TSMC: No chip industry recovery until 2012

Posted on Monday, February 23 2009 @ 15:19:58 CET by


TSMC chairman Morris Chang told Wall Street Journal that he sees no improvement in the semiconductor industry, his customers are still cutting back demand for wafers. Chang believes it will take until 2012 before the total revenue of the semiconductor industry gets back to the same level as 2008.
"I think it will be 2012 before the total revenue of the semiconductor industry gets back to the '08 level," said Chang, who has worked in the industry for more than 50 years. He founded TSMC, the world's largest contract chip manufacturer, in 1987.

Last month, TSMC reported a 64 percent drop in profit for the fourth quarter of 2008, compared with the same period the year before. Its sales were down 31 percent. The news came on the heels of Intel reporting a steep drop in profit for the fourth quarter. Lora Ho, chief financial officer of TSMC, said in a statement then: "The global economic recession continues to worsen. Customers...continue to pare their inventories aggressively, resulting in a further significant cutback of wafer demand."
