Semiconductor dry strip equipment refers to specialized machinery used in the semiconductor manufacturing process to remove unwanted materials or layers from the surface of semiconductor wafers. It employs a dry or plasma-based process, typically using reactive gases, to selectively etch and remove contaminants, photoresist, oxides, or other films from the wafer surface, ensuring the purity and quality of the semiconductor substrate before subsequent processing steps.

Various collaboration and technological advancements are happening in the market for instance in March 2023, SK a prominent provider of semiconductor photoresist cleaning equipment, launched a localized dry bevel etcher named “Bevel Etcher.” This new technology was developed by SK, drawing on their extensive experience in dry strip equipment. The objective behind introducing the Bevel Etcher is to improve semiconductor productivity by enabling accurate control over the etching process at the wafer edge.

Based on its type, the semiconductor dry strip equipment market is divided into element semiconductor and compound semiconductor. Element semiconductors, particularly silicon-based semiconductors, have traditionally dominated the semiconductor market due to their widespread use in integrated circuits and microelectronics. Element semiconductors are composed of a single chemical element, such as silicon (Si) or germanium (Ge). These materials are commonly used in the production of integrated circuits (ICs) and other semiconductor devices. While compound semiconductors are composed of two or more elements and offer unique properties that make them suitable for specific applications, such as high-frequency devices, optoelectronics, and power electronics.

Based on its application, the semiconductor dry strip equipment market is fragmented into Consumer electronics, automotives, Industrial and others. Growth and demand in each sector vary based on technological advancements and industry-specific needs but the consumer electronics and automotive sectors have historically shown rapid growth and strong demand for semiconductors. The consumer electronics rely on semiconductors for devices like smartphones and laptops, while the automotive sector uses them for electric vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems. Industrial applications involve semiconductors in automation and control systems, while the “others” category includes healthcare, aerospace, telecommunications, and emerging technologies.

Based on geography, the region of North America especially United States, holds a significant position in the semiconductor dry strip equipment market. The region is home to major semiconductor manufacturers like Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm. North America’s technological leadership in advanced memory, 5G, and AI fuels the demand for specialized dry strip equipment to handle complex structures and meet high-performance standards.
