s integrated circuit (IC) design industry. It reveals the bumpy history of its earlier efforts as well as its measured success in recent decades demonstrated by the scale and technological competence of many IC design houses. It argues that the development of China’s IC design industry is the results of multiple forces from the restructured global value chain of the semiconductor industry, the growing Chinese telecommunication markets, emerging Chinese telecom giants, and a large number of returnees attracted by China’s state support in this strategic industry. It speculates that selected Chinese IC design firms will become significant players in the world market should China’s cell phone standards become mainstream in leading markets.

Keywords:   IC design state, returnees, global value chains, foundry, industrial ecosystem
