The advanced packaging technology helps these players to manufacture technically advanced semiconductor wafers and chipsets that offer high performance, a smaller footprint, and low-power consumption features. The transition toward the More than Moore approach with continuous change in wafer & transistor node size is expected to accelerate the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market growth. Several industry participants are extensively investing in research & development to innovate advanced packaging technologies in the market.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the acceptance of semiconductor manufacturing equipment by the automotive, industrial, and consumer electronics sectors owing to the temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities in the first half of 2020. In early 2020, the supply chain for the semiconductor industry was heavily impacted attributed to prolonged lockdowns imposed by governments and regulatory bodies across the globe. This factor has severely hindered the market potential for semiconductor manufacturing equipment providers. In the second half of 2020, the demand for desktop/PCs, laptops, tablets, and smartphones witnessed a rapid increase due to the increasing work-from-home scenario. An increase in demand for consumer electronic goods across the North American and APAC economies during the pandemic is set to support the business growth of semiconductor manufacturing equipment vendors.

Technological advancements in extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography will fuel the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market expansion

The front-end semiconductor manufacturing equipment segment dominated more than 60% of revenue share in 2020 and will showcase around 9% growth rate through 2027. Industry growth is credited to several high-end features offered by the lithography front-end equipment, such as nano-imprinting, high accuracy, and faster chipset-processing speed, which support the volume/mass manufacturing of semiconductors. These lithography systems are high-cost equipment whose prices can be accounted for up to USD 150 million per unit. This semiconductor manufacturing equipment provide high-profit margins to their manufacturers & suppliers. The demand for lithography equipment is cyclic and is majorly driven by foundry companies & IDMs.
