Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

Developments in semiconductor technology, growing demand for high-performance integrated circuits and developments in semiconductor technology, and the increasing adoption of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags drive the growth of the global thin wafer processing and dicing equipment market. On the other hand, the high cost associated with the manufacturing process restrains growth to some extent. However, the wafers' high-quality flat surface is the primary reason for their increasing integration into processing. Investments in wafer enhancement have paved the way for lucrative opportunities in the industry.

Covid-19 Scenario

  • Due to the global slowdown in demand in the industrial and automotive electronics sectors that the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened, manufacturers operating in the market have registered a decline in orders for Thin Wafer semiconductors.
  • As China, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and the US are among the top countries known for having a strong base of manufacturing semiconductor components and wafers. The pandemic situation heavily disrupted semiconductor production activities.
  • Disruptions in the supply chain also hampered the manufacturing of thin wafer processing and dicing equipment across the world. However, the market has now got back on track.

The Dicing Equipment Segment to Maintain its Dominance During the Forecast Period

By equipment type, the dicing equipment segment garnered the highest share in 2021, holding nearly three-fifths of the global thin wafer processing and dicing equipment market revenue. This is because during dicing the round wafers are typically mounted on dicing tape to ensure the fixed position of the wafer on the very thin metal sheet frame. The task of the wafer dicing machines is to cut wafers into individual semiconductor chips with blades. Automated dicing tools are ideal for use in production environments where large numbers of wafers are processed and wafer and die dimensions are constant. During R&D and when only small batches of chips are required, it is beneficial to have a clean, accurate, repeatable, and fast tool to dice wafers.

The 5-inch and 6-inch Segment to Dominate by 2031

By wafer size, the 5-inch and 6-inch segment accounted for nearly two-thirds of the global thin wafer processing and dicing equipment market share in 2021, and is projected to retain its domnance by 2031. Wafer size, which refers to a wafer's diameter, is a crucial factor in the process of making semiconductors. In high-volume manufacturing, a bigger wafer size allows for the fabrication of more dies per wafer, which lowers costs.

The Memory and Logic segment to Rule the Roost

By application, the memory and logic segment accounted for more than three-fifths of the global thin wafer processing and dicing equipment market revenue in 2021, and is projected to retain the lion's share by 2031. This is due to the widespread adoption of low-cost cloud computing solutions, there is a significant increase in the implementation of server and data center systems across a variety of businesses and industries, which in turn drives the demand for logic devices like microprocessors and digital signal processors. Thinning technology is preferred in logic devices to enable high-speed processing and reconfigurations. Thin wafers are being utilized in these devices more frequently to guarantee effective heat control and maximize performance, which helps to fuel the expansion of the thin wafer market for logic devices.

Asia-Pacific Garnered the Major Share in 2021

By region, Asia-Pacific contributed to the highest share in 2021, garnering more than one-third of the global thin wafer processing and dicing equipment market revenue. Asia Pacific is the largest and fastest-growing semiconductor market in the world. Significant demand for smartphones and other consumer electronics devices from China, the Republic of Korea, and Singapore is prompting many vendors to set up manufacturing facilities in the region. In the case of India, the recent increase in customs duties on imported electronics is a major factor in attracting Apple and other multinational corporations to establish manufacturing facilities there. More than 90% of the foundries built worldwide in 2017 were located in the Asia-Pacific region, as stated by the SEMI, a prominent global association serving the electronics manufacturing supply chain.
