As technology develops, there is a rising need to make electronic devices more compact and portable. The fan-out wafer level packaging technology places multiple components on the same substrate, making the module smaller and more energy efficient. This fan-out wafer level packaging technique is used in consumer electronic devices, such as smartwatches & smartphones, incorporated with the Internet of Things (IoT) & Artificial Intelligence (AI), and the automotive industry to create features such as Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS).
 

Fan-out wafer level packaging is an Integrated Circuit (IC) packaging technology. The IC is packaged in a Wafer-level Package (WLP), which is fabricated on a semiconductor wafer. The IC is then separated from the wafer by dicing and the individual packages are separated from the wafer. Following the above processes, the individual packages are then tested and sorted. FOWLP outperforms traditional IC packaging technologies such as wire bonding and flip-chip. Smaller form factors, higher densities, and lower costs are among the benefits of FOWLP.

 

level packaging market growth. The lack of a specific solution to warping has stifled market growth. Warpage is defined as the distortion that occurs when the surface of a molded part does not conform to the design's intended shape. This causes the wafer surface to deform, rendering it unusable. One of the primary causes of this effect is the differential shrinkage of the material in the molded part, which results in a deformed & warped shape rather than a uniform, compact one.
 

COVID-19 Impacts

Due to restrictions on the movement of goods and severe disruptions in the semiconductor supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic, the fan-out wafer level packaging market experienced a decline in growth. The outbreak resulted in low inventory levels for clients of semiconductor vendors and distribution channels in Q1 2020. The Coronavirus outbreak is expected to have a long-term impact on the market.
 

Fan-Out Wafer Level Packaging Market Trends

The rising global demand for a wide range of electronic devices as well as the growing trend of miniaturization is expected to drive the demand for fan-out wafer level packaging during the forecast period. The increasing use of semiconductor ICs in IoT devices is propelling the global fan-out wafer level packaging industry statistics. The development of wired & wireless communication technologies, telecommunication standards such as 3G/4G/5G, and government initiatives to implement energy-efficient systems & solutions are driving the demand for these IoT devices. The growing number of IoT applications will increase the demand for IoT chipsets that are integrated into these devices. Wi-Fi modules, RF modules, FOWLP units (MCUs), and sensor modules are among the chipsets used in these IoT devices.
