Global silicon wafer shipments set a new record in Q3 2022

Worldwide silicon wafer shipments reached a new record of 3,741 million square inches (MSI) in the third quarter of 2022, increasing 1.0% QoQ and growing 2.5% from the 3,649 MSI recorded during the same quarter last year, reports SEMI.

“While the semiconductor industry has faced macroeconomic headwinds, the silicon industry continues to show quarter-over-quarter shipment increases,” says Anna-Riikka Vuorikari-Antikainen, Chairman of SEMI SMG and Chief Commercial Officer at Okmetic, in a press release. “As the role of silicon wafers is fundamental in the broader cyclical industry, we remain confident in long-term growth.”
