About Semiconductor Silicon Wafer
A silicon wafer is a semiconductor material used as a substrate for the fabrication of semiconductor components such as semiconductor ICs. Semiconductor components undergo several microfabrication steps including ion implantation, etching, deposition of various materials, and photolithographic patterning. The last step involves microcircuits being separated from the silicon wafers through dicing.

The analysts forecast the global semiconductor silicon wafer market to grow at a CAGR of 0.94% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: – Global Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global semiconductor silicon wafer market: Shin-Etsu Chemical, Siltronic, SUMCO, and SunEdison Semiconductor.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: LG Siltron, Silicon Materials, Virginia Semiconductor, and Wafer World.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is continuous decrease of lithography wavelength. A photomask is an opaque plate with a precision image of ICs. On exposing the photomasks to ultraviolet light at wavelengths of 365 nm, 248 nm, and 193 nm, an identical image of the design on to the silicon wafers is produced. The ever-decreasing feature size and increase in chip density has increased the complexity of wafers.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is emergence of advanced and compact consumer electronic devices. Consumer electronic devices have witnessed a massive transformation in the last five years. Smartphones have replaced feature phones, laptops have replaced PCs, and now tablets are replacing laptops. LED TVs and OLED TVs too are replacing CRT TVs.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high inventory levels in the supply chain. The semiconductor industry is cyclical in nature, which affects the operating results of the semiconductor vendors due to severe downturns. Semiconductor manufacturers face risks such as overcapacity, decreased demand, and increased price competition. Changes in customer requirements due to new manufacturing capacity and advances in technology affect the semiconductor manufacturers considerably.

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.
