Semi capex to grow 10%

Global semiconductor capital spending is expected to increase 10.2% in 2017 to $77.7 billion, says Gartner, driven by memory investment,

However, the spending is projected to come down to $73.2 billion by 2020.

A decline of 7.3% is expected in 2019.

“The NAND flash shortage was more pronounced in the first quarter of 2017 than the previous forecast, leading to over 20 percent growth of etch and chemical vapour deposition (CVD) segments in 2017 with a strong capacity ramp-up for 3D NAND,” says Gartner’s Takashi Ogawa.

Gartner said that spending on wafer fab equipment will peak in 2018.

“While the most likely scenario will still keep positive growth in 2018, there is a concern that the growth will turn negative,” says Ogawa.
