Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Systems Markett to Undertake Strapping Growth During 2015 - 2021

Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Systems Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2015
– 2021
Semiconductor wafer manufacturing requires utmost quality standards to be followed and the
production output needs to be free from contamination. Superior quality of wafer surface is a
necessary requisite for easy and suitable fabrication of VLSI and ULSI circuits. Presence of
unwanted particles or materials during the manufacturing process of semiconductor wafer, results in
the degradation of product quality. The unwanted particles, materials, or contamination can be of
caused due to presence of alkali metals, heavy metals, organic contamination, dopants, base, acid
contamination, etc. These impurities are removed with the help of semiconductor wafer cleaning
systems. The demand for semiconductor cleaning systems is closely related with electronics
production which is mainly concentrated in Asia Pacific region.

Semiconductor wafer cleaning systems, on the basis of technology are classified as cryogen aerosol
based cleaning technology, vapor cleaning technology, local area cleaning technology, fine particle
detection technology and supercritical fluid based cleaning technology. There are various steps
involved in wafer cleaning process which are often identified as purposes such as pre diffusion
clean, particulate removal clean, metallic ion removal, film removal, and post etch clean.
On the basis of type of equipment, the semiconductor wafer cleaning systems can be segmented into
rotary wafer etching system and semi-automated or manual wet batch system. On the basis of end
use the semiconductor wafer cleaning systems can be segmented into those being used for removal
of particle contamination, metallic contamination, and chemical contamination.
On the basis of geography the semiconductor wafer cleaning systems market is segmented into Asia
Pacific, Japan, Middle East & Africa, Latin America, North America and Europe. Asia Pacific
region is expected to be the largest market for these systems owing to increasing semiconductor
production and electronics industry output. Prominent countries in Asia Pacific to represent
promising growth in semiconductor wafer manufacturing systems include China, South Korea and
Taiwan. Some of the underlying demand driving factors include miniaturization of electronics
devices, reducing thickness of circuit systems, increasing demand of portable consumer electronics
devices and constantly improving quality standards of production. Reduction in size of
microelectronic devices and introduction of advanced materials in semiconductor manufacturing
has substantially increased the demand for wafer cleaning and thus semiconductor wafer cleaning
