The semiconductor equipment market in Japan is forecast to grow both in 2014 and 2015.  Drivers for the increased investment are: memory devices, power semiconductors and “More than Moore” semiconductor technologies.  According to the SEMI World Fab Forecast, in 2014, Japan will spend more than $10 billion in 2014 on semiconductor equipment and materials.  The projection for 2015 is to more than double semiconductor equipment spending to $4.2 billion.

SEMICON Japan 2014 will bring Japan’s rebounding semiconductor equipment market into focus and the underlying technology and business drivers.  SEMICON Japan will enable attendees to explore key technologies and business models necessary to grow in the coming years. Highlights include:

  • East Hall: SEMICON Japan exhibitors display their products and offer seminars all day throughout the event.  The floor layout includes a dedicated “World of IOT” area (TechSPOT East), Front-end Process Zone, Back-end/Materials & Overall Process Zone, and more.
