Silicon on Insulator (SOI) Market

Market Leadership - Silicon on Insulator (SOI) Market

The global silicon on insulator (SOI) market is projected to grow from USD 1.0 billion in 2020 to USD 2.2 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 15.7% from 2020 to 2025. Increased investments in the SOI ecosystem by wafer manufacturers and foundry players and growth in the use of SOI wafers in consumer electronics are key factors driving the growth of the market across the globe.

Key players in the SOI market are focusing on enhancing their product portfolios and increasing their market share through the strategies of product launches and developments, agreements, partnerships, collaborations, acquisitions, joint ventures, and expansions. Several market players have adopted product launches and developments as a key business strategy to enhance their position in the SOI market over the past few years. For instance, in October 2019, GlobalFoundries (US) launched a 22FDX security solution based on FD-SOI to protect cellular IoT devices against physical tampering and damaging. Apart from the strategy of product launches and developments, leading players of the market have also adopted the strategy of agreements & collaborations to expand their businesses. For instance, in February 2020, GlobalWafers Co., Ltd. (Taiwan) and GlobalFoundaries, a leading specialty foundry, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop 300 mm SOI wafers to meet the growing demand for RF-SOI for mobile and 5G applications.
