Research and Markets: Chemical Mechanical Planarization Market by Type, Application, Technology and Geography – Global Forecast to 2020

October 21, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Chemical Mechanical Planarization Market by type, Application, Technology and Geography – Global Forecast to 2020 “ report to their offering.

The global CMP market in 2014 was valued at USD 3.32 Billion and is estimated to reach USD 4.94 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.83% from 2015 to 2020. The major factors driving the growth of the CMP market during the forecast period are the growing need of CMP for wafer planarization, high demand for consumer electronic products, and increasing use of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).

The global CMP market based on types comprises CMP equipment and CMP consumables. The different CMP consumables included in this report are slurries, pads, and pad conditioners among the others. The demand for planarization in semiconductor devices would increase with an expanding number of end-use applications such as IC manufacturing, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), optics, compound semiconductors, and computer hard drive manufacturing.

This increasing global semiconductor sales and growing economic activities in Asia-Pacific and North America is providing opportunities to the CMP equipment manufacturers and consumable suppliers. Most of the manufacturers use leading-edge and more than Moore’s technologies for semiconductors wafer fabrication. Some of the prominent semiconductor manufacturers and majority of start-ups or new entrants frequently work on smaller wafer sizes (less than 200mm).
