Die bonding, alternatively known as die attaching is the process of bonding or attaching a chip either to a package or to some substrate. Thus, die bonder equipment is used extensively in the fabrication process of semiconductor devices. Die bonder equipment performs various functions including picking the die from waffle tray or wafer and attaching it to the substrate. The most commonly used technique of die bonding is to push the targeted die from the tape with the help of a pin. Die bonding process is accomplished by using various techniques including eutectic bonding, soldering, adhesive bonding and glass /silver-glass bonding. The market of die bonder equipment market across the globe is expected to experience a stable growth during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025 owing to the rapid growth of the semiconductor industry.
Rising demand of semiconductor ICs (Integrated Circuits) is one of the most important factor anticipated to accelerate the demand of die bonder equipment in the coming years. Increasing demand of electronic systems with the expanding number of various end-use applications is the key factor anticipated to provide the stimulus for rising demand of ICs. This in turn is expected to trigger the market growth of die bonder equipment across the globe. Additionally, emerging market for latest technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), UHD TVs (Ultra High Definition Television) and hybrid laptops is further expected to propel the demand for semiconductor ICs in the coming years, which in turn is predicted to fuel the requirement of various die bonder equipment. Moreover, increasing trend towards automation in automobiles is another important factor anticipated to generate huge demand of ICs required for various functions such as ABS, airbag control, GPS, car navigation and display, power doors and windows and automated driving among others. This in turn, is expected to propel the need for innovative and advanced packaging techniques such as die bonders.
