Electronics Industry: Markets & Issues

Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

Electronics represents a unique opportunity to get in on the beginning of an incredible growth spurt, for an already huge industry; $400 billion/year in the U.S. now, moving up by 10%-20% per year in several sectors.  This is quite unlike many other U.S. industrial sectors, which often involve mature businesses requiring assistance to stay afloat.  The potential for forming business partnerships with electronics firms to deal with issues in energy efficiency, water availability/quality, air quality, productivity/yield, HVAC, power quality, wastewater, air emissions, etc., is staggering. The industrys oligopic nature provides serious opportunities to effect major impacts; a semiconductor chip plant is typically a $1.5 billion investment, runs at 10 to 20 MW, and uses a million gallons of water a day.  Since the electronics industrys growth rate will require siting of many new plants,  both remedial and preconstruction interventions can be applied to significantly reduce cost-of-ownership, by improving the energy efficiency, environmental impact, and productivity of electronics firms.
