Global Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Systems Market 2015-2019
About semiconductor wafer cleaning systems
Electronic devices are made up of different components, which are made up of semiconductor wafers. The quality of the device is dependent upon the quality of the semiconductor wafers, which undergoes many processes during the production process. Each process can contaminate the wafer by imposing some impurities on the wafer surface. As these wafers are small in size and get smaller with technical advancements, the detection and removal of impurities becomes challenging. To make these wafers contamination-free and to ensure a higher production yield, semiconductor wafer cleaning systems are important and are used by the semiconductor foundries during the fabrication processes.
The semiconductor wafer cleaning system maintains a balance between the precision and productivity in the production process and improves manufacturing yield. The increasing need for improved quality products and the ease of fabricating pure wafers for ultra-large-scale integration (ULSI) processes have hiked the demand for sophisticated semiconductor wafer cleaning technologies and equipment.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global semiconductor wafer cleaning systems market to grow at a CAGR of 8.82% over the period 2014-2019.
