Fab Tool Sales Expected to Decline in 2019

eetimes.com, SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 12, 2018 – 

After what is expected to be a second-straight record sales year in 2018, the semiconductor equipment market is projected to decline by 4% next year before recovering to grow by more than 20% in 2020, according to the SEMI trade group.

In its year-end forecast, released on Wednesday (Dec. 12) at the Semicon Japan trade show, SEMI estimated that fab tool sales will grow 9.7% this year to reach a record $62.1 billion. The forecast is consistent with other forecasts released earlier this year, despite slowing sales growth in recent months.

But the forecast calls for tool sales to decline to $56.6 billion next year before rebounding to grow 20.7% in 2020, reaching a new record high of $71.9 billion.
