Analyzing the Global Semiconductor Equipment Market 2015

Analyzing the Global Semiconductor Equipment Market 2015

The global semiconductor industry has been posting solid growth in recent years. In 2014 itself, the industry posted record sales of USD 335.8 billion, as per the data released by the Semiconductor Industry Association earlier this year. The growth in 2014 was by far the strongest sales posted on record since the economic slump of 2008-2009. Logic accounted for the largest semiconductor sales category of the global semiconductor industry in 2014, with memory and micro-ICs (also including microprocessors) following next in line. Memory was also the fastest growing segment of the global semiconductor industry in 2014.

Similarly, after going through a lot of ups and downs, the global semiconductor equipment industry is also on a path to recovery, posting decent growth in 2014. It is expected to post strong growth by 2019. Wafer processing remained the strongest segment of the semiconductor equipment market, accounting for nearly 80% of the total industry's value. Wafer processing was followed by the test segment, followed by assembly and packaging, each accounting for eight percent and 6.3% respectively in 2014.

Asia Pacific led the global semiconductor equipment industry globally, having a value of over USD 25 billion in 2014. Many of the industry players are also based in Asia Pacific itself. The semiconductor equipment market is highly competitive and there is rapid technological change happening in the industry. For players to remain competitive within the industry, they need to constantly upgrade themselves with the technology. Competition further remains high as players fight for orders from a relatively limited number of manufacturers in the global market.
