    Consistent Semiconductor Equipment Market Growth: Comments, Questions, & Answers for reasons the Fab Line Cost 1995-2010 increased?
    • The gap between the equipment forecast and the fab cost trend is growing.
    • There is a potential for the gap to turn into an emerging crisis with not enough equipment to fill demand.
    • Is it a correct statement that your optimistic view on the mid-term WFE outlook is NOT related to COVID-19 and its impact "Stay@home" but more fundamentally to the fact that 450mm did not happen and that chips become increasingly complex with more elements added into the equation?
