Mass Flow Controllers Market to 2025 - Global Analysis and Forecasts by Flow Rate (Low, Medium and High); Sensors (Pressure Sensor and Thermal Sensor); Application (Gas Chromatography and Semiconductors); and Process (CVD, PVD, Plasma Etching Processes, Backside Water Cooling, FPD, and Others)
In our study, we have segmented the mass flow controllers market by flow rates, sensors, application, process and regionally. The different flow rates used in mass flow controllers are low flow rates, medium flow rates, and high flow rates. The sensor segment consists of two sensors namely thermal sensors and pressure sensors. Further the market is categorized on basis of application, which include gas chromatography and semiconductor. Various types of processes are chemical vapor deposition, physical vapor deposition, plasma etching, backside water cooling, and flat panel display. Regionally, the market is estimated on basis of four geographies as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC) and Rest of World (RoW).
The mass flow controller market is expected to generate US$ 1,588.0 Mn by the end of 2025, expanding at a CAGR 7.6% from US$ 891.9 Mn in 2017. The growth of mass flow controllers market is attributed to the significant rise in semiconductor manufacturing in Asian countries and the US. The mass flow controller plays a major role in semiconductors manufacturing as it impacts directly on the quality and efficiency of the final product. As the manufacturing of semiconductors is increasing at an exponential rate over the years the demand for technologically enhanced mass flow conductors is also surging. Moreover, with the advent of low gas flow rate, less processing time, and constantly plasma processing, the run to run repeatability and steady state performance of mass flow controllers is also gaining prominence among the semiconductor manufacturers. In most of the semiconductor manufacturing processes, the key critical variable is mass and not volume. The thermal mass flow controllers are resistant to changes in inlet pressures and temperature, which makes the systems or mechanism capable of providing direct measurement of mass flow. The other methods involved in measurement of gas or liquid flow in semiconductor products manufacturing involves measurement of volume flow, and needs to measure pressure and temperature separately to calculate and control mass and density flow. On the other hand, mass flow controllers (MFC) measures and controls molecular flow, which does not require any separate data, this makes the system or mechanism capable to deliver accurate results, which in turn makes the system more reliable. Pertaining to these benefits of mass flow controllers over other mechanisms, the manufacturers of semiconductor products are increasing adopting this technology, which is helping the market for mass flow controller to expand in the current scenario and is also foreseen to propel the market in the future.
The mass flow controllers’ manufacturers are encountering huge demand in the current times, as the semiconductor manufacturing is rising exponentially in Asia Pacific and North America regions. Electronics and semiconductor manufacturers in Europe are also increasing their production, which is again pressurizing the MFC manufacturers to increase their production. The mass flow controller market players are witnessing significant need for ease of technology in MFCs, which will allow the system to be unaffected or capable of autocorrecting the gas flowing throughout. Other parameters on which the manufacturers are emphasizing on are resisting humidity, pressure loss and insensitivity. These developments are anticipated to bolster the market in the coming years.
The market for mass flow controllers consists of well established companies as well as emerging players namely; Brooks Instruments, Horiba Stec Co. Ltd., MKS Instruments, Hitachi Metals Inc., Bronkhorst, Parker Hannifin Corporation, Axertis AG, Aalborg Instrument & Controls Inc., Alicat Scientific Inc. and Christian Burkert GmbH & Co. KG among others.
