The wafer cleaning equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2016 and 2022 and be valued at USD 5.03 Billion by 2022.  A wide range of semiconductor applications uses wafer cleaning equipment such as MEMS, CIS, memory, RF devices, LED, interposers, logic, and others. These equipment clean silicon wafer surfaces and make them suitable for semiconductor applications; this helps electronic products to deliver better workability. Also, the growing application of memory in the smart devices is driving the growth of the overall market.

This market is segmented on the basis of equipment type, wafer size, application, and geography. The equipment include single-wafer spray systems, single-wafer cryogenic systems, batch immersion cleaning systems, batch spray cleaning systems, and scrubbers. Amongst all these equipment, batch spray cleaning systems held the largest market share in 2015 due to its increasing demand in MEMS manufacturing

The market for single-wafer spray systems is expected to grow at a rapid pace. Increasing demand for single-wafer spray systems can be attributed to device miniaturization and complex fabrication steps that require high precision that can only be delivered by single-wafer spray systems.

LED application is expected to grow at the highest rate due to rise in LEDs demand across the globe. The market for LEDs is increasing significantly. The rise in demand for LEDs can be attributed to the growing demand for commercial use of LEDs. The market for 300mm wafers is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. The electronics manufacturers choose 300mm wafers because they offer the ability to manufacture a large number of devices in a single batch.

Currently, the APAC region holds the largest share and is expected to witness the highest growth rate between 2016 and 2022. APAC dominates the wafer cleaning equipment market, owing to low-cost labor in China, innovations and advancements in FABS in Taiwan, and semiconductor equipment manufacturing capabilities in Japan are some of the cutting-edge advantages for Asian semiconductor industries. The governments in many countries in Asia are supporting the semiconductor industry. The increase in foreign investment in the semiconductor industry in the region would also help in market growth. These are the major reasons for APAC being the largest market for wafer cleaning equipment.

Wafer Cleaning Equipment Market

The environmental concerns related to hazardous chemicals is the major restraint for the growth of the wafer cleaning equipment market. For the process of wafer cleaning, several chemicals are required, which is harmful to the environment as well as for human beings. Some of the chemicals used are H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide), HCl (hydrochloric acid), and HF (hydrofluoric acid); these all chemicals are very harmful and dangerous and are to be used with standard precaution. However, many ongoing research and development projects are there to reduce the overall use of harmful chemicals in wafer cleaning that would help to increase the adoption rate in the market.

SCREEN Holdings Co., Ltd., one of the major players, focuses on the development of their product line through the growth strategies such as collaborations and new product launches and developments. In 2016, SCREEN collaborated with IBM Research (U.S.) for the advanced logic process research. Recently, the company also expanded its research and development by collaborating with Imec Technology Forum Japan (Tokyo, Japan); this alliance would focus on cleaning, wet etch, and advanced lithography coat/develop processing. The company is also focusing on the development of its wafer cleaning products. In 2016, the company launched the single-wafer cleaning system SU-3300 and in 2015, SS-80EX—the wafer cleaning system with spin scrubbers.
