I suppose this market is a high tech industry that labor cost is not a major concern but having a pool of talents is the key to success. I wonder if there are enough talents in this field in China. How can they make the product cheaper beside lowering their profit margin expectation?

Himanshu_Gupta, Sorry. I don't have a forecast or size of the etch market. Anybody got those numbers? Hm, AMEC's main focus is the IC market. AMEC claims they are cheaper.

Is AMEC also doing work for Chinese Space and Miilitary industry? Is that their main focus? Also, what is cost advantage of AMEC fab tools vs Applied and Hitachi?

AMEC is doing very good progress in etch market, but it is quite surprising that etch market is also having tough competition.
