Further Growth Seen for Semiconductor Equipment and Materials at SEMI ISS 2015
ISS 2015 explores the trends taking place in the industry from economic, market, technology, and manufacturing perspectives.


Underdog DRAM: DRAM Capacity Crawls out of a Slump, but Sector Faces Obstacles

By Christian G. Dieseldorff, SEMI
The DRAM sector experienced a beating during and following the 2008-2009 financial crisis. The sector eventually contracted in both the number of suppliers and in the installed fab production capacity. Today, the outlook is more positive.


New Secondary Fab Equipment Market Report Available for Purchase

SEMI completed a thorough study of the secondary fab equipment market to identify the market size and to capture key trends and issues impacting this industry segment. The report is now available for purchase.


SEMICON Korea 2015

Enormous Supply Chain Opportunity in Korean Semiconductor Market

Over the past decade, the semiconductor industry in Korea has spent over $130 billion on equipment and materials. Currently, it is estimated that $14 billion to $15 billion will be spent on equipment and materials in 2015.


MEMS Tech Seminar: A Continuing Success

The 2015 Summit will feature plenary conferences, exhibition space, one-on-one business meetings, and networking opportunities in the realm of MEMS.


Will New Policy in China Trigger Big Changes?

By Dr. Adam He, SEMI
A new policy echoes strongly across the semiconductor industry and attracts global attention due to the ambitious development targets and sizeable support for a national IC industry investment fund.


SEMI Anticipates 2015 as a Year of Expansion Global Free Trade
