Global Sapphire Technology Market, Opportunity Analysis, Market Shares and Forecast, 2016 - 2022
Sapphire is measured to be the second-hardest material after diamond. Sapphire is extra transparent, has fine flexibility, and is agile which can be molded in different shape as per the requirement. Other than physical characteristics, there is more functionality that sapphire can provides when used in a proper way.
The market of Sapphire Technology is segmented on the basis of sapphire substrate wafer, growth technology, and application, orientation type, and geography. The market of Sapphire Technology by growth technology is again sub-divided as sapphire substrate process, growth methods and production method, for sapphire. The sapphire substrate procedure consists of processes such as lapping, slicing, polishing, and CMP. The market of sapphire by production method is again divided on the basis of types of the available production methods such as Liquid Phase, Chemical Vapor Deposition, and Hybrid Vapor Phase Epitaxy, Thermal Exfoliation and other. The important segment which is the sapphire growth method defines the several technologies used for sapphire growth such as Czocharlski Crystal Pulling method, Kyropoulos method, Heat Exchanger method, Edge Defined Film Fed Growth method and others.
The Sapphire Technology Market by orientation type and substrate wafer which is further divide into three largest segments that includes types, and plane orientation, wafer size. By types the market is subdivided on the basis of the materials like Silicon Carbide on Sapphire, Silicon on Sapphire, Gallium Nitride on Sapphire, and so on. The sapphire substrate by wafer is sub divided on the basis of several available sapphire wafer sizes like 6 inch, 4 inch,2 inch and so on. The market by plane orientation provides a brief idea of the four major plane orientations such as M-plane, A-plane, C-plane, and R-plane.
The market of Sapphire Technology provides a detailed description of the devices like power IC market, power semiconductor market and Opto-Semiconductor market. The power semiconductor segment provides detailed description of the power discrete market such as diodes, switches, and so on, in which sapphire is widely used as largest foundation component. The power IC market consists of devices such as RFIC and MMIC market, while the opto semiconductor market provides all the details about sapphire that is used in this device.
On the basis of geography the Sapphire Technology Market is divided into four segments which include North Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. The Europe gives a explanation of the countries such as Germany, U.K., and others. The Asia-Pacific region, has the largest share of sapphire industry and largest growth market, consists of China, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and so on. The Rest of the World countries includes are the Middle East and others.
The prominent players of this market includes Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, ACME Electronics Corporation, Kyocera Corporation, Monocrystal Inc., DK Aztec Co., Ltd., Sapphire Technology Co., Ltd., Rubicon Technology Inc., GT Advanced Technologies Inc., Namiki Precision Jewel Co., Ltd, Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd Tera Xtal Technology Corporation,. among others.
