The information for the fab reports and forecasts is compiled from various sources in the industry including publicly available information such as capital spending plans, fab plans, ramp schedules, and technology roadmaps.

Source data are verified across an extensive network of industry contacts. These data are used in modeling for each company and facility, incorporating various economic indicators and best educated estimates.

The report uses a bottom-up approach, tracking projects per cleanroom facility but uses also a top down analysis by company, region, and industry segment.

Content details include capital expenditure for construction and equipment, capacities, technologies used, product types, and wafer sizes.
