Semiconductor Lead Frame Market size worth US$4.462 billion by 2029

Semiconductor Lead Frame Market

The semiconductor lead frame market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 4.99%, with the market size anticipated to increase from US$3.174 billion in 2022 to US$4.462 billion in 2029.

A semiconductor lead frame is a structure made of metal that supports and connects the integrated circuit (IC), discrete devices, and other components in semiconductor devices. The lead frame helps in establishing a passage for the flow of electrical signals between the IC and the peripheral environment.

Increasing demand for electronic devices and decreasing size of electronic components which in turn increase the efficiency of electronic devices helps in propelling the demand for semiconductor lead frames.

As per the report, the semiconductor lead frame market is expected to grow at a significant pace.

The growing usage of sophisticated packaging technologies, such as wire bonding, is among the key drivers that are driving the semiconductor lead frame market. Improving the efficiency of wire bonding technology is expected to increase demand in the semiconductor industry.

According to data from the U.S. Department of Energy, LED lighting, especially energy star-rated products, consumes 75% less energy and lasts up to 25 times longer than incandescent lighting. It is anticipated that by 2035, energy saving due to LED lighting could reach 569 TWh.

Furthermore, LED lighting has various applications in the automotive industry in the form of headlights, warning lights, indicators, and displays these applications contribute to the growing demand for lead frames.

Stamping technology is a process in which metal sheets are pressed against a die to reshape them in the desired pattern or shape. It is a quick and cost-effective method used to make large numbers of lead frames quickly and effectively, therefore this technology is widely used in the making of lead frames for electronic devices like smartphones. Thus, the increasing demand for smartphones is expected to boost the use of stamping technology which will further help the semiconductor lead frame market to expand.

Stamping technology is extensively used in making semiconductor lead frames because this technology helps in making frames that are small in size thus reduction of the size of frames helps in increasing the efficiency of electronic devices.

Many product launches and developments are taking place in the semiconductor lead frame market during the forecast period. For instance, in February 2024, Toppan Photomask, one of the world’s leading semiconductor photomask makers, collaborated with IBM to research and develop 2-nanometer logic semiconductor nodes through extreme UV lithography.

Under this collaboration both the companies agreed to develop a high-NA EUV photomask. The photomask research and development is done at Albany NanoTech Complex in the USA and Toppan Photomask’s Asaka Plant, Japan.

Asia Pacific region is anticipated to hold the majority of shares of the semiconductor lead frame market. Demand for semiconductors in the region is growing due to the expansion of the manufacturing industry and increase in sales of electric vehicles this further propels the market of semiconductor lead frame.

According to the data from the China Semiconductor Industry Association (CSIA), the sales revenue of China’s semiconductor industry was RMB 1.2 trillion Yuan which is equivalent to US$ 180.4 billion. As per the report, the IC design industry holds a 43% share of the total sales revenue.

The global semiconductor lead frame market, based on different technology is categorized into- chemical etching and stamping. Chemical etching is a process in which component designs are printed onto photoresist which are further laminated into metal sheets. It is a very cost-effective process used in profiling, shaping, and enhancing the precision of products. This process can be used on any type of metal sheet irrespective of sheet hardness.

Stamping is a process in which metal sheets are placed under a die which further reshapes the sheet into the shape of a die by applying pressure on it. The stamping method is used for molding metal sheets but it can also be used on other materials like polystyrene. Stamping is performed with the help of automated machines in which the die is fitted and instructions are given to the attached computer thus all the metal sheets that pass through the die are reshaped into the shape of the die.

The global semiconductor lead frame market, based on different applications is categorized into- integrated circuits, discrete devices, and others. Integrated circuits (ICs) are chips that are made from silicon. It consists of various small parts like transistors which are placed within the silicon and connected with the interconnected layers on the top of the silicon surface. ICs have vast applications like cars, computers, mobile, and video games. It functions as a microprocessor or a memory device.

Discrete devices are electronic components that contain only one circuit element. It performs only a single function such as diodes or transistors. Discrete semiconductors are sometimes made to perform functions similar to two different devices which are attached through a certain configuration. Some of the discrete semiconductors are thyristors, zener diodes, bipolar transistors, and bridge rectifiers.
