SEMI forecasts that shipments of polished and epitaxial silicon wafers will grow by 8.2%  this year measured in square inches.

This year shipments will total 11,448 million square inches; in 2018,  11,814 million square inches will be shipped and in 2019, shipments will total 12,235 million square inches.

Total wafer shipments this year are expected to exceed the market high set in 2016 and are forecast to continue shipping at record levels in 2018 and 2019.

“Silicon shipment volumes are expected to ship at historic highs for this year and into 2019,” says Dan Tracy, senior director of Industry Research & Statistics at SEMI, “the expectation is for steady annual growth due to the proliferation of connected devices required for automotive, medical, wearables, and high-performance computing applications.”
