Global Semiconductor Materials Sales Hit New High of $51.9 Billion

MILPITAS, California, April 2, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —  The global semiconductor materials market grew 10.6 percent in 2018, propelling semiconductor materials revenue to $51.9 billion to eclipse the previous high of $47.1 billion set in 2011, according to the SEMI Materials Market Data Subscription announced by SEMI, the industry association representing the global electronics product design and manufacturing supply chain.

SEMI® connects 2,000+ member companies and 1.3 million professionals worldwide to advance the technology and business of electronics manufacturing. SEMI members are responsible for the innovations in materials, design, equipment, software, devices, and services that enable smarter, faster, more powerful, and more affordable electronic products.

The standing record for semiconductor materials revenue fell as the chip market's record revenue of $412.2 billion in 2017 also gave way to an all-time high – $468.8 billion – last year, according to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS).

Wafer fabrication materials and packaging materials revenues totaled $32.2 billion and $19.7* billion, respectively, in 2018, for year-over-year increases of 15.9 percent and 3.0 percent for the two segments.

For the ninth consecutive year, Taiwan, at $11.4 billion, was the largest consumer of semiconductor materials on the strength of its large foundry and advanced packaging base. Korea rose in the rankings to claim the second spot while mainland China fell to third last year. The materials markets in South Korea, Europe, Taiwan, and mainland China saw the strongest revenue growth, while the North America, Rest of World (ROW) and Japan markets experienced single-digit growth. (The ROW region is defined as Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, other areas of Southeast Asia and smaller global markets.)
