Global Sputtering Equipment Cathode Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Sputtering equipment cathode is a component of sputtering equipment that is used to create a plasma discharge. The cathode is responsible for emitting electrons into the discharge, which in turn ionizes the gas and creates the plasma. The importance of sputtering equipment cathode lies in its ability to generate ions that are necessary for sputter deposition.


The linear, also known as the straight or non-polarized wave, is a type of electromagnetic wave that oscillates at a constant frequency in one direction. The linear waves are generated by an antenna and can be used for transmission and reception purposes. In the semiconductor industry, sputtering equipment uses linearly polarised waves to remove material from surfaces of semiconductors during fabrication processes such as wafer processing.


The Cathode is the negative terminal of an electric battery. It is made from a metal and it has to be kept separate from the positive pole of the battery by using a protective case or Faraday Cage. The sputtering equipment uses high voltage between 0 and 25000 volts for generating plasma which in turn creates & extracts gases such as Ar, H, He, Ne, Xe and Kr ions along with other particles such as gold dust & platinum powder.

Application Insights:

The global demand for sputtering equipment cathode is expected to be driven by the growing electronics industry. The global production of electronic devices has increased exponentially over the past few years and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. This growth in turn will drive demand for sputtering equipment cathode, which in turn will fuel market growth.

Electronics was the largest application segment with a share of 33.9% in 2017 owing to increasing use of semiconductors and circuit boards in various end-use industries such as consumer electronics, telecommunication & IT, automotive & transportation among others.

     Automotive was another prominent segment accounting for a significant share on account of high usage rate and rising number of vehicles requiring lightweight vehicle parts that are manufactured using composites including aluminum alloys.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for electronic products and automobiles. In addition, rising investments by various governments in developing countries such as China and India are likely to boost industry expansion over the next eight years.

Europe accounted for a major share of revenue in 2017 on account of high product penetration across several end-use industries including aerospace, electronics, automotive, etc.

North America also accounted for a significant share of revenue in 2017 owing to growing electronics industry particularly within U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for flat panel displays (FPDs) and semiconductor devices
  • Growing popularity of nanotechnology and its applications in various industries
  • Rising demand for energy-efficient and environment-friendly technologies
  • Proliferation of advanced deposition techniques such as atomic layer deposition (ALD) and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD)
  • Technological advancements in sputtering equipment that offer improved performance, higher throughput, and lower cost
