An Overview of the Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market (July 2015)

Japan hailed the fifth-largest semiconductor manufacturing equipment market in the world in 2014, capturing an 11 percent share. Its domestic market has grown modestly in the past several years, and that trend is expected to continue into 2016. In particular, a domestic shift toward smart cars and robotics will help maintain demand. Opportunities for U.S. enterprises could grow if the World Trade Organization (WTO) passes an expansion of IT items excluded from tariff schedules under the Information Technology Agreement (ITA) of 1997.
