Highlights of the November 2012 Edition of the Fab Databases

The November 2012 edition of the World Fab ForecastFabFuturesWorld Fab WatchOpto/LED Fab Watch, and the Opto/LED Fab Forecast databases have been published and is available to our existing subscribers. Here are a few highlights from our World Fab Forecast:database:

Key Points

  • Fab equipment spending flat (0%) in 2013 (US$32.4B) with 182 projects 
  • Fab construction spending in 2013 3.7% (US$5.8B) with 34 project
  • Installed capacity 2012: 3.9%;  2013: 3.4%
  • In 2013: less additions for System LSI, more for Flash, some more for MPU
  • Strong increase of capacity for tech nodes of 17nm to 13nm as well as for 24nm to 18nm in 2013

Activity Report

  • Since the last report published in August 2012, we have made 307 updates on 211 facilities.
  • Added 15 new facilities (4 new and 11 existing).
  • 6 facilities were closed and 3 fab projects were cancelled.
  • The reports lists a total of 1155 facilities of which188 are LED fabs. 
  • There are 78 facilities with various probabilities which have started or will start volume production in 2012 or later.
  • The reports lists major investments (construction projects and equipping): 2012: 241 facilities; 2013: 194

Please take the opportunity to review our fab databases listed below.   Our databases deliver the latest forecast and a complete analysis on frontend fabs and foundries worldwide and are ideal resources to empower your market research. 

We can also work with you to create a custom fab database tailor to your needs and budget. And we can also create a regional database for fabs in North America, Asia or Europe.  Please feel free to contact Ed Hall at ehall@semi.org.

Need customized data? 

Don’t see what you need? We can work with you to create a custom database tailor to your needs and budget. The following are custom reports we have created in the past:

  • Fab Transitional Report (listing of fabs to-be-sold, sold, closed, and maybe closed)
  • Historical Fab Report (spending per fab and wafer capacity from 1994 – 2010)
  • Fab Construction and Equipping Spending Trend (1996-2010)
  • Regional Fab Capacity Report (2000 – 2010)
  • Active 300 mm Semiconductor Fabs
  • more..
