Client Comments

As usual Malcolm's insights from all three interviews are very interesting and I would say bang on the button.  I can see the industry gradually waking up to new shortages in all sorts of unexpected areas.

Certainly silicon wafers, especially 300mm will be extremely tight for quite a while.
