ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS announces the availability of a new report entitled “Asian Semiconductor Equipment Suppliers: Markets, Market Shares, Market Forecasts”. According to this report, semiconductor equipment suppliers headquartered in Asia will drop from 36.6% of the global wafer front end (WFE) market in 2014. Revenues generated in U.S. Dollar terms were $10.6 billion out of a global market of $29.2 Billion.
Listed below are the top 10 Asian semiconductor suppliers and their revenue.

“Share of revenues will drop to 33.4% in 2015, noted Dr. Robert Castellano, president of The Information Network, primarily due to the strong U.S. dollar, which has appreciated nearly 15% from 2014 levels.”
The report notes, for example, that Japan’s Tokyo Electron exhibited revenue growth of 16.3% in Yen for the first three quarters of CY 2015. However, when converted to US Dollars, the universally accepted currency historically used for market share data in the semiconductor industry, revenues show a revenue growth of just 1.2%.
“The strong US Dollar not only impacts the Japanese suppliers, but other Asian suppliers and even European suppliers,” added Dr. Castellano.
