Market Trends of Atomic Layer Deposition Equipment Industry

Semiconductors and Electronics Industry to Drive the Market Growth

  • The demand from the semiconductor and electronics industries is anticipated to be the primary driver of atomic layer deposition technology. While the semiconductor industry is expected to impact the technology's development directly, any electronics industry expansion will contribute to its advancement. Consequently, atomic layer deposition equipment is growing in demand.
  • After the global fab capacity expansions that manufacturers announced as a result of the chip shortfall, Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) players are prepared to take advantage of a new growth opportunity. Recently, 300mm ALD platforms have improved to satisfy the requirement of More-than-Moore (MtM) devices and applications for MEMS, sensors, power and RF devices, and photonics. Previously, 200mm ALD platforms were designed to fulfill the market's needs. Now that wafer production has increased in volume, it is anticipated that ALD solutions will expand and join the MtM devices market.
  • ALD rose to prominence in the semiconductor industry due to its use for depositing high-permittivity oxide materials. For example, thermally grown SiO2 was swapped out for HfO2 formed by ALD as the gate dielectric material in conventional metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors. The number of applications requiring the usage of ALD has significantly increased in recent years.
  • The electronics sector has ups and downs in cycles. The short- to medium-term outlook for the electronic industry is positive. By 2024, there will be around 8.9 billion mobile subscriptions, 8.4 billion mobile broadband subscriptions, and 6.2 billion unique mobile users, predicts the Ericsson Mobility Report. This is anticipated to accelerate the development of ALD technology.
  • During the projection period, growth in the sales of consumer electronics and microelectronics is anticipated to drive up demand for semiconductor ICs. The increased demand for semiconductor ICs will raise the manufacturing capabilities of semiconductor device producers, which might increase demand for the atomic layer deposition equipment market.
  • Next-generation semiconductor device production necessitates the deposition of highly conformal (great than 95%) SiO2, SiNx, and SiC films on high aspect-ratio nanostructures at low temperatures (400 °C). Atomic layer deposition is replacing chemical vapor deposition in semiconductor manufacturing, allowing for the development of these Si-based dielectric films. ALD-deposited SiO2 films are already utilized in the production of semiconductor devices.
  • The expansion of RF and power electronics further aids the advancement of ALD technology. Extreme environmental conditions can damage and corrode active components, leading to early failure. These conditions include high temperatures, oxygen, ultraviolet radiation, salinity, and moisture. The performance and dependability of these components can be significantly increased for the same reason, thanks to atomic layer deposition (ALD).

Asia Pacific Expected to Witness the Highest Growth Rate

  • The Asia Pacific continues to be the most critical region for the proliferation of the electronics industry. The Asia Pacific has become a hub of OEMs in the electronics industry. Moreover, emerging economies like Vietnam have invested heavily in this industry, leading to healthy competition among various regional countries. Moreover, established hubs like Taiwan and China continue to invest heavily in R&D, enabling them to stay ahead of the curve in innovations that drive market growth.
  • Atomic layer deposition is commonly utilized in solar cells and devices for conformal coatings. In light of this, the target market is anticipated to develop throughout the projected period due to the increase in demand for solar devices and the rise in the solar industry across various regional countries. Additionally, governments in the APAC region are constantly establishing various investments to increase their solar industry, which drives the demand for ADL solutions.
  • The automobile is another significant sector that uses ALD units and Systems for its manufacturing. Automobile industries are another primary user of thin film, as it is used in practically every aspect of the industry. For example, the thin film can reduce the size and enhance the life of various parts. Thin coatings are used in the automotive sector to save money and the environment. This is done by reducing the weight of commonly used construction elements, enhancing their service life, and, as a result, improving the manufacturing quality of nanomaterials.
  • Asia is the home of some of the biggest manufacturers of automobiles in the world, such as Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Hyundai, TATA Motors, Maruti, etc., with countries like China and India, Japan, and South Korea being the powerhouse of Asian Automobile Sector. Apart from these OEMs, many parts and automobile accessories suppliers also find usage for ALD units and equipment for their manufacturing requirements.
  • A critical approach in producing semiconductor devices is atomic layer deposition, a thin-film deposition process that relies on the use of a gas-phase chemical process. The market's players in this region are heavily investing in research and development programs to improve their outcomes' efficiency and lead the fastest market expansion worldwide.
