Press Release

Market Research Future published a research report on “Silicon Wafers Market Research Report- Global Forecast 2022” – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast to 2022.

Global Silicon Wafers Market   – Overview

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 micro fabrication 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.

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.

A shift from multi to monocrystalline silicon has been evident in the wafer market throughout 2016, as new manufacturing technologies and market developments have brought down the cost of mono, allowing its efficiency advantage to come into play. “During the past couple of years growth in wafer capacity has largely been supported by the increase of monocrystalline wafer, which has grown at twice the rate of multi in terms of relative growth. The main factors for this are technology improvements and the price decline, which has narrowed the gap in average selling price between mono and multi.
