The global CMP diamond pad conditioner market size is expected to reach USD 427 million by 2026, from USD 269 million in 2018 at CAGR of 6.2%.
Chemical mechanical polishing(CMP) or planarization is a process of smoothing surfaces with a combination of chemical and mechanical forces. It is widely used to planarize semiconductors and also to smooth its surface. In CMP, a diamond disc conditioner is used to condition the polishing pad to restore its planarity and surface roughness.
The CMP pad conditioner is the most ignored element in the process of polishing of semiconductor wafers; however, it has been gaining more attention from last few years. Pad conditioner influences the texture of the pad and affects yield and productivity during semiconductor fabrication. The major factor responsible for the growth of this market is the demand for high-quality semiconductor wafer finish which are then used in the latest technologies and need to be higly durable and high on strength. The growth of market is also attributed to the rising demand for electronics products and evolution of IoT, Industry 4.0, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence.
CMP Diamond Pad Conditioner market is segmented by Types and Applications.
On the basis of type it is sub-segmented into Conventional CMP Diamond Type Conditioner and CVD CMP Diamond Type Conditioner. Conventional CMP Diamond Type Conditioner is made by assigning diamond grits to the flat surface of ceramics or stainless steel. The diamond grits are evenly distributed but their tips are not flattened to the same elevation as the diamond grits. CVD CMP Diamond Type Conditioner is manufactured with specialized processes and uses chemical vapour deposition to form a strong bond between the substrate and diamond and gives an excellent finish to the semiconductor wafer.
On the basis of Application it is sub segmented into 300mm wafer , 200 mm wafer and other. 300mm wafer holds the largest market in the semiconductor industry and are mostly consumed by NAND and DRAM flash memory suppliers. 200 mm wafer market has seen a drop in the market recently , but companies have stared to increase thri production capacited to bounch back into the market. In 2018, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. started the world’s largest 200mm wafer fab.
We have segmented the global ion milling systems market based on geography into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East and Africa.
The U.S. is the global leader the semiconductor industry and registered sales of USD 209 billion in 2018. America has been the leader of the latest technological development globally. Furthermore, 19 states in the U.S. have at least one semiconductor manufacturing facility . More than 50% of the semiconductor manufacturing companies of North America are based in the U.S. Massive semiconductor industry in the region helps in the growth of the industries in the value chain.
The Asia Pacific market for semiconductors is growing at a fast pace. China semiconductor industry has clocked sales of more the USD 80 billion in 2018. Taiwan and South Korea are the two largest semiconductor producers globally and hence have presence of largest CMP pad conditioners companies. Such rising investments by semiconductor manufacturers in the region is expected to further fuel the growth of the materials consumed for semiconductor production. China is investing heavily into the semiconductor and chipmaking industry to fulfill its domestic demand as Chinese manufacturers produces approximately 32% of its domestic demand and China is the world leader in mobile manufacturing and gaming industry, it has had a positive impact on the demand for semiconductors which in turn had boosted the demand of CMP Diamond pad conditioner market. Setting up manufacturing plants of global mobile giants like Samsung and Apple in India have given a boost to semiconductor manufacturers.
Europe semiconductor industry is involved in strengthening its position in the global market and has invested into research and development program. Robert Bosch GmbH has announced the plans for building its new chip factory in Dresden, Germany with an investment of more than USD one billion. All such efforts are expected to fuel the growth of semiconductor industry and therby imcrease the demand for CMP diamond pad conditioner market in upcoming years.
