A significant number of (nine) new 300mm fabs were announced in the quarter with many on short tool install schedules. The new fabs were actually spread across a wide region with a mix of logic, memory and foundry, which does not occur very often. The quarter was also marked by the announcement of one new 300mm fab in Europe, which will tool install in the same year (2007), as last quarter’s fab announcement from Intel, something that Europe has not experienced before. This report tracks the increased activity and analyses the new trends taking place as well as tackling growing concerns of looming overcapacity.
