Semiconductor Wafer, By Process (BEOL, FEOL), by Application (Consumer Electronics, IT, Healthcare, BFSI, Telecom, Automotive)- Forecast 2018-2022

Market Overview

The latest report by Market Research Future (MRFR) states that the global semiconductor wafer market is predicted to reach an impressive market value of USD 40 billion by 2022, registering a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period (2016-2022). The wafer refers to the narrow part of semiconductor material, which are available in the form of silicon, as silicon is the most common element that makes use of semiconductor. Semiconductor wafers exist in the form of integrated circuit as well as in various electronic devices.

At present, almost every electronic equipment has been created using the semiconductor appliances, be it smartphones, or laptops, tablets, or wearable devices. This has led to more demand for the semiconductor wafer market. The market owes its tremendous growth to factors like the growing use of semiconductors in numerous industry verticals like consumer electronics, automotive, medical as well as military. Silicon wafer is utilized as a substrate when semiconductor components are fabricated, for instance as integrated circuits (ICs). Accelerated demand for wireless communication devices like smartphones and tablets will render the market highly lucrative in the coming years.
