SAN JOSE, Calif. – September 5, 2016 – SEMI, a leading supplier of independent semiconductor market research, today announced SEMI FabView, a mobile-friendly, interactive version of its popular World Fab Forecast quarterly report for electronic supply chain players and analysts. The new product was announced during the press conference at SEMICON Taiwan, where 43,000 industry professionals are convening this week. SEMI FabView tracks spending and capacities of over 1,100 facilities, including over 60 future facilities, across industry segments from Analog, Power, Logic, MPU, Memory, and Foundry to MEMS and LED fabs.

SEMI FabView features high-level fab data such as capacity, technology nodes, and equipment spending, with other device manufacturing insights such as fabs by region, wafer size, product type and construction status. This new online platform enables anytime access on the changes taking place in fab construction and expansion, production volume, device types, and more. The ability to quickly access the latest data for quarterly business reviews or earnings calls, or to validate an investment decision, is a key feature of this new product.  

“SEMI FabView, an online platform, provides SEMI members and customers access to the industry benchmark World Fab Forecast database information in an entirely new way,” said Dan Tracy, senior director of SEMI Industry Research & Statistics for SEMI. “By adding the interactive elements of SEMI FabView, subscribers now have on-the-go real-time access to expert analysis that can be implemented in their models or forecasts.”

SEMI FabView users can:

  • view forecast for equipment and construction spending, capacity changes, and fab status from new plans to closures
  • organize data views by filtering data and accessing analyst commentary for each company and fab to see the latest SEMI forecast
  • access forecast data by company, geographical region, wafer size, technology geometry and specific stages of fab life cycle ─ from announced and planned new fabs to fabs that are in transition (e.g., when a cleanroom is converting to a larger wafer size or a different product type)

SEMI FabView is available for a product demo at SEMICON Taiwan 2016 (September 7-9). To schedule a demo, please contact Clark Tseng at or contact
