Semiconductor Machinery Manufacturing in the US Industry Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Semiconductor machinery manufacturing encompasses the necessary equipment for semiconductor production, including wafer-processing, assembly and packaging. According to IBISWorld Industry Analyst Darryle Ulama, “The industry is characteristically volatile; demand depends on conditions in downstream semiconductor manufacturing, which undergoes rapid technological change and shifts in the global supply chain.” Industry performance also relies on downstream demand for electronic products, such as TVs, computers and cell phones. Although revenue is expected to expand slowly at an annualized rate of 1.4% to $ 11.4 billion in the five years to 2013, this figure masks wide fluctuations in growth rates over the period.

The recession dampened overall demand for electronic goods and semiconductor production, leading to a decrease in capital investment for semiconductor machinery purchases. Industry revenue contracted 32.9% in 2008, followed by a 41.2% decrease in 2009. Downstream demand for products that use semiconductors were weak during this period, as consumers cut back on discretionary spending. However, indications of a recovery emerged in 2010, bolstered by growth in smartphone technology, which led to a solid 62.4% growth in that year. The industry has since faced declines as semiconductor manufacturers move operations abroad to take advantage of more competitive labor costs and booming tech markets in Asia. In 2013, industry revenue is expected to decline 3.5%.

In the next five years, semiconductor machinery manufacturers will continue to be impacted by trends in its downstream markets. Industry revenue is expected to grow within the time period. Two competing trends will impact the industry. First, semiconductor manufacturing, the industry's largest market, will continue to move overseas to anticipate the significant market potential for electronics in Asia. Second, technological development in semiconductor production, such as the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography, will drive growth domestically. “China, Taiwan and Korea are among the industry's top export destinations, with consumption levels of electronics in these countries expected to rise rapidly over the next five years,” says Ulama. Industry exports are expected to increase in the five years to 2018. Concurrently, innovations in semiconductor technology for smartphones, tablets and cloud computing will push demand for more advanced machinery and encourage capital investment.

A medium level of market share concentration characterizes the Semiconductor Machinery Manufacturing industry. IBISWorld estimates that the top industry players are Applied Materials Inc. and ASML Holding NV. Many firms exited the industry in the five years to 2013, contributing to an expanding concentration of participating companies. During the five years to 2013, the number of industry enterprises declined at an average annual rate of 1.5% to 185. Further declines are expected over the next five years as major companies acquire smaller competitors and other firms move operations abroad.

TeselaGen and Transcriptic to Partner on Biological Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing Integration

San Francisco and Menlo Park, California (PRWEB) November 15, 2013

TeselaGen ( and Transcriptic ( have announced a strategic partnership to advance the integration of computer-aided design with computer-aided manufacturing for biology. The two companies will work together to build a seamless experience for scientists to manage, design, assemble, and test biomolecules in an easy and cost-effective way. Initially, the companies will focus on automated assembly of complex DNA and protein expression libraries of importance to their customers. This will allow scientists to engineer cells to more efficiently carry out desirable operations, such as producing medications and chemicals.

TeselaGen will offer its state of the art computer aided design and manufacturing platform for rapid prototyping of biomolecules. User requests are turned into cost-optimized protocols automatically, which can then be delivered to vendors who can fulfill those requests. Transcriptic will open its new groundbreaking API for laboratory services to TeselaGen so that automatically generated protocols can be transmitted directly to Transcriptic for execution.

The integration of TeselaGen’s cloud based BioCAD platform with Transcriptic’s BioCAM platform will offer clients a comprehensive design, build and test experience, with data flowing freely between the two platforms so that both the design and manufacturing sides of the process can learn from test data and improve processes and designs. For example, data from Transcriptic’s QC assays can feed back to TeselaGen’s design tools where the request was generated and where the data is most useful and relevant to customers.

“Transcriptic’s vision of creating an API for the lab dovetails perfectly with what are trying to accomplish at TeselaGen. We are very focused on improving our customers experience with getting molecules built and tested quickly,” said Michael Fero, CEO, TeselaGen. “Among our clients are many small startups and individual researchers who are already benefiting from being able to use our tools instead of having to build expensive in-house capabilities. Now, we find that much bigger customers are also looking to exploit a more cloud-based model for biomolecule R&D. We believe that in the future we will see more customers moving not only their IT infrastructure to the cloud, but also execution of complex R&D workflows as well. The current practice of using form-based input disconnected from design tools is archaic. We feel our users should have the same sort of seamless design/build/test experience as our colleagues in the electronic design industry. Transcriptic’s vision of creating an efficient service model for common laboratory processes fits well with our vision of being able to do entire experiments in the cloud… with complex requests going out, and comprehensive results coming back, as quickly as physical possible with minimum human intervention.”

