Global Front Opening Unified Pods (FOUPs) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Front Opening Unified Pods (FOUPs) are a type of pod that is designed to open at the front, as opposed to the top. This allows for easier access and loading of items into the pod. FOUPs are often used in military applications, where quick access to items stored inside is critical.

13 Wafer Capacity:

13 Wafer Capacity is the total capacity of integrated circuits (ICs) in a single wafer, which can be used in any product. The 13-wafers per year production rate has been adopted by most of the leading semiconductor companies across the globe as it provides them an opportunity to scale up their manufacturing processes and reduce their capital investment.

25 Wafer Capacity:

25 Wafer Capacity is the total number of silicon wafers that can be processed in a single batch. It is used to calculate the volume of silicon required for manufacturing FOUPs. The 25-wafer capacity is also referred to as “volume” or “capacity” and it represents how many grams of finished product (FOP) can be produced from a specific quantity (by weight) of raw material i.e.

Application Insights:

The 300mm unified pods system is expected to witness significant demand in the data centers segment over the forecast period. The growing need for high-density interconnection of multiple components, such as processors, memory devices and storage devices in a computer server room has resulted in increased use of 300mm FOUP.

The market for front opening unified pods by application is segmented into data center, IT & telecommunication and others. The IT & telecommunication sector accounted for more than 30% share of global revenue in 2017 on account of increasing demand from end users including telecom companies and internet service providers across the globe.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global front opening unified pods market in terms of revenue with a share of over 40.0% in 2017. This is attributed to the presence of major players such as Intel and Micron Technology, Inc., which are engaged in extensive R&D for developing advanced semiconductor products. Moreover, technological advancements coupled with high demand for energy-efficient products have resulted in increased adoption of FOUPs across this region.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand from China and Japan on account of rapid industrialization along with growing electronics industry especially after 2020 Tokyo Olympics results are out (Gold medal for Japan). Furthermore, rising investments by various companies such as Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.; TSMC; and SK Hynix Inc.; among others will drive regional market growth over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for front opening unified pods (FOUPs) in the defense sector due to their high efficiency and easy operability.
  • Growing popularity of front opening unified pods (FOUPs) in the commercial sector for storage and transportation of goods, owing to their features such as high storage capacity and durability.
  • Rising demand for front opening unified pods (FOUPs) from small businesses due to their low cost and easy portability.
  • Increasing use of front opening unified pods (FOUPs) by emergency responders for storing medical supplies, food, water, etc., during disasters or emergencies situations.
