Thin Wafer Market Dynamics

Driver: Reducing sizes of electronic devices

As electronic devices shrink in size, it creates a requirement for thin ICs. The increasing demand from portable devices for products such as memory, chips, ICs, and RF devices is expected to drive the growth of the thin wafer market. Earlier, the thickness of a mobile phone was around 15–20 mm; however, with technological advancements, it has decreased. Presently, the thickness of a smartphone ranges between 6 mm and 9 mm. Also, other electronic devices such as laptops, tablets, and audio devices have either reduced in thickness or size. The increasing demand for wearables and other portable smart products creates the need for thin wafers, thereby driving market growth.

Restraint: Efficiency maintenance-major issue for thin wafers

Currently, efficiency is the main issue faced by companies in adopting thin wafers. A thin wafer has a low light absorption capacity for long wavelengths, especially if the thickness is below 50 ìm. The distance traveled by the light to be completely absorbed by the wafer is long, in the case long wavelengths. The primary motive behind developing a thin wafer is to ensure that chip manufacturers have the advantage of all the benefits of thin wafers, such as low power consumption, high performance, and smaller die area.

Opportunity: Growing adoption of IoT and AI in automotive sector

The advent of Industry 4.0 and technologies such as IoT and AI in the automotive sector will contribute significantly toward the growth of the thin wafer market. The increased demand for vehicle connectivity will encourage new developments in the industry. Also, with ongoing trends such as touch-free human–machine interfaces revolutionizing the automotive sector, there is a growing significance of connected cars. According to a report published by the IoT Analytics Research in 2022, the number of IoT connections is projected to reach 27.0 billion globally by 2025. Integration of IoT in automotive safety and communication technologies is one of the major reasons for the growth of IoT connections in the future. The introduction of technologies such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), adaptive cruise control, and intelligent parking assistance systems will further drive the market growth. These systems integrate large number of electronic systems which are fabricated using thin wafers, which aid in high performance and smooth functioning of these in-car systems.

Challenge: Volatality and Susceptibility to damage caused by pressure or stress

Thin wafers are volatile and susceptible to damage in the case of pressure or stress. A thin wafer is highly flexible and faces breakage issues even due to little pressure or stress. Dies made from thin wafers can easily break during the internal process of wafer thinning. Companies operating in the thin wafer market are working toward overcoming this challenge by developing support systems to handle a thin wafer through various processes such as wafer bonding and debonding. Also, companies are using a high-quality adhesive in the carrier which handles the thin wafer.
