Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The Semiconductor industry has always been highly volatile in terms of demand fluctuations. As a result, semiconductor manufacturers are forced to improve the performance and reliability of their offerings. Further, the regular introduction of electronic devices by OEMs in the end-user market is expected to create a demand for semiconductor-based components to enhance the functionalities of their offerings. Driven by factors like these, the Global Semiconductor market is expected to witness rapid technological advancements in the next few years, which in turn is expected to compel FEOL semiconductor separation equipment manufacturers to upgrade their products such that they meet the expectations of their technologically advanced customers.”
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increasing adoption of mobile devices. Over the past few years, there has been an unprecedented growth in the usage of mobile devices. The market for devices such as cell phones, smartphones, notebook PCs, tablets, ultrabooks, and PDAs is increasing among consumers. This increased demand for mobile devices is leading to a consequential rise in the demand for FEOL semiconductor separation equipment, as it is vital for the functioning of mobile devices.
Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in this market is the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry that leads to fluctuations in the demand for FEOL semiconductor separation equipment. Moreover, in some cases the production of such equipment tends to exceed its 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.
