FOUP Cleaning System Market: Introduction
- FOUP, or Front Opening Universal Pod, or Front Opening Unified Pod, is a special plastic enclosure designed to safely and reliably hold silicon wafers in a controlled environment and transfer wafers between machines for processing or measurement.
- Cleaning FOUPs are required to improve and maintain yields in semiconductor manufacturing processes
- A FOUP is designed with the 300mm limit in mind, replacing removable cassettes with FOUP fins to hold wafers in place and replace lower opening doors to enable robot handling mechanisms to contact the wafers straight from the FOUP
- The FOUP is a grooved plastic container used to hold the wafer, and outgassing from the FOUP can contaminate the wafer. A nitrogen-purged FOUP is used to minimize dust particles.
- Advancements in FOUP, such as higher throughput, energy savings, and a smaller footprint, are projected to drive the FOUP cleaning system market.
Rising Demand for FOUP Cleaning System in Semiconductor Applications
- Application of the FOUP cleaning system in the semiconductor industry is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to the increasing use of FOUP cleaning system for improve and maintain the yield of semiconductor manufacturing process.
- Increased adoption of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) in conventional and modern applications, such as medical devices, communication systems, and automotive sensor devices, is driving the demand for MEMS
- MEMS can be used in almost all electronic devices due to their small size, which is further driving the demand for MEMS in the semiconductor market. Therefore, the demand for FOUP cleaning systems in the semiconductor industry is increasing.
- The FOUP cleaning system also offers several benefits such easy operation by touch panel, protection against electrostatic charge, automatic purging function to prevent growth of bacteria, and prevention of dead water due to auto flushing function. These advancements in features also propel the FOUP cleaning system market.
- Increase in usage of FOUP cleaning system can improve yield by reducing FOUP contaminations such as remove particles, reduce humidity, and reduce airborne molecular contamination (AMC), which in turn is also fueling the FOUP cleaning system market.
Asia Pacific is leading the Global FOUP Cleaning System Market
- In terms of region, the global FOUP cleaning system market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa
- Advancements in abilities of the semiconductor equipment manufacturing industry in economies in Asia, such as China and Japan, are driving the FOUP cleaning system market in the region. Innovation in technologies is expected to further increase the demand for FOUP cleaning system.
- Strong presence of IC manufacturers in the region is also boosting the FOUP cleaning system market in Asia Pacific
- The FOUP cleaning system market in Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at a high growth rate due to the presence of major players in the region and increased competition among them. The market in North America is likely to expand at a steady pace during the forecast period owing to reduced competition in the market in the region.
