Semiconductor Etch Equipment Market Research, 2031

The global semiconductor etch equipment market size was valued at $20.5 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $46.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2022 to 2031. Semiconductor etch equipment is a device used to remove selective materials from the surface of the silicon wafer substrate by using the wet etching method or dry etching method. The wet etch method use chemical to remove the selective material from the silicon wafer substrate. The dry etch method use plasma ion to remove the selective material from the silicon wafer substrate. The etching process removes the material from the surface of the semiconductor to create patterns according to its applications.

Semiconductor etch equipment is a device used to remove selective materials from the surface of the silicon wafer substrate by using the wet etching method or dry etching method. The wet etch method use chemical to remove the selective material from the silicon wafer substrate. The dry etch method use plasma ion to remove the selective material from the silicon wafer substrate. The etching process removes the material from the surface of the semiconductor to create patterns according to its applications.

Rapid growth of the semiconductor industry is major driver of the market. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment is one of the most important requirements in the global electronics industry. Researchers from the U.S. Army are developing a new method of incorporating Silicon Carbide (SiC)-powered semiconductors into modern weaponry and equipment. Moreover, increase in demand for electronics devices by the consumers drives the demand for chips, which in turn is expected to boost the demand for semiconductor etch equipment indirectly throughout the projected period.

Increase in demand for hybrid circuits in medical equipment, owing to increase in patients is propelling the demand for semiconductor chips. For instance, the United Nations estimates that the geriatric population in the region, aged 60 years and older, could reach around 806.55 million, by 2024. Changing consumer electronics demand is expected to fuel the market for electric circuit boards, which will in turn drive the demand for semiconductor etch equipment. Such instances are expected to positively influence the semiconductor etch equipment market growth.

Fluctuation in raw material prices is expected to slow down market growth. The semiconductor etching system is majorly made from raw materials such as metal, silicon, and other. From past few years, price of these raw materials has been fluctuating, owing to a range of economic and speculative aspects. Government-led stringent laws, tariffs, and regulations against deforestation, metals, and other materials used in semiconductor etching systems have declining revenues and profits of manufacturers to a substantial extent. Thus, all such factors are expected to hinder the growth of the market.

Furthermore, during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the construction, manufacturing, and electronic industries were majorly affected. Manufacturing activities were halted or restricted. Manufacturing and transportation activities, along with their supply chains, were hampered on a global level. This led to decline in manufacturing of semiconductor as well as their demand in the market, thereby restraining the growth of the semiconductor etch equipment market. Conversely, industries are gradually resuming their regular manufacturing and services. This is expected to lead to the re-initiation of semiconductor etch equipment companies at their full-scale capacities, which is likely to help the semiconductor etch equipment industry to recover.

This is attributed the rising government attention and investments in semiconductor industry is expected to drive the semiconductor etch equipment market. For instance, the Chinese government is focusing on assisting the chip industry and has budgeted over USD 150 billion in investments by 2030 to push semiconductor production. Such factors are expected to increase the demand for semiconductors, which in turn, is anticipated to boost the demand for semiconductor etch equipment.
