Gartner now sees chip equipment sales falling 17.4% in 2012 and 9.7% in 2013. That's easily worse than prior forecasts of -13.3% and -0.8%, and is blamed on soft memory capex (perhaps a positive for MU and SNDK) and slow improvement in capacity utilization rates, which are expected to be under 80% at year's end. Applied Materials (AMAT) has already forecast a 5%-15% drop in industry sales in 2013, and TSMC recently provided slightly disappointing capex guidance.
