Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Dielectric Etchers Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global dielectric etchers market: Applied Materials, Hitachi High-Technologies, Lam Research, Tokyo Electron, and Mattson Technologies.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AMEC, JUSUNG ENGINEERING, Oxford Instruments, SEMES, SPTS Technologies, and ULVAC.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is emergence of 3D ICs. A three-dimensional integrated circuit is manufactured by piling silicon wafers and interconnecting them with TSV to behave as a single device. Advances in technology require faster, better-performing chips that do not consume high energy. All the mentioned features can be achieved through 3D chip stacking. 3D ICs are increasingly being produced by chip manufacturers to meet high demands of electronic product manufacturers. This demand is increasing the need for smart and miniaturized electronics.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growth in the global semiconductor industry. The growth in innovative devices, such as smartphones, tablets, ultramobile, electric cars, aircraft, wearable devices, smart TV, and smart air conditioners, is the major driving factor for the number of semiconductor components in these devices. The advance of digitization and IoT are the major drivers to increase the demand for semiconductor products. With the increasing demand for security and connectivity, the semiconductor industry is providing devices with improved functionalities of sensors, actuators, and computing power. Connectivity of information is driving the market for sensors. The industrial and automotive market is also contributing to the major growth in the global semiconductor market.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is rising discrepancies between the semiconductor industry and capital equipment. The semiconductor industry is expanding enormously and endlessly with advances in technology. The industry is driven by a cycle of continuous improvements in technology and growth in innovation and demand in the end-user applications. The industries face challenges to provide new and better products. The cost of manufacturing equipment is rising exponentially. The initial investment is very high to build a competitive semiconductor processing plant. Therefore, despite having many semiconductor vendors only a few add new facilities.
