Fab Tool Spending Projected to Rise for 3rd Straight Year

SAN FRANCISCO , Mar. 21, 2018 – 

A surge in spending on new wafer fabs in China is projected to drive up global spending on fab tools in 2018, the third straight year of increases and the first time that has happened since the mid-1990s.

Total global fab tool spending will increase 9 percent to reach more than $62 billion this year, according to the latest forecast from the SEMI trade association. Spending on tools is forecast to rise an additional 5 percent in 2019, which would mark the fourth straight year of spending increases, said SEMI (San Jose, Calif.).

Most of the expected increases in 2018 and in 2019 will be driven by new fabs under construction in China. A record 26 volume fabs began construction in China in 2017, and they are buying equipment over the next two years, SEMI said.
