Soitec (France) and Shin-Etsu Chemical (Japan) are the Key Players in the Silicon on Insulator (SOI) Market

The Silicon on Insulator (SOI) market is expected to reach USD 1,832.5 million by 2023 from USD 686.0 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 21.7% between 2018 and 2023. The growth of this market is fueled by the increasing use of SOI wafers in consumer electronic devices, effective use of silicon during the manufacture of thin SOI wafers, and low operating voltage and high performance offered by SOI-based devices.

Soitec (France), Shin-Etsu Chemical (Japan), GlobalWafers (Taiwan), SUMCO (Japan), and Simgui (China) are the leading players in the SOI market. Product launches, agreements, partnerships, merger & acquisitions, collaborations, and expansions are some of the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in this market.

Soitec is a key player in the SOI market. Soitec provides license to various companies for selling SOI wafers, e.g., SEH America (Tokyo). Soitec manufactures both thin-film and thick-film SOI wafers under the brand “UNIBOND.” The company invests a large share of its revenue in R&D activities to meet the demand for fine materials from semiconductor manufacturers. Moreover, the company offers competitive solutions to the manufacturers of miniaturized chips to improve performance and reduce energy consumption. These products are used to manufacture chips for consumer electronic devices and mobile electronics in smartphones, automotive applications, Internet of Things (IoT), computer servers, and data centers. The company’s products, RF SOI and Power SOI, have established its place in various markets, including consumer devices and automotive. Growing demand for FD-SOI, imagers, photonics, and 300-mm RF-SOI substrates is expected to create opportunities for the company.
