The article reports that Advanced Forecasting expects the end of the semiconductor boom bust cycles in 2006 to generate unrestrained fear among industry players. A similar characteristic to both 1995 and 2006 is that each follows a sequence of strong growth years. Extrapolations are becoming the forecasting tool of choice. Moshe Handelsman, president of Advanced Forecasting, considers the integrated circuit industry as a maturing sector.
