Taiwan in 2014: Fab Equipment Spending

Taiwan in 2014: Largest Region for Fab Equipment Spending with over US$ 10.3 Billion

SEMICON Taiwan will be held September 3-5

According to the May 2014 World Fab Forecast, the three largest regions in 2014 for fab equipment spending will be Taiwan with over US$10.3 billion, the Americas with over US$6.8 billion, and Korea with over US$6.3 billion.  In 2015, these same regions will lead in spending: Taiwan will spend over US$11 billion, Korea over US$8 billion, and the Americas almost US$7 billion.  Although less construction projects will occur during 2014 and 2015, there are still a few significant new fabs being constructed or in planning stages, in regions such as Europe/Mideast, Japan, U.S., and Taiwan.
