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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
