Semiconductor Inspection System Market Research, 2031

The global semiconductor inspection system market size was valued at $5.2 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $8.9 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2031.

Inspection is important in controlling the semiconductor manufacturing process. The entire manufacturing process for semiconductor wafers involves 400-600 steps and takes 1-2 months. If an error occurs early in the process, all the work in the time-consuming steps that follow will be wasted. Therefore, inspection processes are set at critical points in the semiconductor manufacturing process to ensure and maintain specific yields.

Semiconductor inspection system equipment defect review, analysis, and classify the means to monitor and control the quality of individual steps in the semiconductor manufacturing sequence. The semiconductor inspection system market is growing owing to the expansion of the semiconductor industry in countries such as China, U.S. Japan, and Taiwan. Further, the increase in demand for electronic products such as smartphones, wearables, laptop, computers, television, and others are creating lucrative opportunities for the semiconductor inspection system market growth. Moreover, growth in demand for hybrid circuits from medical, military, photonics, and wireless electronics applications is propelling the semiconductor inspection system market opportunity. However, fluctuation in raw material prices is expected to hinder market growth.

Moreover, nations such as China, South Korea, U.S., and India are witnessing an increase in investments in semiconductors manufacturing industries. For instance, in June 2022, the Indian government announced that India will spend $30 billion to restructure its IT industry and build up a semiconductor supply chain. According to Gourangalal Das, director-general of the India-Taipei Association. The investment initiative is aimed to boost local production of semiconductors, displays, advanced chemicals, networking and telecom equipment, as well as batteries and electronics. All such factors are fueling the semiconductor inspection system market growth.

Major players have adopted various strategies such as product launches and acquisitions to sustain the competition and improve the product portfolio. For instance, in April 2022, ASML Holdings N.V. launched HMI eScan 1100, the first multiple e-beam (multibeam) wafer inspection system for in-line yield enhancement applications, including voltage contrast defect inspection and physical defect inspection.

Semiconductor Inspection System Market

The semiconductor inspection system market is segmented into TYPE, Technology and End-User. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into wafer inspection systems, and mask inspection systems. On the basis of technology, the market is divided into optical and E-beam. On the basis of end-user, the market is divided into integrated device manufacturers (IDM), foundry, and memory manufacturers. Region-wise, the global market analysis is conducted across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Semiconductor Inspection System Market by Type

On the basis of type, the wafer inspection system segment generated the highest revenue in 2021, owing to it being aimed at finding the position coordinates of defects (X, Y). One of the causes of defects is the adhesion of dust or particles. It is therefore not possible to predict where defects will occur. it is a process for detecting any particles or defects in a wafer. It allows engineers to quickly detect, resolve and monitor excursions to provide greater control of quality for improved device performance.

Semiconductor Inspection System Market by Technology

On the basis of technology, the optical segment accounted for the highest revenue in the global market in 2021. The technology is commonly used in the production line, as it is faster and is being stretched to the advanced nodes limit. Optical technology is used for tool and line monitoring in fabrication.

Semiconductor Inspection System Market by Region
