COVID-19 Impact on the Global Silicon on Insulator Market

The outbreak and the spread of the COVID-19 had a negative effect on the SOI market in 2020, resulting in decreased shipments of SOI. This resulted in the declined revenues generated from them. As a result, a dip was witnessed in the growth trend of the market during the first half of 2020. This trend continued to prevail till the first quarter of 2021. The demand for SOI is expected to surge as the production volume and the demand from consumer electronics, automotive, datacom & telecom, industrial, and military, defense, and aerospace applications, is expected to increase in the first or second quarter of 2022.

Market Dynamics:

Driver: Surging Adoption of AI and ML in consumer electronics

SOI wafers display great potential in consumer electronics. In recent years, with the introduction of new innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), the consumer electronics industry is leading the pack by incorporating these technologies into its products. For organizations that want to improve their customer experience, including AI and ML into their operations enables them to explore new growth options. These tech-powered disruptive technologies have found their way into all consumer electronic goods. Conventional devices such as smartphones, TVs, laptops, cameras, and speakers are all gaining acceptance, but voice-enabled devices, smart wearables, and smart TVs are gaining the most traction. The consumer electronics segment is getting a reboot and can witness fantastic developments like never before by adopting and exploiting AI and ML.

SOI wafers are the best materials for manufacturing devices for AI, ML, and several other wireless applications. Moreover, AI and ML are also deployed by SOI wafer manufacturing companies to increase production and produce wafers with improved quality. Also, through a machine learning process, AI makes electronic devices intelligent so that they can make judgments like a human brain based on information collected via sensors. By 2030, data processing at the edge, which currently accounts for only a small percentage of the total data handled, will account for ~45% of all data processed, lowering latency and boosting security. Edge computing and cloud AI are both crucial, and the adoption of both is expected to significantly increase. AI is likely to become a part of nearly every application and electrical device and will be a primary driver in the next generation of semiconductors.

Restraint: Reduced breakdown voltage, floating body, and self-heating effects in SOI wafer-based devices

Even though an SOI wafer has several advantages, it still is not preferred for use in various applications. The main reason is the reduced breakdown voltage, floating body, and self-heating effects in SOI wafer-based devices. Reduced breakdown voltage levels severely limit the maximum supply voltage at which SOI wafer based-circuits and devices can operate. When the parasitic device turns on, the SOI wafer-based transistor cannot be switched off by changing the gate bias.

In SOI wafer-based devices, the body terminal is either tied to the gate or left free for floating called a floating body. The floating body is supposed to reduce power consumption and improve device efficiency. However, the floating body effect acts as a major parasitic effect in SOI-MOSFETs and is a consequence of the complete isolation of the transistor from the substrate. The effect is related to the built-up of a positive charge in the silicon body of the transistor, originating from the holes created by impact ionization. This charge cannot be removed rapidly enough, primarily because no contact with the Si film (body) is available.

Moreover, in SOI wafer-based devices, an active thin silicon body is placed on silicon oxide, which is a good thermal insulator. During the operations of these devices, the power consumed by this active thin body is not dissipated easily and causes an increase in its temperature. This increase in the temperature of the thin active body decreases the mobility and current in SOI wafer-based devices, which may damage or reduce their overall performance. Thus, the reduced breakdown voltage, floating body, and self-heating effects in SOI wafer-based devices are limiting the market growth.

Opportunity: Rising adoption pf SOI wafer-based device in automotive

Rising investments in ADAS and driverless cars have provided immense growth opportunities for chip manufacturers in the automotive segment. The automotive segment has witnessed a significant growth rate in the worldwide chip market. Recent advances in the automotive market, along with emerging features, and the increasing use of sensors are providing fuel for the continued growth in the SOI market. For instance, ADAS and driverless cars require high-speed, low-power, compact electronic devices for their operations. Hence, SOI wafers are used to fulfill such requirements. SOI wafer has the potential to combine high-voltage and low-voltage components on a single chip, saving space and money, simplifying designs and models, and enhancing performance, lowering development costs, and speeding up time to market. SOI also provides innovative new methods to well-established technologies such as IoT, AI, and ML. Moreover, FD-SOI semiconductor technology enables the scalability of planar semiconductor devices with unique body-bias capability. FD-SOI technology offers the best energy efficiency, highest performance of integrated RF, and superior reliability ICs for automotive applications.

Challenge: Shortage of semiconductor chips at global level

Companies all across the world are struggling to meet increased demand for a wide range of electronic goods and components, due to a global shortage of semiconductor chips. Semiconductor chips are the crucial components in any electronic product. While chips themselves are tough, designed to withstand high temperatures, vibrations, and other external shocks, the worldwide semiconductor supply chain is vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters.

The COVID-19 pandemic had already put tremendous strain on supply chains, particularly for consumer goods such as laptops, video game consoles, and smartphones, forcing people across the world to find new ways to work and play. Moreover, the automotive industry's faster-than-expected recovery from factory closures, when companies canceled chip orders after incorrectly forecasting lower demand for the rest of the year due to the pandemic sent semiconductor supply into a downward spiral, causing a shortage of tiny electronics across a wide range of industries. Also, the scarcity has been compounded by the double booking of chip purchasers eager to acquire inventory, which is caused by supply chain instability brought on by the US-China trade conflict.

The study involved four major activities in estimating the size of the SOI market. Exhaustive secondary research has been carried out to collect information on the market, the peer markets, and the parent market. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches have been employed to estimate the total market size. Market breakdown and data triangulation methods have also been used to estimate the market for segments and subsegments.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various sources have been referred to for identifying and collecting information for this study on the SOI market. Secondary sources considered for this research study include government sources; corporate filings (such as annual reports, investor presentations, and financial statements); and trade, business, and professional associations. Secondary data has been collected and analyzed to arrive at the overall market size, which has been further validated through primary research.

Secondary research has been mainly used to obtain key information about the supply chain of the SOI ecosystem to identify the key players based on their products, as well as to identify the prevailing industry trends in the SOI market based on instrument, sampling technique, application, and region. It also includes information about the key developments undertaken from both market and technology-oriented perspectives.

Primary Research

Extensive primary research has been conducted after understanding and analyzing the current scenario of the SOI market through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with key opinion leaders from both the demand and supply sides across three major regions: North America, Europe, and APAC. Approximately 25% of the primary interviews have been conducted with the demand side, while 75% have been conducted with the supply side. This primary data has been collected mainly through telephonic interviews, which account for 80% of the total primary interviews. Questionnaires and e-mails have also been used to collect data.

After interacting with industry experts, brief sessions were conducted with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primaries. This, along with the in-house subject matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report. The breakdown of primary respondents is as follows:
