Research and Markets: Global Semiconductor Dielectric Etching Equipment Market 2014-2018 with Applied Materials, Hitachi High-Technologies , Lam Research & Tokyo Electron Dominating
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s26fqw/global)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Semiconductor Dielectric Etching Equipment Market 2014-2018 with Applied
Materials, Hitachi High-Technologies , Lam Research & Tokyo Electron
Dominating" report to their offering.
The growth of the Global Semiconductor Dielectric Etching Equipment
market is driven by several factors, including the increasing demand for
smartphones and tablets. There has been unprecedented growth in the
adoption of smart electronic devices which employ numerous semiconductor
components like microchips. This is expected to lead to an increase in
the demand for dielectric etching equipment as semiconductor components
Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The increasing
demand for compact, energy-efficient, and high performance electronic
devices necessitates miniaturization of semiconductor circuits.
Miniature semiconductor circuits undergo wafer fabricatin process
through dielectric etching. Circuit miniaturization requires more
thorough dielectric etching and the number of etch steps increases as
capacity additions are incorporated. Currently, electronic devices use
semiconductors with circuit line widths in the 0-20nm range. However, it
is expected that ultraminiature circuits, with line widths in the 0-10nm
range could be introduced during the forecast period. Thus, the growing
need for miniaturization of semiconductor circuits is expected to fuel
the demand for semiconductor dielectric etching equipment during the
Further, the report states that despite the presence of several drivers,
the growth of the Global Semiconductor Dielectric Etching Equipment
market is curtailed by some serious challenges, such as the cyclical
nature of Semiconductor industry. The revenue generated in the
Semiconductor industry is cyclical in nature because the demand for
etching is dependent on the economic climate. Very often, production
tends to exceed demand, resulting in inventory pile up.
