Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Equipment Market By Equipment Type (Wet Stations, Scrubbers, Single Wafer Processing Equipment), By Operation Type (Rotary Wafer Etching System, Manual Wet Batch System) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2017 -2025

Surface contamination of silicon wafers is among the biggest challenges faced across the semiconductor manufacturing industry. Silicon wafers get contaminated mostly from exposure to the open air, which contains a substantial amount of organic particle impurities. This largely affects the efficiency, performance, and reliability of semiconductor devices. This has been the prime factor responsible for the semiconductor wafer cleaning equipment industry. Wafer cleaning equipment is primarily used for cleaning silicon wafers, write/read heads of hard disc (HD) drives, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), printed circuit boards, photomasks, flat panel displays, and several other compound semiconductor device components.

The semiconductor wafer cleaning equipment market is majorly driven by the ever-rising semiconductor and electronics industries worldwide. Due to the growing penetration of smartphones and tablets, the demand for integrated circuits (IC) has witnessed a paradigm shift over the course of time. In addition, due to the proliferating use of microelectronics across different applications, the development of efficient and small-sized semiconductor devices has become highly essential. The increasing need for high-performance miniaturized electronic devices is expected to continue spurring the demand for related cleaning equipment in the following years.
