As a result, they find extensive applications in various industries such as automotive, electronics, and robotics.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the expanding electronics industry as semiconductors are widely utilized in consumer electronics, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. In addition, the increasing demand for hybrid and electronic vehicles (H/EVs) represents another major growth-inducing factor. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment is used to assemble multiple semiconductors on a single chip to reduce electronic interference and provide enhanced protection to electronic devices. Besides this, several key players are introducing advanced product variants to expand their customer base. For instance, Applied Materials, Inc., a manufacturing company based in the US, launched Actionable Insight Accelerator (Alx), a platform that accelerates the manufacturing and production of new chip technologies. This, coupled with various technological advancements, such as the utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions and the integration of connected devices with the Internet of Things (IoT), are positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the emerging trend of device miniaturization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities are some of the other factors anticipated to propel the market growth in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 145.32 Billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
