This article reports that the year 2006 looks good for the chip industry with all the vital signs pointing to robust demand and little chance of excess capacity. Future Horizons Inc. said this imbalance has translated into shortages of chipsets at Intel Corp., because of a shortage of eight inch capacity, a shortage of power discretes at International Rectifier and an "under-estimation" of Q4 demand at Texas Instruments Inc. Malcolm Penn, CEO of Future Horizons, predicts a 20 per cent dollar growth for the industry this year.
