Global Semiconductor Materials Market Revenues Slip 1.1 Percent in 2019, SEMI Reports

MILPITAS, California, March 31, 2020 — (PRNewswire) —  Global semiconductor materials market revenues edged down 1.1 percent in 2019, SEMI, the global industry association representing the electronics manufacturing and design supply chain, reported today in its Materials Market Data Subscription (MMDS).

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. SEMI builds connections that help its members prosper, create new markets, and address common industry challenges together. Visit http://www.semi.org

While worldwide total wafer fabrication materials logged a slight decrease of 0.4 percent, from $33.0 billion to $32.8 billion, wafer fab materials, process chemicals, sputtering targets, and CMP registered declines of more than 2 percent year-over-year (YoY). Packaging materials slipped 2.3 percent, from $19.7 billion to $19.2 billion, in 2019. The only two categories to notch increases last year were substrate and other packaging materials.

For the 10th consecutive year, Taiwan, at $11.3 billion, was the largest consumer of semiconductor materials on the strength of its large foundry and advanced packaging base. Korea remained in the second spot, while, Mainland China, the only materials market to register an increase in 2019, was third. All other regions saw flat revenue or low single-digit declines.
