Global E-beam Wafer Inspection System Market: Snapshot

Wafer inspection systems are required for the timely detection of physical and technological defects present within wafers. Currently, both e-beam and optical technologies are used in the detection of defects in wafers. With the application of I-beams manufacturers of compact devices are able to timely detect faults in wafers, thus saving the additional expenditure, which otherwise they would incur on re-inspection. The technology, therefore, ensures long-term usage of wafers across various industrial verticals. This has emerged as a key reason, positively impacting the overall trajectory of the global e-beam wafer inspection system market.

Increasing applications of thin wafers in manufacturing small or miniaturized devices used in micro-electro-mechanical systems, laptops, and smartphones among others have bolstered the demand for e-beam wafer inspection systems. Also, the market is forecast to gain from the persistently rising activities in the semiconductor industry. These industrial activities will continue rising over the forecast period, delivering the e-beam wafer inspection system market with ample opportunities to gain from.  

Spurred by the aforementioned factors, the global e-beam wafer inspection system market is forecast to exhibit a CAGR of 17.5% between 2015 and 2025. Rising at this rate, the market will reach US$1.06 bn by the end of 2025, from US$248.3 million in 2016.

Since the semiconductor industry is rapidly expanding and pushing its development boundaries, there will be a huge demand for more wafer inspection systems during the assessment timeframe. The said market, however, is technically sophisticated and is particularly capital intensive.

Hermes Microvision is regarded as one of the leading players in the global E-beam wafer inspection system market and is likely to take over the major portion of the market. The demand for wafer inspection systems is expected to rise during the prediction timeframe, as the semiconductor industry develops and expands. This growing prominence of wafer inspection systems is likely to open up new business opportunities for manufacturers, attracting new vendors and thus intensifying competition.

Market to Benefit from Increasing Demand for Consumer Electronics Sector

Steadily increasing demand for high-quality semiconductors has stemmed from augmented growth in the consumer electronics business, which includes products like LEDs, LCDs, wearables, gadgets, and smartphones. The inspection method is utilized in these systems to detect defects or faults in compact devices, which is estimated to support the growth of the global E-beam wafer inspection system market in near future. Furthermore, manufacturers' increasing investments in innovation to provide high-precision semiconductor tools at lower costs is likely to support demand from the industry.  The demand for e-beam wafer inspection systems is being boosted by ongoing technological developments that are enabling semiconductor makers to use EUV lithography in their fabrication processes.

Lithography equipment is widely utilized in the processes of wafer fabrication in IC production technology and semiconductor manufacturing, which necessitates the detection of defects on the mask and wafer, resulting in a rise in the use of e-beam inspection in wafer fabrication. Manufacturers are concentrating their efforts on developing multiple e-beam inspection systems with throughput and high sensitivity by incorporating sophisticated technology like computation to cater to the high demand for EUV lithography.
