LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s global atomic layer deposition (ALD) market research report project the market to grow at a CAGR of nearly 13% during the forecast period.
The focus on increasing wafer sizes will be one of the major trends in the global atomic layer deposition market during 2018-2022. The ALD systems have been witnessing rising focus on production volumes due to the adoption of larger wafer sizes to manufacture semiconductor components. The increase in wafer sizes reduces the manufacturing costs of semiconductor companies. Wafer sizes have increased over the years: 100 mm in 1975, 200 mm in 1990, 300 mm during 2000-2001, to 450 mm in 2017. But the uncertain ROI in larger wafer fabs can act as an inhibitor for the adoption of 450mm wafers. Thus, the vendors have been focusing on providing ALD equipment with high wafer processing capacity.

According to Technavio analysts, one of the key drivers for the global atomic layer deposition market is the high demand for NAND storage:
Global atomic layer deposition market: High demand for NAND storage
NAND storage is becoming increasingly popular owing to its high application performance and lower latency when compared with tape and hard disk storage. During 2014-2017, the global demand for NAND storage increased at a CAGR of around 39%. New technologies such as 3D NAND are being introduced due to the growing storage requirements.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on semiconductor equipment, “3D NAND comprises of multistoried memory structures stacked together for higher memory storing capacity. ALD systems facilitate the manufacturing process of 3D NAND and help in achieving a stacked structure for 3D NAND memory systems. Hence, with the increasing demand for 3D NAND memory systems, the global atomic layer deposition market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.”
