A growing electric car market is expected to drive market growth in the forecasted period.

The rapid development in the integration of the semiconductor industry has created a high demand for silicon wafers as a basic material for producing ICs. The exponential growth of consumer electronics products such as smartphones, tablets, and smart wearables are the end products where ICs are assembled. This industry has kept the demand for silicon wafers high. A silicon wafer is a thin slice of crystalline silicon that is mostly used in our electronics products. Its natural abundance and semiconductor properties, such as being neither a very strong conductor nor a very strong insulator of electricity, made it the semiconductor industry's preferred choice for making wafers when compared to competitor semiconductors such as germanium.

Secondly, there is a growing demand for electric cars across the world. Rising gasoline prices and their negative environmental impact have influenced buyers to opt for electric vehicles. Moreover, governments and NGOs are also forcing automobile manufacturers to switch to electric vehicles to reduce air pollution. Governments are also supporting the automotive industry as well as buyers by providing subsidies. Supplementarily, technological advancements in self-driving cars include several chips, such as LiDAR, radar, a camera, and other sensors that can sense the surrounding environment and are assembled into the system. Major automotive companies like Tesla, Toyota, Volvo, Nissan, Baidu, and Google are continually investing in driverless car development, considering the market potential in the long run. The most important components for running an electric or driverless car are silicon wafer-based chips, ICs, and sensors.

This new development in the automotive industry is expected to further the growth of the silicon wafer market during the forecasted period. The global silicon wafer market was worth $6.77 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $12.67 billion by 2027, growing at a 7.3% CAGR from 2019 to 2027.

Market Snapshot

End-user segment analysis

Consumer electronics segment dominating the market

Based on end-user, the consumer electronics segment captured the highest share of the global silicon wafer market in 2018. According to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), a U.S.-based organization representing more than 2,200 consumer technology companies in the United States, consumer sales in the United States will exceed $400 billion in 2019, growing 2.2% year on year. The consumer electronics sector is experiencing the launch of emerging technologies such as smart homes, smart speakers, home robots, and smartwatches. With the introduction of 5G technology, the Internet of Things, and enhanced mobile broadband services, the demand for high-performance RAM ICs is expected to grow exponentially, resulting in high demand for silicon wafers globally. This, in turn, will benefit the global silicon wafer market.

Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific dominating the global market by region

The global silicon wafer market was dominated by Asia Pacific, which accounted for more than 35% of the market share in 2018. Robust demand from the semiconductor industries of China, South Korea, and Japan has kept the region leading in the global market. Furthermore, India's "Make in India" campaign to establish chip fabrication units in the country has also added advantage to the regional market. Silicon wafers are in high demand due to China's growing production of electric vehicles and smartphone manufacturing hubs.

According to the "2018 China Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Outlook report," wafer production growth is the fastest in the world. Further, strong domestic demand and favorable government policies have added advantages to the growth of fabrication units in the country. It is forecasted in the above report that China can produce 4 million wafers per month by 2020.
