The silicon on insulator (SOI) market is estimated to grow from USD 686.0 million by 2018 to USD 1,832.5 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 21.7%. The growth of this market is driven by the increasing use of SOI wafers in consumer electronic devices and low operating voltage and high performance offered by SOI-based devices, and developments in the SOI ecosystem through organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as product launches, agreements, partnerships, merger & acquisitions, collaborations, and expansions.

The market for 300 mm is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Wafer and foundry players expanding their capacity for producing 300-mm wafers is one of the driving factors for the growth of the SOI market. For instance, Soitec expanded its manufacturing capacity for the production of 300-mm SOI wafers.

The market for FD-SOI is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2018–2023. This growth is attributed to advantages offered by FD-SOI compared to bulky silicon technologies, including reduced complexity, the ability to optimize power/performance tradeoffs, lower operating voltage requirements, and improved gain and noise characteristics, which would further help applications of low-power, high-performance portable electronic devices.

Among the applications of SOI, the market for automotive and consumer are expected to grow at the high CAGR during the forecast period. Automotive giants and other business leaders are increasingly investing in ADAS and driverless cars. ADAS and driverless cars require high-speed, low-power, compact electronic devices for their operations. To fulfill this requirement, SOI-based wafers are used. Moreover, increasing demand for FD SOI from consumer and IoT applications is driving the growth of market.

Silicon on Insulator Market

The market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2018–2023. APAC is witnessing an increase in the use of SOI products owing to the presence of a large number of consumer electronic companies, smartphone manufacturers, and wafer and foundry players in APAC. For instance, in 2017, Soitec ramped up to the high-volume production of 200-mm SOI wafers at the manufacturing facility of its Chinese partner Shanghai Simgui Technology Co., Ltd. (Simgui).

Key market players such as Soitec (France), Shin-Etsu Chemical (Japan), GlobalWafers (Taiwan), SUMCO (Japan), Simgui (China), GlobalFoundries (US), STMicroelectronics N.V. (Switzerland), TowerJazz (Israel), NXP Semiconductor N.V. (Netherlands), and Murata Manufacturing (Japan) focus on product launches, agreements, partnerships, merger & acquisitions, collaborations, and expansions to enhance their portfolio of product offerings and expand their business.
