Semiconductor is a material that acts as good conductor or insulator and conducts more electricity post addition of heat, voltage or light making changes in electrical properties. Silicon or germanium are used as semiconductor materials that has poor conductivity at low temperatures and is gradually improved with minute additions of certain substances. The electrical properties and conductivity of a semiconductor comes between that of a conductor and an insulator. After electricity is passed to semiconductors their state changes from conductive and non-conductive to reflective and non-reflective. Semiconductor manufacturing equipment are used for the fabrication of semiconductor chips. These manufacturing equipment are used for research and development as well as form fixtures for supporting semiconductor fabrication facility. The global market for semiconductor production equipment has been segmented on the basis of equipment type, application and geography. The global semiconductor production equipment market based on its equipment type has been segmented on the basis of assembly and packaging type, wafer processing type and test equipment among others.
