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.

Growing Emphasis on the Importance of Due Diligence Reporting Drives the Market for Virtual Data Rooms, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn – Virtual data rooms (VDR) as a new generation of online document storage and filing system is witnessing strong interest and adoption among enterprises. Defined as a virtual form of the traditional physical data rooms that serve as repositories of important and confidential company related data, VDRs replicate the same function over the Internet using computers. The tough and challenging economic climate which continues to remain the new normal in developed countries and the ensuing pressure on corporate bottom lines is driving significant interest in cost effective IT technologies and solutions. Cloud computing and cloud based technologies, over the last decade, have emerged to revolutionize the very structure of IT departments worldwide. A disruptive force in the making, virtual data room services represent the most efficient model of delivering file storage resources to companies. With almost all industries worldwide now being dependent on compute resources, virtual data rooms, which represent a cloud based resource, is forecast to witness strong growth. Adoption of VDRs will continue to benefit from the maturing cloud concept and the resulting increase in interoperability, data portability, and lower costs.

Disadvantages associated with traditional information storage and management strategies include risk of data loss and misplacement, high upfront capital costs in case of physical data rooms, time consuming filing process, lack of security, and limited efficiency benefits. All of these drawbacks are helping drive the migration to VDRs. Key benefits of VDR driving its adoption include automatic creation of backup of all uploaded files/data, superior security controls, efficient support for multiple users, easy and hassle free retrieval and viewing of files, cost effective storage of regulated information, compliance with regulatory norms, rapid anytime access to files, flexible pay per use billing, elasticity and ability to scale up datacenter resources as per requirement, among others. VDRs in addition also offer a superior alternate solution to generic file sharing (GFS) programs like Dropbox, and Google Drive, which although effective for consumer personal use, are often ill-suited for enterprise applications. Security glitches such as, violation of privacy norms like unauthorized sale or sharing of information with third parties, infrastructure limitations, limited reporting features, inability to track & trace user statistics and lack of strong backup options for files stored, remain key concerns with the use of GFS programs. Virtual data rooms in this regard offer a robust and secure platform for sensitive data storage and sharing.

Typically, use of VDR is dominated by corporate functions such as mergers & acquisitions (M&A), divestitures, liquidation, IPOs and bankruptcies. Future growth, however, will be led by increased adoption of VDR in facilitating newer corporate functions such as investor communications, fundraising, research & development, asset purchases, loan syndication, and supply chain secure document sharing, among others. While investment banks, manufacturing companies, and law firms represent dominant users of VDR, healthcare and pharmaceutical companies are emerging as a lucrative customer cluster, driven by increased drug development and licensing collaborations, patent filing activity and the growing need to protect IP property.

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research "Bone Densitometers Market(DEXA, QCT, pDEXA, SEXA, pQCT, RA and QUS)- Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019," the global bone densitometers market was valued at USD 777.9 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3% from 2013 to 2019, to reach an estimated value of USD 908.5million in 2019.

Browse the full report with complete TOC at http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/bone-densitometers-market.html

Bone densitometry is a non-invasive diagnostic technique which involves use of bone densitometers for quantitative measurement of bone mass or density. Over a past few decades, decrease in bone mass or density has been associated with the occurrence of fractures in future and thus bone density measurement has been considered as an indicator to predict fracture risk. Moreover, people with medications for corticosteroid treatment, cancer, eating disorders, amenorrhea and genetic disorders are also preferred for evaluation of bone mineral density.

Major improvements in diagnostic technology have been witnessed since last decade due to change in perception for osteoporotic disease, growing elderly population and high expenditure to society and healthcare agencies along with the adverse effects on patients across the globe. The advances in the technology are making it possible for early detection of disease before fracture occurs. With socio-economic development in many developing countries and rapid ageing of the population, osteoporosis has become one of the most prevalent and costly health problems in these regions. Growing ageing population combined with increased vitamin D deficient patients and rise in risk for osteoporosis in post-menopausal women contribute to the growth of this market particularly in emerging economies of Middle East, India, China and Japan. Moreover, technological advances in bone densitometerscoupled with increase in access and recognition of these technologies in emerging market, such as China, Brazil, Japan and India will serve as an opportunity for investors to invest in.

The global market for bone densitometers has been studied from the perspective of currently widely accepted technologies and the major end users. Technologies are further segmented, based on axial and peripheral bone density measurement. Axial bone densitometers include dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and quantitative computed tomography. Peripheral bone densitometers include single energy X-ray absorptiometry, peripheral dual energy X-ray absorptiometry, radiographic absorptiometry, quantitative ultrasound and peripheral computed tomography. The endusers for bone densitometers include clinics and hospitals.Hospitals remain the major hub in most of the countries across the globe for bone densitometry diagnostics and devices.

It is expected that the global market for axial bone densitometers will grow at a CAGR of over 3% from 2013 to 2019.In 2012, axial DEXA accounted for the largest share by revenue at USD 297.8 million of the total bone densitometers market. However, due to thedecrease in the reimbursement, the overall market revenue is expected to decline during the forecast period in the U.S and Europe.The market for axial QCTaccounted for the second largest share at USD 182.9million, in 2012. Moreover, it is expected that the global market for peripheral QCT bone densitometers will grow at a CAGR of over 4% from 2013 to 2019, owing to its high sensitivity, portability of devices, lesser scanning time, with better precision and accuracy, and also less radiation exposure.

