200mm Semiconductor Fab Capability Set to Surge 21% to Mitigate Provide-Demand Imbalance, SEMI Stories

MILPITAS, Calif. — April 11, 2022 — Semiconductor producers worldwide are on monitor to spice up 200mm fab capability by 1.2 million wafers, or 21%, from the beginning of 2020 to the tip of 2024 to hit a document excessive of 6.9 million wafers per thirty days, SEMI introduced in the present day in its 200mm Fab Outlook Report. After climbing to $5.3 billion final 12 months, 200mm fab gear spending is predicted to be $4.9 billion in 2022 as 200mm fab utilization stays at excessive ranges and the worldwide semiconductor trade works to beat the chip scarcity.

“Wafer producers will add 25 new 200mm strains over the five-year interval to assist meet rising demand for functions akin to 5G, automotive and Web of Issues (IoT) units that depend on units like analog, energy administration and show driver built-in circuits (ICs), MOSFETs, microcontroller items (MCUs) and sensors,” mentioned Ajit Manocha, SEMI president and CEO.

The SEMI 200mm Fab Outlook Report, overlaying the 12 years from 2013 to 2024, additionally reveals that foundries will account for greater than 50% of fab capability worldwide this 12 months, adopted by analog at 19% and discrete/energy at 12%. Regionally, China will lead the world in 200mm capability with 21% share in 2022, adopted by Japan with 16% and Taiwan and Europe/Mideast at 15% every.

Tools investments are projected to stay above $3 billion in 2023, with the foundry sector accounting for 54%, adopted by discrete/energy at 20% and analog at 19%.

The SEMI 200mm Fab Outlook Report lists greater than 330 fabs and contours and consists of 64 adjustments throughout 47 fabs since its most up-to-date replace in September 2021.
