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.
