Yole Développement (Yole) announces a 12% CAGR to reach US$680 million in 2026.
“The worldwide fab capacity expansion is accelerating the industrial adoption of ALD equipment,” asserts Taguhi Yeghoyan, Ph.D., Technology & Market Analyst, Semiconductor Manufacturing at Yole Développement (Yole).
The ALD equipment market dedicated to MtM device manufacturing totaled US$345 million in 2020 and was dominated by CIS (47%). In the coming years, the ALD equipment market is expected to increase with a 12% CAGR between 2020 and 2026, reaching $680M in 2026.
This market’s promising outlook is well detailed in the first Yole report fully dedicated to ALD, published today: Atomic Layer Deposition Equipment for More than Moore report. This report is one of the impressive collection of semiconductor manufacturing reports published by the market research & strategy consulting company, Yole.
The ALD analysis offers a comprehensive description of the status of industrial adoption for MtM device production. It highlights process requirements and trends. The semiconductor manufacturing team also provides a relevant ALD equipment benchmark, including technology, reactor architecture, and average selling price. Furthermore, the supply chain and related ecosystem are analyzed.
This technology & market study includes market size analysis with a breakdown by market share, wafer size, and device application, as well as an ALD equipment market forecast with a breakdown by device application.
According to Yole’s analysts, two main reasons can be given for the high growth of the ALD equipment market.
Firstly, manufacturing sites are gearing up for the production of MtM devices that are gaining importance across all the megatrends: for example, compound semiconductor-based power devices, in particular GaN and SiC, as well as photonic devices, including miniLED and microLED. Their manufacturing is just rocketing for automotive and consumer applications, and ALD equipment sales are expected to increase with impressive CAGRs of 12% for power and 30% CAGR for photonics. The growth is further strengthened by the high wafer production volume of CIS devices, silicon power electronics, and advanced packaging – mainly Wafer Level Encapsulation – used across all MtM applications.
Secondly, the global semiconductor market is favorable. Chip shortages across all markets and MtM devices have pushed manufacturers to announce fab capacity expansion worldwide.
