Moore’s Law, beyond being an observation and prediction, has become a self-fulfilling prophecy in the semiconductor industry. The widespread acceptance and reliance on Moore’s Law has driven the industry to invest heavily in research and development to maintain the predicted pace of advancement. Semiconductor companies have used Moore’s Law as a benchmark for setting their own goals and timelines for developing new technologies and products.

This self-fulfilling nature of Moore’s Law has created a sense of inevitability about the continued exponential growth of computing power. It has also led to a highly competitive industry, with companies racing to keep up with or exceed the expectations set by Moore’s Law. The economic incentives created by the self-fulfilling prophecy have fueled innovation and pushed the boundaries of what is possible in semiconductor technology.
