Silicon Wafers Market – Synopsis
Silicon wafer provides the data processing capabilities and are majorly used in integrated circuits. Presently, 300mm diameter wafers are widely used by the semiconductor industry. It is also expected that over the next couple of years, the market will show some progress towards the 450mm diameter wafers. But major manufacturers present in the market are restraining to invest in the new technology. The main reason behind it is high manufacturing costs of semiconductor processing tools. In spite of the above challenges, major companies in the market are still working on 450mm wafers. Due to high cost of manufacturing process of the 450mm will restrict the small companies to implement this technology. In 2015, the 300mm silicon wafers segment dominated the market and accounting for about 60-65% of the market revenue due to high demand in the solar industry.
Silicon Wafers Market – Regional Analysis
The Global Silicon Wafers market is estimated to grow at a promising rate in upcoming years. EMEA is the leading region among North America, and Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region which is estimated to show high growth during forecast period. Increasing demand of advanced technological gadgets such as computers, laptops, and smartphones is the major growth drivers for silicon wafers market in Asia-Pacific region.
Countries such as China, U.S and Japan are some of the major leading countries in this market. China is said to have the one of the largest market for the electronics. Semiconductor makers of the china are still behind the international rivals. To support the market, china government is making the effort to promote its domestic technology market by funding to support the industry players. There are also some companies such as Lenovo and Huawei technologies are the largest manufacturer and supplier of the technology.
North America is expected to demonstrate the moderate growth due to the growing market of solar cell in the region.
European region will show the steady growth in the silicon wafers market as the automotive, electronic market which make use of the silicon wafers are already established in the region.
