Semico Fab Database 2019 Summary Now Available

Semico's Fab Database report is a great resource for tracking changes among advanced as well as mature fabs.  You can also sort the data by region or by type of products.  Semico's report includes updates on fabs owned by foundries, memory manufacturers, IDMs, and research facilities.  The database itself includes detailed information about each fab, including operating status, location, process, products, wafer size, capacity, and more.  Semico updates it biannually with a summary of which changes each fab has made over the previous six months. 
Semico tracks over 1000 semiconductor fabs in this Fab Database, including those that are planned, under construction, installing new equipment, active, closing, or closed.  Over 300 individual companies or institutions are mentioned in the database. 
Some key changes in the fab marketplace discussed by this report include:

  • In April 2019, Cypress Semiconductor closed on a joint venture with SK Hynix to manufacture and sell Cypress' SLC NAND products.
  • Several newer applications are contributing to the drive for advanced-node capacity, including 5G, datacenter, autonomous driving, AI, and Big Data.
  • TSMC has several projects in the works. The company is equipping Fab 18 Phase 1 which is planned to begin 5nm production in 2020.
  • After four strong years of new fab construction, 2019 has only four new fabs beginning to be built this year.

This study includes a Word document as well as an Excel spreadsheet, "Semico Fab Database.xls", which encompasses the most current version of our fab database. This report provides a snapshot of a "living" document, as fab statuses and plans are announced all the time. Semico tracks these changes on an ongoing basis and issues an updated report biannually. Companies are only included in this writeup if they have made announcements regarding their fabs.