“TeselaGen’s experience and capabilities in automated biomolecule design make them a good partner for building on the advanced execution platform that we’ve built,“ said Max Hodak, CEO, Transcriptic. “The markets TeselaGen serves are same ones that we do. The problems we solve are complementary, and by partnering with TeselaGen we can provide our customers with a more complete design to delivery experience. One of our imperatives this year is to find good strategic partners that can complement our business model and begin feeding our request fulfillment pipeline. TeselaGen is a great partner because they understand what we are trying to accomplish for our customers and can work closely with us to give us the information we need in a seamless fashion.”

Disc Makers Breaks CD & DVD Manufacturing Records: The CDs Not Dead Yet

PENNSAUKEN, NJ (PRWEB) November 08, 2012

Disc Makers, the nations leading independent CD and DVD manufacturer, has reported some interesting news in this era of digital downloads and music streaming. The company announced today that in October it broke two of its all-time disc replication records, proving thatas much as everphysical media is a crucial part of any musicians product offerings and the CD is not yet dead. In October 2012, Disc Makers replicated 4,380,296 CDs, an increase of over 600,000 units from October, 2011. This figure outpaces Disc Makers prior all-time monthly CD & DVD replication record of 4,013,000 CDs, which had held since 2008.

The music industry has always sustained two simultaneous formats, says Disc Makers CEO Tony van Veen. Whether it was vinyl and cassettes, or cassettes and CDs, or now CDs and downloads/streams, these numbers show the continued demand for multiple formats simultaneously. As the primary product offering at live shows, as an additional driver of online sales, and as a requirement for any serious product release PR campaign, having CDs is a vital part of every musicians marketing mix.

The new record-breaking disc replication numbers not only indicate that independent artists may be feeling the positive effects of economic recovery, but also that the music industry has settled into a more comfortable balance between the demand for physical media and growing digital music technologies. A few years ago, during the height of the economic crisis, many music business pundits were hyping digital-only releases, says van Veen. But now that much of the dust has settled, independent artists know theyre leaving money on the table if they dont make their music available in both physical and digital form.

In addition to breaking its previous CD manufacturing record, Disc Makers also set a new all-time record for DVD production at 1,113,508 units, suggesting similar trends for businesses which create video media as part of their marketing or product offerings. Were really thrilled by these CD & DVD replication numbers, says van Veen, and expect to see strong demand continue for the foreseeable future.

Manufacturing Sector Begins 2013 on Strong Note, Confirms

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) January 04, 2013

The Institute for Supply Management announced Wednesday that Decembers manufacturing index and employment index indicate growth in the industry. Hiring data on confirms employment gains in manufacturing, especially in management.

The Institute for Supply Management released its monthly Report on Business, where its manufacturing index rose to 50.7 in the month of December. The Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) measures acquisition of goods and services in manufacturing and is closely watched as a signal of economic activity. With 50 as the dividing line between market expansion and contraction, any reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector and any reading below 50 indicates contraction. The 1.2 point increase over the previous month marks the third time in seven months that the beleaguered sector has seen growth. The December PMI reading came as particularly welcome news after Novembers reading of 49.5 marked the lowest reading since July 2009.

Other positive signs of growth included the December Employment Index, which rose to 52.7 percent, with an increase of 4.3 percentage points. Aside from one month of contraction, the ISM reported that employment has grown steadily since September 2009. Of the eighteen manufacturing sectors, nine reported growth in employment, in the following order: Petroleum & Coal Products; Wood Products; Printing & Related Support Activities, Paper Products; Food, Beverage & Tobacco Products; Furniture & Related Products; Chemical Products; Computer & Electronic Products; and Electrical Equipment, Appliances, & Components.

