SAN JOSE, CA – The worldwide IC packaging market reached $30.5 billion in 2007, reports Electronic Trend Publications. Some 151 billion ICs were produced during the year.
 
Modest growth should continue in 2008 and 2009, before accelerating in 2010, the firm says.
 
ETP found contract-packaging companies assembled nearly 49 billion ICs last year, or one-third of all components – for a value of $12.1 billion. The firm estimates the worldwide semiconductor output will grow to 261 billion ICs in 2012, a value of $47 billion.
