SEMICON China Set for China's Booming Semiconductor Manufacturing

SEMI announces technology programs, Tech Investment Forum, and MEMS & Sensors program   

SEMICON China LogoSHANGHAI ─ February 28, 2017 ─ With China expected to become the largest market for semiconductor fab equipment in the next few years, the market opportunity in China has dramatically expanded. This is the backdrop for the expected more than 60,000 professionals that will convene at SEMICON China on March 14-16 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC). SEMI, the event organizer, today announced programming for SEMICON China − the largest and most important gathering of the electronics manufacturing supply chain in China.

With 20, and possibly more, new fab projects underway or announced in China since 2016, spending on fab equipment is forecast to surge to more than $10 billion, annually, by 2018. As a result, China is projected to be the top spending region for fab equipment by 2019, and is likely to approach record all-time levels for annual spending for a single region.

SEMICON China will feature a broad and deep range of programs for attendees to expand their business opportunities:

  • Keynotes: SMIC chairman of the Board Zhou Zixue. ASE Group director and COO Tien Wu, ASML president and CEO Peter Wennink, Intel VP Jun He, Lam Research CEO Martin Anstice, TEL CTO Sekiguchi Akihisa and imec president and CEO Luc Van den hove.
  • Technical and Business Programs:  China Semiconductor Technology International Conference (CSTIC) on March 12-13; China Memory Strategic Forum on March 14; Building China’s IC Ecosystem: Advanced Manufacturing, Assembly & Test (morning) and Equipment and Materials (afternoon) on March 15; Green High-Tech Facility Forum (morning) and Smart Manufacturing Forum (afternoon); also on March 15.
