The basic building blocks of almost all the electronic devices are components like semiconductor wafers, ICs, MEMS, memory devices (HDDs), PCBs, etc. The overall performance of the electronic device depends on the performance of individual components. Moreover, as these components are comparatively small, contaminants affect their performance and reliability in a big way. Hence, microelectronics cleaning is a crucial step as regards the functioning of any electronic device and the cleaning equipment market is one of the most important markets of the semiconductor industry.

Microelectronics cleaning equipment are used to clean silicon wafers, compound semiconductor device wafers, MEMS, flat panel displays, read/write heads of hard disk drives, photomasks, and printed circuit boards. The major application of microelectronics cleaning equipment is in the IC fabrication industry, where a big percentage of the fabrication process involves cleaning the wafers.

The cleaning of microelectronics involves many different challenges like removal and neutralization of the effects of multiple kinds of contaminants, defects, etc. and hence various technologies are used in the process. This includes wet chemical cleaning, dry cleaning, aqueous cleaning, and cryogenic aerosol and supercritical fluid cleaning. These cleaning technologies can be used in equipment that process wafers one-by-one, called single-wafer cleaning equipment, or in groups simultaneously, called batch-wafer cleaning.

By geography, APAC is the leading manufacturer of electronic devices with Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, etc. leading the charts. In accordance with this, APAC is also the major contributor to the microelectronics cleaning equipment industry. North America has had a stable semiconductor device market for over the last five years with a small growth rate. This is expected to continue in the next five years as well.

The major drivers of the microelectronics cleaning equipment market include increasing demand for smartphones and tablets, growth in the semiconductor industry, and shift to single-wafer processing. The explosive growth in the smartphone and tablet market has boosted the demand for more semiconductor wafers and hence more microelectronics cleaning equipment. The performance-driven IC market has forced the transition to single-wafer processing and this is another big driver.

This report segregates the overall microelectronics cleaning equipment market into various application areas such as ICs, photomasks, PCBs, MEMS, FPDs, HDDs, and others. One of the major drivers for this market is the increasing demand for smartphones and tablets.

This report deals with all the driving factors, restraints, and opportunities for the biometric technology market, which are helpful in identifying trends and key success factors for the industry. The report also profiles companies active in the field of microelectronics cleaning equipment. This report provides the competitive landscape of the players, which covers key growth strategies; followed by all the major players. It also highlights the winning imperatives and burning issues pertaining to the microelectronics cleaning equipment industry.

Depending upon the product and process concerned, different factors may have a damaging influence on a microelectronic device, e.g.:

  1. Particles, in microelectronics such as the semiconductor industry
  2. Molecular contamination (outgassing), especially in microelectronics such as the semiconductor industry
  3. Electrostatic discharge phenomena (ESD), especially in microelectronics such as the semiconductor industry
  4. Dust particles in microelectronics of industries such as flat panel displays and hard disk drives
  5. Contaminants and defectivity in microelectronic industries like MEMS, photomasks and printed circuit boards

The following factors may be responsible for contamination:

  1. The cleanroom itself: Staff, although this is becoming less relevant as more and more staff are banned from working in critical areas,
  2. The use of manufacturing equipment, which is increasing as more and more automated solutions are being implemented.
  3. Often in direct contact with the product, manufacturing equipment and the materials used in their construction form a further important contamination factor in a clean production environment.

The need for microelectronics cleaning arose in the 1950s when it was discovered that the reliability and performance of microelectronic devices was related to how clean the wafers were during fabrication. This created the need for the early mechanical and chemical cleaning methods.

Microelectronics cleaning equipment are used to clean silicon wafers, compound semiconductor device wafers, flat panel displays, HDDs, MEMS, photomasks, and printed circuit boards.
The cleaning of microelectronics involves many different challenges like removal and neutralizing the effects of multiple kinds of contaminants, defects, etc. and hence various technologies are used in the process. This includes wet chemical cleaning, dry cleaning, aqueous cleaning, and cryogenic aerosol and supercritical fluid cleaning. These cleaning technologies can be used in equipment that process wafers one-by-one, called single-wafer cleaning equipment, or in groups simultaneously, called batch-wafer cleaning.

This report describes the market trends, drivers, and challenges of the microelectronics cleaning equipment market and forecasts the market to 2017, based on applications, technology, equipment, and geography. This report covers geographies like North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW (Rest of the World).

The major companies involved in wafer cleaning market are Dainippon Screen Mfg. Co., Ltd. (Japan), Tokyo Electron Ltd. (Japan), and Akrion Systems LLC (U.S.), Lam Research Corp. (U.S.), FSI International, Inc. (U.S.), etc.
