The webcast will present the results of KPMG’s latest Global Semiconductor Survey. The 10th edition of our annual study reflects the expectations of senior leaders from the world’s leading semiconductor companies about revenue trends, profitability, geographic growth, application markets, technology evolution, and other factors influencing the global semiconductor industry over the next three years.

The results of the Our bellwether Semiconductor Industry Business Confidence Index, and responses to most survey questions, continue to signal we remain in an extended period of cautious optimism, accompanied by a higher degree of uncertainty as compared to last year. Expectations for accelerated growth observed in the 2013 survey have largely been fulfilled, but consistently lower revenue guidance for the fourth quarter of 2014 emerged at the time we were conducting this survey. As a result, the strong year-over-year revenue growth experienced in 2013 was not sufficient to drive a meaningful increase in the 2014 confidence index, which reflects a cautiously optimistic outlook that indicates continued improved trends in most leading indicators – but also a high degree of uncertainty.
