Texas Instruments Sees Higher Chip Demand: The Dallas-based maker of semiconductors said the predicted growth of about 21% in the global market this year, to $124 billion, will come primarily from continued strength in the Asia-Pacific region and the United States. It also cited Europe's improved economy. Texas Instruments chief economist Vladi Catto said he expects the world semiconductor industry to grow between 15% and 20% beyond 1995. Specifically, Texas Instruments Inc. projects that the U.S. market will grow 22% to $41 billion, from $34 billion in 1994.
