IC Insights is proud to offer this special 2009 study on the IC industry’s wafer fabrication capacity. IC Insights believes that global IC fab capacity trends have been forever altered by the worst recession in 63 years. Did you knowAll of your old assumptions and forecasts regarding IC capacity trends are no longer valid. With companies struggling to survive the downturn, IC manufacturing strategies have changed dramatically! Consider the following:

  • Capital spending, when expressed as a percent of sales, was at an all-time low in 2008 and will be even lower in 2009.

  • A record amount of capacity is being taken off-line in 2009 and 2010.

  • The number of IC manufacturers adopting the fabless or fab-lite business models continues to grow and pure-play foundries are playing an increasingly vital role in the industry.

The newly updated Global Wafer Capacity Analysis and Forecast report is an ideal tool for understanding the "new realities" of the market. This study greatly assists IC materials and equipment suppliers in creating their long-term strategic marketing plans by showing current industry capacity, projecting future capacity loads, and dissecting the capacity in several categories and regions.
