Market for wafer surface conditioning is projected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period among front-end equipment

Among different types of front-end equipment, wafer surface conditioning is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025 The chemical mechanical planarization process in wafer surface conditioning has a key role, to plane the wafer surface and smoothen the wafer surface that is required to manufacture more powerful semiconductor devices. It helps in the elimination of particle impurities from the surface layer without damaging the surface structure.

Market for wafer testing equipment is projected to grow at highest CAGR during 2020-2025

Among back-end equipment, the wafer testing equipment is projected to witness the highest CAGR from 2020 to 2025. Although the testing equipment is mostly focused on back-end processes, it is also used in front-end processes. These testing devices are vital for testing electronic devices for functionality and performance at different points during the semiconductor manufacturing process.

With new technological development, there is an increase in the design complexities and development of new products. The increased investments in R&D and technological advancement in networking and communication devices has raised the demand for best-of-class ICs and SOCs. This need can be satisfied by enabling the investment in testing equipment for developing the best quality ICs.

Semiconductor manufacturing equipment for memory device accounted for largest market share in 2019

Among products, the memory segment is projected to lead the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market from 2020 to 2025. New technologies in memory, such as MRAM, ZRAM, PCRAM, and RRAM, are expected to replace most of the traditional technologies. This shift in the memory market has demanded the change in dynamics of manufacturing equipment, enforcing semiconductor manufacturing equipment providers to develop more efficient designs for the device manufacturers.

APAC is expected to hold largest share of semiconductor manufacturing equipment market in 2025

APAC is expected to hold the largest share of the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market in 2025. The development of semiconductor devices in Asian economies such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan drives the semiconductor equipment market.
