One of the major drivers in this market is the increasing demand from smartphone manufacturers. Smartphones provide the highest growth potential for the Global Semiconductor Capital Equipment market since advanced semiconductor equipment are increasingly being used in the manufacture of smartphones.
The Global Semiconductor Capital Equipment market is witnessing an increasing number of mergers and acquisitions, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years.
