About Thin-film Semiconductor Deposition
Deposition is the third-largest semiconductor equipment market, after lithography and etching and cleaning equipment. Growing demand for smaller and more efficient semiconductor components is the major driver for the semiconductor industry. Manufacturing small semiconductor chips requires advanced deposition equipment, which leads to increasing demand for that equipment. Semiconductor device manufacturers including foundries, memory device manufacturers, and integrated device manufacturers are the principal customers of thin film semiconductor equipment vendors.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global thin film semiconductor deposition market to grow at a CAGR of 14.08% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global thin film semiconductor deposition market for the period 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of CVD, physical vapor deposition (PVD), and others (which include atomic layer deposition (ALD), epitaxy, and electrochemical deposition (ECD) equipment).
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Thin-film Semiconductor Deposition Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Thin-film Semiconductor Deposition Market: Applied Materials, Hitachi Kokusai Electric, Lam Research, and Tokyo Electron.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AIXTRON, ASM International, IHI, Plasma-Therm, and Veeco Instruments.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Some of the trends prevailing in the market are increases in wafer size and investments. The size of silicon wafers is increasing to 300 millimeters, as shifting to larger-diameter wafers reduces the cost of manufacturing semiconductor ICs, ultimately helping vendors make profit. In addition, the market is experiencing a rise in memory spending on things such as 3D negative-AND (NAND) and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) by semiconductor device manufacturers. This is because the market for memory devices has higher growth potential than other semiconductor devices.”
According to the report, high demand for semiconductor devices is one of the primary reasons for growth in the semiconductor equipment market. This is driven by growth in the consumer electronics and memory segments. The emergence of 3D, ultra-high definition (UHD) TVs, and hybrid laptops has led to rising demand for semiconductor ICs. The expansion of fabs worldwide also drives the demand for semiconductor deposition equipment.
Further, the report states that the long investment payback period is a major challenge for semiconductor equipment vendors.
