Silicon EPI Wafer Market Looking Lucrative

  • The silicon EPI wafer market is steadily gaining traction, due to growth in the semiconductor industry and increasing need for wafers in consumer electronics.
  • Shifting from homoepitaxy to heteroepitaxy deposition type increases the overall cost of wafer manufacturing.
  • An increase in popularity of IoT in wafers, and growth of smart lighting, especially in Korea and China, is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for market expansion.

Silicon EPI wafer is mainly used in processing semiconductor wafers made from materials such as silicon or epitaxial growth. Its powerful adhesive strength keeps wafers in place when grinding and cutting.

Growing the epitaxial layer on monocrystalline silicon or other wafers includes various types of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) categorized as atmospheric pressure CVD (APCVD) or metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD).

An increase in popularity of IoT in wafers, and growth of smart lighting, especially in Korea and China, is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for market expansion.

The silicon EPI wafer market is steadily gaining traction, due to growth in the semiconductor industry and increasing need for wafers in consumer electronics. In addition, increase in IoT in semiconductors especially in countries such as South Korea, China, and Japan is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the silicon EPI wafer market globally. The silicon EPI wafer market provides numerous growth opportunities to the market players such as Siltronic, Nichia Corporation, Applied Materials, Wafer World Inc., Global Wafer, and others.
