Epitaxial Wafer Market Outlook - 2027

An epitaxial wafer is an exotic semiconducting material, which is created by epitaxial growth for utilization in microelectronics, photovoltaics, and photonics. Epitaxial wafers are utilized as a high purity layer to form thick dopes. In addition, epitaxial wafers are used in many applications such as smart phones, LEDs, gyroscopes, laptops, tablets, and gaming consoles. As epitaxial wafers are elementary building blocks for semiconductors, they play a vital role in the manufacture of several semiconductor components. Epitaxial wafers can grow high purity silicon by epitaxy than silicon in substrates, which makes epitaxial materials better. The global epitaxial wafer market is experiencing a significant growth, and is expected to grow considerably in next few years.

Implementation of epitaxial wafers provides numerous advantages such as epitaxial wafers provide electronic engineers a way to control doping profiles not achievable through other traditional means such as diffusion or ion implantation. Secondly, physical and chemical features of epitaxial wafers can be created differently from bulk materials. Epitaxial wafers can create a high purity silicon by epitaxy than silicon in the substrate, which makes epitaxial materials a better material.

COVID-19 scenario Analysis: 

  • Global epitaxial wafer market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. New projects throughout the world have stalled, which, in turn, have led to a significant decline in demand for these systems.
  • Global factories have struggled to integrate new epitaxial wafers as workers have stayed in their homes, which has disrupted the global supply chains.
  • The impact of COVID-19 on this market is temporary as just the production and supply chain is stalled. Once the situation improves, production, supply chains, and demand for these embedded systems are gradually going to increase.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Increase in demand for epitaxial wafer in consumer electronics, application of GPS, rise in trend of wafers in automotive and semiconductor industries drive growth of the epitaxial wafer market globally. Increase in overall cost of manufacturing epitaxial wafers due to increase in shift from homoepitaxy to heteroepitaxy deposition type hampers growth of the epitaxial wafer market. However, increase in adoption of epitaxial wafer technology in portable electronics as they provide highly efficient and reliable electrical interconnect solutions for electronic products is anticipated to increase demand for epitaxial wafer during the forecast period.

The global epitaxial wafer market trends are as follows:

Rise in use of epitaxial wafers in the automotive industry 

Epitaxial wafers help in increasing efficiency and precision through automation, which makes them an intrinsic part of production process of the automotive industry. Wafers are used in automotive industry’s production process to track and control temperature, pressure, flow, and level through robots. In addition, contribution from autonomous vehicles, electric vehicles, and self-driving trucks is expected to play an important role in the increase of automotive industry’s production rate hence, creating a lot of opportunities for growth of the epitaxial wafer market across the globe.

Asia-Pacific is expected to growth at the highest CAGR

There is going to be an increase in demand for epitaxial wafers to increase electrical properties of electronic products. Rapid growth of the electronic industry in India and China is one of the major factors leading to growth of the epitaxial wafer market in Asia-Pacific, in terms of highest CAGR during the forecast period.
