Executive Summary

Wafer testing performed by semiconductor producer is done with the help of test equipment devices that are called probe cards. Probe cards are the testing devices used by semiconductor manufacturers to perform wafer test on semiconductor die and chips. Traditional probe cards contact just a part of the wafer, requiring various touchdowns to test the whole wafer. There has been improvements in designs to suit a wide range of contactor technologies so that the contactor technology can develop according to the necessities of the customers.

The global probe card market increased at a significant CAGR during the span of four years, i.e. 2013-2017 and projections are made that the market would rise in the next five years i.e. 2018-2022, tremendously. The market can be segmented, on the basis of technology into: blade/tungsten, epoxy/cantilever, vertical probe and MEMS. The probe card market segmentation is also done on the basis of device into Foundry & Logic, DRAM, Flash and Engineering Systems.

The growth drivers for the global probe card market are: emergence of TSV technology, the prevalence of miniaturization, rise in the semiconductor market and LED market. Despite the market is governed by various growth drivers, there are certain challenges faced by the market such as: continuous price pressure on vendors, cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry, and limited number of suppliers. Some of the recent trends in the market include developments in the semiconductor market & LED market relating to probe cards, transition from cantilever probe cards to advanced probe cards and the emerging strong players.
