Wafer Processing Equipment Market Research, 2031

The global wafer processing equipment market size was $8.5 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $14.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2031. The global wafer processing equipment market is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. Wafer, also known as substrate, is a thin slice of semiconductor, such as a crystalline silicon germanium and gallium arsenide. A semiconductor is a material with moderate electricity conducting properties. It also has properties such as variable resistance, easy current flow in one direction than the other, and sensitivity to light and heat. These properties make it useful for amplification, switching, and energy conservation. The semiconductors first need to be converted into thin wafers, which can be used in fabrication of integrated circuits, in photovoltaics, to manufacture solar cells. Thus, the importance of wafer in microelecronic devices is the key driver in the growth of the market. Wafers are extensively used in computers, smartphones, laptops, and even in microelectronic devices such as sensors, which ensure the rapid growth of the market throughout the forecast period.

These equipment are used to convert semiconductors such as crystalline silicon germanium, and gallium arsenide into thin round slices, which can be used as a substrate for microelectronic devices. The process includes activities such as formation, texturing, cleaning, dicing and etching. The texturing of wafers is done as per the application of the wafer. For instance, rough textures are created on wafers to be used for solar cells. The increasing use of electronics, has exponentially raised the demand for wafers, which ensures substantial growth of the wafer processing equipment industry throughout the forecast period.

However, tariff disruption due to trade war between the U.S. and China resulted in decrease of the electronic industry market share in North American regions that is limiting the growth of the market.

In addition, during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, construction, manufacturing, hotel, and tourism industries were majorly affected. Manufacturing activities were halted or restricted. This led to decline in manufacturing of various equipment used for wafer processing equipment as well as their demand in the market, thereby restraining the growth of the wafer processing equipment market. Conversely, industries are gradually resuming their regular manufacturing and services. This is expected to lead to re-initiation of the manufacturing companies at their full-scale capacities, that helped the wafer processing equipment market to recover by end of 2021.
