Sputtering equipment Market is a thin film deposition manufacturing method in today’s semiconductor, CDs, disk drives, and the optical devices industry. On the atomic level, sputtering is a method whereby atoms are being ejected from the target or the source material which is actually to be deposited on the substrate – like a silicon wafer, optical device or the solar panel because of the bombardment of the target by the high energy particles.
For purpose of in depth analysis, the sputtering equipment market is been segmented on the basis of product types, applications andgeography. Based on the product type, the market has been segmented into four types they are like logic, memory, analog and discrete. Various types of applications of sputtering equipment’s include application in consumer electronics, automotive sector and healthcare electronics and in other industrial applications. Moreover, this report also provides the cross functional analysis of all the above mentioned segment across different regions such as Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.
Extensive use of sputter deposition for the purpose of semiconductor manufacturing and to deposit thin film of different material used for the purpose of IC processing on the substrate is one of the key drivers for the growth of Sputtering equipment market. The tri axis capability of sputtering system having orientations like sputtering up, sputtering down and sputtering horizontally can be easily used for achieving any types of desired pumping operation like turbo or cryo. It is also possible use to have a simple single chamber orientation, which is to be fully vented for the purpose of unloading and loading, or for the purpose of adding either a mechanized or manual transfer arm loading lock.Therefore, the growing need of small chambered confocial sputtering equipments is the main factor anticipated to catalyze the growing demand of different sputtering equipment’s during the forecasted period from 2017 to 2025. In addition, growth of smaller chamber sputtering system for higher throughput value and less cost is also anticipated to increase the demand of sputtering equipment’s in the upcoming years. In turn this is also projected to affect the Sputtering equipment market in a positive manner during the forecasted period.
