Initially, the military in U.S. had used SOI during the 1960s, before SOI were commercialized in the 1980s. Silicon-on-insulators comprise of a thin silicon topmost layer, a thicker silicon lowermost layer, and an insulating material (such as silicon dioxide) middle layer. The silicon layer thickness differs based on the product application which can be for electrical power switching devices or for high-performance microprocessors. The type of insulator and the uppermost silicon layer used in SOI depends on the intended application. SOI are high in demand due to their optimum performance characteristics and low energy and power usage. They also provide functionality at a higher speed, compared to regular silicon wafers.

SOI market is driven by factors such as increasing demand for gaming consoles and microprocessor, rising demand from emerging countries in Asia Pacific and established countries in North America and Europe. The rising demand for SOI is attributed to their application in mobile phones, digital cameras, notebooks, and other such electronic devices. The market’s growth is suppressed by factors such as time-consuming manufacturing process, volatility in prices of the raw materials, and the high cost of the raw material in addition to the intricate designing necessary in product development. 

Geographically, the report segments the global SOI market into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World. North America and Asia Pacific are expected to lead the global SOI market in terms of consumption and revenue.
