Semiconductor Gases Market: Introduction
Semiconductor gases are gases which is used to manufacture semiconductors. Semiconductor is a material having property in between an insulator and most metals. It is used in modern day electronics such as transistors and diodes. Transistors are used in power electronics, CPUs, and sensors, while diodes are used in devices such as LEDs and inverters.
Gas producers supply high quality and stable gases used in semiconductor processes to keep these processes clean and stable. Semiconductor gases allows to grow films of oxide, nitride and poly or dope the wafers to change the electrical characteristics of semiconductor. The oxide acts as a barrier when dopant chemicals are deposited on the surface and diffused into the surface. Nitrogen is the most used gas, typically employed for purging of pumps and vacuum chambers in a semiconductor electronic industry. Helium is used as cooling gas in the semiconductor electronic industry.
Semiconductor Gases Market: Key Segmentation
The global semiconductor gases market can be segmented based on material, application, end-user industry, and region. In terms of material, the semiconductor gases market can be classified into air separation gases (nitrogen, oxygen, and argon), synthetic gases (hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and acetylene), and specialty gases (ultra-high purity gases and electronic gases).
The specialty gases segment is projected to expand at rapid pace from 2018 and 2026. Specialty gases are ultra-high purity gases. Up to 25 different high specialty gases are required to manufacture Printed circuit boards. Various steps are used to manufacture semiconductor using gases: oxidation, deposition, etching, fixing, and inerting. These gases help improve yield, optimize performance, and lower costs.
Various industries such as metal, pharmaceuticals, electronics, and petrochemical benefit from the unique properties of specialty gases. Here in electronic, mobile producer is expected to remain the dominant segment of the semiconductor gases market during the forecast period, due to the easy communication & internet access.
Based on application, the semiconductor gases market can be segmented into integrated circuit (IC) and printed circuit board (PCB). PCB is expected to remain the dominant segment of the market during the forecast period. Specialty gases are largely used in the manufacture of PCBs, which are used in mobiles, laptops, transformers, and TVs.
Semiconductor Gases Market: Regional Outlook
Based on the region, the global semiconductor gases market can be divided into Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to remain the dominant region of the global semiconductor gases market during the projected period. Rise in urbanization and increase in digitization in countries such as India and China are key factors anticipated to propel the demand for semiconductor gases in Asia Pacific. The semiconductor gases market in Africa is expected to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period due to the underdeveloped economy, lack of technological advancement, and lack of natural resources.
