Semiconductor Executives Temper Growth Expectations 

KPMG’s Global Semiconductor Survey, of over 150 executives, now in its seventh year, identifies trends and issues influencing the global semiconductor market today, as well as the opinions of leading executives about industry growth over the next three years.

The survey’s bellwether Semiconductor Business Confidence Index indicates a shift toward negative sentiment about industry revenue growth. Although the index suggests more of a speed bump for the industry than a double-dip downturn, semiconductor companies are planning a number of defensive measures to improve profitability, including reducing the growth of R&D and capital spending.
