SEMI: 2002 chip equipment market down 32%

SEMICON Japan, that took place this week, brought the updated and less comforting data about the semiconductor equipment market. Basing on October and November sales analysis, Stanley Myers, CEO and president of SEMI (Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International), announced that the worldwide chip-making equipment and materials shipments will reduce by over 32% in 2002 down to $18.9 billions from $28 billions of 2001.

Though SEMI believes the situation will improve within the following years due to the improvements of the industry, indicated by the increased load of facilities in 2002. According to SEMI, already next year capital construction investments will increase up to the 15% equipment market growth ($21.8 billion). In 2004 we should expect another considerable 21% growth ($26.4 billion). And only by 2005 the growth will reduce to 4% (and the market will be $27.5 billions already).
