SEMI: Record revenues for global semi materials market

The global semiconductor materials market increased 7% in 2011 compared to 2010, with record revenues in 2011 of USD47.86bn, surpassing 2010’s record revenues of USD 44.85bn. The third highest revenue on record was in 2007 when revenue was USD42.67bn.
Total wafer fabrication materials and packaging materials were $24.20 billion and $23.67 billion, respectively. Comparable revenues for these segments in 2010 were $23.05 billion for wafer fabrication materials and $21.80 billion for packaging materials. Steady revenue growth in all materials categories contributed to the year-over-year growth of the total semiconductor materials market, though currency effects were a contributing factor to this growth.

For the second year in a row, Taiwan is the largest consumer of semiconductor materials with $10.04 billion in total sales due to its large foundry and advanced packaging base. The materials market in Japan contracted 1 percent, while all other regional materials markets experienced modest growth. The market in South Korea was driven by fab materials, while the market in China was driven by packaging materials in 2011. (The ROW region is defined as Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, other areas of Southeast Asia and smaller global markets).
