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-
"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.
