“Polymeric Materials for 3DIC & WLP Applications”, a new report from Yole Développement.
Yole Développement announces its report “Polymeric Materials for 3DIC & WLP Applications”. This report provides a complete analysis of the opportunities for Polymeric Materials in 3DIC & Wafer-Level Packaging applications.
Polymer usage will grow by 26% CAGR in wafer level applications over 5 years
Polymeric semiconductor material market reached a value of $274M last year and its growth over the next 5 years of more than 26% CAGR will be fueled by the expansion of flip-chip wafer bumping, Fan-in WLCSP packages, 3D WLP, FO WLP packages, 2.5D Glass / Silicon interposers and 3DIC packages.
Yole Développement analysts have gathered market data, technology information and analysis necessary to answer the following questions:
o What materials are being used in what applications?
o What key properties do I need to understand before I make a material choice?
o Who are the key suppliers of these materials and what is their market share?
o What synergies do competitors have in their product lines?
An increasing number of polymers are used for WLP applications
“About half of the demand today for polymeric materials in 3DIC & WLP applications is driven by dielectric passivation resins which reached about $107M market value in 2011,” explains Phil Garrou, Senior Consultant, Advanced Packaging at Yole Développement.
Polymide (PI) and BCB of DOW Chemical still account for >70% of the total demand, historically by the growth of flip-chip bumping and WLCSP passivation steps.
PBO, epoxies, WPR and AL-X recently entered the market thanks to the growing demand in 300mm WLCSP, FOWLP and emerging 3DIC applications.
