The lithography equipment segment is expected to grow at higher rates over the forecast period. The growth is attributed to extensive research & development in the field. As per the data shared by the Semiconductor Industry Association, in 2018, the global semiconductor industry accounted for over USD 450 billion. The demand for semiconductors is increasing in telecommunication, automotive, consumer durables, and memory devices, rising the demand for cost-effective Integrated Circuit (IC) manufacturing systems. The industry is witnessing an exponential rise in the investments for upgrading and constructing semiconductor plants (foundries). For instance, in December 2018, Intel Corporation announced the investment of over USD 70 million for its chip manufacturing plant expansion to meet the changing market demands.
The demand for wafer bonding equipment is increasing across industries to ensure reliability and efficient productivity. The bonding systems are used for several applications such as wafer alignment, surface preparation & cleaning, post-bond metrology & wafer bonding, etc. Standardization is highly valued by silicon foundries and integrated system manufacturers, supporting the adoption of bonding equipment. The increasing utilization of various types of semiconductor ICs for several automotive functions such as ABS, power doors, airbag control, and car navigation will fuel the demand for reliable and energy-efficient semiconductor devices, surging the demand for advanced bonding systems.
The Asia Pacific semiconductor manufacturing equipment market is expected to witness high growth owing to growth in the semiconductor industry and the presence of a number of equipment manufacturers. The rising financial support from Asian governments is encouraging companies to invest in the construction of new semiconductor fabrication plants in the region. The Indian government is supporting the construction of semiconductor fabrication facilities by using the emerging technology of Gallium Nitride semiconductor fab. Additionally, in May 2018, the Chinese government announced the investment of USD 50 billion to improve its ability to design, develop, and manufacture semiconductor chips. Such initiatives by governments are expected to contribute to the market growth in the region. Additionally, the rising demand for smartphones, tablets, and PCs in Japan, India, and China due to the growing number of technologically aware population will drive the demand for advanced semiconductor chips in the region.
The leading companies operating in the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market include Applied Materials Inc., ASML Holdings N.V., Tokyo Electron Ltd., Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation, Teradyne Inc., LAM RESEARCH Corporation, Advantest Corporation, KLA-Tencor Corporation, and Screen Holdings Co. Ltd. Several companies are developing products with advanced features to meet changing consumer demands.
