SOI Market Research
Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology refers to the use of a layered silicon-insulator-silicon substrate instead of conventional silicon substrates in semiconductor manufacturing, especially microelectronics, to reduce parasitic device capacitance, thus improving performance.
SOI wafers are gaining high popularity in the semiconductor industry owing to their benefits of low power consumption and junction capacitance. SOI wafers hold the potential to replace bulk silicon wafers in semiconductor applications. The market for SOI devices and components is thus expected to show consistent growth in coming years. Employing SOI improves the device’s electrical performance by reducing parasitic capacitances, especially in high-speed and very dense circuits. It is also known to increase radiation hardness for aerospace applications.
Research reveals that the global SOI wafer market is estimated to be $1.3 billion by 2015, growing at a CAGR of 15.3% till 2015. The market growth is anticipated to be primarily driven by applications such as MEMS and microprocessors used in computers and video games. Further, the increased investments into new manufacturing plants are likely to fuel market growth, along with R&D initiatives by manufacturers, universities, and individual users.
