The transformation of the global electronics giant has triggered a wave of layoffs: entering the overall crisis

the global electronics industry has entered a season of high layoffs, and the once brilliant scientific and technological talents are facing the dilemma of losing their jobs. Just when Hewlett Packard (Weibo), the world's largest PC manufacturer, announced that it would cut 27000 jobs, Renesas, the world's largest semiconductor manufacturer, planned to cut 10000 jobs, and blackberry (Weibo) planned to cut another 2000 jobs, early yesterday morning, Panasonic announced that it would cut 50% of its 7000 employees in the head office in 2012. The intensity of this wave of it layoffs has aroused great concern in the industry

tmt industry analyst zhangjianbin said in an interview with Nandu that the global electronics industry is now showing a trend of differentiation, and apple, Lenovo, Samsung, Huawei (Weibo), ZTE and other enterprises can show strong growth momentum even in a very unsatisfactory economic environment; While other electronic giants, especially the Japanese electronics industry, fell to the ground, and a new round of reshuffle of the global electronics industry is inevitable. "This is a kind of structural differentiation. Enterprises that can not keep up with the change and do not have cost competitiveness will be eliminated."

poor performance. The sharp decline in the performance of the "arm broken layoffs" of large electronic enterprises has put the jobs of the electronics industry at risk. Last month, Japanese giants concentrated on large-scale layoffs to save themselves. Sony plans to lay off about 10000 people this year, accounting for 6% of the total number of employees; NEC plans to lay off 10000 employees worldwide this year. As a buffer, NEC announced that it will start to raise voluntary leavers in July. Now this wave of layoffs is spreading. Last week, Hewlett Packard, the world's largest PC manufacturer, announced that it would cut 27000 jobs, while Renesas, the world's largest chip manufacturer, planned to cut 10000 jobs. BlackBerry is expected to cut another 2000 jobs on the basis of the 2000 job cuts announced last year

Panasonic announced yesterday that half of the staff in its headquarters in Japan would be laid off. It is worth noting that this layoff integration is not a front-end production department, as zhenglansun, member of the Standing Committee of the CPPCC National Committee, vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Democratic League and academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, believes, but involves white-collar departments, such as procurement, quality management, it system support, and even R & D

layoffs are undoubtedly a self-protection measure under the huge financial losses. Just when Lenovo announced a 70% increase in net profit, HP and Dell respectively saw a sharp decline in net profit of 31% and 33% respectively in aluminum pipe butt welded aluminum plastic pipe gb/t18997.2 (2) 003 aluminum plastic composite pressure pipe (butt welding) cj/t159 (2) 002. On the same day, Dell's share price exploded. Although this method is very time-consuming at present, it fell by 17%, and the market value instantly evaporated by $4.7 billion. While releasing the new quarterly financial report, HP announced a large-scale layoff plan for 25000 ~ 30000 employees (accounting for about 9% of the employees in the headquarters in California), hoping to save more than $3 billion a year

the world's largest semiconductor manufacturer Renesas electronics cut 1 In addition to 20000 employees, 19 companies in Japan were also closed down and TSMC was entrusted to do the work. The number of layoffs was equivalent to one third of the total number of employees. After blackberry, a former brilliant manufacturer, laid off 10% of its global employees -- about 2000 employees -- in July last year, people familiar with the matter recently disclosed that rim will announce another major global restructuring on June 1, including at least 2000 layoffs. At the same time, the attorney general also left, which can be described as internal and external troubles

the electronics industry has entered an overall crisis

the increasingly intense wave of layoffs in the electronics industry indicates that the global electronics industry is facing an overall crisis, and a major reshuffle is inevitable. It also indicates that the global electronics industry will enter a substantive stage of restructuring and reform

take Panasonic as an example. Since the financial crisis, Panasonic has continuously introduced various reform measures, such as integrating Panasonic electric and Sanyo Electric after the acquisition, stopping the production of plasma with no market prospect, and selling white electricity with poor profit prospect to China Haier. Today, Panasonic will cut 7000 employees by half at the head office level. All these measures are paving the way for Panasonic's strategic transformation. From the perspective of the company's strategy, Panasonic is transforming from comprehensive household appliances to the field of environment and energy. The replacement of personnel will help to absorb new talents

jinjianmin, a researcher at Fujitsu comprehensive research institute, said that the electronic industry represented by the Japanese system collapsed in an all-round way because "technology wins and Commerce loses". At the same time, the appreciation of the yen, high corporate tax, high labor costs, internal wrestling, more personnel, more equipment, and slow decision-making are also the main reasons

according to the analysis of Li Ke of China Semiconductor Industry Association in an interview, the world's largest chip manufacturer, Renesas, plans to cut 10000 jobs, marking that the industry has entered a recession cycle. Li Ke believes that this is first related to the overall economic situation. The sluggish manufacturing industry in the United States, the European debt crisis and the hard landing of China's economy all indicate that the global economic situation is not optimistic. As an upstream, the semiconductor industry will inevitably be affected by the large economic environment. Secondly, the technology evolution of the semiconductor industry is relatively fast. With the increasing difficulty of R & D, enterprises are required to increase their investment, which will inevitably have higher requirements on the financial strength and risk tolerance of semiconductor enterprises. If the enterprise can not bear these pressures, it is easy to face elimination

"technology R & D in the science and technology industry is risky. Putting technology and capital into it may not necessarily lead to success," said Li Ke, which is also the reason why many science and technology enterprises are facing difficulties

viewpoint

niguangnan, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering:

downsizing enterprises are mostly due to poor transformation.

now some electronics giants have laid off a large number of employees, but analysis shows that most of them are traditional IT enterprises whose transformation is not smooth enough. For example, Risa and Sanyo of the Japanese electronics industry reflect the passive situation of the entire Japanese electronics industry under the impact of the new IT revolution. In the recent interview, I think this is because the basic research and application structure of Japan's electronics industry is unbalanced, and its role in software, services and business models cannot adapt to the era of cloud computing and mobile Internet in which Japan wants to reduce its dependence on petrochemical fuels and reduce its carbon footprint. As for HP, the transformation is not fast enough; BlackBerry is squeezed by apple and Android. Therefore, the layoffs of these enterprises cannot be regarded as the trend of the entire electronic information industry. They cannot represent the entire electronic information industry
