Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post-COVID-19 era. The emergence of advanced and compact consumer electronic devices is notably driving the semiconductor silicon wafer market growth, although factors such as high inventory levels in the supply chain may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the semiconductor silicon wafer industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market Driver

One of the key factors driving growth in the semiconductor silicon wafer market is the emergence of advanced and compact consumer electronic devices. Smartphones have replaced feature phones, laptops have replaced PCs, and now tablets are replacing laptops. Light-emitting diode (LED) TVs and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TVs, too, are replacing cathode-ray tube (CRT) TVs. Application developers and manufacturers are trying to incorporate further transformation by interconnecting household devices via a single unit called smart home, which is controlled by applications installed on smartphones. With fast innovation and the rising demand for advanced electronics, manufacturers are focusing on delivering better consumer products with enhanced functionalities. The demand for compact electronic devices in almost all sectors has forced semiconductor IC manufacturers to decrease the size and increase the performance of ICs, leading to the increased demand for silicon wafers.

Key Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market Trend

The continuous decrease of lithography wavelength is another factor supporting the semiconductor silicon wafer market share growth. A photomask is an opaque plate with a precision image of ICs. On exposing the photomasks to ultraviolet light at wavelengths of 365 nm, 248 nm, and 193 nm, an identical image of the design onto the silicon wafers is produced. The ever-decreasing feature size and increase in chip density have increased the complexity of wafers. This has resulted in a steady reduction in lithography wavelength over the years from 365 nm to a now common 193 nm to manufacture a structure lower than 30 nm on the wafer. With the advent of 10 nm node size in 2017, extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography is anticipated to get commercialized for manufacturing ICs. Without EUV, chipmakers will have to use expensive multiple patterning systems to achieve the required feature sizes. Even for the 7-nm node size, which was commercialized by mid-2019, EUV lithography needs to be used. With the growing EUV lithography, the demand for silicon wafers is also increasing.

Key Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market Challenge

The high inventory levels in the supply chain will be a major challenge for the semiconductor silicon wafer market vendors during the forecast period. The semiconductor industry is cyclical in nature, which affects the operating results of the semiconductor vendors due to severe downturns. Semiconductor manufacturers face risks such as overcapacity, decreased demand, and increased price competition. Changes in customer requirements due to new manufacturing capacity and advances in technology affect semiconductor manufacturers considerably. All these factors eventually result in excess inventory, which is a major challenge for the vendors. The global silicon wafers market also favors buyers. Wafer manufacturers are unable to enter into long-term contracts due to oversupply, forcing them to reduce contract volumes to maintain contract prices.

This semiconductor silicon wafer market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.
