Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment Market Report
DUBLIN, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tp2v8h/global)
has announced the addition of the “Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment Market Report”
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tp2v8h/global ] report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment market to grow at a
CAGR of 12.37 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to
this market growth is the increasing demand for integration and contraction of
semiconductor devices. The Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment market has also been
witnessing a reduction in the chip size. However, the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor
industry could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
The report, the Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment Market 2012-2016, has been
prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The
report covers the market in the Americas and the APAC and EMEA regions; it also covers the
Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment market landscape and its growth prospects in the
coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this
One of the major trends witnessed in the Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/tp2v8h/global ] market is the continuous
reduction in the size of chip designs. Currently, vendors in the market are focusing on
manufacturing miniaturized semiconductor ICs that consume less power.
Since the market is witnessing a continuous reduction in the size of chip designs,
semiconductor manufacturers are focusing on factors such as integrating different
features, reducing the size of semiconductor wafers, and lowering IC power consumption.
Therefore, the usage of semiconductor stepper equipment is increasing in the market,
thereby, increasing the demand for miniaturized wafers.
According to the report, the biggest factor driving the growth of the market is the
increasing demand for the integration and miniaturization of semiconductor ICs.
Integration is achieved by layering the chips into a single device that is supported
through bump processes and TSV.
The semiconductor stepper equipment accommodates these TSV and bump processes.
Therefore, this rising demand has created more demand for semiconductor stepper equipment,
thus driving the growth of the Global Semiconductor Stepper Equipment market.
Further, the report states that the most important issue confronting the market is the
cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry as a result of which semiconductor stepper
equipment manufacturers often experience fluctuating revenues, which in turn adversely
