NEW YORK, March 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Ferroelectric Thin Films Markets

This report provides a complete analysis of the sapphire substrates industry along with key market metrics. It provides updated volume and $ forecast for finished wafers and volume forecast for material through 2015 along with capacity analysis, price trends and new company profiles.

Market Trends

Ferroelectric thin films have been used for many years in Integrated Passives Devices (IPDs), Ferroelectric memories (FeRAM) and MEMS inkjet heads. Such thin films can be used for ferroelectric, piezoelectric or pyroelectric properties.

Ferroelectric materials were considered as exotic materials in the past in the semiconductor domain. Thanks to better knowledge and industrialization of these materials, they are increasingly used in many new applications, especially in the MEMS field: MEMS wafer level autofocus, RF MEMS, MEMS ultrasonic transducers infrared sensors, IPD tunable capacitors, and many others.

Physical Vapor Deposition is the dominant deposition technique but Chemical Solution Deposition techniques will increase its market share greatly, especially in MEMS applications thanks to its better material composition.

PZT, the most well-known ferroelectric material will keep the leadership on SBT, BST, except if other materials are developed to replace lead, black listed by the RoHs European directive.

Market Metrics

Driven by existing and new applications, the production of ferroelectric thin films will grow from 881,000 6'' eq. wafers in 2010 to 1,263,000wafers in 2015, meaning a CAGR of +7.5 %.

Inkjet head application and IPDs ESD/EMI planar capacitor represent more than 90% of the production in 2010 but other applications will grow strongly to reach globally 26% of the total production.

Large industrial companies are already using ferroelectric thin films in various applications fields, showing the reliability of this technology:



- FeRAM: Panasonic, Fujitsu, Rhom, Oki,Ramtron

In the next 5 years, many new players plan to adopt or evaluate ferroelectric thin films to enter on key markets, from SMEs (Polight, Irisys, NovioMEMS…) to large groups (Oce, Xaar, Delphi, IBM, Philips research…).
