Kuang-Han Ke, Sr. Technology Analyst of TECHCET, recently presented on trends in the Quartzware Equipment Component market during the monthly Critical Materials Council (CMC) private teleconference. In 2018 Base Materials grew 17% globally, and the Fabricated Parts market increased by 12% for the year. China was the primary growth driver for both of these segments. Sales in Q4 of 2018 slowed due to a slowing in the memory market. Revenue growth for fabricated parts is tracking overall new equipment sales this year, thus showing a decline in revenues for 2019.
There are indications that 2H2019 may improve with regard to capital equipment expenditures (CapEx). TECHCET continually tracks the quartz market and updates our CMC customers routinely.
