SEMI and SIA Announce Nanoelectronics Market Study

Jan 10, 2005, 00:00 ET from SEMI from ,Semiconductor Industry Association

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SEMI and the Semiconductor
 Industry Association (SIA) today announce their agreement to jointly conduct a
 comprehensive study on nanotechnology applications in the electronics
 industry.  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 Rest-of-
 World regions.
     "Nanosciences are a new frontier of technologic pursuit. 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," said SEMI President and CEO Stanley
 Myers.  "We are pleased to partner with the SIA and to leverage our combined
 research capabilities and industry relationships in order to provide an
 authoritative resource on this quickly developing field."
     "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," said SIA President George Scalise.  "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
 $4,000 for SEMI and SIA members and $5,000 for non-members.  After August 31,
 the cost will be $5,000 for SEMI and SIA members and $6,500 for non-members.
 Multi-user license may be purchased for $12,500 for SEMI and SIA members and
 $15,000 for non-members.
