Semiconductor Fabrication Growth for 2018 and 2018

Estimates through SEMI.org for 2018 and 2018 fab expansion are within the article underneath. 

Then again Intel/ Micron’s XPoint reminiscence creation in 2018 and tendencies of alternative form of 3-D processing will affect fab strains capability and the expansion of semiconductor processing apparatus.

Some key issues from the item:
“Fab apparatus spending- ….job within the 3-D NAND, 10nm Good judgment, and Foundry segments is anticipated to push apparatus spending as much as $36 billion in 2018, 1.5% over 2018, and to $40.7 billion in 2018, up 13%.”


“modern applied sciences…additionally in 3-D applied sciences….extra conversions of older fabs would possibly happen, but in addition further new fabs and features would possibly start development.”

SEMIforecasts 19 new fabs and features for 2018/7 ^(http://www.electronicsweekly.com/news/business/19-new-fabs-and-lines-for-20167-2018-06/)


By means of David Manners  10th June 2018

Nineteen new fabs and features are forecasted to start out development in 2018 and 2018, in line with SEMI.

Whilst semiconductor fab apparatus spending is off to a gradual get started in 2018, it’s anticipated to realize momentum in the course of the finish of the 12 months. For 2018, 1.5% expansion over 2018 is anticipated whilst 13% expansion is forecast in 2018.

Fab apparatus spending – together with new, secondary, and in-house – was once down 2% in 2018. Then again, job within the 3-D NAND, 10nm Good judgment, and Foundry segments is anticipated to push apparatus spending as much as $36 billion in 2018, 1.5% over 2018, and to $40.7 billion in 2018, up 13%.

Apparatus might be bought for current fabs, strains which can be being transformed to modern generation, in addition to apparatus going into new fabs and features that started development within the prior 12 months.

Desk 1 presentations the areas the place new fabs and features are anticipated to be in-built 2018 and 2018. Those tasks have a likelihood of 60% or upper, in line with SEMI’s information. Whilst some tasks are already underway, others could also be topic to delays or driven into the next 12 months.

Breaking down the 19 tasks through wafer dimension, 12 of the fabs and features are for 300mm (12-inch), four for 200mm, and three LED fabs (150mm, 100mm, and 50mm). No longer together with LEDs, the prospective put in capability of a lot of these fabs and features is estimated at virtually 210,000 wafer begins per thirty days (in 300mm equivalents) for fabs starting development in 2018 and 330,000 wafer begins per thirty days (in 300mm equivalents) for fabs starting development in 2018.

As well as, the transition to modern applied sciences (as we will see in planar applied sciences, but in addition in 3-D applied sciences) creates a discount in put in capability inside of an current fab. To make amends for this aid, extra conversions of older fabs would possibly happen, but in addition further new fabs and features would possibly start development.
