Research and Markets: 2014 Report on the International and Chinese Semiconductor Equipment Industry

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/knz3jn/global_and) has announced the addition of the "2014 Report on the International and Chinese Semiconductor Equipment Industry" report to their offering.

After two years of recession, the semiconductor equipment market is projected to achieve growth in 2014. In 2011, the semiconductor equipment market size hit a record high of USD43.532 billion, but it witnessed a drop by 15.2% in 2012 and a further decline by 8.1% in 2013.

The reduction came mainly as the steep decrease of backlog orders from North America and South Korea. Notably, the contracted orders from North America resulted largely from the glooming PC market and Intel's reduction of capital expenditure for equipment, while the shrinkage of orders from South Korea was heavily duel to the suspension of investment in DRAM.

The semiconductor equipment industry is experiencing ceaseless integration. Take Applied Material for example, it took over second-ranked Tokyo Electron in 2013, further consolidating its position with the market occupancy in the etching market on a big rise.

The estimate shows that Taiwan semiconductor equipment market size will bag USD10.99 billion by 2014 and that the figure by 2015 will slightly decline to USD10.88 billion.
