IC manufacturers maximise 300 and 200mm wafer capacity

IC manufacturers maximise 300 and 200mm wafer capacity
IC manufacturers are increasing efforts to maximise fabrication plants using 300 and 200mm diameter silicon substrates because the prospects of large 450mm wafers are going nowhere. The number of 300mm wafer production-class fabs in operation worldwide is expected to increase each year between now and 2021 to reach 123 compared to 98 in 2016, according to the forecast in IC Insights’ Global Wafer Capacity 2017-2021 report.

Rising inequality has led to concerns that top earners are getting a disproportionate share of the gains from global 'openness and interconnection'. This summer, the OECD Employment Outlook 2017 revealed that job polarisation has been 'driven by pervasive and skill-biased technological changes'.
