Growth Predicted for Semiconductor Industry

May 6, 2010
15-20% growth in semiconductor sales is predicted for 2010, according to SEMI.

\What a difference a year makes for the semiconductor industry, according to Daniel Tracy, senior director, SEMI Industry Research and Statistics.Following the strong rebound in the second half of 2009, most analysts and industry watchers are forecasting 15-20% growth in semiconductor sales for 2010.
This would result in a record year for revenues and unit sales. And if growth is in the range of 25% - as some are forecasting - semiconductor revenues could approach $280 billion or more for the year.
