Asian Semiconductor Equipment Suppliers 2017: Markets, Market Shares, Market Forecasts Report – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Asian Semiconductor Equipment Suppliers: Markets, Market Shares, Market Forecasts" report to their offering.

Chipmakers continue to step up investment in new equipment. Since semiconductor equipment investment plummeted through 2013 due to Europe's fiscal crisis in 2012, investment has been picking up. In 2018, global semiconductor equipment investment should reach the past peak level seen in 2011. The areas where investment is most concentrated in the global semiconductor industry are 3D NAND and foundry. Demand for NAND used in SSDs is spiking as 3D NAND can satisfy both memory features and price aspects required by SSDs.

Revenues of the Top 10 semiconductor companies increased 14.1% in 2016 while revenues for the remaining 40 or so companies dropped 20.3%, as shown in the table below. Japanese equipment suppliers held five of the top 10 spots in 2016, ahead of the U.S. with three companies and Europe with two companies.

Korean equipment makers have gained market share in the global deposition equipment arena. While SEC and SK Hynix's capex for memory is bigger than for other semiconductors, domestic equipment suppliers are also increasing their vendor share at SEC and SK Hynix. Korean players are gaining presence as demand for their core machines - ALD and PECVD equipment - is growing faster than other deposition equipment. Given the increase in microfabrication and multiple patterning techniques, there is mounting demand for ALD and PECVD equipment used in the micro-deposition process.
