Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The increasing demand for high performance and low power consumption in smaller electronic devices requires the miniaturization of semiconductor circuits. The miniaturization of semiconductor circuits involves a wafer fabrication process through dry etching. Circuit miniaturization requires more thorough dry etching and the number of each etch step increases as capacity additions are incorporated. Currently, electronic devices use semiconductors with circuit line widths in the 20nm range. However, it is expected that ultra-miniature circuits, with line widths in the 10nm range could be introduced during the forecast period. Thus, this growing need for the miniaturization of semiconductor circuits is expected to fuel the demand for semiconductor dry etching equipment.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the increasing demand for smart electronic devices. There has been unprecedented growth in the adoption of smart electronic devices such as mobile phones, smartphones, notebooks, PCs, tablets, ultrabooks, and PDAs in the past few years. These devices employ numerous semiconductor components such as microchips that increase the demand for dry etching equipment, as semiconductor components require microfabrication.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the cyclic nature of the Semiconductor industry. The revenue generated in the Semiconductor industry is cyclical in nature because the demand for etching is dependent on the economic climate, due to which production tends often to exceed demand.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
