Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market

APAC was the leading market for semiconductor manufacturing equipment in 2016. APAC has been a game changer for the semiconductor equipment market for the last 45 years. The growth of Silicon Valley in California from the 1970s is mainly attributed to the support it has received from the players of APAC. The development of semiconductor devices in Asian economies such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan drives the semiconductor equipment market. The semiconductor manufacturing equipment market in APAC held the largest share owing to the low-cost labor in China, Taiwanese innovation and advancement in fabrication plants, and Japanese semiconductor equipment manufacturing capabilities, which are some of the cutting-edge advantages for the Asian semiconductor industry.

Semiconductor manufacturing devices are expensive depending upon its function, and for the process, it is used. New companies entering this industry face the cost hurdle because R&D cost and capital requirement are high. As operations performed by tools used in front-end wafer fabrication are complex, their cost becomes high. For instance, photolithography is one of the most complex processes. Recently in 2015, ASML Holdings (Netherlands) received an order for 15 EUV lithography systems from Intel Corporation (US), and this order was worth USD 75 million. Sometimes, it becomes difficult to maintain older parts of machines, as they are no longer produced by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Thus, the equipment is often used beyond its lifespan. The unavailability of parts of older systems and difficulties in the maintenance of the equipment become constraints to the semiconductor device manufacturers in high-volume production.

Applied Material (US) holds a leading position in the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market, and it is a recognized brand in the semiconductor manufacturing equipment market and is also a global provider of material engineering solutions used to virtually produce chips and advanced displays. The company has developed innovative products to cater to a large number of customers by combining its expertise in semiconductor front-end processes such as etching, chemical–mechanical, and metrology. The company mainly focuses on collaboration and product launches to stay ahead in the competition. For instance, in July 2016, the company launched PROVision system that delivers 3 times faster throughput for challenging e-beam applications. The company also concentrates on R&D to expand its capabilities to provide innovative products and technologies to its customers.
