TechInsights' Semiconductor Analytics Report
Semiconductor sales growth slipped last week, down 4% W/W. The IC weather cooled 7˚F. Zooming in on semiconductor growth this week, the 13-wk MA is slowing across all segments with the predicted cooling in chip demand from capacity expansion and macro issues.
TechInsights’ IC Supply/Demand indices loosened for the week to Balanced. Foundry went to Loose, More Moore to Saturated, while More than Moore and OSAT moved to Balanced. IDM and Analog & Power remained Balanced, NAND stayed Tight, and Auto ICs are still in Shortage.
Chip demand – cooled by inflation and monetary tightening – and capacity expansion are working to ease the shortage.
Electronics’ Retail Prices are turning down.
