Global Semiconductor Product Market Forecast! If It's Not One Thing It's Another

Global Semiconductor Product Market Forecast! If It's Not One Thing It's Another

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of “Global Semiconductor Product Market Forecast! If It's Not One Thing It's Another” to their offering.

Where 2007 was characterized by excess capacity and high demand, 2008 will be characterized by better capacity balance, but softening demand. The net result is that we are forecasting revenue growth in 2008 to be only 2.4%. We are hopeful that the soft economy will be short lived, leading to semiconductor revenue growth of 7.4% in 2009, followed by 9.7% and 11.6% in 2010 and 2011, respectively, before slowing again in 2012 to 2.8% growth.

This report analyzes the overall economy and resulting underlying demand for semiconductors and how the demand matches with projections for semiconductor capacity, as well as other underlying factors that will affect semiconductor demand and pricing.

All historical and forecasted data in this report are consistent with the data in the companion report IN0804278SSF Global Semiconductor End-Use Forecast? Market Diversity, It?s a Good Thing.

The report provides:

-WW and regional GDP forecasts

-Semiconductor capital expenditure forecast

-WW semiconductor unit, ASP, and revenue forecasts

-Semiconductor revenue forecasts by region and WSTS product categories

Key findings from the report:

-Semiconductor revenue is projected to grow by 2.4% in 2008 to US$261.9 billion

-Improvement seen in 2009 with 7.4% growth

-In 2010, revenue will break through the $300 billion barrier reaching $308.8 billion
