Global Epitaxial Silicon Wafer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Epitaxial Silicon Wafer is a type of silicon wafer that is grown epitaxially on top of a single crystal silicon substrate. This results in a very smooth, uniform surface, which is important for device fabrication.

Polished wafer:

Polished wafer, also known as silicon slag or sputter target, is a by-product obtained during the production of epitaxial silicon wafers used in advanced microelectronics. Polished wafers are made from high purity (99.999%) polycrystalline or single-crystal Silicon and are used for various applications in semiconductor devices including RF circuits and MEMS sensors.

Epitaxial wafer:

Epitaxial wafer is a thin, solid piece of material that is used to grow epitaxy on the silicon surface. It consists of an upper layer and a lower layer made from different materials such as SiC, SiO2 or Ge. The upper layer acts as an insulator while the lower one serves as a conductor for electricity or heat.

Application Insights:

The chemical segment dominated the global epitaxial silicon wafer market in terms of revenue share in 2017. The growth can be attributed to rising demand for chemicals such as polycrystalline silicon, monocrystalline silicon and single-crystal Silicon Carbide (SiC). These materials are used in a variety of applications including semiconductors, optoelectronics and sensors.

The medical devices segment is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to increasing adoption of electronic devices such as pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators among other medical equipment. Moreover, growing investments by governments across various countries towards R&D for the development of new healthcare technologies is also anticipated to boost industry growth over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising demand from end-use industries such as electronics, chemical, medical devices and solar energy. China is projected to remain a key player in this industry owing to low manufacturing cost coupled with easy availability of raw materials.

The Europe market for epitaxial silicon wafers was valued at USD X million in 2017.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for semiconductor devices: The global semiconductor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2016 to 2020, reaching a value of USD 333.8 billion by 2020. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for semiconductor devices across various applications such as consumer electronics, automotive, industrial and medical sectors.
  • Rising demand for advanced electronic products: The need for advanced electronic products such as smartphones, tablets and wearable electronics is driving the growth of the epitaxial silicon wafer market. These products require miniaturized and more complex circuitry that can only be achieved through the use of high-quality epitaxial silicon wafers.
