The term ‘Silicon on Insulator’ was first introduced by IBM in August 1998. The potential benefits from technologies associated with the Silicon on Insulator (SOI) lies in the intersection of multiple capabilities. With new technological inventions and its seamless integration in our day to day lives, it is evident that the Silicon on Insulator concept has already laid down the foundation for a promising future.

Developments in semiconductor devices have necessitated greater performance from silicon-substrate semiconductors. This has led to the development of the Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology, which improves the semiconductor performance by reducing the capacitance between different layers. While the SOI market is expected to show a huge growth due to the increasing demand for semiconductors, there is still a considerable scope for development as SOI is new compared to the silicon substrate semiconductor technology.

The SOI technology effectively addresses a major concern involved in designing semiconductor devices-reduced power consumption. The SOI technology also offers the benefits of high performance, low parasitic junction capacitance, better temperature sensitivity, and reduction in leakage. The SOI technology is robust and can sustain high temperature environment. This facilitates its use in extreme environment applications such as automobiles. The low power consumption feature makes it highly useful for use in consumer electronics such as computers, video games, and mobile phones. Increasing the consumer awareness and reducing wafer costs are further fuelling market growth.
The market for SOI devices and components is thus expected to show tremendous growth in the next five years. The SOI technology is gaining high popularity in the semiconductor industry due to their benefits of low power consumption and junction capacitance. The SOI market is increasing due to the growth in markets such as consumer electronics and gaming, which use SOI. The adoption of SOI in various applications can be increased by increasing awareness of this technology. Geographically, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to have the maximum potential for growth.

China, Japan, and India have a huge demand for consumer electronics and in turn drive the SOI market. Europe is the leader in the SOI technology.
