The innovation in the semiconductor packaging technology largely depends on the size of wafer. Hence, the increasing focus on wafer-level packages is resulting in chip industry to come up with advanced packaging solutions. The Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging (FO-WLP) technology is emerging as an alternative to the 2.5D packaging. Moreover, Fan-out wafer-level packaging can manage multiple dies as compared to the fan-in wafer-level packaging that can handle only single die. Fan-out packaging technology is also witnessing significant growth as it eliminates the need for process flows including wafer fluxing, bumping, cleaning, curing, flip-chip assembly, and underfill dispensing.  

Manufacturers are also focusing on producing larger diameter wafers due to increasing demand this is likely to cut down manufacturing cost and will also lead to the development of advanced semiconductor packaging solution.

A study by Transparency Market Research (TMR) is expecting the global market for advanced semiconductor packaging to experience robust growth. It also projects the market to increase to 10.9% CAGR throughout the forecast period. The global market for advanced semiconductor packaging is also likely to bring in US$ 67,208.2 million revenue towards 2026 end.
