What many digital nerds were astounded to find out this year was the historical purchase of National Semiconductor by Texas Instruments. These two international electronic manufacturer moguls have been battling ever since the companies were founded, providing quality and diversity through competition. Why this merge is so astounding is because National Semiconductor didn’t express any forecasts in terms of this purchase and the fact that, as stated previously, these two companies battled for decades, make this purchase a very interesting topic that is worth many discussions and will most probably fill many forum headlines for a very long time.

Hopefully, this merge will bring more productivity and cheaper products given the fact that both companies have patented numerous technologies that will now merge in the best and professional manner possible providing the customers with a whole new improved interaction and range of products. The whole sale motto provided by the officials was ‘together we can do more’; personally I find this rather intriguing but as in many other similar cohesions in this segment of development, the new alliance is set to dethrone many worldwide manufacturers such as Toshiba.

This industry is very competitive and new players on the international industry emerge quite often lately; this means that more and more alliances such as this will be made and even with all the fuss around the world, many expert opinions agree upon the fact that globalization and the ever more reduced resources will make cohesions such as this normal and repetitive until the whole world industry will revolve around 2 – 3 nucleus that will have engulfed all smaller companies. The competition that this purchase sets for the international industry competitors is very powerful and if before the merge, these two companies were in top 10 electronic components manufacturers, now the new company will earn a well deserved 3rdplace in the industry. The only uncertainty is whether the company will reduce the diversity span regarding the manufacture of electronic components or it will enlarge the product palette for the customer market. This measure is however a typical measure in cases of such alliances but only the Board of directors and the CEO can decide this.

Another question that arises is whether the company will discontinue the products from National Semiconductors or will reshape the product range dynamically increasing profit and continuing the production of both companies’ products.

What I personally expect is smaller prices and a higher degree of quality for all products as both companies are renowned for.
