semiconductor dry etch systems market

The semiconductor dry etch systems market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.93%, with the market size anticipated to increase from US$15.718 billion in 2022 to US$22.019 billion in 2029.

The market for semiconductor dry etch systems is anticipated to be driven by factors such as the growing demand for advanced electronic devices that will need innovative and efficient semiconductors fabricated using the semiconductor dry etch systems. Also, the growth is prominent in the market due to advancements in semiconductor fabrication techniques which has significantly improved the device efficiency and reliability.

As per the report, the semiconductor dry etch system market is expected to grow significantly.

The semiconductor dry etch systems are used for fabricating the semiconductors during their production process which are further used to pattern thin films of deposited materials on them. These dry etch systems use several etching techniques such as DRIE or deep reactive ion etching and RIE reactive ion etching to fabricate the semiconductor devices and provide more efficient smooth functioning to the end-use industries of semiconductors when integrated into their devices. The growth in applications for semiconductors is directly proportional to the growth in the demand for semiconductor dry etch systems as these are necessary to complete the production process for semiconductors and to meet the rapidly growing demand of semiconductors the production process for the must be smooth and efficient that can be done using several etching techniques. For instance, in Apr 2023, to boost the production capacity of etching systems for its semiconductor manufacturing equipment business, Hitachi High-Tech Corporation announced that it would build a new production facility in the Kasado Area of Kudamatsu City, Yamaguchi Prefecture. Production is expected to start in FY2025.

There is a significant rise in applications for semiconductors across the globe in several different end-use industries including consumer electronics and the automotive industry, especially in the EV or electric vehicle segment. To meet this demand the production process should be proficient for the semiconductors which can be achieved by using the techniques of semiconductor dry etch systems that make the process smooth and efficient. The demand for smartphones has seen significant growth in recent times with high-speed networks like 5G technology and growth in GDP globally that has enabled people to have disposable income that can be spent on expensive consumer electronics like smartphones and laptops. Also, the growing popularity of electric vehicles globally is impacting the market positively as they also need semiconductors to complete the production process of electric components of the vehicle and with government promoting EVs across the globe due to their eco-friendly features the demand for semiconductors will grow proportionally that is expected to positively impact the semiconductor dry etch systems market.

The semiconductor dry etch system market can be divided into two types: dielectric etching and conductor etching. Conductor etching is predicted to contribute significantly to the semiconductor dry etch systems market growth when compared to the dielectric etching products that are also prevalent in the market but not so much when compared to conductor etching. The complex layers and patterns found in semiconductor devices that use insulating elements like silicon dioxide and silicon nitride are removed through the dielectric etching process. Hence, the different types of semiconductors dry etch systems available in the market are predicted to propel growth in the market.

Based on application, the semiconductor dry etches systems are segmented into logic & foundry, MEMS, sensors, power devices, and others. The logic & foundry segment is predicted to increase at an exponential rate in the market. Several semiconductor devices including integrated circuits, memory chips, and microprocessors are used for different types of electronic devices such as smartphones and laptops that cater to each product’s needs that are different, hence, these devices are part of logic and foundry applications which are driving the demand for semiconductor dry etch systems. Therefore, the wide variety of applications for semiconductor dry etch systems is anticipated to propel growth in the market.

The market for semiconductor dry etch systems is expected to show prominent growth in the Asia-Pacific region because the need for accurate and effective etching techniques has increased due to the widespread use of electronic devices and developments in semiconductor technology with the rise in population and growth in economies and GDP in countries like Japan, India, and China in the region. The region’s market is expanding as a result of the emergence of major players in the semiconductor manufacturing industry, including China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. Several leading semiconductor manufacturers in the industry are present in the Asia Pacific region, hence, the market for consumer electronics is growing rapidly with the growth in population in the Asia Pacific region with the highest populated countries present such as India and China. Also, the research and development investments made through private organizations or by government grants are rising and with them, the need for semiconductor production to be higher to meet the rising global demand is growing proportionally which are all contributing reasons for this rise in demand for semiconductor dry etch systems. Therefore, these factors are contributing to grow the semiconductor dry etch systems market in the Asia Pacific region over the forecast period.

The market for semiconductor dry etch systems is supported by key players such as Toppan Inc., Applied Materials Inc., Hitachi High Technologies America, Inc., Lam Research Corporation, Tokyo Electron Limited, Plasma-Therm LLC, CVD Equipment Corporation, SPTS Technologies Ltd., Panasonic Industry Co., Ltd., DISCO Corporation.
