According to a new market research report, now available on ASDReports, The report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Semiconductor Production Equipment Market in South Korea: Advantest, Applied Materials, ASML, KLA-Tencor and Lam Research
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Charm Engineering, DI, DMS, Eugene Technology, Exicon, From 30, Global Standard Technology, Hanmi Semiconductor, Jusung Engineering, Kookje Electric Korea, Mirae, Mujin, NeonTech, Nikon Instruments, Semes, Sinseoung ENG, Teradyne, Tokyo Electron Korea and Wonik IPS
Commenting on the report, an analyst said: “The scaling of 10 nm nodes, in terms of development and operational costs, is high and not all semiconductor equipment manufacturers can afford it. The nature of tests involved in physics and material sciences are complex and require tests to be carried out a couple of times to get the desired results, thereby increasing the operational costs. However, one possibility of making the node scaling profitable is by adopting the 450 mm wafer size associated with a reduction in operational costs.”
According to the report, increase in applications of semiconductor chips and the assurance of high profits are driving the market. The application of semiconductor chips has expanded rapidly in industries such as power, energy, healthcare, electric cars, networking and telecommunications. These chips are also used in LED lighting, automotive, consumer applications, military aerospace and defense, motor control applications, and robotics industries.
Further, the report states that the short lifespan of the manufacturing equipment is a major challenge in the market. This is because the technology used in manufacturing semiconductor chips is constantly upgraded. Also, most semiconductor chip manufacturers require customized machines.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
