BCC Research reveals in its new report, Thin-layer Deposition: CVD, Ion Implantation and Epitaxy, the global market for chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is expected to grow to $6.8 billion by 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3%. The ion implantation category is the fastest moving segment in this market, growing at a significant CAGR of 16.3%.
Thin-layer deposition, a process used to produce advanced, high-performance materials, is critical to the semiconductor industry and for the miniaturization of electronic devices. Indeed almost all applications within the microelectronics industry utilize some form of this process, including CVD, ion implantation, and/or epitaxy.
The CVD category is the largest segment of the overall market. However, the ion implantation segment is estimated at just about $2.2 billion for 2014 and is expected to jump to nearly $4.7 billion in 2019.
“Over the last few years, the semiconductor industry has experienced a relatively positive and steady growth primarily fueled by the demand for semiconductors and electronic components and devices for everyday items such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops,” says BCC Research semiconductor analyst Mayank Jain. “Thin-layer deposition is a critical process in the manufacturing of semiconductors and electronic components.”
