Thin Film Deposition Equipment Market: Introduction

  • Thin film deposition is the process of depositing thin film materials on a silicon wafer substrate for processing. Non-metals such as silicon dioxide, silicon nitride, and polysilicon as well as metals, such as copper, can be deposited as film material.
  • The deposited film can be polycrystalline or single crystal, amorphous. In the wafer manufacturing process, all three types of films are used.
  • Thin film deposition equipment is primarily responsible for the deposition of the dielectric layer and metal layer in each step, including PVD (physical vapor deposition) equipment, CVD (chemical vapor deposition) equipment, and ALD (atomic layer deposition) equipment. The CVD type is a thin film deposition equipment required for some process nodes in advanced processes.
  • New technologies such as automotive electronics, 5G communication technologies, data centers, artificial intelligence, smart cities, and other new technologies are estimated to increase the proportion of advanced process production lines, and progress and consequently, drive the thin film deposition equipment market.
