The global semiconductor production equipment market was estimated at USD 63 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach over USD 142.4 billion by 2030 with a remarkable CAGR of 9.5% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The market for semiconductor manufacturing equipment is predicted to grow as consumer electronics demand grows. The rising demand for semiconductor chips from producers of consumer electronics, medical gadgets, and sensor systems is propelling the semiconductor industry forward. The rise of the middle class, changing lifestyle tastes, and a growing desire to use smart electronic devices have all contributed to the growth of consumer electronics in recent years. This indicates that over the projection period, the market for semiconductor manufacturing equipment will rise at a rapid pace.
Furthermore, during the projection period, the semiconductor sector is expected to increase at a CAGR of above 5%. This is attributed to a rise in both mobile and consumer electronic device sales. Over the projection period, emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), connected gadgets, ultra-high-definition (UHD) televisions, automotive automation, and hybrid laptops will continue to fuel demand for semiconductor wafers. Market analysts predict that demand for semiconductor wafers would rise significantly throughout the forecast period, particularly in the automotive and industrial sectors.
Other growth-promoting elements include the use of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and the integration of connected devices with the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT-enabled silicon-based sensors are being used in production equipment by electronics makers to provide remote monitoring capabilities for complex circuit boards. Other factors, such as the growing trend of device downsizing and intensive research and development (R&D) efforts, are expected to propel the growth of Semiconductor Production Equipment market even more. For instance, On 12th September 2021, Lam Research has announced that in December 2021, it will establish a new 45,000 square foot plant in Sherwood, Oregon, to increase its manufacturing footprint in the state. This new site will provide chipmakers with the crucial instruments needed to produce chips that power sophisticated electronic devices. Lam is one of the world's top providers of semiconductor fabrication equipment. The new plant is Lam's fifth in the United States, and it will strengthen the company's resilience and ability to satisfy growing customer demand as chipmakers attempt to scale up production globally.
Based on the Product, in 2020, the front-end semiconductor production equipment category accounted for more than 60% of sales and is expected to expand at CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period.
Several high-end capabilities given by lithography front-end equipment credited with the industry's growth, as they support semiconductor volume/mass manufacturing. These lithography systems are expensive pieces of equipment, costing up to USD 150 million per unit. The producers and providers of semiconductor production equipment benefit from substantial profit margins. Foundry firms and IDMs are the primary drivers of lithography-based semiconductor production equipment demand.
Based on the Dimension, the Semiconductor Production Equipment Market is divided 2D, 2.5D and 3D. Because of the rising use of 2.5D packaging architecture in stacked memory modules, the 2.5D sector hit 35% market share in 2020 and is expected to grow at an annual rate of 8.2% until 2030. 2.5D design achieves greater chip functions, broader bandwidth, and improved memory performance in stacked semiconductor memory. To be competitive in the industry, market leaders place a strong emphasis on replacing traditional 2D architecture with 2.5D layered architecture. The expansion of the semiconductor manufacturing equipment sector will be aided by increased development of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) products.
