2008 Edition of The McClean Report Now Shipping

Latest edition describes several new dynamics impacting the IC industry

Scottsdale, Arizona — February 6, 2008 — IC Insights has started shipping the 2008 edition of its McClean Report—A Complete Analysis and Forecast of the Integrated Circuit Industry. Now in its 11th year, this highly acclaimed study provides historical IC market data, detailed information on the current state of the industry, and a sound, unbiased five-year forecast of the IC market.

For 2008, The McClean Report explains that the industry has started down the path of significant structural change that promises to transform the very foundation of the business. Major changes include:

  • The IC industry’s recent evolution from one large economic cycle into four or five sub-cycles.
  • A "collision course" now being followed by the IC foundries and the IC manufacturers moving to the "fab-lite" business model.
  • Declining semiconductor capital spending as a percent of sales ratio.
  • Potential impact on IC costs from the expected delay in moving from 300mm to 450mm wafers.

Moreover, The McClean Report 2008 details why IC Insights forecasts that the average annual growth rate for the IC market over the next five years will be at least 10%.

The McClean Report 2008 is available for $2,790 in CD-ROM or three-ring binder format, or for $3,285 as a bundled CD-binder set. An Internet access password is available as a $695 option. For company-wide use, a multi-user corporate license costs $5,990 and comes with a CD, binder, and Internet access password.
