The global demand for Epitaxial Wafer Market is presumed to reach the valuation of nearly USD XX MN by 2026 from USD XX MN in 2019 with a CAGR of XX% under the study period of 2020 - 2026.
Epitaxial wafer also referred to as epiwafer, is a semiconductor wafer by epitaxial growth of a crystalline doped layer of silicon or a more exotic material on a single crystal substrate. Epitaxial wafers are extensively used in photonics, microelectronics, spintronics, or photovoltaics. Epitaxial layers consist of gallium, indium, aluminum, nitrogen, phosphorus, or arsenic. Electronic devices with these wafers exhibit superior performance in RF power density, power switching efficiency, energy-saving, sensor robustness, and sensitivity. They involve low development costs, and customer-specific wafers can be quickly and easily manufactured.
The rising popularity of advanced electronic equipment and the need for power-efficient devices across various industrial sectors will be the vital stimulating factors leading to this market's growth. Increased adoption of highly integrated semiconductor elements (ICs), smart devices, automation-based solutions, and the growing trend of IoT technology will boost market growth. With the rise of electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles, the surge in demand for the epitaxial wafer in several products, like ADAS, navigation control, infotainment systems, and collision detections, will further propel market growth. Using epitaxial wafers can enable innovation at the device level to meet the requirements of next-generation 5G radiofrequency (RF) cellular networks, smart sensor systems, and consumer power supplies. The various complexities involved in designing these wafers are the single most restraining factor for this market's growth.
