Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market Introduction

Semiconductor manufacturing equipment market estimated to value over USD 66 billion by 2027 end and achieve CAGR of over 6.1% from 2020 to 2027.

The progress in R&D facilities coupled with the rise in foundries remains the key factor for the propelling of the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market. The rapid demand for consumer electronics is expanding the market. The growing number of servers and data centers is also complementing the market.

The market is bifurcated into front end equipment, backend equipment, fab facility, dimension, and region. Based on front end equipment, lithography holds the majority share of the market. Lithography adds more value to the final product, also lithography is profitable when compared to back-end equipment. The expansion of the automotive industry has also resulted in more demand for lithography.

Based on backend equipment, bonding equipment is projected to witness notable growth. Bonding ensures dependability and efficient productivity, which is a necessity for manufacturers. Bonding equipment performs various functions such as post-bond metrology, wafer alignment, surface cleaning, wafer bonding, and surface preparation. Silicon foundries highly value standardization, hence in order to achieve that there has been an immense demand for bonding equipment.

In terms of fab facility, automation holds a vast market share. The increase in demand for hybrid and electric vehicles has led to more demand for semiconductors.

Based on the dimensions, the 3D segment is expected to show notable growth. The latest advancement of electronic products has resulted in the demand for an electronic product which consists of high performance, high functionality, small form factor, and low cost. This has further soared the market and the demand for the 3D segment.

Based on region, North America is the global leader of the market. The rising demand for hybrid and electronic vehicles have accelerated the demand for semiconductors in the region. The presence of prominent players has also boosted the presence of the market in the region. Asia-Pacific region represents a lucrative opportunity. Emerging economies like China, Taiwan, Japan, and India represents a higher penetration for the market. The higher penetration is due to favorable policies launched by multiple governments. The governments are providing shared R&D, subsidies and tax rebates. Governments of China and India have launched a lucrative policy in order to attract manufacturers. Policies such as Made in China 2025 and Make in India have fueled the growth of the market in the region. The expansion of automotive, consumer goods has led to increasing demand for semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
