COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The novel coronavirus pandemic has ushered in multiple impacts across the global semiconductor wafers market. Stringent government-mandated lockdowns have contracted production of automotives, a key application area for semiconductor wafers.

A 16% decline was experienced in the global automotive industry since the past few months, thereby restraining sales of semiconductor wafers for multiple purposes such as infotainment systems, collision detection and navigation.

Simultaneously, surging sales of consumer electronic products is keeping the semiconductor wafers market demand afloat, particularly across emerging economies. With mandatory lockdowns imposed, corporate entities, educational institutions and entertainment houses are encouraging virtual interactions, thus upscaling demand for smartphones, tablets and laptops.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent semiconductor wafers manufacturers profiled in the report include Applied Materials Inc., ASM International, Nikon Corporation, SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions Co. Ltd., Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation, Tokyo Electron Limited, ASML Holding N.V., KLA Corporation, Lam Research Corporation and others.

In November 2020, Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation launched its 3D SEM CT1000 used for defect observation across semiconductors. The devices enables a three-dimensional observation of pattern and defects shapes occurring during the manufacturing process on wafers measuring upto 200 mm in diameter.
