Semiconductor Materials Update 
Lara Chamness, SEMI 

While 2012 started out promising, declines in monthly unit shipments and weakening equipment ordering activity during the second half have industry watchers wondering when the next upturn will occur. This presentation will discuss recent revenue trends and provide a forecast through 2014 for semiconductor materials.


Fab Spending and Capacity in 2013!
Christian Gregor Dieseldorff, SEMI

Will fab equipment spending in 2013 see positive or negative growth? How many construction projects will there be next year? What should we expect for capacity growth? This presentation is based on SEMI’s World Fab forecast report which captures ~200 fab projects.  Closely following macroeconomic indicators and possible capex changes such as by TSMC, Samsung and Intel, the data presented forecasts the impact to fab spending and capacity.
