Europe's semiconductor firms are struggling to compete with bigger U.S. and Asian rivals, which have largely outsourced chip manufacturing to cope with volatility in demand and prices.

"Since integration, the modems market has developed in a direction that has reduced the addressable market for thin modems," Ericsson said in a statement.

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - The European Central Bank (ECB) has no plans to end its business relations with U.S. telecoms firm Verizon Communications Inc, ECB President Mario Draghi said in response to a query from a member of the European parliament on Thursday.
