Just 3 chip manufacturers - Intel (INTC), Samsung (SSNLF.PK), and TSMC (TSM) - will account for 57% of 2013 chip industry capex, estimates IC insights. That figure, up from 2012's 54%, drives home the extent chip equipment maker fortunes now hinge on the spending plans of a handful of firms, and also the big lead the industry giants have opened up in economies of scale relative to smaller rivals. IC Insights expects total industry capex to grow 2% this year to $59.8B, after falling 11% last year.

    And the naysayers or now saying, what, oh I am sorry, I should give you your chance. When everyone has thrown out their chips, it's always nice to have some on the side to buy what nobody else wants. We are still in the early stages of all of this.
