Global Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market Definition

Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment can be defined as machinery used to manufacture semiconductors. The semiconductor industry is vast and possesses a various range of applications. There are two main aspects of the semiconductor manufacturing equipment industry: front-end equipment and back-end equipment. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment is an important component for carrying out fabrication processes. The semiconductor manufacturer is a laborious process and requires a high-quality fab facility. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment includes systems such as oxidation systems, epitaxial reactors, diffusion systems, ion implantation equipment, physical vapor deposition systems, chemical vapor deposition systems, photolithography equipment, and etching equipment.

Such equipment is used in order to deposit and remove different materials on and from the wafer in specific patterns until the circuit is completely built on the wafer. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment is the processing equipment that is used to manufacture different types of semiconductors with the help of technologically advanced machines. This type of equipment uses two types of process is front-end and back-end. The latest trend in this market is growing research and development leading to high-end manufacturing machines, increasing demand for the electric and hybrid machines that use these machines for their frame manufacturing.

Global Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market Overview

Growing demands for consumer electronics are expected to fuel the market for semiconductor manufacturing equipment. The growth of the semiconductor industry is highly driven by the increasing demand for semiconductor chips from consumer electronic devices, medical devices, and sensor systems manufacturers. In more recent years, expanding middle-class, changing lifestyle preferences, growing inclination toward using smart electronic devices are among the primary factors driving the growth of consumer electronics. This suggests that the market growth rate for semiconductor manufacturing equipment will increase significantly over the forecast period.

In addition, the semiconductor industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period. This is due to the increase in sales of both mobile and consumer electronic devices. The emergence of new technologies such as IoT, connected devices, ultra-high-definition (UHD) TVs, automation in automobiles, and hybrid laptops will continue to drive the demand for semiconductor wafers in the market over the forecast period. According to market experts, the demand for semiconductor wafers, especially in the automotive and industrial sectors will increase significantly during the forecast period. As shown above, the growth rate of smartphones and tablets is growing significantly and is boosting the growth rate of the semiconductor manufacturing industry as well.

However, tiny dust particles affect the overall semiconductor manufacturing and fabrication process which require clean room and clean equipment for manufacturing. Moreover, manufacturing defects also cause a delay in supply and can cause an additional loss in the form of order cancellation and shift of customers to other suppliers. The complexity of patterns increases because of multiple patterns on a chip at a very small scale. This requires high accuracy for transferring accurate data to the chip. The complexity of wafers has increased with the need for size reduction and a high density of semiconductor chips has resulted, which ultimately decreases lithography wavelength. The shrinkage in node size will make photomasks and wafers more complex, which will consequently result in the need for new semiconductor manufacturing equipment. All these factors inhibit the growth of the Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market.