Geographically, North America dominatedthe global market for bone densitometersin terms of revenue generation and is expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period. Theadoption of DEXA systems, growing elderly population and consequent rise in incidences of osteoporosis in the U.S., is expected to contribute to the leadership of the North American market. Europe was the second largest regional market for bone densitometersin 2012, owing to the increased demand for bone density measurement.

Furthermore, customers have the alternative of the SBC846A3 which created PCI-104 expansion interface. Having such smaller footprint/compact design, both the platforms can be applied widely for varied applications with high performance and extreme low power consumption.

“As a pre-configured and tested computing platform, developers are able to focus on their core capabilities in software development and product design without the burden of designing and prototyping their own platform” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Division. “Consequently, the SBC846A1 reduces product development costs and becomes a highly attractive solution.”

The SBC846A1 can also be placed in pre-configured embedded enclosures to serve as an all-in-one solution. These embedded MicroBox enclosures come with 43W, 60W, or 70W power supplies. The board has the right features to fit any market, but is specifically designed to fit into harsh environment applications where a rugged design is a must.

SBC846A1 and SBC846A3 are available now. For more information or pricing, please browse http://www.axiomtek.com or contact our territory sales representative or info@axiomtek.com.tw.

Fujitsu Joins-Up with TVonics to Bring First of Its Kind All-European Digital Terrestrial Set Top Box to Market

Frankfurt, Germany, and Pencoed, Wales, UK, (PRWEB) August 25, 2005

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) has been working closely with UK digital set top box (STB) manufacturer, TVonics Limited, who is commencing mass production of its stylish, digital terrestrial set top box for the UK and European markets. This unique, European designed STB uses key components that have been either designed or manufactured within Europe. The TVonics designed product, which delivers fast, responsive performance at an affordable price, will be on sale from the end of September 2005.

This new STB, manufactured in the UK by Sony for TVonics, is initially being rolled-out to serve the high-growth UK digital terrestrial market for Freeview services. Offering a distinctive styling and form factor, it offers end consumers a refreshing alternative to the traditional silver or grey rectangular boxes currently on sale.

Designed to minimise ecological impact through the use of lead-free components, a recyclable aluminium enclosure, and low power consumption, it will conform to the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) EU mandate for products sold from January 2006 onwards. It is expected to be in high demand by British consumers, eager to enjoy the popular range of digital television programmes available on Freeview.

TVonics selected FME’s ‘SmartMPEG’ MB86H25B decoder for use in the new STB, due to its low power consumption & system cost, which was made possible through its optimised silicon integration design techniques. The chip was designed at FME’s Multimedia Development Centre in Frankfurt, Germany, and requires just one SDRAM and a Flash memory, consuming less than 700mW in full operation.

This 3rd Generation SmartMPEG device has enjoyed excellent success around the world, with over 10 million unit deployments. The design win at TVonics spearheads its expansion into the buoyant European digital terrestrial television market.

FME’s SmartMPEG family allows many different applications to be executed - in this case an optimised DVB-T Adapter with interactivity - but it is also suited to automotive applications; Personal Video Recorder, Dual/Twin Receiver, Portable and semi-professional applications; as well as satellite receivers, when used in combination with Fujitsu's QPSK Silicon Tuner.

The two companies were able to combine their experience in order to reduce the STB product development time to just 6 months. This was partly due to the application software being based on the Cabot Aurora DVB Middleware reference port, carried out last year between FME & Cabot Communications.

Production of the circuit board, product assembly, test and packing is being carried out by Sony Manufacturing, Pencoed Technology Park, UK - a natural choice for TVonics which is based on-site within the Technium Digital@Sony, technology incubation centre, established by Sony and the Welsh Development Agency in 2004.

Paul Fellows, CEO of TVonics said, “The silicon chip technology and technical support provided by Fujitsu, together with the software technology of Cabot, has enabled TVonics to enter the market quickly with a product delivering superior performance at a very competitive price. This development has been an excellent example of how three European based design groups can work together to deliver class leading products to market quickly”.

He continued, “The excellent co-operation from Fujitsu has led to very close links being forged between the two companies resulting in the perfect design mix. The new box will be announced and featured on our Stand 215, Hall 5 at IBC 2005 in Amsterdam from 9th-13th September”.

Johannes Richter, Multimedia Business Unit Director at FME, added, “The experience and professionalism from TVonics perfectly matched our own when it came to the design of an elegant, unique product to bring to market in the UK and Europe. We are extremely happy to have been part of this design and look forward to a long relationship with TVonics”.

He added, “We were able to achieve this fastest turnaround time from design start to production start in just 6 months including Cabot’s Pan-European Aurora DVB middleware stack with MHEG-5 functionality, because of the skilled engineers at TVonics designing a right-first-time solution, and the availability of Middleware from Cabot”.

Darren Standing, Business Development Manager at Cabot Communications commented, “Since being selected by TVonics in February 2005 to support its development programme, we have worked closely with engineers at FME and TVonics to deliver for the first time, an Aurora DVB-T Middleware market deployment running on FME's SmartMPEG technology. TVonics has used the performance and flexibility of Aurora to rapidly integrate its own innovatively styled user interface, system software and device drivers to deliver a market leading DVB-T solution in record time”.

There are up to 80 million TVs and VCRs in the UK, and the British government wants all receiving equipment to be able to handle digital signals by 2012, when analogue broadcasting will be switched off. Throughout Europe, an estimated 600 million units will need to be converted or replaced with digitally-enabled equipment in the next 10 years.

Figures above are based on typical usage of 2.5 TVs or VCRs in all registered TV households.
