Wafer Demand: Good to Grow in 2011

Phoenix, Arizona April 19, 2011 - The foundries are ramping 32nm/28nm production, but that's only one of the reasons wafer demand is forecast to grow at above average rates this year. MEMS and sensors will help to grow wafer demand at the ¡Ý1000nm technology nodes. Microcontroller units are expected to grow by just over 10%, driving up the need for more silicon. And, although DRAM units are expected to grow by only 4-5%, NAND flash units will continue to grow at double-digit rates. All these are top reasons why wafer demand will grow over 10% in 2011.
