Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Mask Alignment Systems Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global mask alignment systems market: EV Group, Neutronix, and SUSS Microtek.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Applied Materials, ASML, Vistec Electron Beam, and Veeco Instruments (Ultratech).
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Miniaturization of electronics. A major trend identified in the market is the emergence of miniaturized semiconductor components such as ICs. Vendors such as SAMSUNG and Apple are focusing on manufacturing miniaturized personal electronic devices that consume less power. Semiconductor components range from ICs and chips to LED displays.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Emergence of advanced consumer products. The consumer electronics market has witnessed massive transformations in the last 5 years. Feature phones were replaced by smartphones, PCs were replaced by laptops, and laptops are being replaced by tablets currently. Cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs are getting replaced by smart TVs and LED TVs, and washing machines, coffee makers, and other household electronics are all becoming fully automated. Currently, the manufacturers and application developers are attempting to take this transition further by interconnecting all of these household devices and by creating a single unit called smart homes, which can be controlled by the applications installed on smartphones. To enhance the service quality, manufacturers are introducing up-to-date applications, with rich content, accessible by high-speed Internet connections. With such improved innovations and the consumer demand for better electronics, manufacturers are constantly focusing on bringing better consumer products with improved functionalities. The advent of smart wearables is the result of the R&D focused on consumer needs. Smart wearables include smartwatches, fitness trackers, and smart fabrics.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Rapid technological changes. Rapid technological advances in wafer processing have always been a significant challenge faced by the vendors in the wafer-level manufacturing equipment market. The semiconductor industry is continuously witnessing certain transitions, such as the miniaturization of nodes and the rise in the wafer sizes in the ultra-large-scale integration (ULSI) fabrication technology. This instigates semiconductor manufacturers to increase the development and adoption of new technologies.
