Overview of the global semiconductor production equipment market
Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global semiconductor production equipment market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of about 7% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the increasing demand for hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles as one of the primary growth factors for this market. With the increasing focus of several countries across the globe toward a greener environment and the introduction of advanced electric cars by major manufacturers such as Tesla Motors, the demand for electric and hybrid vehicles is increasing steadily. Since hybrid electric vehicles demand for more semiconductor content compared to a traditional vehicle, the demand for electric vehicles will boost the growth of the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market. Furthermore, the growing demand for hybrid electric vehicles will induce more companies to focus on manufacturing hybrid electric vehicles. Consequently, this demand will boost the need for customized semiconductor manufacturing machines, driving the semiconductor production equipment market growth.
The continuous trend of decreasing the size and increasing the density of semiconductor chips has increased the complexity of wafers, which, in turn, has led to a constant reduction in lithography wavelength. The further decrease in node size will make photomasks and wafers more complex, which will consequently propel the need for new semiconductor manufacturing equipment during the predicted period.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The market is characterized by the presence of a large number of vendors and appears to be highly fragmented. The market is currently witnessing the entry of a number of major semiconductor equipment manufacturers following M&A strategies for enhancing their global reach and improving revenue shares. The small- and medium-sized manufacturers find it difficult to compete with the large semiconductor equipment companies and focus on niche markets that are ignored by the leading manufacturers. The production equipment's design and system requirements are dependent on the demands of the chip manufacturer. As a result, semiconductor equipment manufacturers have the need to maintain excellent relationships with the semiconductor companies to sustain the competitive environment and increase their profit margins.
The leading vendors in the market are -
The other prominent vendors in the market are ADVANTEST, ASM International, Contrel Technology, CSUN MFG., Gallant Precision Machining, Hitachi High-Technologies, Hitachi Kokusai Electric, KENMEC MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, Mirle Automation, Nikon, SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions, Usun Technology, and Teradyne.
