- The semiconductor industry accounted for a major market share in the overall ion implantation machine market
- The demand for semiconductor device fabrication is anticipated to increase in the near future
- Asia Pacific dominated the market, followed by North America
According to the latest market intelligence study, the global ion implantation machine market is all set to expand at a CAGR of 8 per cent during the forecast period. The report highlights that an increase in the demand of electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, and other electronic gadgets is anticipated to proliferate the ion implantation machine market.
The report also believes that high initial investment associated with procurement and aftersales services of ion implantation machines is also expected to restrain the growth of the ion implantation machine market. Ion implantation machines are expensive and have a long life cycle; hence, their replacement rate is low.
High current ion implantation machines provide high doses of ion beams at high throughputs. These types of implanters are utilized in the fabrication process of CMOS integrated circuits.
About CMOS technology
CMOS technology is one of the popular technologies in the computer chip design industry and is broadly used to form integrated circuits in numerous applications. Moreover, the demand for high current ion implanters is anticipated to increase during the forecast period as they are extensively used in the semiconductor industry.
The semiconductor industry accounted for a major market share in the overall ion implantation machine market. Ion implantation is extensively used in the semiconductor device fabrication process. The demand for semiconductor device fabrication is anticipated to increase in the near future. This will also indirectly increase the demand for ion implantation machines.
Asia Pacific dominated the global ion implantation machine market, followed by North America. The dominance of the Asia Pacific region can be attributed to the presence of a strong semiconductor industry in South East Asia. South East Asian countries are the major manufacturers of semiconductors, thus driving the Asia Pacific ion implantation machine market.
