Research and Markets: LED Front-End Equipment Market 2014-2020: Main Trends and Industry Per Process Step and Market Metrics
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mjzttf/led_frontend)
has announced the addition of the "LED
Front-End Equipment Market" report to their offering.
The equipment market will peak at nearly $580M in 2015 with MOCVD
reactors representing more than 80% of the business
Driven by the fanfare over (and overestimation of) the LCD display
market, the LED Front-End equipment market experienced an unprecedented
investment cycle in 2010-2011. The market surge was driven mostly by
MOCVD reactor shipments to new Chinese entrants, who benefited from the
generous subsidies of the Chinese central and local governments in a bid
to stimulate domestic chip production.
Following a 18-24 month diestion period, the market is now slowly
recovering and will experience another investment cycle in 2014-2016
driven by demand for general lighting applications.
However, this 2nd cycle will be limited in value due to:
- Improvement in equipment throughput and yields
- Increased competition
- Potential consolidation of the industry
Indeed, LED manufacturers initially relied on old semiconductor systems
designed for other applications. Now that the industry has reached a
critical size, several LED-dedicated equipment (that take into account
the specificities of LED manufacturing) has been commercialized.
As a result, the equipment market will peak at nearly $580M in 2015 with
MOCVD reactors representing more than 80% of the business: the bulk of
these reactors are still being shipped to Chinese manufacturers or
Taiwanese players transitioning to 4 diameters. Lithography, plasma
etching, PECVD and PVD equipment will follow a similar trend.
