"Given its position in the global market, as well as its strong continued investment in 300 mm fab capacity, we expect the Taiwan market to experience exceptional and sustained growth over the coming years.”

So far in 2007, the new equipment market in Taiwan experienced a 54 percent growth over the same period in 2006, posting about $5.17 billion in revenues, and is the largest market spending on wafer processing, assembly & packaging, and test equipment.
