Global Semiconductor Metal Etching Equipment Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (
) has announced the addition of the "Global Semiconductor Metal Etching Equipment Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018" report to their offering.
One of the major trends witnessed in the Global Semiconductor Metal Etching Equipment market is the emergence of miniaturized semiconductors. The increase in the demand for high-performance, low-power consumption and compact electronic devices necessitates the miniaturization of semiconductors. The miniaturization of semiconductor circuits requires wafer fabrication through various etching processes including metal etching. Currently, electronic devices use semiconductors with circuit line widths in the 20nm range. However, ultra-miniature circuits, with line widths in the 10nm range, are expected to be introduced during the forecast period. Therefore, the increasing number of miniaturized semiconductor ICs is expected to fuel the demand for semiconductor metal etching equipment, thereby propelling the growth of the market.
According to the report, the most important driver is the rising demand for smart electronic devices. In the recent past, there has been a significant increase in the adoption of smart electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets. These devices employ numerous semiconductor components such as microchips. This in turn is expected to increase the demand for metal etching equipment as semiconductor components undergo microfabrication through the metal etching process.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry. As a result of this, many metal etching equipment vendors often experience fluctuating revenues, which in turn affects their profitability. Moreover, the market often witnesses excess production, which results in inventory pile up.
Key vendors dominating this space are: - Applied Materials Inc.
- Hitachi High-Technologies Corp.
- Lam Research Corp.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are: - Jusung Engineering Co. Ltd - Mattson Technology Inc.
- Semes Co. Ltd.
- Tokyo Electron Ltd.
- ULVAC Technologies Inc.
