Market overview of the wafer inspection equipment market
Wafer inspection equipment is a fab equipment used for the inspection of wafers during the process of semiconductor wafer production to find out defects. This equipment is also used for R&D purposes. There is an increasing demand for the application of semiconductor ICs in segments such as consumer electronics, automobiles, and industrial sector that is prompting the vendors to raise its production, which will increase the demand for wafer inspection equipment.

The growth in semiconductor market and the increasing complexity in the design of ICs will drive the market for the semiconductor wafer inspection equipment market. Thus, the global wafer inspection equipment market is expected to witness a remarkable growth, posting a CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period. Also, the emergence of new and innovative technologies such as IoT, M2M, UHD TVs, hybrid laptops, and vehicle automation are fuelling the demand for semiconductor ICs, which will thus produce the demand for semiconductor wafers.

Segmentation by product and analysis of - patterned wafer and unpatterned wafer
As of 2014, the patterned wafer inspection market dominated the wafer inspection equipment market, accounting for over 87% of the total market. The market for unpatterned wafer inspection equipment is small when compared to patterned wafer inspection market because these equipment can only detect defects on only bare silicon surface, hence the dominance of the patterned wafer inspection market.

This report offers an analysis of each of the following segments and discusses its impact on the overall market growth -
- Patterned wafer
- Unpatterned wafer

Geographical segmentation and analysis of - APAC, North America, and Europe
The APAC region was the largest contributor to the overall market accounting for more than 70% in 2014 and will continue to dominate this market during the forecast period. The main reason behind the market growth in this region is the presence of large foundries in countries like China, Taiwan, and South Korea. APAC is more likely to be followed by the North America and Europe.

This report offers an analysis of each of the following segments and discusses its impact on the overall market growth -
- APAC
- North America
- Europe
