Silicon wafers are vital components used in the manufacture of various semiconductor components. A silicon wafer is essentially a very thin slice of semiconductor which is then used to create circuits and electronic devices such as integrated circuits, sensors, MEMS, solar cells and so on. Silicon wafer is made from a silicon ingot.

One of the main factors driving the overall semiconductor industry is consolidation. The growing demand for technologically advanced devices is furthering the growth of the silicon wafer market. This is owing to the fact that they are small in size, consume lesser power, light in weight, among several other benefits. These attributes makes silicon wafers suitable for use in a myriad of devices ranging from mobile phones and tablets to electronic components used in automobiles and medical equipment.

Silicon wafers can be made to have different dimensions. Currently silicon wafers are manufactured to have a diameter of 300mm and below. There is a need for increasing the diameter of silicon wafers to 450 mm. However, this would require a sizeable amount of investment and is one of the factors challenging the growth of this market. Some of the products available in the market include epitaxial wafers, polished wafers and non-polished wafers. The availability of alternatives to silicon wafers is another factor that could potentially impact this market. Increasing cost of raw materials required for the manufacture of silicon wafers are driving manufacturers towards reclaim technologies.

This extremely mature and established market with continue to witness growth throughout the forecast period.
