Could also be 28 nm has more design rule restrictions and fewer fabless customers. Most fabless still like to play the mature nodes like 0.18 um.

It's a forecast, it could be wrong. Though, beyond 0.18 or 0.13, the number of available foundries drops a lot.

I think the reason is high equipment reuse-ability between 90nm and 65nm that allowed fast migration of capacity. Did not exist between 130nm & 90nm or 65nm & 45nm.
