Pre-shipment Inspection: Introduction

  • Silicon carbide epitaxial wafers are made by placing multi-micrometer thick single silicon carbide crystal layers on top of a polished wafer. Precise control of thickness, doping, and defect density is needed to manufacture high yielding power devices from a semiconductor fabrication facility.
  • Silicon carbide-based devices are widely utilized for short-wavelength optoelectronic, radiation-resistant, and high-temperature applications. SiC wafers have been majorly used by small and large semiconductor device manufacturing companies as well as research labs across the world.
  • Increase in demand for advanced semiconductors and rise in innovative end-user applications are major factors boosting the global silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market

Rise in Demand for 200mm Segment

  • The 200mm segment of the global silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period
  • Exponential use of 200mm wafers in LED applications due to the greater yield offered by these wafers is propelling the silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market across the world. Additionally, an increase in number of operational 200mm wafer fabrication facilities is expected to significantly drive the demand for 200mm wafers.
  • The cost benefits associated with reclaiming the 200mm wafer are expected to drive the 200 mm segment during the forecast period. These factors increase the adoption of silicon carbide epitaxial wafer services worldwide.
  • However, delay of investment plans for capacity expansion by wafer manufacturers due to COVID-19 is a major factor that is estimated to restrain the global silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market during the forecast period

Asia Pacific to Lead Global Silicon Carbide Epitaxial Wafer Market

  • In terms of region, the global silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate the global silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market during the forecast period due to an increase in disposable income coupled with an increase in population that has resulted in a rise in the demand for electronics, and alternative renewable sources of energy, which in turn is estimated to fuel the electronics industry in the region.
  • The market in the region is expected to expand further due to rapid expansion of electronics industry in China, Thailand, India, South Korea, and Taiwan
  • Expansion of the electronics industry is due to technological advancement coupled with low labor costs in Taiwan and Japan, which in turn is projected to propel the market in the region
  • The silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market in Europe is estimated to expand at a substantial rate during the forecast period since a large number of manufactures such as Siltronic AG (Germany), STMicroelectronics, and SweGaN AB operate in the region
  • On the other hand, the silicon carbide epitaxial wafer market in North America, Middle East & Africa, and South America is estimated to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period
