LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s new market research report on the global semiconductor wafer cleaning systems market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2018-2022. Technavio foresees an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
According to Technavio research analysts, the global semiconductor wafer cleaning systems market will post a CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period. However, the growth momentum of the market will decelerate due to a decrease in the year-over-year growth. One of the major factor fueling the market’s growth is the increase in capital spending. The global semiconductor industry is anticipated to witness an increase in capital spending. This rise in capital spending is a key growth driver of the global semiconductor wafer cleaning systems market because it indicates that foundries and memory manufacturers will invest heavily in purchasing new equipment. The primary reason for increasing the capital expenditure (CAPEX) is to meet the requirements such as decreasing linewidths on a chip, use of new materials, introduction of new complex structures, increasing chip design costs, and need for integrated manufacturing processes.

In this report, Technavio highlights the increase in the wafer size as one of the major emerging trends driving the global semiconductor wafer cleaning systems market:
Increase in the wafer size
The semiconductor industry is evolving constantly with rapid technological advancements and transitions such as the miniaturization of nodes and the increase in the wafer sizes. Thus, to succeed in this changing, competitive landscape, equipment manufacturers should develop new technologies that match the semiconductor IC architecture. Considering this, they invest heavily in R&D to create next-generation semiconductors ICs. Over the last few years, the semiconductor industry has been experiencing an increase in the size of silicon wafers, from 100 mm to 300 mm. The shift to wafers with larger diameters reduces the manufacturing cost of semiconductor ICs by 20%-25%.
“At present, the semiconductor industry is mainly using 300 mm wafers to produce ICs. With companies investing billions of dollars in upgrading and constructing new fabs, the 300 mm wafer size is anticipated to be the key technology being utilized. But, the market demand for 200 mm wafer will not decline during the forecast period as devices such as microcontrollers, image sensors, and a few MEMS-based products still use 200 mm wafers for manufacturing,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on semiconductor equipment.
