While the materials market have become fragmented, and economic growth drivers outweigh technology, the challenges of meeting the leading edge needs have not reduced, and materials demands continue to change. Added to this, new device developments such as 3D NAND will change the mix of materials requirements, and offer both threats, and opportunities for chemical and materials suppliers.
