Market outlook of semiconductor fabrication materials

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global semiconductor fabrication material market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period. The growth of the global semiconductor industry is the primary growth driver for this market. The rising demand for high-performance devices with improved speed and capacity has positively impacted the demand for silicon, reflective coating, contrast enhancers, edge bead removers, primers or adhesion promoters, specialty solvents, and etchants. Moreover, emerging technologies, such as IoT, M2M, UHD TVs, hybrid laptops, and vehicle automation, are also expected to fuel the demand for semiconductor wafers.

The growing trend of miniaturization of electronic devices is also anticipated to drive the market growth during the forecast period. The advent of advanced systems like MEMS, Nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS), and 3D stacked ICs has led to a demand for finer patterning in semiconductors. This growing need for microfabrication is projected to drive the market for new fabrication materials with improved heat and stress resistance properties.
