Increasing number of fabless semiconductor companies and test houses
“Numerous semiconductor companies prefer to focus on the R&D of their solutions and outsource their fabrication and other foundry-related activities to companies that specialize in manufacturing, assembly, and testing of semiconductor ICs,” says Jujhar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for semiconductor equipment research.
The growing number of fabless semiconductor companies leads to an increase in the net aggregate demand for semiconductor ICs, which drives the demand for test equipment devices such as contact probers. The rising number of test houses has resulted in an increase in the number of potential customers of test equipment, thereby resulting in higher sales.
Emergence of new testing technologies
The test equipment industry is witnessing the emergence of new technologies to meet the growing demand for compact and efficient semiconductor test equipment. These technologies help the test equipment vendors to improve their product offerings, which will lead to a high demand for testing probers. Self-test technologies are designed into circuits to simplify the testing procedures.
The semiconductor manufacturing industry is evolving continuously due to the introduction of new processes and technologies. This trend will increase the testing cost, which will lead to a price pressure on the test equipment vendors. The vendors focus on product differentiation to remain competitive and address the specific demands of the customers.
Increase in the number of connected devices through IoT and other emerging markets
“The Internet of Things acts as a bridge between the virtual and the physical world by linking information, objects, and data. It provides connectivity to geographically distant locations and time zones and is an essential tool in product development. IoT is emerging as a crucial segment for a number of industry verticals, especially the commercial sector,” explains Jujhar.
These devices use microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-based sensors to detect and capture data and pass it to microcontroller units for controlling and process data. Image sensors are popularly used in devices such as digital cameras, automobiles, communication devices, and wearables. The increase in the demand for connected devices will drive the demand for testing equipment such as contact probers.
