January 2010 Global Leadframe Shipments
There was a -5.6% decline in the monthly shipments of leadframes in January, though January-February is historically a bit slower time for these shipments.
The data is based on the Material Market Data Subscription (MMDS) which contains 10 segments for wafer fab related materials and 7 segments for packaging related materials. In addition, quarterly revenues are included for photoresist and ancillaries. Shipment numbers are included for silicon (used in semiconductor applications) and leadframe shipment (monthly).
