Ball Bonder Machine: Introduction
- Ball bonder machine is a machine used to enable interconnection between ICs (Integrated Circuits) or any semiconductor device at the time of chip packaging. The connection is established using a thin wire which is generally made of copper, aluminum, gold, or silver. This connection is established through the ball bonding process, which uses a combination of pressure, heat, and ultrasonic energy to make a weld at each end of the wire and chip.
- Ball bonder machines are used in various applications across various end-user segments such as Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Testing (OSATs) and Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDMs).
- The global ball bonder machine market is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, due to increasing demand for ball bonder machines from end-users.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Ball Bonder Machine Market
- Increasing cases of COVID-19 across the globe is resulting in economic slowdown. The impact of COVID-19 is being seen in every sector of the economy, including the global semiconductor industry. However, COVID-19 does not significantly impact the demand for equipment. For instance, in April 2020, Palomar Technologies announced that it is seeing demand for critical semiconductor components. The company said that it has seen an acceleration of orders for its 3880 ball bonder machines for remote machine equipment, medical devices, and robotics. Hence, demand for equipment has not dropped due to COVID-19. This, in turn, is projected to propel the global ball bonder machine market in the coming years.
North America to Hold Major Share of the Global Ball Bonder Machine Market
- In terms of region, the global ball bonder machine market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
- North America dominated the global ball bonder machine market in 2019, due to presence of well-established and technologically advanced manufacturers in the region. The U.S. is a key market in North America, due to increasing production of electronics in the region.
- The ball bonder machine market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. This can be attributed to mass production of electronic products, such as wearable devices, smartphones, and white goods, in China and Taiwan.
