Asian Chip Manufacturing Capacity Growing At Double Digit Rate


Semiconductor manufacturing in Asia has been increasing at an impressive pace, and that trend will continue for at least the next several years, reports In-Stat ( Asian semiconductor manufacturing capacity will increase at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.8% from 2006–2011, the high-tech market research firm says.

“The pure play foundries are becoming more important as outsourcing from Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDMs) is on the upswing,” says Mayank Jain, In-Stat analyst. “Pure play foundries have maintained their lead in developing leading-edge process technologies. DRAM and Flash manufacturing capacity in the region is also witnessing substantial growth.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

* There were twenty-five 300mm fabs operational in the Asia Pacific region in 2006.
* Singapore will experience the highest growth rate due to fresh investments from leading memory makers.
* In 2006, Taiwan had the most 300mm capacity, followed by South Korea.
