This market research report identifies Applied Materials, Hitachi High-Technologies, Lam Research, Tokyo Electron, and Mattson Technologies as the key vendors in the global dielectric etchers market. This report also presents a detailed analysis of the market by end-user (foundries, IDMs, and OSATs) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global dielectric etchers market

Technavio’s market research report predicts that the global dielectric etchers market will post a revenue of more than USD one billion during the forecast period. The miniaturization of ICs is identified to be one of the primary drivers for the market’s growth. The requirement for miniaturized products in mobile applications and other autonomous systems, is driving the market for electronic devices with enhanced manufacturing methods. Currently, electronic devices utilize semiconductors with circuit line widths ranging from 0-20 nm. However, it is anticipated that the coming years will witness the emergence of ultraminiature circuits with line widths ranging from 0-10 nm memristors and transistors and are deployed over a silicon fabrication chip. These chips are very small and can be integrated into various end-user products. The growing trend of miniaturizing the electronic devices in aerospace and medical sectors will subsequently drive the demand for neuromorphic chips, which will in turn, fuel the demand for dielectric etching for circuit miniaturization.

One of the latest trends that will gain traction in the global dielectric etchers market is the emergence of 3D ICs. With technological advancements, there will be a significant increase in the demand for faster and better-performing chips that do not consume high energy. This will drive the demand for 3D chip stacking. Owing to the demand rising demand for smart and miniaturized electronics, electronic product manufacturers will demand the need for 3D ICs, which will in turn, offer chip manufacturers new opportunities for growth. One of the major chip manufacturers Applied Materials has already introduced a new dielectric etch system called Centura Avatar for creating 3D memory architecture.

Competitive analysis and key vendors

Though the dielectric etchers market has the presence of a very few vendors, it is highly competitive due to the strong position of the existing market players. With technological advancements in the semiconductor industry and the focus of the vendors towards following strategic alliances, the market’s competitive environment will intensify further.
