growing at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2022 to 2028. Over the past few years, the consumer electronics industry has continued to grow and evolve. The adoption of electronic devices is increasing due to increasing disposable income, changing technologies and improved internet access.
New York, Sept. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “Semiconductor Metrology and Inspection Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Type, Technology, and Organization Size” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06295699/?utm_source=GNW
Consumer electronics includes computers, mobile phones, headphones, smart watches, smartphones, washing machines and air conditioners.
Additionally, smart home devices have seen unprecedented growth rates over the past few years. The increase in demand for consumer electronics is a key driver of the growing demand for semiconductors.
Various countries are adopting measures to reduce their dependence on other countries for the supply of semiconductors. So they are making policies to boost their internal semiconductor industry.
In September 2021, the United States agreed to help Mexico boost the latter’s semiconductor production. This decision should help the United States reduce its dependence on China. Similarly, in February 2022, the European Union (EU) announced the Chips Act, through which it aims to boost semiconductor production in the region. With renewed interest in semiconductor production, the demand for semiconductor metrology and inspection equipment is expected to strengthen in the coming years. Hence, all these factors are expected to drive the semiconductor metrology and inspection market over the forecast period.
Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the growth of the semiconductor metrology and inspection market
In Asia-Pacific, the largest manufacturer and consumer of semiconductors, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe disruption. China, being the largest manufacturer of electronic devices, has been badly affected as most countries have closed their borders and shipments have been delayed or canceled.
Similar situations have been observed in Taiwan and South Korea. The pandemic and containment measures have hampered the supply chain and resulted in a huge backlog of orders among major players in the semiconductor metrology and inspection market, which has negatively impacted growth of the semiconductor metrology and inspection market.
However, this scenario drastically changed after the third quarter of 2020. Due to the global shortage of semiconductors, semiconductor manufacturers were forced to look for alternative measures to optimize their resource utilization.
Therefore, they have started adopting advanced metrology and inspection equipment to reduce the waste of raw materials. This has greatly boosted the market size of semiconductor metrology and inspection. Moreover, the shortage of semiconductors has crippled several economies, which depended heavily on them. These countries have started to develop laws and provide incentives to boost their domestic production of semiconductors. So, after the third quarter of 2020, market players witnessed a huge increase in the demand for semiconductor metrology and inspection equipment. ASML Holding NV has seen nearly 78% annual growth for its metrology and inspection segment from 2020 to 2021. Similar growth rates have also been observed for several other players in the metrology and inspection market semiconductors. Therefore, although the pandemic led to reduced revenue generation in early 2020, the semiconductor metrology and inspection market was positively impacted due to the pandemic.
According to the Semiconductor Metrology and Inspection Market Research, China accounts for the largest share in Asia-Pacific due to the country’s strong electronics and semiconductor manufacturing base. The country is the leading producer of consumer electronics, electric vehicles and industrial electronic components.
Moreover, China is the largest consumer of semiconductors in the world. A few of the country’s semiconductor giants are HiSilicon, SMIC, OmniVision, UNISOC, ZTE, and Nexperia.
Moreover, Chinese government initiatives, including Made in China 2025, are expected to strengthen the country’s autonomy in semiconductor manufacturing. All these factors are expected to boost the revenue generation for the semiconductor metrology and inspection market players in the country, over the forecast period.
The adoption of artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning and big data analytics is continuously increasing in various applications in aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, military and defense, which propelled demand for semiconductors. Such applications require complex semiconductors in a compact form.
Reducing feature size results in high accuracy, precision, sensitivity, and throughput demands. Special requirements, combined with the increased diversity and rapid evolution of advanced packaging (AP) processes, propel the demand for flexible measurement and inspection systems capable of controlling a wide range of parameters, including geometries two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D), and can be adapted to new requirements as they arise.
Combining various skills into one platform is the most economical and efficient use of capital. Keeping up with the industry roadmap requires new solutions from equipment vendors focusing on the unique requirements of AP operations.
For example, in advanced wafer-level packaging (AWLP) applications, such as 3D ICs and high-density broadcast, KLA Corporation offers the Kronos 1190 patterned wafer inspection system with high-resolution optics. The system gives sensitivity to defects important for process development and production monitoring. The above mentioned factors are driving the growth of the global semiconductor metrology and inspection market.
Few of the key players considered while studying Semiconductor Metrology and Inspection market are KLA Corporation; ASML Holding SA; Applied Materials, Inc.; On Innovation, Inc.; and Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation.
The global semiconductor metrology and inspection market size has been derived using primary and secondary sources. To begin the research process, extensive secondary research was conducted using internal and external sources to obtain qualitative and quantitative information related to the market.
The process also serves to obtain an overview and forecast of the size of the Semiconductor Metrology and Inspection market with respect to all market segments. Additionally, several primary interviews were conducted with participants and industry commentators to validate the data and gain more analytical insights.
Participants in this process include vice presidents, business development managers, market intelligence managers, national sales managers, as well as external consultants such as valuation experts, research analysts and key opinion leaders, specializing in the semiconductor metrology and inspection market.
