New Tripoli, PA, February 01, 2024 –(PR.com)– A significant slowdown in semiconductor equipment sales over the past two years will continue to slow in the first half of 2024, according to the report entitled “Global Semiconductor Equipment: Markets, Market Shares and Market Forecasts.” recently published by The Information Network, a New Tripoli, PA-based market research company.

“In 2023, semiconductor equipment revenues decreased 10% as a result of a combination of several factors, including ChatGPT and AI, silicon carbide on strong EV demand, high bandwidth memory (‘HBM’),” reported Dr. Robert Castellano, President of The Information Network. “Importantly, we saw hoarding of foreign semiconductor equipment by Chinese semiconductor manufacturers in areas outside of export restrictions to China by the U.S. and other countries.”
