The semiconductor manufacturing equipment industry group SEMI released a global semiconductor manufacturing equipment market forecast for 2017 on July 13. In 2016, due to the end of the investment in the integrated circuit field, it will only increase by 1.1% over the previous year, and it will recover in 2017, and it is expected to grow by 11.2% year-on-year. By region, mainland China will increase by 30.8% in 2016, surpassing South Korea, Japan, and North America, behind Taiwan, and becoming the second largest market in the world.
The global market size is expected to be USD 41 billion in 2017. It is said that China will grow by 12.9% over the previous year in 2017, reaching 7.2 billion U.S. dollars, and 1.5 times within two years. The South Korean market is expected to recover in 2017, so China will slip from second to third.
Of the 19 semiconductor factories scheduled to start construction globally from 2016 to 2017, 10 are in China. The "three semiconductor giants" of the United States Intel, South Korea's Samsung Electronics and Taiwan's TSMC are stepping up their production capacity.
The Chinese government mentioned in its national strategy to revitalize the semiconductor industry, and local manufacturers supported by the government will also comprehensively promote the construction of factories. According to SEMI, orders from local manufacturers account for 40 to 45% of equipment demand. At present, memory will be the main force.
Regarding the 2017 market size of other countries and regions outside China, Taiwan is expected to grow 5.9% year-on-year to 10 billion U.S. dollars, South Korea to grow 29.5% year-on-year to US $ 7.9 billion, and North America to grow 7.6% year-on-year to US $ 4.9 billion. Japan is expected to decrease 7% year-on-year to $ 4.7 billion.
