  1. 1. Industry Research and StatisticsFrontend Semiconductor Fabs Trends & Forecast June 2012
  2. 2. About UsThe SEMI Industry Research and Statistics group provides market data and marketresearch reports covering semiconductor capital equipment, photovoltaicequipment, semiconductor materials, packaging materials, semiconductor,optoelectronics, and high brightness LED fabs.For our major reports, we collect actual data from suppliers around the worldfollowing strict professional standards of confidentiality. Our reports provide trends,forecast, and outlook to help the industry make important investment, strategic,and business planning decisions.For additional information regarding our products and our data collection program,please visit us at or contact us at
  3. 3. Highlights• Since the February 2012 report, the number of fab construction projects has increased: 45 in 2012 (up from 39) and 24 in 2013 (up from 21).• Fab construction spending will decline now only -6% in 2012 to US$6.2B. This is a big improvement from the -28% decline forecasted in February.• Expect year-over-year fab construction spending in 2013 to improve drastically to about -1% ($6.1B), which improved from -39% decline forecasted in February.• Fab equipment spending for 2012 is expected to increase to US$39.5B or about 2% growth from the US$38.8B and 0% growth rate reported in February.• In 2013, fab equipment spending could reach over US$46.3B or 17% growth. This will be an all-time record for fab equipment spending.• Current capacity growth in 2012 is slower than reported in February: from 16M (equivalent 200mm wafers per month) to 15.87M or from 5.3% to 3.6% growth. 2013 is expected to increase about 7% to 17M.
