Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Systems Market 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Systems Market: Dainippon Screen Mfg. Co. Ltd., Lam Research Corp., Tokyo Electron Ltd., Akrion Systems LLC, K.C.Tech Co. Ltd., and SEMES Co. Ltd.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “In the current scenario, portable electronic devices, such as smartphones and tablets, are becoming obsolete within a short time span. This obsolescence is because of the rapid launches of next-version models by vendors. The duration of the replacement cycle period is 8-12 months. Previously, the replacement period used to be much higher, but due to this reduction in the time span of the product replacement cycle, the demand for semiconductor wafers for use in newly launched devices is expected to rise drastically”

According to the report, the rising demand for smartphones and tablets among consumers is the main growth driver for the market. The growing demand for these devices is primarily because of the increased adoption of these devices particularly in emerging markets. Therefore, this rising demand has created an increased demand for semiconductor wafers, thus driving the growth of the Global Semiconductor Wafer Cleaning Systems market.

Further, the report states that the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry is a prime challenge witnessed in the market. This has resulted in wafer cleaning equipment manufacturers often experiencing fluctuating revenues, which have adversely affected their profitability.

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are

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.
