Challenges & Opportunities During the Semiconductor Manufacturing Boom

Due to a global chip shortage, the semiconductor manufacturing market is experiencing an unprecedented boom. To meet the demand, semiconductor manufacturers across the globe are both expanding and upgrading their existing facilities and constructing new sites.
