Thin Film Semiconductor (TFS) Deposition Market Size Worth USD 23.2 Billion by 2025 | CAGR: 15.1%

Published Date : July 2019 | Report Code: AV320 | Report Format: PDF

The thin film semiconductor deposition market is expected to grow at CAGR of 15.1% to reach USD 23.2 billion by 2025.

Thin Film Semiconductor (TFS) foils are made from artificial semiconductor material. Its thickness varies and can measures up to nanometers or millimeters. The demand for TFS has increased owing to plethora of benefits such as lightweight, higher efficiency, flexibility in shape and less space consumption as compared to conventional silicon (c-Si). The growth of this next-generation technology receives impetus from the need of circuit miniaturization, growing demands of the sensor in the household equipment, smartphone industry and aircraft. Surging demand for thin film solar panel, flexible electronics, batteries, and the flexible display is further augmenting the industry growth. 

Technological breakthroughs in consumer technologies like the emergence of 3D televisions, Ultra High Definition, and hybrid laptops leverage the strong demand for integrated circuits. This will also bring positive growth in the market for TFS deposition. Growing demand for high-end memory devices like NAND, 3D, and DRAM will further support this technology growth. On the flip side, huge initial investment for setting up manufacturing facility for TFS coupled with high cost of raw materials pull back the industry growth to some extent.

Key Takeaway

  • Deposition technology segment is categorized into chemical vapor deposition (CVD), physical vapor deposition (PVD) and others. CVD segment has the highest revenue share owing to rising demand for this technique in semiconductor and electronics manufacturing.
  • Also, its extensive use in photovoltaic technology, easier manufacturing process, and low cost of manufacturing support the growing demand during the study period
