March 20, 2013


SurplusGLOBAL, Inc., the leader in the secondary semiconductor equipment market, presented the Secondary Semiconductor Equipment Market forecast  2013 at the Semicon China Conference


Currently the Semiconductor industry market is divided. First, advancements in wafer size and a focus on next generation product and secondly a focus on cost reduction in mature technologies, leading to an increased demand of secondary equipment in the LED, PV(Photovoltaic) and MEMS manufacturing markets.


Secondary equipment is considered both an environmentally friendly and cost reduction planning solution. The secondary equipment market size has experienced continuous growth over the past three years. In 2012 the market size was estimated to be around 30 billion US dollars, with 200mm wafer capturing 90% of this market. In 2013, demand of 300mm wafer equipment is expected to capture some of the demand.


With growth in demand, distribution and services are becoming more critical every year. The number of Fab facilities in the United States and Europe continue to see decline, while in Asia there has been continued investment in the China, Taiwan and South Korean markets. The Asian market accounts for approximately 80% of the semiconductor equipment market.
