Thomas Lee, CMO of SurplusGLOBAL, to deliver talk on “Trends in the secondary semiconductor equipment market” at Semicon Russia.


SurplusGLOBAL, Inc., the leader in the secondary semiconductor equipment market, will participate in Semicon Russia 2013. SurplusGLOBAL's CMO, Thomas Lee, will deliver a presentation during the semiconductor market session.

Thomas Lee, CMO of SurplusGLOBAL, has participated in Semicon Russia for the past two years and states, “We are more optimistic about the growth of Russia Semiconductor Equipment Market in the years to come. Russian Government has driven Semiconductor Industry. Some of Russian companies such as Crocus have a world class technologies based on Russian’s strong background of basic science. The importance of Russian markets has been embraced by SurplusGLOBAL, as we have both supplied and procured secondary equipment to satisfy this Russian demand. To date, this demand has been driven by both 200mm FAB front and backend tools. We project starting growth of 300mm FABs in Russia such as Mikron and Crocus. Russian Fabs still have difficulties in insufficient supports from equipment suppliers. OEMs has mainly supplied equipment to Russian market. Recently some third parties from Europe and Asia started to supply secondary semiconductor equipment to Russian market. SurplusGLOBAL has continuous global growth plans with Russia adding to our Global portfolio.”

Today the Semiconductor market is divided. Firstly, there have been advancements in wafer size and a focus on next generation product, and second, there is a focus on cost reduction in mature technologies which is leading to an increased demand of secondary equipment in the LED, PV (photovoltaic) and MEMS manufacturing markets. There are increasing demands of secondary equipment in mature technology including 8” silicon wafers, LED and MEMS.

The secondary semiconductor equipment addresses both environmental and cost concerns within the industry. The secondary equipment market size has experienced continuous growth over the past three years. In 2012 the market size was estimated to be around US$3 billion, with 200mm wafer capturing 90% of this market. In 2013, demand of 300mm wafer equipment is expected to capture an increased share of the demand.

With growth in demand, distribution and services are becoming more critical every year. The number of Fab facilities in the United States and Europe continue to experience decline, while in Asia there has been continued investment in the China, Taiwan and South Korean markets. The Asian market accounts for approximately 80% of the semiconductor equipment market. The Asian secondary equipment market has and continues to experience continued growth and global, and financially stable traders such as SurplusGLOBAL are well positioned to lead the supply of this equipment.

Since its foundation in 2000, SurplusGLOBAL, Inc. has advanced to become a leading global Secondary Semiconductor Equipment trader with a proven track record and unsurpassed values, honesty and integrity.
