Global Epitaxy Deposition Market 2016-2020

About Epitaxy Deposition

Epitaxy is a method used to lay or grow a single crystalline film or layer over a crystalline-based semiconductor substrate or surface. The deposited substance must have a definite acclimatization with regard to the crystal-based semiconductor substrate. Chip manufacturers use either vapor- or molten-based foundations to develop such epitaxial overlayers.

The two methods that used for epitaxial deposition are homoepitaxy and heteroepitaxy. Homoepitaxy deposition is a method of laying a film or layer on a surface or substrate of a similar level of conformation. Heteroepitaxy is a deposition method by which a film or layer is deposited on a substrate of dissimilar composition.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global epitaxy deposition market to grow at a CAGR of 11.54% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Epitaxy Deposition Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Epitaxy Deposition Market: Applied Materials, Inc., ASM International, Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc., LAM RESEARCH CORPORATION, and Tokyo Electron Limited

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AIXTRON, Canon Anelva Corporation, IQE, and Veeco Instruments.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Semiconductor companies are moving to the fabless model mainly to reduce overhead expenses related to the operation and maintenance of foundries. Most of these companies are concentrating on the design and development of their solutions and are subcontracting their fabrication and other foundry-related activities to specialized companies. Due to this, the ratio between foundries and fabless companies is 1:11 in the global semiconductor market. Companies are also considering M&A to increase their production facilities and market shares.”

According to the report, the ever-increasing features and applications of smart devices such as smartphones and notebooks have created the need for high-performance semiconductor devices. Due to this, semiconductor manufacturers have increased the use of epitaxial deposition on the wafer over the last decade. The deposited layers are designed to have different compositional and electrical properties from the underlying wafer that can be adjusted according to the requirements of semiconductor devices.

Further, the report states that a challenge in epitaxial deposition is the need to inspect the thin-layered film at regular intervals to determine the presence of impurities such as particles, spikes, scratches, pits, and haze.
