Semiconductor buffer after earthquake

Semiconductor inventory oversupply has provided a buffer for increased demand following the Japan Disaster, according to the quarterly semiconductor inventory market tracker from iSuppli.

The report found an oversupply in the market, after inventory has been building up over the past five consecutive quarters.

iSuppli reckons that this oversupply will be absorbed by increased demand, following disruption to the supply chain caused by the Japanese earthquake last month.

The tracker reports on inventory levels at some 100 companies across ten market segments in the semiconductor supply chain.
