New Forecast Report on Global Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition Market

Published on May 29, 2013 at 5:31 AM

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

The analysts of the report forecast Global Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition market to grow at a CAGR of 18.6 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing demand for LEDs in the lighting applications. Global Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition market has also been witnessing a gradual shift to six-inch wafers and sapphire substrates.

Key vendors dominating this space include AIXTRON SE, Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corp., and Veeco Instruments Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the Hardware team said: ''The LED manufacturers in China use two-inch wafers in the LED fabrication process, while the LED manufacturers in Taiwan and Japan use four-inch wafers. The MOCVD vendors are focusing on increasing the yield of the MOCVD equipment by introducing six-inch wafers. Moreover, the MOCVD vendors are introducing sapphire substrates as an alternative to the traditional silicon substrates in the MOCVD process. With the introduction of six-inch wafers and sapphire substrates, the vendors are looking to double the chip amount of every wafer, thereby significantly reducing the customer's cost per wafer fabrication. Thus, the gradual shift to six-inch wafers and sapphire substrates is a positive trend that is expected to benefit the Global MOCVD market.''

According to the report, one of the main drivers of this market is the increase in applications for LEDs, which are the end-products that are manufactured through the MOCVD process. The increased focus on power conservation by government authorities worldwide and the phasing out of incandescent bulbs have increased the demand for LEDs.
