What key metrics will your business track going forward?
most materials suppliers' businesses have tracked growth in million square
inches (MSI) of silicon shipped or processed. However, Linx analysis has recently identified a divergence
of wafer starts (both 200 and 300mm) with the growth in MSI, as shown below:
This is being caused
by the adoption of 300mm technology as well as the shuttering of 200mm
capacity, especially in the memory segment. Going forward, this trend can have significant impact on a
materials suppliers as fewer wafers are processed, especially if materials
pricing is not linear (with area) between 200 and 300mm applications.
