About Epi Wafer

Epitaxy is the process of depositing a crystalline layer over a crystalline-based semiconductor substrate or surface. Epitaxial devices comprise nanolayers of semiconductor crystals that are uniformly deposited on deposition tools to form an epi-wafer. Combining different semiconductor materials and dopants in an epi wafer helps determine the performance capabilities of photonics and radio-frequency (RF) semiconductor components.

The analysts forecast the global Epi wafer market to grow at a CAGR of 11.65% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Epi Wafer Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global Epi wafer market: EpiWorks, GlobalWafers, Nichia, and SHOWA DENKO K.K.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Century Epitech, Desert Silicon, ELECTRONICS AND MATERIALS, Intelligent Epitaxy Technology, IQE, Jenoptik, MOSPEC Semiconductor, Norstel, OMMIC, Roditi, Silicon Valley Microelectronics, SVT Associates, University Wafers, Wafer Works, Xiamen Powerway Advanced Material, and Visual Photonics Epitaxy.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in market is increase in number of fabless semiconductor companies and M&As. One of the main reasons for semiconductor companies going fabless is to minimize the overheads expenses in terms of operations and maintenance of foundries. Most semiconductor companies prefer to focus more on the design and development of their solutions. Therefore, they outsource their fabrication and other foundry-related activities to companies that provide such foundry solutions. Thus, the ratio of foundries and fabless companies is 1:11 in the global semiconductor market. Furthermore, due to high cost, companies merge with or acquire other companies to increase their production facility and market share. For instance, in 2015, Micron acquired Taiwan’s Inotera Memories and Nanya Technology, to increase its DRAM production capacity.”

According to the report, one driver in market is epitaxial deposition improves performance of devices. The deposition of an epitaxial layer on the wafer has grown since the year 2000. This is because the deposition helps enhance the performance of the devices such as transistors and ICs. The deposited layers are designed to have various compositional and electrical properties from the underlying wafer, which can be adjusted as per requirements of devices such as transistors and ICs. The thorough inspection of the epitaxial layer makes it free of imperfections, reducing device failure and adding reliability at the time of fabrication. For instance, the addition of an epitaxial layer on a transistor raises its breakdown voltage and increases the transistors switching speed. This layer adds to the cost of device manufacturing; however, the overall benefits are much larger due to performance and functional improvements. The same performance and functional improvements apply for DRAM devices and CMOS ICs.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is need for thorough inspection of epitaxial film surface. In the epitaxial deposition, the thin-layered film requires to be inspected at regular phases. The deposited layer is inspected thrice first under bright lights, then using an optical microscope, and finally by a surface scanning laser defect counter. These devices help determine the presence of any impurities such as particles, spikes, scratches, pits, and haze. The bright light is used to reflect the surface of the epitaxial wafers; any deviation from a highly smooth and reflective surface is observed in this reflection. The optical microscope can magnify very small defects (75-200X) to view stacking faults and pyramidal defects. The laser scanner is used to double check and quantify the remaining defects on the deposited epitaxial surface. This inspection process is complicated and time consuming; hence, affects the time-to-market of the end-products such as IC chips. Thus, this acts as a challenge, as manufacturers need to ensure timely delivery.

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.
