After falling 16.1% in 2012, chip equipment sales will drop 5.5% in 2013 before rising 19.1% in 2014 and 11.5% in 2015, predicts Gartner. The firm once expected sales to fall 9.7% in 2013, but that was before Intel set a lofty 2013 capex budget (later pared back some), and TSMC hiked its budget due to strong mobile chip demand. The forecast comes as #2 foundry Globalfoundries says it's expanding capacity at its Singapore and New York fabs to meet handle rising mobile chip sales. Major chip equipment makers: AMAT, KLAC, LRCX, ASML, CYMI, UTEK, RTEC.
