Quarter of the first quarter decline in the global area of silicon wafer supplier to record low of nine

Equipment and Materials International Semiconductor Industry Association released data show that the first quarter of 2009, the global area of silicon wafer supply fell by 34.2% over the previous quarter, representing a decrease of 56.6% over the previous year, to 606,000 m2, the largest decline since 2000 .

Investment Advisor in the energy sector, Jiang Qian, chief researcher believes that the downstream industries as the semiconductor silicon wafer industry, the performance of the global downturn in the semiconductor industry is in the first quarter decline in the global area of silicon wafer supplier the main reason for creating a new low in nine years.
