I agree. People do not want to talk the economy down. Part of the problem is psychological (as well as hard economics). Nobody knows for sure how things will shape up, but the longer things carry on without major troubles, the better. The good news is that there is real investment in new fabs and new semiconductor products. We need more customer spending.

I think they are saying they "hope the semiconductor industry will grow". The global economy is still burdened by many factors and even the best economists are very cautious. I suspect we are seeing the same "cautiously hoping" opinions from the semi industry. Better to seem positive even if there is little proof to support it.

I love to hear more positive sign. From what I've seen in Asia, it is still good and the business of my company (a semiconductor company) is still good. So, I tend to trust this expectation.

29% predicted a job force growth of greater than 5%. So that means 71% did not. What did the 71% predict? Less than 5%? Less than 0%? It would be nice to have more details on this study.

How can we truly know the statement to take in these predictions. Last few months, we were seeing negatives for next year. Good enough, it is better to replace negatives with positive outlooks.

Real objective sources for semi market prediction. What would one expect from semi executives? Here's what they really think: "we haven't a clue what will happen next year. The whole semi business is hanging by a thread and please don't let it collapse on my watch."

Hopefully next year the growth will be more than 'moderate' level as predicted. The industry can be driven forward with more and more innovative products and consumer demands.
