High Investment Requirement May Pose a Challenge to Growth of Global Atomic Layer Deposition Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Atomic Layer Deposition Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Atomic Layer Deposition market to grow at a CAGR of 35.4 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the growing adoption of component miniaturization. The Global Atomic Layer Deposition market has also been witnessing the growing use of ALD in IC and non-IC applications. However, the need for high investment could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Engineering team said: "Atomic layer deposition is widely used in various IC applications in the Semiconductor and Electrical and Electronics industries. For instance, in the field of microelectronics, atomic layer deposition techniques are widely used in the manufacturing of MOSFET gate stacks, DRAM capacitors, non-volatile ferroelectric memories, metallization, passivation, magnetic recording heads, and interconnects. Atomic Layer Deposition equipment is also used in several non-IC applications such as protective coating, optical applications, MEMS, and NEMS. Also, the market is witnessing increasing adoption of atomic layer deposition technique in several emerging technologies such as photovoltaic, energy and phase change memory in microelectronics."

According to the report, with the rapid development of nanotechnology and other advanced technologies, several manufacturing companies are in the process of manufacturing nano-components for increased compatibility and greater efficiency. Therefore, the manufacturing companies across industries prefer atomic layer deposition technique to manufacture several smaller components.
