worst year ever, says Dataquest - worst year ever, says Dataquest

The ramifications of the sharp semiconductor downturn in 2001 will be felt throughout 2002, warned Dataquest Inc. today, while releasing its preliminary ranking of chip suppliers for the worst year ever in industry history. The San Jose-based market research firm also predicted that 2002 will bring further consolidation in the struggling chip industry. The consolidation in the depressed memory business is already underway with Micron Technology Inc. announcing on Tuesday that it will acquire a U.S. DRAM plant from Toshiba Corp., which plans to exit the commodity dynamic RAM business (see Dec.18 story). When 2001 is finished, semiconductor sales are expected to drop 33% to $152 billion from a record high $227 billion in 2000, said Dataquest. All of the top 10 semiconductor vendors experienced revenue declines ranging from 19-to-49% (see table below). The preliminary ranking differs from other list issued by analysts recently partly because DRAM sales from NEC Corp. and Hitachi Ltd. have been placed under the Elpida Memory Inc. joint venture, said Dataquest.
