Home > Press > Thin Layer Deposition Equipment Market to Reach $22.4 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Abstract:
Demand for Thin Layer Deposition Equipment is derived from the demand for semiconductors, medical devices/consumables, cutting and metal forming tools, storage media and flexible packages, which largely depend on the consumer and industrial spending. Hence, in times of economic turbulence, when spending is curtailed to a larger extent, the industry's revenues look down in general. Accordingly, the industry's growth, capacities and utilization rates flash their own crests and troughs though not as severe as the end-use industries themselves. Capital intensiveness of the industry also impacts the cyclical growth periods often, with growth occurring in fits with intermittent revolutionary technology developments. By 2015, global thin layer deposition equipment market is expected to reach $22.4 billion.

Thin Layer Deposition Equipment Market to Reach $22.4 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA | Posted on November 10th, 2008

The thin layer deposition equipment industry is highly competitive and capital-intensive. Technology and timing are the critical success factors that are carving up the industry landscape. Companies with strategically maneuvered technology investments are leaping forward, while others bogged down by discontinuous technology investments are witnessing plummeting shares. As the cutthroat dynamics operating in the industry shorten product life cycles and soften industry pricing, market shares are under pressure, with winds of change blowing in favor of technology innovators, who are also the industry's prime movers. In other words, market leaders with no significant interest in next generation technologies are likely to fall flat and stake their leadership to zealous companies fervently venturing to commercialize new thin film product chemistries and deposition technologies.

North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific account for over 85% of the global thin layer deposition equipment market, as stated by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Thin layer deposition is seeking newer markets and is continuously evolving to reach new heights leveraging on its proven abilities to offer desired engineering/chemical/optical properties that enhance functionality and longevity of the substrate/tool and as a unique solution to metal layer deposition in highly sophisticated applications such as atomic layer deposition, gold film for lenses and mirrors. The US physical vapor deposition equipment market is expected to witness the strongest growth and reach US$2.4 billion by 2010. chemical vapor deposition equipment market in Asia-Pacific is expected to witness a CAGR of 14.4% over the period 2001-2010.

Thin layer deposition (TLD) equipment makers are fairly concentrated in the microelectronics industry, with majority of their businesses vested with the semiconductor fabrication industry. The industry accounts for a gigantic share of the total TLD equipment industry's revenues. However, the industry, prone to frequent disruptions arising in sync with economic fortunes of the markets, is severely hurting the profitability and order bookings of the TLD equipment industry. For long, TLD equipment makers have fruitlessly restricted their target market to the semiconductor industry, where equipment spending is often governed by host of economic and commercial factors, not taking much note of revolutionary improvements accomplished in technology.

Unlike the diversified Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) industry, the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) industry is much more concentrated on high-tech applications of microelectronic components such as semiconductors and opto-electronic components, aerospace and medical technology. Realizing the physical and technological limitations of PVD in the microelectronics industry, PVD equipment makers have largely diversified into a variety of end-use segments such as information storage, optics, medical instruments, industrial coatings, automotive and aerospace components and specialty/flexible packaging, where they race ahead of CVD technologies in terms of cost efficiency and coating volumes. Whereas, CVD zooms ahead of PVD technologies in terms of sophistication, innovation, extended functionality in the microelectronic industry, despite shrinking feature sizes and in terms of premium value accorded by the end-users.

The report titled "Thin Layer Deposition Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report" published by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, product overview, key markets worldwide, product introductions/innovations, and recent industry activity. The report analyzes market data and analytics in value sales for the period 1991-2015, for regions such as the United States, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Latin America. The study also analyzes the PVD equipment market by the following end-use applications - Microelectronics, Cutting Tools, Industrial, Specialty Packaging, Storage, Optics, and Medical Applications; and the CVD equipment market by the following end-use applications - Cutting Tools, Industrial, and Medical Applications.

Major market participants include AIXTRON, Applied Materials, Inc., ASM International N.V., Axcelis Technologies, Inc., Canon ANELVA Corporation, CHA Industries, CVD Equipment Corporation, Denton Vacuum, Edwards Limited, Ibis Technology Corporation, Implant Sciences Corporation, Ionbond AG, Jusung Engineering Co., Ltd., KDF Electronic & Vacuum Services, Inc., Kokusai Semiconductor Equipment Corporation, Kookje Electric Korea Co., Ltd., Novellus Systems, Inc., OC Oerlikon Corporation AG, RIBER SA, Seki Technotron USA, SEN Corporation, Silicon Genesis Corporation, Tecvac Limited, Tegal Corporation, Ti-Coating, Inc., Tokyo Electron Limited, Ultramet, ULVAC Technologies, Inc., Vapor Technologies, Inc., and Veeco Instruments.
