I think the conventional wisdom is that "normal" growth in global GDP of a few percent should produce semiconductor market growth of between 5 and 10 percent. So it would seem that Bruce Diesen is not predicting a boost but a return to normal. Perhaps he thinks the U.S. and European debt crises will be less stultifying by then. I dont think they will have gone away, but perhaps the global economy will be more used to them.

I think the market is in consolidation phase right now, but its heartening to know that market will show growth of 7% in 2013. So where will this major boost come from ?
