200mm wafer demand driving growth in Asia


Aug. 08, 2018 – 

The number of 200mm wafer fabs in the world will increase from 194 in 2017 to 203 by 2022 and 56 established fabs are looking to increase manufacturing capacity. As a result, global capacity is set to increase by 600,000 wafer starts per month to reach 6 million wafer starts per month by the end of 2022, SEMI said. Only six facilities plan to reduce manufacturing, SEMI said.

The product types driving demand are MEMS, power, logic and more general foundry.

The growth in 200mm manufacturing capacity is substantially based in Asia with Europe making no contribution at all. China is expected to account for 44 percent of growth, followed by Southeast Asia (19 percent), Taiwan (10 percent) and the Americas (8 percent).
