About the Semiconductor Deposition Market

Semiconductor deposition is a process or technique of depositing a thin layer of a material on the surface area of a wafer or substrate. The added layer acts as a conductor, an insulator barrier, or a customized surface on which the semiconductor device pattern is etched. Materials that are used for the deposition are silicon, filaments, silicon dioxide, carbon nanotubes, tungsten, silicon carbide, silicon oxynitride, carbon fiber, silicon nitride, titanium nitride, silicon-germanium, and a number of high-k dielectrics. The thickness of the deposited layer usually ranges from a few to around 100 nm. Certain deposition techniques such as molecular beam epitaxy involve the deposition of a single layer of atom on the surface of wafers at a time. However, in CVD technology, the wafer is exposed to one or more volatile precursors, which react or decompose on the surface to give the desired deposit.

Technavios analysts forecast the Global Semiconductor Deposition Market to grow at a CAGR of 16.03% during the period 2016-2020.
