Global 2Q16 silicon wafer shipments rise, says SEMI

    Worldwide silicon wafer area shipments increased during the second quarter of 2016 when compared to first-quarter 2016 area shipments, according to the SEMI Silicon Manufacturers Group (SMG) in its quarterly analysis of the silicon wafer industry.

Total silicon wafer area shipments were 2.706 billion square inches during the second quarter of 2016, a 6.6% increase from the 2.538 billion square inches shipped during the previous quarter. On an annual basis, shipments were 0.1% higher than the 2.702 billion square inches shipped in the second quarter of 2015.

    "Silicon shipment growth continues to gain momentum resulting in a quarterly volume shipment high," said Volker Braetsch, chairman SEMI SMG and senior VP of Siltronic. "Although year-to-date shipments are effectively flat relative to the same period as last year."
