Semiconductor Wafers Producers and Semiconductor Wafers Market Trend

Date : 2022-01-12 Reading : 314
Semiconductor wafers are the key basic material for the production of RF chips, sensors, analog chips, discrete devices, power devices, and other semiconductor products. The semiconductor silicon materials industry is technology-intensive, and the production technology involves the integrated use of knowledge from multiple disciplines such as thermodynamics, solid-state physics, semiconductor physics, chemistry, and computer simulation/simulation. The main production process is the drawing of silicon single crystals, followed by wire cutting, chamfering, grinding, etching, backside treatment, annealing, thin-film deposition growth, intermediate testing, edge polishing, polishing, cleaning, testing, and other steps, and finally processed into silicon polished wafers. Silicon wafers are currently the mainstream material used to manufacture semiconductor devices because of their mature technology, stable cost, and wide range of applications.

The global semiconductor wafer market size was $8.7 billion in 2017, growing to $13.5 billion in 2022, with a CAGR of 9.2% from 2017 to 2022. The global semiconductor wafer market is expected to reach $19.6 billion in 2027, with a CAGR of 7.7% from 2022 to 2027.
The global
semiconductor wafer market is highly concentrated, and CR5 is 86.5%. The major producers include Shin-Etsu Chemical, SUMCO, Global Wafers, Silitronic, and SK Siltron.
Semiconductor wafers are the most important raw material for silicon substrates. Semiconductor devices produced on silicon substrates are used in consumer electronics, automotive, industrial and medical. The following is the global semiconductor wafer application market share in 2021.
