World­wide semi­con­duc­tor rev­enue fore­cast to in­crease 12.3 per cent in 2017: Gart­ner

Electronics Bazaar - - Industry News -

World­wide semi­con­duc­tor rev­enue is fore­cast to to­tal US$ 386 bil­lion in 2017, an in­crease of 12.3 per cent from 2016, ac­cord­ing to Gart­ner Inc. Favourable mar­ket con­di­tions that gained mo­men­tum in the se­cond half of 2016, par­tic­u­larly for com­mod­ity mem­ory, have ac­cel­er­ated and im­proved the out­look for the mar­ket in 2017 and 2018. How­ever, the mem­ory mar­ket is fickle, and ad­di­tional ca­pac­ity in both DRAM and NAND Flash is ex­pected to re­sult in a cor­rec­tion in 2019.
