The global semiconductor gases market had a market value of over USD 8,261.6 million in 2020. It is expected to grow to USD 12,450.3 million by 2027. This market is expected to grow at 6.4% over the forecast period. Market growth is expected to be boosted by the increasing use of semiconductor gases in the electrical and electronic industries. Market growth is also expected to be fueled by favourable government initiatives to support the semiconductor industry and the increasing demand for semiconductor gases to enable efficient semiconductor processing. Market players were adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many market players had to adapt their production plans and operations when the pandemic caused major shifts in demand for semiconductor end applications.
Increased use of semiconductor gases within the electronic and electrical industry
All electronic devices are built around semiconductors. Most electronics processing that involves gases is done in chambers or metal-walled reactions. In various manufacturing processes, semiconductor gases are used. Deposition uses argon and Helium, while fluorine (hydrogen chloride), Chlorine, xenon, and argon are used for photolithography. Carbon-based gases, fluorine & fluorine are used to etch; phosphine is used for doping, hydrogen, oxygen, and argon for annealing, as well as nitrogen trifluoride in chamber cleaning. Market growth is expected to be boosted by the increasing use of semiconductor gases in the electronic and electrical industries.
Encouragement from the government to support the semiconductor industry
Market growth is expected to be boosted by the growing semiconductor industry in emerging countries like India. According to India Electronics and Semiconductor Association, India’s semiconductor consumption was approximately USD 21 billion in 2019. The Government of India also increased the number of incentive schemes such as the Modified Special Incentive Package Scheme (Made-SIPS) or the Electronic Development Fund to USD 111 million in the Union Budget of India 2017-18. This fund was created to boost the semiconductor and electronics manufacturing industries. This fund is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
