Most of these predictions end up falling apart. There is the black swam like the Japanese earthquake. The same time we see growth, IC Insights saw decline. So, it is all about wishy opinion. There is no hard science here.

Sufia, one needs to make a distinction that what Dr. Rhines is saying may hold true for memory & logic products and the foundries making them. It doesn't seem to apply in case of MEMS products of which a majority are IDM's. I am not convinced on TAM shrinking next year in the Semi market (excluding MEMS, of course!). MP Divakar

Wally doesnt say its bad. In fact, it is good in the long run, that's what he believes; that was his take on the semiconductor scenario next year

Wally is commenting on the general health of the semiconductor industry and is implying that higher capacities mean lower utilization until the more demand will fill that gap. But all that depends on the economic growth in the coming year which going by current trends is dull.

So, he is worried there will be an oversupply and that will lead to growing new markets. I don't get it. Is he saying its bad or good?

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.
