SEMI: Memory fab equipment growth to continue into 2022

Year to date semiconductor equipment billings and device sales (both for May) are both up versus the same time in 2020, according to SEMI. In particular, equipment billings are up about 54% in 2021 versus 2020.

Semi says that 5G mobile phone penetration continues to drive demand for both mobile DRAM and NAND.  The group also said that cloud/server me mory demand is pointed to improve in the coming quarters from US and China hyperscale customers.  

Overall DRAM demand strength will continue into 2022 and average sale prices (ASPs) are expected to increase by high single digit percentages in the 2nd half of 2021.  NAND pricing recovery trails DRAM and ASPs will remain stable for the rest of 2021.

Semi fab equipment forecasts show significant increases in logic equipment spending, to meet expanded embedded equipment demand.  DRAM and NAND equipment spending will also experience significant growth
