“The small-wafer (1’’ – 6’’) market is anything but “dead”,” asserts Gaël Giusti, PhD., Technology & Market Analyst specializing in Semiconductor Manufacturing and Equipment & Materials at Yole Développement (Yole).
Released today, the 6” and Below: Small-Dimension Wafer Market Trends
report gives detailed analysis of the small-dimension wafer market by
material, application, and diameter.
In this new report, performed by Yole’s semiconductor manufacturing
team, the company paints a valuable picture of a prosperous
The market research & strategy consulting company [forecasts] “1,8% CAGR between 2019 and 2025 and estimated
revenues of US$5.4 billion in 2025. More than Moore applications
represent the overwhelming part of this market, and as such it is still
very dynamic. In fact, non-Si wafer markets exhibit moderate to strong
CAGRs over the 2019 – 2025 period: for example, 19.5% for SiC, with
revenues estimated at US$712 million in 2025. Only Si exhibits a
moderate negative CAGR, with -3.3% over the same period for sub-6” Si
wafers, due mostly to power and RF applications increasingly
transitioning to 8” and even 12”, comments Gael Giusti, PhD, Technology & Market Analyst at Yole.
