The global back end of the line semiconductor equipment market is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 1.41% during the period 2016-2020.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: Increase in the number of fabless semiconductor companies will be a key trend for market growth. Semiconductor companies are going fabless in order to minimize overhead costs related to operations and maintenance of foundries. The majority of semiconductor companies are more intent on the design and development of their solutions, thereby outsourcing fabrication and other foundry-related activities to companies specializing in manufacturing, assembly, and testing of semiconductor ICs.
This has affected the ratio of foundries and fabless companies, which stood at 1:11 in 2015 in the global semiconductor market. The rising number of fabless manufacturers will lead to an increase in the net aggregate demand for semiconductor ICs, thus generating demand for BEOL semiconductor equipment.
According to the report, advanced transformation requires constant upgrades in consumer offerings. Capital investments play a key role in ensuring that R&D activities never suffer a cash crunch. Therefore, the proliferation of advanced consumer electronics will only induce more capital investments and hence is a key driver.
