Global Semiconductor Gases Market is estimated to witness a major jump in revenue from US$ 8,584.7 Mn in 2021 to US$ 12,450.3 Mn by 2027. The market is registering a CAGR of 6.4% over the projection period 2022-2027. Semiconductor gases are gases that are used to manufacture semiconductors. A semiconductor is a material having property in between an insulator and most metals. It is used in modern-day electronics such as transistors and diodes. Transistors are used in power electronics, CPUs, and sensors, while diodes are used in devices such as LEDs and inverters.
Also, semiconductor gases allow to grow films of oxide, nitride, and poly or dope the wafers to change the electrical characteristics of semiconductors. The oxide acts as a barrier when dopant chemicals are deposited on the surface and diffused into the surface. Moreover, semiconductor gas plays a prominent role in improving the performance of electrical and electronic devices. Semiconductor gases have been the key enabler of the semiconductor industry considering the global scenario. Properties unique to gases have made them the desired materials to build ever more complex semiconductor devices, such as easy to transport and store, easy to dispense with high accuracy, and most notably, easier to control desired chemical reactions at the molecular level.
Growing usage of semiconductor gases in the electrical and electronic industry, favorable government initiatives to promote the semiconductor industry, and escalating demand for semiconductor gases to perform effective semiconductor processing are expected to boost the semiconductor gases market growth. There has been an increased usage of semiconductors in electrical and electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, television, and more, which further strengthens the demand for semiconductor gases in electronic applications as these gases substantially reduce the manufacturing costs. Moreover, the government and stakeholders are taking broad initiative in the promotion of the semiconductor industry and expanding the usage of electrical insulating materials in semiconductor manufacturing. However, high gas exposure presents significant challenges in the semiconductor industry due to gas toxicity, explosivity, and flammability. Also, the high material and fabrication costs associated with semiconductor manufacturing are the factors hampering the growth of the global semiconductor gases market over the forecast years.
Key Insights of the Report:
Impact of COVID-19 on Global Semiconductor Gases Market
During the inception of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global demand for the semiconductor gases market is significantly declined due to the reduced investments by government and private companies in semiconductor manufacturing, which leads to cutbacks in such business lines. Due to the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic the market situation of semiconductor production is being halted and has forced the government authorities and key manufacturers to stop or delay their manufacturing processes and investment in such manufacturing plants. Moreover, the pandemic further interrupted the demand and supply of industrial gases in the semiconductor business throughout the world, backed by the certain restriction on trade and lockdown imposed by the government bodies. Also, many programs have experienced a slowdown due to the economic downturn and have been suspended for a brief period. This often limits the adoption of semiconductor gases and therefore, inhibits the market growth globally.
