SEMI® Semiconductor and LED Fab Databases

Semiconductor, LED, and MEMS Fabs and Foundries


Semiconductor, LED, and MEMS fabs and foundries play a vital role in the industry. Over the years, there have been sizeable investments in the building of these complex front-end fabs. Also, there have been fabs that have invested in converting the fabs to accommodate larger wafer sizes changes as well as changes in technology nodes. Just recently, there has been news about fabs that have started to spend again in the area of capital equipment.

As more of these wafer fabs are built (or converted), information is needed to analyze the investment requirements, construction spending, semiconductor equipment spending, first silicon, geometries (technology nodes), volume production, and upgrades/expansion.

The SEMI databases deliver the latest fab trends and a complete analysis on semiconductor fabs and foundries worldwide and are ideal resources to empower your market research. Identify target customers and analyze both investment and technology trends with a comprehensive and dynamic range of information designed to help meet your market research needs faster and easier than ever.

 The SEMI Fab databases uses a bottom-up approach methodology, providing high-level summaries and graphs; and in-depth analyses of capital expenditures, wafer fab capacities, technology and products by fab. Additionally, our World Fab Forecast database provides forecasts for the next 18 months by quarter. These tools are invaluable for understanding how the semiconductor manufacturing will look in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and learning more about CAPEX for construction projects, fab equipping, wafer capacity, technology levels, and products.

Need customized data?

 Don’t see what you need? We can work with you to create a custom database tailor to your needs and budget. The following are custom reports that can be created:

  • Fab Transitional Report (listing of fabs to-be-sold, sold, closed, and maybe closed)
  • Historical Fab Report (spending per fab and wafer capacity from 1994 – 2013)
  • Fab Construction and Equipping Spending Trend (1996-2013)
  • Regional Wafer Fab Capacity Report (2000 – 2013)
  • Active 200mm and 300 mm Semiconductor Fabs
