Global Semiconductor Chip Handlers Market to Grow 4.47% by 2020 - Rising Costs & Lack of Testing Standards are Key Challenges - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Semiconductor Chip Handlers Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The report forecasts the global semiconductor chip handler market to grow at a CAGR of 4.47% during the period 2016-2020.

Increasing number of fabless semiconductor companies and test houses will be a major trend in this market. One of the main reasons behind semiconductor companies going fabless is to minimize the overheads involved in foundry operations and maintenance. The majority of semiconductor companies are designing and developing their solutions and outsourcing fabrication- and foundry-related functions to IC companies specialized in manufacturing, assembling, and testing.

According to the report, one driver leading to the growth of this market is the miniaturization of electronic devices. The demand for compact electronic devices has been aggregating in sectors such as communication device, automotive, industrial manufacturing, and healthcare equipment. This has forced semiconductor IC manufacturers to invest in R&D to reduce the size and improve the performance of ICs, leading to the emergence of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and 3D stacked ICs based on through-silicon vias.

Further, the report states that the cyclical nature of semiconductor industry will be a major growth inhibiting factor for this market.
