The article reports that the semiconductor industry will suffer a downward turning point around mid-2007, according to Advanced Forecasting. The depth of the decline will depend on the level of over-heating--terms of double-bookings and exaggerated revenues--that precedes the forecasted decline. Moshe Handelsman, president of Advanced Forecasting, said that the 2007 downturn is likely to have a much stronger impact on the industry than the slowdown in the second half of 2004.
