The Global Semiconductor Capital Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 3% over the
period 2012-2016.

One of the major drivers in this market is the increasing demand from smartphone
manufacturers. Smartphones provide the highest growth potential for the Global
Semiconductor Capital Equipment market since advanced semiconductor equipment are
increasingly being used in the manufacture of smartphones.

The Global Semiconductor Capital Equipment market is witnessing an increasing number
of mergers and acquisitions, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years.
Both existing vendors and new entrants prefer the acquisitive route to either enter the
market or broaden their portfolio of offerings. For instance, Applied Materials has
acquired Varian Semiconductor Equipment Associates Inc. in November 2012. This acquisition
will enhance the portfolio of Applied Materials with the addition of the latest ion
implantation technology.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the
cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry. The Semiconductor
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7zqswq/global ] industry goes through a severe
downturn after the products reach a mature phase of their life cycle. Added to this, the
industry is going through tough times due to the fluctuating economic conditions. This
cyclical nature is a major setback to the growth of the Global Semiconductor Capital
Equipment market.

The key vendors dominating this space include:

        - Applied Materials Inc.
        - ASML Holdings N.V.
        - Tokyo Electron Ltd.
        - Lam Research Corp.
