US Demand for Semiconductor Machinery to Total $7.4 Billion in 2021


Cleveland, OH, February 8, 2018 — US demand for semiconductor machinery is forecast to reach $7.4 billion in 2021, according to Semiconductor Machinery: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Growth in demand for wafer processing equipment will account for the majority of value increases. Ongoing expansion in global production of mobile electronics will support demand for smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient logic integrated circuits, as well as the increasingly advanced wafer processing machinery required for production. Specifically, rising adoption of lithography equipment that utilizes extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology will spur gains.

Semiconductor assembly machinery demand is forecast to grow the fastest among the product segments. Intensifying production of increasingly compact electronic systems for use in mobile devices will drive demand for more sophisticated semiconductor assembly equipment. For example, semiconductor device manufacturers such as integrated device manufacturers, outsourced semiconductor assembly and test providers, and foundries will require systems capable of mounting ever-smaller semiconductors.

These and other key insights are featured in Semiconductor Machinery: United States. This report forecasts to 2021 US semiconductor machinery demand and shipments in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of:

  • wafer processing
  • testing
  • assembly

To illustrate historical trends, total demand, total shipments, the various segments, and trade are provided in annual series from 2006 to 2016.
