From the beginning, the semiconductor industry has crested wave after wave of innovation in technologies, applications and platforms to chart a course of sustained growth. This trend continues today, with semiconductors increasingly pervasive in both business and consumer products. The materials industry acts to facilitate and enable these waves through innovation in products and manufacturing generally invisible to the end user. This webinar will provide insight into the latest market trends, where we are in their lifecycles of these trends, and what this means for materials manufacturers. Speakers from IHS Markit and Mentor will discuss current trends in the global semiconductor market, the technologies that underpin these markets, and methods for evaluating market growth curves and the maturity of these markets, paving the way to better understand the future we face.

Len Jelinek has focused his research on capacity management and technology transitions within the semiconductor industry. He works with clients to access individual corporate strategies that may be impacted by additional wafer manufacturing capacity in China as well as other global locations.
Len has developed an extensive database of wafer manufacturing suppliers both leading IDM's and pure play foundries service providers. This database can be used by clients to define corporate manufacturing strategies such as expand internal capacity versus transitioning to an outsourcing model.
Len joined the company after 28 years of experience in semiconductor manufacturing and business management in the semiconductor industry. He has gained invaluable experience with specific emphasis on program management, financial analysis, and manufacturing during his employment with ON Semiconductor and Motorola.
Len holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Arizona State University and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
