Semiconductor Equipment Consensus Forecast: Record Growth Ahead


Reading time ( words)

Global sales of semiconductor manufacturing equipment by original equipment manufacturers are projected to increase 16% compared to $59.6 billion in 2019 and register a new industry record of $68.9 billion in 2020, SEMI is releasing its Year-end Total Semiconductor Equipment Forecast – OEM Perspective at SEMICON Japan. The growth is expected to continue with the global semiconductor manufacturing equipment market reaching $ 71.9 billion in 2021 and $76.1 billion in 2022.

Both the front end and the back end semiconductor equipment segments are expected to power the expansion. The wafer fab equipment segment – which includes wafer processing, fab facilities, and mask/reticle equipment – is projected to rise 15% to reach $59.4 billion in 2020, followed by 4% and 6% growth in 2021 and 2022, respectively. The foundry and logic segments, which account for about half of total wafer fab equipment sales, will see a mid-teens percentage increase this year to reach $30 billion in spending driven by investments in leading-edge technologies. Spending on NAND flash manufacturing equipment will surge 30% this year, surpassing $14 billion, while DRAM is expected to lead the expansion in 2021 and 2022. 

The assembly and packaging equipment segment is forecast to grow 20% to $3.5 billion in 2020, followed by 8% and 5% increases in 2021 and 2022, respectively, driven by advanced packaging applications. The semiconductor test equipment market is expected to rise 20% in 2020, reaching $6 billion, and continue to expand in 2021 and 2022 on demand for 5G and high-performance computing (HPC) applications.

China, Taiwan and Korea are projected to be the leading regions in spending in 2020. Robust foundry and memory investment in China is expected to propel the region to the top of the total semiconductor equipment market for the first time this year. In 2021 and 2022, Korea is forecast to lead the world in semiconductor equipment investments on the back of a memory recovery and increases in logic investment. Equipment spending in Taiwan will remain robust, powered by leading-edge foundry investment. Most other regions tracked will also see growth during the forecast period.

Wearable Tech Back to a Healthy Development Pace

02/11/2015 | Reed Exhibitions
Wearable tech was a major sensation in 2014. The wearable tech industry generated extensive interest among media, investors, start-ups, wearable tech enthusiasts, technology leaders and trade fairs. Many events were held around wearable products and industry last year. The trend for early 2015 has seen the industry fall back into a healthy developmental pace. Investors are keen to see a return on their capital injections and former start-ups are now reaching maturity.
