It turns out that the announcement is only half true. The update to the statistics report is no longer posted on the website http://www.sicas.info, but is now on http://www.sia-online.org/industry-statistics/semiconductor-capacity-utilization-sicas-reports/.
Hi Peter - looks like SICAS website announcement does appear on their website at the foillowing URL = http://www.sicas.info/whatisnew.html.
The web page says the following:
WHAT IS NEW?
The SICAS statistics report for Q4 of 2010, which is published on this website, is the last report to be published on this SICAS website.
This SICAS website will be shut down after the middle of March 2011.
Interesting. I didn't see that and i don't think it is mentioned on the website.
SIA made an announcement that SICAS stats for Q1 would be posted by end of June, but i am not sure where or how that will be done.
I have put an information request into SIA.
