Global Silicon Wafers Market – Overview
A silicon wafer is a semiconductor material used as a substrate for the fabrication of semiconductor components such as semiconductor ICs. Semiconductor components undergo several micro fabrication steps including ion implantation, etching, deposition of various materials, and photolithographic patterning. The last step involves microcircuits being separated from the silicon wafers through dicing.
One of the major drivers for this market is emergence of advanced and compact consumer electronic devices. Consumer electronic devices have witnessed a massive transformation in the last five years. Smartphones have replaced feature phones, laptops have replaced PCs, and now tablets are replacing laptops. LED TVs and OLED TVs too are replacing CRT TVs.
A shift from multi to monocrystalline silicon has been evident in the wafer market throughout 2016, as new manufacturing technologies and market developments have brought down the cost of mono, allowing its efficiency advantage to come into play. “During the past couple of years growth in wafer capacity has largely been supported by the increase of monocrystalline wafer, which has grown at twice the rate of multi in terms of relative growth. The main factors for this are technology improvements and the price decline, which has narrowed the gap in average selling price between mono and multi.
The major players operating in the market of Silicon wafers are- Elkem AS (Norway), Addison Engineering (CA), Renewable Energy Corporation (Norway), Shin-Etsu Handotai Co. Ltd. (Japan) , Siltronic AG (Germany), MEMC Electronic Materials Inc.(California), LG Siltron Inc.( South Korea), Advance Semiconductor Inc.(U.S.), and SUMCO Corp.(Japan) among others

December, 2017 – Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, has integrated hybrid III-V silicon lasers on 200mm wafers using standard CMOS process flow. This breakthrough shows the way to transitioning away from 100mm wafers and a process based on bulk III-V technology that requires contacts with noble metals and lift-off based patterning. CMOS compatibility with silicon photonics lowers fabrication costs, and provides access to mature and large-scale facilities, which enables packaging compatibility with CMOS driving circuits.
November, 2017 – Heraeus Photovoltaic, the worldwide leading supplier of metallization solutions to the PV industry, announced a comprehensive cooperation agreement with Rietech Solar, a China-based manufacturer of silicon wafers for solar cells. Under the agreement, Rietech Solar will upgrade its manufacturing process to use Hera Glaze, the new high-purity SiO2 diffusion barrier coating from Heraeus, for mass production of it multi-crystalline wafers. For Heraeus, the agreement represents a major step to expand its presence upstream in the solar photovoltaic value chain.
December, 2017 – Apple collaborated with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to develop applications using silicon-based technology, the sources went on to unveil. The two companies intend to apply silicon wafers to dodge the bottleneck that includes the mass transfer of Micro LED chips onto receiver substrates,
