Though contracting in 2005, the semiconductor capital equipment market will record billings at the third highest level in history. While the industry remains cautious, positive growth is anticipated in 2006 given the strength in the 300mm production ramp. There are 11 new 300 mm fabs expected to begin production in 2006 and a possible 12 new 300mm fabs in 2007. Paralleling the 300mm fab investment is the integration of new materials into the wafer fabs and into semiconductor packages. Both the fab and packaging materials grew in 2005, and growth is forecasted for 2006.
