About Probe Card

Probe cards are testing equipment used by semiconductor device manufacturers to electronically test the wafer, a semiconductor substrate used for IC chip fabrication. The process of electronically testing the wafer is also known as wafer sorting. The testing of the individual die specifically at the wafer-level has been an essential part of the IC manufacturing process over the past four decades. A probe card is basically a point of connection in between the electronic test equipment and a semiconductor wafer. The probe card is mechanically docked to a prober, which is electronically connected to a tester. The main purpose of a probe card is to provide an electrical path between the test system and the circuit, which is on the wafer. This permits the testing and validation of the circuits at wafer-level, after which they are diced and packaged. The probe card consists of a printed circuit board (PCB) and a metallic element for contact purposes.

The analysts forecast the global probe card market to decline at a CAGR of (4.95%) during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Probe Card Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global probe card market: FORMFACTOR, JAPAN ELECTRONIC MATERIALS, MICRONICS JAPAN, and MPI

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ADVANTEST, Cascade Microtech, KOREA INSTRUMENT, and SV Probe.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increase in number of fabless semiconductor companies. One of the factors driving companies to go fabless is that they will be able to minimize overhead expenses in terms of the operation and maintenance of foundries. The primary focus of semiconductor companies is to improve the design and development processes of products. Hence, manufacturers are outsourcing fabrication and other foundry-related activities to other companies that specialize in the manufacturing, assembly, and testing of semiconductor ICs.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increase in number of fabs. The top firms worldwide are investing in the latest technologies to develop innovative products in terms of reduced size and improved deliverance. This has led to the increased construction of fabs to meet the growing requirements of the firms.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Pressure on pricing strategies of vendors. The cyclicity of the semiconductor industry has always created price pressure for semiconductor manufacturers. A low demand for semiconductors will trigger a reduction in their prices and high demand will lead to an increase in the prices. In case of a reduction in prices, the device manufacturers, which are the customers of the testing equipment, will incur losses to clear up their inventory. Hence, many product manufacturers prefer to use the testing equipment on a lease basis, thus limiting the sales of the equipment. While this helps the product manufacturers to reduce their capital expenditure, it poses considerable challenges to the global probe card market as a reduction in the sales of the testing equipment will affect the demand for probe cards

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.
