Analysts fear for fab shortage in 2010

Posted on Tuesday, June 23 2009 @ 03:36:37 CEST by

Future Horizons analysts warn there will not be enough semiconductor fab capacity next year as executives have reacted to harshly to the economic meltdown:
Said CEO Malcolm Penn, in his latest report on the semiconductor market: "Looking ahead to 2010, demand should start to accelerate in line with the anticipated global economic recovery, tightening the capacity screw still further. And with 2010's capacity fixed by 2009's spend, at a currently estimated $20 billion, this spend represents barely one third its 2000 $60 billion peak. That means, in round number numbers, 2010's new capacity will be only 40K 200mm wafer stars/week, minus any capacity closures."

He continued: "We have said it before and we will say it again. There will not be enough 2010 capacity in place to meet demand. This is a fab shortage waiting to happen."
