Global Semiconductor Dielectric Etching Equipment Market 2016-2020

Market outlook of the global semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market

Semiconductor dielectric etching equipment is used for etching dielectric materials in the semiconductor manufacturing process. The growth rate of the semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market has been fluctuating and is highly dependent on the global semiconductor market, and on the increasing demand from semiconductor manufacturers who are expanding their production capacity. Thus, due to these factors, the overall market is expected to decline at a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period.

Nevertheless, the increasing demand for smart devices such as smartphones and tablets is one of the factors, which is expected to drive the market growth. The penetration rate of smartphones in developed regions such as North America, Western Europe, China, and Japan is around 80 percent of the population. The rising shipments of smart devices is projected to foster the demand for semiconductor devices such as flat panel display screens and NAND flash memory, which are integral parts of smartphones.

Geographical segmentation of the global semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market

The APAC region has been dominating the semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market, accounting for a share of more than 65% in 2015. The existence of major semiconductor device manufactures in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan is the key reason for the major revenue contribution.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Semiconductor Dielectric Etching Equipment Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Semiconductor Dielectric Etching Equipment Market: Applied Materials and Lam Research

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AMEC, Jusung Engineering Co. Ltd., Oxford Instruments, SPTS Technologies, and ULVAC Technologies Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Semiconductor companies are going fabless to minimize overhead costs related with operations and maintenance of foundries. The majority of semiconductor companies focus on design and development and outsource fabrication and other foundry-related activities to companies specializing in the manufacturing, assembly, and testing of semiconductor ICs.”

According to the report, a new technique of chip packaging known as 3D IC is on the rise. This technique stacks multiple chips into a single stack, thus using less space within the device, reducing power consumption, and improving transmission speed. Chip manufacturers are making 3D ICs to meet the demands of electronic product manufacturers that are looking for improved performance and minimize the space occupied by ICs.

Further, the report states that one major factors that affects the business of global vendors is the fluctuations in exchange rates.
