https://korean-electronics.com//inquirySemiconductor equipment manufacturers worldwide logged sales of $59.8 billion in 2019, a 7-percent drop from the all-time high of $64.5 billion in 2018. This is according to a recent report by SEMI, the industry association representing the worldwide electronics product design and manufacturing supply chain.
Taiwan claimed the largest market share for new semiconductor equipment last year with sales of $17.12 billion after a 68 percent growth surge, dislodging Korea from the top spot. China maintained its position as the second largest equipment market with sales of $13.45 billion, followed by Korea, at $9.97 billion, after receipts fell by 44 percent. While the new equipment markets contracted in Japan, Europe, and Rest of the World, North America equipment sales jumped 40 percent to $8.15 billion in 2019, the region’s third consecutive annual increase.
Global sales of wafer-processing equipment declined by 6 percent in 2019, while other front-end segment sales grew 9 percent. Assembly and packaging, along with test equipment sales, also faltered, declining 27 percent and 11 percent, respectively, while sales to China rose across all major equipment segments, except for assembly and packaging.
Compiled from data submitted by members of SEMI and the Semiconductor Equipment Association of Japan (SEAJ), the Worldwide SEMS Report is a summary of the monthly billings figures for the global semiconductor equipment industry. Categories cover wafer processing, assembly and packaging, testing, and other front-end equipment. Other front-end includes mask/reticle manufacturing, wafer manufacturing, and fab facilities equipment. <Source:SEMI>
