Shipments of silicon for semiconductor manufacturing raise more than 23%

I copy part of a post from EDN:

Shipments of silicon for semiconductor manufacturing in 2010 will grow by 23.6% year-over-year, reaching 8.9 billion total square inches, according to iSuppli estimates.

Global silicon shipments in terms of square inches are bouncing back in 2010, after suffering like most segments did in the 2008/2009 economy.

That's according to a report from iSuppli Corp, which estimated shipments will rise to record levels in 2010.

Shipments of silicon for semiconductor manufacturing in 2010 will grow by 23.6% year-over-year, reaching 8.9 billion total square inches, up from 7.2 billion square inches in 2009, iSuppli forecast. Growth is expected to continue and iSuppli projected that by 2014 12.4 billion total square inches of silicon will be shipped.
