Global Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market: Description

Semiconductor wafer refers to a thin slice of semiconductor material such as silicon or gallium arsenide. These wafers are vital component of integrated circuits (ICs). They can be used for numerous applications in smartphones, laptop, computers, digital & electrical gadgets, and others. The foundation of the electronics industry is the semiconductor wafer, which continues to be a key component of many microelectronic devices.

Since electronic mobility and digitization are the two current trends dominating the technological scene, many different gadgets are using these items.

The growth of the global semiconductor wafer market revenue is anticipated to be driven by factors such as growing usage of semiconductor wafers in power amplifiers for transmitting ultra-high radio frequency, fast electronic switching, and high-speed signals applications. In addition, increase in adoption of smart devices and rise in sales of consumer electronic devices boost the overall semiconductor wafer market growth.

However, volatility in cost of raw materials acts as a major restraint of the global semiconductor wafer industry. On the contrary, surge in usage in automotive, healthcare, and industrial applications is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the semiconductor wafer industry.

Globally, businesses are shifting towards 5G connectivity with the hope to enhance operational efficiency and increasing transaction volumes. 5G networks yield 20 times faster speeds and reduced download times, thus making them suitable for applications in industries such as automotive and smart city development. Semiconductor wafers manufactured using Gallium Nitride (GaN) are expected to become highly renowned, with the capacity to achieve a power-added efficiency (PAE) of 50% or more.

Furthermore, domains such as AI augmented reality and autonomous vehicles are expected to deploy 5G technology on a wide scale. With process automation increasing inroads in the global automotive industry, the popularity of self-driving vehicles is garnering credible momentum. The numerous complex chips governing the functioning of all systems must be protected against electrical faults which could undermine advanced features such as collision avoidance. According to Industrial Standard ISO26262, the automotive industry makes it a priority to render mechanical engineering more safety conscious.
