If i remember correctly then all of us were excited to see China's plan to spend $100B in semiconductor and $10B this year is really a positive news for all the tool vendors. I see asian countries moving into hardware business when US/Europe is finding it unsustainable.

$10B is not a lot of money in terms of modern wafer fabs. And China is spreading this $10B over a few companies across the country. I doubt it would make any difference.

China's chip investment

China's continued interest in foundries is clearly there. But unlike a few decades ago, China is definitely taking a much more holistic view in terms of getting its own semciondcutor industry up and running. Investment is NOT limited to foundries. It ranges from mergers and acquisitions of existing companies -- not just in China but also outside China.

See the story we posted last Sept.:

Can China Buy Its Way Into Global IC Industry?
