Reduction in the size of various electronic devices and electrical components is one of the major factors that are driving the demand for thin wafers. Rising number of smartphone users across the globe is majorly boosting the demand for these wafer type in order to minimize the thickness of the devices being manufactured. Expanding global semiconductor industry coupled with increasing awareness regarding the technology will propel the growth of thin wafers market in the coming years.
Growing IC (integrated circuit) industry and rising demand for portable devices will further augment the demand for thin wafers. By size, 300 mm thin wafer will experience a significant market growth as it enables the manufacturing of a large number of devices in a single batch, thereby impacting the global thin wafer market positively. Geographically, APAC region is anticipated to witness the fastest growth of thin wafer market during the forecast period.
Factors such as growing semiconductor industry, rapid industrialization, and high demand for various consumer electronics, particularly smartphones and tablets will lead to this regional market growth. However, inefficient maintenance and delay in supply of thin wafers due to manufacturing defects will restrain the growth of global thin wafer market during the forecast period.
