Current weakness of China Semiconductor industry is its lacking of analog chip supplier. It's harder to design analog chips because it takes much more experiences.  

However, here's the good part of analog chips
1) much easier to reverse engineer, unlike digital chip, it's transistor gate count is much smaller. The structure of analog chip can  be studied and copy through using of electron scanning microscope.   Analog chip structure is much easier to be copied.

2)analog chips usually use older tech process, not need for state of the art, fastest process.

Due to above two factors , China will become a dominant analog chip powerhouse.
