Semiconductor device fabrication is the process of developing integrated circuits that are used in electrical and electronic devices. It is a multiple-step sequence of photolithographic and chemical processing steps to develop electronic circuits on a wafer made of pure semiconducting material.
Silicon is the most commonly used material used for manufacturing semiconductors, however other compound semiconductors are used for specialized applications. The complete manufacturing process starting from assembly for electronic components to shipment of packaged chips, takes about six to eight weeks, and is performed in highly specialized facilities known as fabs.
The global semiconductor fabrication material market has witnessed significant growth over the past few years. The semiconductor fabrication material market is expected to witness significant growth in the near future, owing to inclination towards digital integrated circuits (ICs). Moreover, growing demand for CPM slurry in consumer electronic devices has supplemented the market growth. Moreover, increasing demand for 300mm wafers in semiconductors production has fueled the market growth. However, volatile prices of raw materials hamper the growth of the market.
The global semiconductor fabrication material market is segmented based on type, and geography. Based on type, the market is divided into silicon wafers, photomasks, photoresists, wet chemicals, CMP slurry & pads, gases, sputter targets, and photoresist ancillaries. Based on geography, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
