Interface with Critical Materials Council of Semiconductor Fabricators

CMC Members meet monthly by phone, and 2-times per year face-to-face (F2F). Monthly meetings include analyst presentations and discussions on the latest industry trends relating to semiconductor materials markets (phone meetings for suppliers are separate from those of the fabs). The F2F meetings occur in the Spring (April) and Fall (late October), and include a private joint session with both Fab and Associate members, and a Seminar or Conference. These activities provide networking opportunities as well as informed market information to map out your market landscape and grow your electronics or semiconductor business.

Access to Materials Market/Technology Analysts

CMC Associate Membership includes access to specialized market analysts anytime throughout the membership term. Members may contact the analyst for questions relating to the Critical Material Report they purchased. The amount of time per question session is limited to ~30 min of the analyst’s time, and can be facilitated over email or by phone. Any questions that require additional research or time will be quoted to the client separately and performed upon mutual agreement.

Report Information Disclaimer

The information contained in TECHCET CA, LLC’s Critical Material Reports represent the interpretation and analysis of information generally available to the public or released by responsible agencies or individuals. Data was obtained from sources considered reliable. However, accuracy or completeness is not guaranteed. This report contains information generated by TECHCET by way of primary and secondary market research methods.


Should you wish to cancel prior to the end of the 12 month period of membership, TECHCET will charge the credit card on file for the remaining balance, i.e. the list price of the report selected with the membership, plus the prorated amount of the membership incurred.


As a benefit to our customers, it is TECHCET’s policy to provide the latest Quarterly Update with the CMR for each CMC and DSS member.  For example, customers joining in the beginning of any calendar year will receive the most recent CMR + the latest Quarterly Update. Those customers who join after April 1 will not receive an extra Quarterly Update with their membership because the CMR report will incorporate the Q2 information. All customers will still receive 1-3 new Quarterly Updates after the purchase date.
