Although semiconductor materials business development efforts have consistently focused on leading
edge technologies (now <12nm), more than 60% of all wafer starts (by MSI) are still from trailing edge
technology nodes some of which will be counted on to support the growing era of the Internet of Things
(IoT). Estimates for the number of internet connected things is expected to exceed 25 Billion by 2020.
Although the number of IoT semiconductor devices is relatively small, < 5% of total semiconductor
device revenues, the growth is large, >30% per year, in comparison to the total semiconductor device
revenue growth rate of >5.5%. The interrelationship between the technology nodes, devices and
applications related to IoT will be presented in addition to wafer forecasts. Highlighted will be those
process materials that support IoT along with associated forecasts and challenges.
