Status of the Advanced Packaging Industry
Why is advanced packaging a critical enabler of future semiconductor devices? Will Fan-Out take over the market? What is the outlook per advanced packaging platform? Why is there a trend for System-in-Packages? Which technologies are in development? How is the supply chain changing and what business model shifts are under way?

Future semiconductor drivers are expected to be fragmented and more diverse than in the mobile era. An outlook into the future brings the Internet of Things (from end device to backbone infrastructure), including the Industrial Internet of Things, electrification of transport, autonomous driving, 5G connectivity, augmented & virtual reality and artificial intelligence. In such an environment, advanced packaging is transforming from follower of scaling technology nodes to enabler of future semiconductor applications and products. Heterogeneous integration of multiple dies (SiP) from the latest to legacy front-end nodes, involving a mixture of latest technology high density interconnects to lower cost mature interconnects, at high levels of customization is the future of packaging.

Advanced packaging is experiencing a total revenue CAGR 2016-2022 of 7%, higher than the total packaging industry (3-4%) and semiconductor industry (4-5%). The fastest growing advanced packaging platform is Fan-Out with 36% followed by Embedded Die in laminate substrate with 24% and 2.5D/3D TSV with 23%. Fan-Out is expected to exceed 3$B by 2022 while 2.5D/3D TSV high end is expected to exceed 1.7 $B by 2022. Advanced Packages will continue to dominantly address high end logic and memory in computing and telecom, with further penetration in analog and RF in high end consumer/mobile segments, while also pursuing opportunities in growing automotive and industrial segments.

There are several dynamics shaping the advanced packaging market and its evolution. Going forward, two types of roadmaps need to be considered – scaling and functional roadmap. When it comes to scaling, advanced packaging is given the task to enable further packaging of ICS in sub 10nm technology nodes. On the other hand, within the functional roadmap, cost is more of a concern and advanced packages are facing increasing competition from mature wirebonded packaging as well as modified leadframe packages such as fcQFN.

Furthermore, some of the key packaging market dynamics are brought into perspective, such as:
– Impact of longer front end scaling cycles
– Competing platforms and technologies in the scaling roadmap below L/S 10/10 um
     o Package substrate vs. WLP
     o WLP vs. 2.5D/3D
– Transition from Wirebonded to FC packages
– Introduction of panel level packaging
– Impact of QFN on advanced packaging growth

The shifts in the semiconductor supply chain are results of preparations for future uncertainty, and search for other value flows. Top OSATs are progressing further down the WLP road, but some are also strengthening module production in order to cover a wide range of assembly technologies. Furthermore, foundries became OSATs, EMS companies are joining packaging and new OEMs are entering the landscape.

Based on the most recent reports from Yole Développement and latest teardowns from System Plus Consulting, the following webcast give an overview of the field of advanced packaging and provide the latest market and technology developments including the industry drivers, market dynamics, packaging technology evolution, forecasts per packaging platform, analysis of the supply chain (player strategy, production shares) and detailed financial analysis of TOP 25 OSATs.
