The report also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the top vendors in the market, including Applied Materials and Lam Research.

Market outlook of the global semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market

Semiconductor dielectric etching equipment is used for etching dielectric materials in the semiconductor manufacturing process. The growth rate of the semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market has been fluctuating and is highly dependent on the global semiconductor market, and on the increasing demand from semiconductor manufacturers who are expanding their production capacity. Thus, due to these factors, the overall market is expected to decline at a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period.

Nevertheless, the increasing demand for smart devices such as smartphones and tablets is one of the factors, which is expected to drive the market growth. The penetration rate of smartphones in developed regions such as North America, Western Europe, China, and Japan is around 80 percent of the population. The rising shipments of smart devices is projected to foster the demand for semiconductor devices such as flat panel display screens and NAND flash memory, which are integral parts of smartphones.

Geographical segmentation of the global semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market

The APAC region has been dominating the semiconductor dielectric etching equipment market, accounting for a share of more than 65% in 2015. The existence of major semiconductor device manufactures in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan is the key reason for the major revenue contribution.
