World gross sales of general semiconductor production apparatus by way of unique apparatus producers are forecast to succeed in a file $117.5 billion in 2022, emerging 14.7% from the former business excessive of $102.5 billion in 2021, and build up to $120.8 billion in 2023.
Each the front-end and back-end semiconductor apparatus segments are contributing to the marketplace growth. The wafer fab apparatus section, which incorporates wafer processing, fab amenities, and masks/reticle apparatus, is projected to amplify 15.4% to a brand new business file of $101 billion in 2022, adopted by way of a three.2% build up to $104.3 billion in 2023.
“In step with the semiconductor business’s made up our minds push to extend and improve capability, the wafer fab apparatus section is poised to succeed in the $100 billion milestone for the primary time in 2022,” stated Ajit Manocha, president and CEO of SEMI. “Secular tendencies throughout a various vary of markets, coupled with robust investments in virtual infrastructure, are powering any other file 12 months.”
Pushed by way of call for for each modern and mature procedure nodes, the foundry and good judgment segments are anticipated to extend 20.6% year-over-year to $55.2 billion in 2022 and any other 7.9%, to $59.5 billion, in 2023. The 2 segments account for greater than part of general wafer fab apparatus gross sales.
Robust call for for reminiscence and garage continues to give a contribution to DRAM and NAND apparatus spending this 12 months. The DRAM apparatus section is main the growth in 2022 with anticipated expansion of 8% to $17.1 billion. The NAND apparatus marketplace is projected to develop 6.8% to $21.1 billion this 12 months. DRAM and NAND apparatus expenditures are anticipated to slide 7.7% and a couple of.4%, respectively, in 2023.
After surging 86.5% in 2021, the meeting and packaging apparatus section is anticipated to develop 8.2% to $7.8 billion in 2022 and edge down 0.5% to $7.7 billion in 2023. The semiconductor take a look at apparatus marketplace is forecast to develop 12.1% to $8.8 billion in 2022 and any other 0.4% in 2023 on call for for high-performance computing (HPC) packages.
Domestically, Taiwan, China, and Korea are projected to stay the highest 3 apparatus patrons in 2022. Taiwan is anticipated to regain the highest place in 2022 and 2023, adopted by way of China and Korea. Apparatus spending for different areas tracked, except for for Remainder of Global (ROW), is anticipated to develop in 2022 and 2023.
