LONDON Future Horizons, the European semiconductor markets analyst is to hold its 2005 Semiconductor Industry Forecast Seminar (IFS2005) on 25 January 2005 in London.
It will present its latest forecasts and outlook for both the European and worldwide semiconductor industry and believes that there are currently two clear scenarios for the semiconductor industry in 2005 with a doom and gloom short-lived recovery, collapsing in 2005 the most favoured consensus by most of the other commentators.
Malcolm Penn, CEO Future Horizons, said, “We strongly disagree with favoured opinion, and believe 2005 will see continued growth through into 2006. The current uncertainty is partially a backlash from the severity of the past recession, coupled with underlying economic concerns.”
IFS 2005 will cover market fundamentals, the 2005 industry outlook, industry application drivers, supply & demand and economic outlook.
“The good times are clearly now back on the agenda. Yet, even before the recovery has slowed, all eyes are focused on just how long it will last, whether there is enough investment, and whether the current market drivers are broad and strong enough to maintain the growth momentum through 2005 and beyond,” said Penn.
IFS 2005 will be held at the Kensington Close Hotel in Knightsbridge, London visit the Future Horizons web site for more information.
