Europe Leaders to Examine EC’s Ambitious Goal — 20% Market Share of Global Semiconductor Manufacturing by 2020

ISS Europe to explore trends, market opportunities, critical technologies and associated risks to help drafting strategic business plans, in light of the EC initiative

BERLIN, Germany — January 27, 2014 — At the SEMI Industry Strategy Symposium Europe (ISS Europe 2014) on February 23-25 in Salzburg, semiconductor industry executives will examine the conditions required to achieve the EU’s 10/100/20 strategy — 20 percent market share of global semiconductor manufacturing by 2020.  Presenters from ASML, ASMI, Deutsche Bank, GlobalFoundries, Infineon, Nomura Research, NXP, STM, and more will lead a discussion of the strategic measures needed to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and sustainability and determine the boundary conditions to achieve the EC’s ambitious goal.

The recently published market analysis by IC Insights forecasts capital spending of US$ 62 billion up 7 percent year-over-year and materials increasing 5 percent to reach US$ 53 billion in 2014. For Europe, SEMI forecasts that total spending on semiconductor equipment and materials will exceed $5 billion for the year.

Change and challenges in the semiconductor and related industries will continue in 2014.  In Europe, consolidation of our industry could continue while technological investment in EUV, the 450mm transition, and 3D-TSV are expected to continue, supported by the KET (Key Enabling Technologies) and the EU10/100/20 initiative pushed forward by both the EU and national governments.  

Prominent industry experts and forecasters at ISS Europe will share their views on what advancements and conditions are necessary to help Europe reach this goal of 20 percent share of worldwide semiconductor manufacturing. Major focus will be on macro-economics, mega-trends, global and regional market development, 450mm transition, and EUV status.

The impressive speaker line-up of the ISS Europe also includes the following two keynote speakers:

  • Richard Koo, Chief Economist, Nomura Research, on “Understanding Eurozone Crisis with Lessons from Japan”
  • Aart de Geus, Chairman and co-Chief Executive Officer, Synopsys, on “Bridging the Digital Agenda”

The market data and technical discussions will be complemented by a panel discussion “Will Europe Win with the EU10/100/20 Strategy?” with a diverse group of manufacturers and stakeholders, focusing on the issues for successful device manufacturing in Europe. The panel discussion will include representatives from the European Commission, ASM, AENEAS, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Infineon, and STMicroelectronics. The panel will be moderated by Malcolm Penn, CEO of Future Horizons.

The SEMI ISS Europe has presented the industry's most influential annual planning data for Europe for nearly three decades. It offers a unique opportunity to interact with high-level representatives from the entire semiconductor supply chain and to network with customers, partners and peers.
