Fin Field Effect Transistor (FinFET) is a type of 3D transistor utilized in the designing of processors. FinFET is built on a silicon on insulator (SOI) substrate that helps in reducing the leakage current. FinFET technology allows chipset makers to build ultra-powerful processors, which are less power consuming and more efficient. In terms of operating speed, FinFETs are claimed to be 30% faster than the non-FinFET versions. Moreover, based on operating voltage, FinFETs operates at a lower voltage as a result of their lower threshold voltage. Owing to these advantages of FinFET technology over conventional technology, the market for FinFET technology is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period.
The FinFET technology market has been experiencing significant growth in the recent years due to high demand for efficient and high performance chips that offer lesser current leakage in various applications. Moreover, high adoption rate of FinFET technology in wearables and growing mobile and consumer electronics market is further expected to fuel the growth of FinFET technology market during the forecast period. However, design complexity of FinFET chips hampers its adoption in various products which is eventually hindering the market growth.