Confirming ISM data, job site also reported employment gains in manufacturing. As of January 3, listed 7,522 manufacturing jobs, up from the previous month. Hiring for manufacturing positions was strongest in California and Texas, where 9 percent and 6 percent of the jobs were located. Nearly 10 percent of the jobs were for managerial-level positions, including production supervisors, plant managers, maintenance supervisors, and operations managers. In hard economic times, companies often cut costs by laying off those who make the highest income, typically those at the senior levels. As manufacturing activity continues to pick up, so will hiring in management and at all levels. Continued growth in manufacturing employment is projected for this month as employers who postponed hiring due to uncertainty over the fiscal cliff begin hiring in earnest now that it has been averted: the U.S. House of Representatives passed its budget bill on Tuesday.

Were seeing modest momentum going into the start of the new year, said Harrison Barnes, CEO of Housing is rebounding overall and the economy is picking up, so manufacturing gains in employment are a direct result of that.

Industry representatives surveyed in the report had a mixed outlook for 2013, with some respondents noting that business had begun stabilizing and others expressing caution, especially in light of uncertainty over how future government regulation might affect business. In the last six months of 2012, the PMI has fluctuated evenly between expansion and contraction, with three months indicating expansion and three months indicating contraction.

Uni-Pixel Displays, Inc. Joins the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing

The Woodlands, TX (Vocus) July 9, 2009

Uni-Pixel, Inc. (OTCBB: UNXL), the developer of a color display technology called Time Multiplexed Optical Shutter ("TMOS"), today announced that it has joined the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM) at Binghamton University, State University of New York. Supporting the CAMM's mission to demonstrate the feasibility of Roll-to-Roll (R2R) flexible electronics manufacturing, UniPixel will leverage its recent grant from the FlexTech Alliance to further advance its R2R Conductor Patterning Capabilities that it has developed for its Opcuity Active Layer Films. The company believes that its advances in inkjet patterning of conductors on thin films can become the basis for developing printed flexible circuits for solar, biomedical, micro-fluidic systems and other markets.

Leading the project for UniPixel will be Dr. Ram Ramakrishnan who has been the key scientist behind the advances in UniPixel's conductor patterning development. During the course of development of the unique polymer films used in the company's TMOS displays, UniPixel has pioneered a method to use an inkjet printing system to pattern conductors on films at significantly thinner trace widths than previously achieved. This discovery provides the potential to enhance roll-to-roll printed electronics manufacturing by dramatically improving flexible printed circuitry, while at the same time reducing the cost of production. Dr. Ramakrishnan has led the efforts that have developed methods that use surface structure and surface chemistry to achieve sub-5 micron trace widths on the surface of flexible substrates. Currently this process is conducted in a batch environment at UniPixel where the methods and results have been well refined.

"Joining the CAMM is an important next step for UniPixel as we continue to develop our conductor patterning capabilities for our Opcuity film technology and the industry," noted Reed Killion, President and CEO of UniPixel."We believe our partnership with the CAMM will be instrumental in UniPixel's efforts to advance our conductor patterning capabilities to a high volume manufacturing process for our Opcuity film technology and the industry. Our company looks forward to our development work in this area being accelerated through the industry support and exposure that our partnership at the CAMM will bring. The tremendous team and resources available at the CAMM will be a huge support to the great work our team is doing," Killion added.

CAMM's Director and Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Binghamton University, Bahgat Sammakia, noted, "We are pleased to have UniPixel join the CAMM partnership. UniPixel's expertise in display and printed electronics provides a perfect fit with our strategic research plans. The work they have done on their unique flat panel display architecture will complement the CAMM's toolset and provide new opportunities for our members to develop new flexible electronic technologies."

While UniPixel has been engaged with the CAMM for some time, it ceremoniously signed its partnership contract with the CAMM during a recent meeting held at Binghamton on June 16. As a contribution to the CAMM's capabilities to support UniPixel's project, a specific inkjet system platform will be acquired and installed at the CAMM. This printer will provide UniPixel with the capability to support the transition of its processes and techniques.

"UniPixel's ability to advance flexible electronics and display systems can help our soldiers stay on the cutting edge of technology as they work to protect this country" said Representative Kevin Brady of Texas. "I'm also looking forward to the economic development prospects of this project. It is exciting to have such cutting edge research conducted in this area and I want to congratulate UniPixel on winning the competitively bid grant from the FlexTech Alliance."
