2010 semiconductor materials sales at USD 43.55<em>bn</em>

The global semiconductor materials market increased 25% in 2010 compared to 2009 as the semiconductor industry shipped record units. Record device shipments are primarily responsible for the record revenues experienced by the materials industry, surpassing the previous high of USD 42.67<em>bn</em> set in 2007.
Semiconductor materials market revenues totaled USD 43.55 billion globally in 2010. Total wafer fabrication materials and packaging materials were USD 22.93 billion and USD 20.63 billion, respectively. Comparable revenues for these segments in 2009 were USD 17.75 billion for wafer fabrication materials and USD 17.09 billion for packaging materials. Significant increases in silicon and advanced packaging substrates revenues contributed to the year-over-year growth of the total semiconductor materials market.

Japan remains the largest consumer of semiconductor materials with USD 9.20 billion in total sales, though the materials market in Taiwan reached USD 9.11 billion due to its large foundry and advanced packaging base. All regional markets experienced double-digit growth. Rising gold metal prices propelled revenues in regions with strong packaging bases. (The ROW region is defined as Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, other areas of Southeast Asia and smaller global markets).
