Global silicon wafer shipments decline in Q1 2023

SEMI says that global silicon wafer shipments slipped 9.0% quarter-over-quarter to 3,265 million square inches in the first quarter of 2023 and 11.3% from the 3,679 million square inches recorded during the same quarter last year.

“The decline in silicon wafer shipments reflects softening semiconductor demand since early this year,” says Anna-Riikka Vuorikari-Antikainen, Chairman of SEMI SMG and Chief Commercial Officer at Okmetic, in a press release. “Memory and consumer electronics have seen the largest drops in demand while the market for automotive and industrial applications remains more stable.”
