Annual Report 2021

Annual Report 2021

The coronavirus pandemic continued to have an impact in the 2021 fiscal year. The unexpectedly strong recovery of the global economy by the end of the 2020 calendar year led to a boom in demand in many sectors and a resultant shortage of semiconductor components.

We are continuing to focus on the structurally fastgrowing themes of electrification and digitalization. With Cypress, we have significantly increased our expertise in system solutions, especially with regard to the IoT.

The integration of Cypress and the refinancing of this acquisition are proceeding on schedule. In March 2021, capital market confidence in Infineon’s economic prospects resulted in the inclusion of our shares in Europe’s most prestigious stock market index, the EURO STOXX 50®.

Sustainability plays a key role for Infineon. At the beginning of 2020, we had already set ourselves the goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2030. Our high sustainability ratings and our inclusion in sustainability indices are both our reward and our motivation.
