Global E-Beam Wafer Inspection System Market to Grow at 17.8% During 2024-2032, Bolstered by Development of Multi-Electron Beam Technology

September 10, 2020 | Electronics and Semiconductors

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “E-Beam Wafer Inspection System Market Report by Resolution (Less than 1 nm, 1 nm to 10 nm, More than 10 nm), Application (Defect Imaging, Lithographic Qualification, Bare Wafer OQC/IQC, Wafer Dispositioning, Reticle Quality Inspection, Inspector Recipe Optimization), End Use (Communication Devices, Consumer Electronic Equipments, Automotive Parts, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” finds that the global e-beam wafer inspection system market reached a value of US$ 759.9 Million in 2023. An electron or e-beam wafer inspection system is designed to detect and report the smallest defects in structures that other platforms cannot routinely capture. In this system, an electron beam is irradiated onto the surface of the wafer, and the emitted secondary electrons and backscattered electrons are detected. It is used for localizing defects or abnormalities on the surface of the semiconductor wafer for fabricating integrated circuits (ICs). Nowadays, e-beam wafer inspection technology is gaining momentum as it has become challenging to discover minute defects at advanced nodes using traditional methods in critical areas of the fab production.

Global E-Beam Wafer Inspection System Market Trends:

The yield-limiting defects in semiconductor wafers need to be identified at the early stage in the manufacturing flow to ensure profitability and production efficiency. As a result, wafer defect inspection has emerged as a crucial step in the semiconductor manufacturing process. This technique is widely used for manufacturing consumer electronics and compact gadgets such as smartphones, laptops and tablets. Besides this, with rapid digitalization and the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies, the e-beam wafer inspection systems are employing deep learning algorithms. They discriminate key digital object identifiers (DOIs) from pattern and process noise, enabling the capture and classification of critical defects during the research and development (R&D) process. Moreover, multi-beam e-beam inspection has replaced optical inspection as it helps reduce the cost assessment for each node. Looking forward, the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17.8% during (2024-2032).
