Global market for Semiconductor Fabrication Material is projected to reach US$33.3 billion by 2018, driven by steady increase in IC fabrication activity in response to growing demand for electronic devices. Demand for semiconductor fabrication material is largely tied to the health of the semiconductor industry, which in turn is largely influenced by the demand for electronics. Demand patterns in major downstream markets such as computers, communications equipment, digital home appliances, and industrial electronics influences IC fabrication activity. Growing demand for electronic chip fabrication as a result of increasing production of mobile computing devices such as notebooks, smartphones and tablet PCs, is therefore benefiting growth in the semiconductor fabrication material market. While consumer electronics and appliances remain the primary driver of growth, emerging applications in automotive electronics, medical device electronics, defense and aerospace electronics, including state-of-the-art weaponry, are poised to fuel future growth in the market.
