Q2 silicon wafer area shipments were up 4.2% on Q1, says SEMI’s Silicon Manufacturers Group (SMG).

Total Q2 silicon wafer area shipments were 2,978 million square inches up from the 2,858 million square inches shipped in Q1.

New quarterly total area shipments are 10.1% higher than Q2 2016 shipments and are at their highest recorded quarterly level.

“For the fifth consecutive quarter, global silicon wafer volume shipments have shipped at record levels,” said Chungwei (C W) Lee, chairman of SEMI SMG. “These record levels are being driven by both 200mm and 300mm shipments.”

For the past six quarters, the wafer area shipment figures are:

Q1 2016 2,538;  Q2 2016 2,706;  Q3 2016 2,730;  Q4 2016 2,764;  Q1 2017 2,858; Q2 2017 2,978.
