The SEMI World Fab Forecast provides high level summaries, charts, and graphs; in-depth analyses of capital expenditure, capacity, technology and products, down to the detail of each fab; and forecast over six quarters. The data in this report provides data found in FabFutures, World Fab Watch, Fab Construction Monitor and the Fab Equipment Monitor. It is essentially all of our popular fab products rolled-up into one convenient database. Similar to the World Fab Watch, the report includes interactive pivot charts and tables enabling you to customize your own view and reports.
The database includes over 1,000 records of front-end semiconductor fabs and foundries such as TSMC, UMC, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, SMIC, Samsung, Intel, Toshiba, Micron, SK Hynix, Powerchip, Texas Instruments, Renesas, STMicro, Fujitsu, Nanya, Panasonic, NXP, Winbond, Sharp, NXP, Infineon, Magna Chip, X-Fab Silicon Foundries, and many more.

World Fab Forecast is compiled from publicly available information, including capital spending plans, announced fab plans and ream schedules. SEMI verifies this information by making up to 50 inquiries a week and periodic visits to semiconductor companies.
