Semiconductor Equipment Industry Globally & in China Discussed in New Report Published at MarketPublishers.com29 May 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – In 2012, the CAPEX on equipment is estimated to reach USD 38.9 billion, among which, the expenditure on wafer fab equipment will be USD 31.3 billion, a decrease compared with that in 2011.
The semiconductor equipment market is highly concentrated, with the share of the largest manufacturer in the corresponding sector usually exceeding 50% or even 90%. Thus, Applied Material’s market share reaches 93% in the CMP (chemical vapor deposition) sector, and its market share in the PVD (physical vapor deposition or sputtering) sector is 83%. Even the second largest manufacturer may not be able to survive long, so the semiconductor equipment industry is characterized by frequent mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
New market research report “ Global and China Semiconductor Equipment Industry Report, 2011-2012” developed by ResearchInChina has been recently published by Market Publishers Ltd.
