Dielectric Etchers Market Analysis

The Global Dielectric Etchers Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period 2022 to 2027. The increasing demand for miniaturizing the ICs to be used in compact & mobile devices is expected to drive the market. The current electronic devices use semiconductors of circuit line width, which ranges from 5 - 20 nm; however, the emergence of atomic-level etching process & demand for miniaturized IC, which consumes less power, will push the circuit line width range to 0 - 10 nm.

  • An increase in demand for neuromorphic chips will drive the market for etchers. The rising demand for artificial intelligence, data processing & analytics is a major factor influencing the innovation & adoption of neuromorphic chips across the globe. Etch techniques aid in creating chip features by eliminating coatings and materials put on the wafer selectively. These procedures entail producing increasingly small and intricate features with difficult-to-remove material combinations.
  • The latest trend in the global dielectric etchers market is the emergence of 3D ICs. With the increasing demand for faster computing devices that consume less amount of energy will significantly drive the demand for 3D chip stacking. The growing need for miniaturizing electronic devices in fields such as Aerospace, Automotive & Medical sectors will drive the demand for dielectric etchers, which are capable of altering structures to a precision of 0 - 10 nm & even at an atomic level.
  • Etch methods also produce tall, high-aspect-ratio features, like through-silicon vias (TSVs), which allow chip packaging and micro-electromechanical system integration (MEMS). For instance, Lam Research plasma etch systems provide high-performance and high-productivity capabilities required to build precise structures, ranging from tall and narrow, short and wide, to a few angstroms in size.
  • In May 2021, Applied Materials, Inc. announced three new materials engineering solutions that enable its memory customers three new options to scale DRAM and optimize chip performance, power, area, cost, and time to market (PPACt). DRAM manufacturers use black diamond, a low-k dielectric material developed by Applied Materials, to solve logic interconnect scalability problems.
  • The outbreak of COVID-19 significantly disrupted the supply chain and production during the initial phase of 2020. The impact was more severe for semiconductor manufacturers, the major end users for semiconductor etch equipment. Due to labor shortages, many players in the semiconductor supply chain had to reduce or even suspend their operations. The industry was riddled with a high deficit and increasing demand, which led to a significant supply chain gap. The initial spread of the virus led to the shutting down or reduction of foundry capacity utilization, fearing the decreasing demand for chips across major sectors, like the automotive. Diminished output led to a global shortage of semiconductors as demand increased, despite the initial estimates by semiconductor foundries.
