World Fab Forecast

The World Fab Forecast report uses a bottom up approach based on the total investment needed for any project associated with front-end wafer processing facilities (fabs). Independent of origin, total investments needed for construction and equipment (new, in-house, or refurbished) are tracked, benchmarked with WWSEMS survey data, and the forecast is modeled for fab projects such as new fabs, expansions, or upgrades. The report is updated quarterly.
