Headquartered in Villach in the state of Carinthia, microelectronics firm Infineon Austria is a leading business in the country.

Energy efficiency, mobility and security are three global megatrends in modern society. They are also the central challenges that Infineon addresses with its semiconductor and system solutions.

In cars, smartphones, industrial electronics, debit cards and ID cards – know-how from Infineon Austria is found in many everyday applications.

Between 2013 and 2016, Infineon saw its turnover increase from €377m to €982m. Last year, its business in Japan accounted for 6% of overall revenue.

Fair free trade of the sort provided by the EU-Japan trade deal secures and creates jobs by strengthening the domestic economy. Japan is the EU's second largest trading partner in Asia after China, so it's essential that growing markets are open to our businesses and that we create the best possible conditions for exports and trade. The agreement would also make products cheaper for consumers. And it helps us compete globally, including microelectronics. Another important factor in the agreement will be harmonisation and tackling trade barriers in areas such as standards, safety regulations and public procurement.
