The global silicon on insulator market size reached US$ 1.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.1 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 14.4% during 2023-2028.
Silicon on insulator (SOI) refers to a microchip or semiconductor device manufacturing technique, wherein engineers place thin films of single-crystalline silicon on top of an insulator for streamlining the fabrication of integrated circuits (IC). It aids in reducing junction capacitance, resulting in higher speed, eliminating charge leakage, and optimizing the performance of SOI-based devices, while ensuring minimal power consumption. On account of these properties, they are extensively used for producing various consumer electronics, microprocessors, radio frequency (RF) signal processors, biotechnological chips, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). At present, it is commercially available in fully and partially depleted silicon on insulator types.
Silicon on Insulator Market Trends:
One of the major factors driving the SOI market is the significant expansion in the electronics sector, along with the increasing demand for high-performance microelectronic and consumer electronic devices, including smartphones, notebooks, digital cameras, and desktops. In line with this, the incorporation of fully depleted silicon on insulators (FD-SOI) in various automobile solutions, such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and semi-autonomous driving systems, due to their thermos-mechanical robustness, operational safety, low-power consumption, and long-term reliability properties are acting as other major growth-inducing factors. Additionally, significant technological advancements, such as the large-scale integration of radio frequency silicon on insulator (RF-SOI) wafers into smartphones to hold cellular signals and receive an uninterrupted connection from multiple locations, are contributing to the market growth. Moreover, the rising need for low-power and affordable semiconductors and integrated circuits (IC) has facilitated the widespread adoption of SOI amongst the integrated device manufacturer (IDM) community, which is further propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as continuous investments in research and development (R&D) activities and frequent mergers and acquisitions (M&A) amongst key players to progress integrated circuit (IC) technology, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
