Glass Wafer Market Analysis 

A glass wafer is an extremely slim disc utilized as a base for assembling integrated circuits. It is a slim piece of semiconductor material, typically made of borosilicate glass, quartz, or intertwined silica. Glass wafers are utilized as a transporter substrate in the creation of semiconductor wafers, which are manufactured from more delicate materials that can effortlessly twist or tear. The glass substrate part permits the semiconductor wafer to be dealt with safely even though it is fragile. Glass is picked for its superior thermal and chemical stability, and the chance of reuse can lessen cost. In addition, glass wafer has various kinds of specialty properties. For instance, substance of boron and borosilicate glass gives higher compound stability against water or other various sorts of chemicals. This factor is expected to drive the glass wafer market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • North America, particularly the U.S., has witnessed high number of COVID-19 cases, which resulted in discontinuation of glass wafers manufacturing; other glass segments fabricating area have been affected utilization of glass wafers during the initial quarters of 2020. Moreover, decrease in the general manufacturing activities has prompted to discontinuation of glass equipment producing projects, it has impacted the growth of the glass wafers market.
  • The demand for portable medical equipment, which incorporates patient observing devices has been on the rise owing to the increased usage by health workers across the world during the pandemic. The expanded realization among the customers in the pandemic has expanded the interest for personal monitoring devices, which has prompted a growth in demand for microelectromechanical systems (MEMs). This, therefore, is helping the glass wafer market to recover steadily.

Top Impacting Factors

With the new products offerings and advances, glass wafers are expected to witness demand across different sectors. This factor is anticipated to drive the global glass wafers market. Glass wafers have now progressively been utilized in different industries such as consumer electronics, medical services and biotechnology, automotive, aviation and defense, IT and broadcast communications, and some more. The increase in demand for smaller and compact hardware across the globe has propelled the growth prospects of glass wafers. Glass wafers are used as a transporter substrate in the production of semiconductor wafers which has become a fundamental part of most electronic items such as tablets, mobiles, wearable gadgets, and others. In the automotive business, the glass wafer is the most utilized for the prevention of outside lights, utilized in the mechanized driving framework, and furthermore in the communication system of vehicles.
