Fab equipment spending since 2004 (click to enlarge)
SEMI's predictions for semiconductor fabrication facility spending suggest record-breaking totals both this year and in 2018 - and the first consecutive three-year growth sequence since the 1990s. EUV lithography tools can be expected to make up an increasing proportion of the mix, with throughput levels and tool availability now improving towards the benchmark requirements for volume chip production.
