How to Get Involved in SEMI Data Collection Programs

Your company can easily join SEMI confidential data collection programs. This will require a small time commitment on a monthly or quarterly basis, depending on the frequency of your program. Each program is based on direct input from over 80 percent of the industry, and most programs are global with regional breakdowns. This is a service that SEMI provides to its members. In exchange for providing data on a regular basis, participants receive a copy of the report. All reports generated by SEMI's data collection programs focus on "Ship-to" market region; SEMI does not track supplier market share.
