SEMI released a report, said the original equipment manufacturers of semiconductor manufacturing equipment global sales are expected to reach a record $ 117.5 billion in 2022 (about 790.775 billion yuan), an increase of 14.7%, and is expected to increase to $ 120.8 billion in 2023 (about 812.984 billion yuan) (RMB 812.984 billion) in 2023.
The report notes that the wafer fabrication equipment segment, which includes wafer processing, wafer fabrication facilities and photomask / mask equipment, is expected to grow 15.4% in 2022 to reach a new industry record of $101 billion (approximately RMB 679.73 billion); and 3.2% in 2023 to reach $10.43 billion (approximately RMB 701.93 billion).
SEMI President and CEO Ajit Manocha said the fab equipment sector is expected to reach the $100 billion milestone for the first time in 2022.
IT House learned that the report said that after soaring 86.5% in 2021, the packaging equipment market is expected to grow 8.2% to $7.8 billion (about 52.494 billion yuan) in 2022 and decline slightly by 0.5% to $7.7 billion (about 51.821 billion yuan) in 2023. In addition, the semiconductor test equipment market is expected to grow 12.1% to $8.8 billion (approximately RMB 59.224 billion) in 2022 and another 0.4% in 2023 due to the demand for high performance computing (HPC) applications.
