SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 11 -- Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) and the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) announced they will jointly conduct a comprehensive study on nanotechnology applications in the electronics industry. They said the study will provide definition of the rapidly-emerging global nanoelectronic markets and offer a global perspective of requirements and opportunities for equipment and materials suppliers.
"Global Nanoelectronics Markets and Opportunities" will be available in the third quarter of 2005. The report will be based on interviews with industry executives in China, Europe, Japan, Korea, North America, Taiwan and other regions.
"Nanosciences are a new frontier of technologic pursuit," said SEMI President and CEO Stanley Myers. "They have numerous potential market applications in the electronics industries and represent great opportunities for those that provide the enabling materials, processes and systems to exploit them.
SIA President George Scalise said, "The nanoelectronics era will revolutionize the semiconductor industry as we utilize new materials, new device structures and new assembly methods to extend Moore's Law. This study will provide quantified insight and in-depth analysis to help companies understand the new landscape and to focus their business and investment strategies on applications with the greatest opportunities for commercialization."
The report will identify the current and planned nanotechnology activities of semiconductor, display, storage, optoelectronic, sensor and MEMS companies. Additionally, equipment and materials process technologies, applications, requirements and opportunities will be defined.
Nanotechnology equipment and materials market size will be provided by business segment and 5-, 10- and 15-year market forecasts will be presented based on various scenarios of new technology penetration.
The single-user cost of the study ordered prior to August 31, 2005, will be $4000 for SEMI and SIA members and $5000 for nonmembers. After August 31, the cost will be $5000 for SEMI and SIA members and $6500 for nonmembers. Multiuser license may be purchased for $12,500 for SEMI and SIA members and $15,000 for nonmembers.
