By Key Market Players
According to the insights of the CXOs of leading companies, the wafer backgrinding tape market is expected to leverage considerable potential for the semiconductor industry. The current business scenario is witnessing an increase in the demand for integrated chips, microcontrollers, MCUs, particularly in the developing regions such as China, India, and others, due to an increase in government mandates related to investing in semiconductor manufacturing. Companies in this industry are adopting various innovative techniques such as mergers and acquisition activities to strengthen their business position in the competitive matrix.
Wafer backgrinding tapes are mainly used in processing semiconductor wafers made from materials such as silicon or glass. Its powerful adhesive strength keeps wafers in place when grinding and cutting. Once the wafer has been processed, exposing the tape to ultraviolet light (UV) reduces its adhesive strength, making tape peeling, or die pick up simple.
The wafer backgrinding tape market is steadily gaining traction, owing to growth in the semiconductor industry, increase in need for wafer fabrication, and rise in focus toward wafer surface production. In addition, increase in investment in wafer fabrication equipment and materials especially in countries such as South Korea, China, and Japan is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the wafer backgrinding tape market globally. The wafer backgrinding tapes market provides numerous growth opportunities to the market players such as Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd., Mitsui Chemicals, Nitto Denko Corporation, and Denka Company Limited.
