Seals are one of the critical components used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment. In the semiconductor industry, contaminations are measured in microns as semiconductor equipment making is critical and very sensitive to contaminations. To avoid these contaminations, seals are applied in the wafer fabrication equipment. They are situated in almost every piece of equipment used for the wafer fabrication process, such as chemical vapor deposition, cleaning/etching, atomic layer deposition, physical vapor deposition, oxidation, diffusion, photolithography, rapid thermal process, and ion implant. Seals account for merely 1% of the global semiconductor manufacturing equipment market in terms of value.
When almost all the companies serving industries like automotive, aerospace, and industrial, were recording huge losses due to the sudden drop in demand in the wake of the pandemic. Seals manufacturers serving the semiconductor segment were extremely overloaded with abundant orders. Overall, the semiconductor seals market flourished amid the pandemic and is expected to continue its growth momentum in the year 2021 as well, driven by a host of factors such as increasing high-bandwidth smartphones, increasing demand for wearable devices, and rapid expansion of electric vehicles across the globe. After an excellent growth in 2021, the market is expected to experience a sequential growth till 2026, with a CAGR of 7.6% over the next five years to reach US$ 1,014.0 million in 2026.
Based on the application type, the semiconductor seals market is segmented as cleaning/etching, chemical vapor deposition (CVD), atomic layer deposition (ALD), physical vapor deposition (PVD), oxidation, diffusion, and others. Cleaning/etching is expected to remain the largest segment of the market over the next five years. Key driving factors are rising demand for more efficient cleaning technologies for the development of efficient and effective semiconductors and an increase in the demand for cleaning/etching equipment in the wake of growing demand for small devices such as smartphones, laptops, and other consumer goods. CVD application is gaining traction owing to rising investment in thin-film solar photovoltaic and growing demand for semiconductor lasers.
Based on the material type, the market is segmented as FKM, FFKM, fluorosilicone, and others. FFKM is estimated to maintain its huge dominance in the market and is also expected to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period. Key factors boosting the demand for FFKM seals are increasing demand for high-performance seals owing to increasing wafer size. FKM to maintain its second-leading position in the market. FKM seals are relatively cheaper than FFKM seals and meet the desired requisites of many applications in the semiconductor fabrication process.
On the basis of product type, the market is segmented as O-rings, lip seals, bonded seals, gaskets, and others. O-ring is likely to maintain its dominance during the forecast period, whereas lip seal/bonded seal is expected to grow at the highest rate during the same period. Recovery from deformation and easy-to-use properties of O-rings drive their popularity in semiconductor applications. Bonded seals with a greater life cycle are the key requirement of fabricators with an aim to reduce the maintenance cost.
According to motion type, the semiconductor seals market is segmented as static and dynamic, of which the static segment is expected to remain the dominant one in the coming years. Key applications of static seals are center rings, window seals, gas inlet and outlet, exhaust valve, chamber lid, chemical containers, etc. O-Rings are the major product types used for static applications.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to maintain its unassailable lead in the foreseen future. China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan are the leading markets in the region. A key factor driving the region’s growth is the aggressive promotional policies by the governments coupled with high investments made by private companies. The region is a manufacturing hub for cleaning and chemical vapor deposition equipment and housing equipment manufacturers.
