Epitaxy equipment market blows up, pushed by VCSEL & disruptive LED devices
“The epitaxy growth equipment market for “More than Moore” devices was worth close to US$990 million in 2019,”announces Amandine Pizzagalli, Technology & Market Analyst, Semiconductor Manufacturing at Yole Développement (Yole). “And it is expected to reach more than US$6 billion by 2025 in the aggressive scenario.”
From a technical point of view, MOCVD services the majority of the III-V compound semiconductor epitaxy industry, such as GaAs and GaN based devices. High-Temperature (HT) CVD serves the majority of mainstream silicon-based components and SiC devices…
The new Yole’s technology & market report, Epitaxy Growth Equipment for More Than Moore Devices includes the overall silicon and non-silicon based applications. It offers a comprehensive overview of epitaxial semiconductor substrates used in “More than Moore” applications and related equipment. This analysis presents the technology trends with a wafer market forecast. Yole’s analysts highlight in its new report, the epitaxy growth equipment market trends with detailed forecasts by volume and value. In addition the competitive landscape and major epitaxy equipment suppliers’ market share are part of this report. The semiconductor industry has been traditionally dominated by silicon substrates. Although silicon is by far the most dominant today with more than 80% market share, alternative non-silicon-based substrates like GaAs, GaN, SiC and InP are gaining momentum within the “More than Moore” industry. Indeed new applications emerge along with stringent requirements where silicon solutions are not able to provide expected performances. As a consequences, innovative substrate materials have been considered by semiconductor players.
