Silicon Wafer Market 2019 Global Industry Growth and Leading Players: Elkem AS, Renewable Energy, Shin-Etsu Handotai, Siltronic AG, MEMC Electronic Materials, Advance Semiconductor, SUMCO

Press release from: Market Research Future



Market Research Future published a research report on “Silicon Wafers Market Research Report- Global Forecast 2022” – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast to 2022.

Market Highlights

Silicon wafer provides the data processing capabilities and are majorly used in integrated circuits. The silicon wafers market is segmented into 150mm, 200mm, 300mm, and 450mm on the basis of size of the silicon wafers. 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 is dominating the market and accounting for about 60-65% of the market revenue due to high demand in the solar industry.

Moreover, the growing demand for the solar energy will contribute to the growth of the solar panel and solar cells which in turn will boost up the silicon wafer market as the silicon wafers are widely used in the manufacturing of the solar cells.

Global Silicon Wafers Market - Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific leads the market for global silicon wafers market. Emerging countries like China, India and Japan is expected to dominate the region. The rising disposable income of the consumers, funding from government with growing demand for the electronic product by one of the largest population of the region is boosting the silicon wafer market in the region. The growing population also keeps the demand for electronic gadgets and devices constantly high, subsequently leading to the growth of the silicon wafers market. 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. The low-cost of wafers used in manufacturing solar cells has also created a market for silicon wafers in the North American region. This market is expected to grow at a fast pace, adding to the market share revenue, globally.

Industry News

December, 2017 - Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, has integrated hybrid III-V silicon lasers on 200mm wafers using standard CMOS process flow. This breakthrough shows the way to transitioning away from 100mm wafers and a process based on bulk III-V technology that requires contacts with noble metals and lift-off-based patterning. CMOS compatibility with silicon photonics lowers fabrication costs, and provides access to mature and large-scale facilities, which enables packaging compatibility with CMOS driving circuits.

November, 2017 - Heraeus Photovoltaic, the worldwide leading supplier of metallization solutions to the PV industry, announced a comprehensive cooperation agreement with Rietech Solar, a China-based manufacturer of silicon wafers for solar cells. Under the agreement, Rietech Solar will upgrade its manufacturing process to use Hera Glaze, the new high-purity SiO2 diffusion barrier coating from Heraeus, for mass production of it multi-crystalline wafers. For Heraeus, the agreement represents a major step to expand its presence upstream in the solar photovoltaic value chain.

December, 2017 - Apple collaborated with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to develop applications using silicon-based technology, the sources went on to unveil. The two companies intend to apply silicon wafers to dodge the bottleneck that includes the mass transfer of Micro LED chips onto receiver substrates
