Semiconductor Bonding Market Overview:


The global semiconductor bonding market size was valued at USD ~ 865.7 million in 2020 and is expected to register a CAGR of ~3.11% from 2021 to 2027


Market Snapshot:


Semiconductors, such as Silicon (Si), are atoms linked together in a regular, periodic pattern to produce an arrangement in which each atom is surrounded by eight electrons. A covalent connection exists between the electrons that surround each atom in a semiconductor. A covalent bond is formed when two atoms share a pair of electrons. Each atom creates four covalent connections with the four atoms around it. As a result, eight electrons are shared between each atom and its four neighboring atoms. Semiconductor bonding is used to construct composite 3D structures, cavities, and closed fluid channels that are mechanically robust and capable of providing strong electrical contact. It is critical to bind two or more micro-components firmly.


The market is expected to witness significant growth due to the growing demand for miniature electronic components, increasing adoption of stacked die technology in IoT devices, and rising demand for electric and hybrid vehicles. The high cost of ownership hampered the market growth. However, increasing demand for 3D semiconductor assembly and packaging and the growing adoption of IoT and AI in the automotive sector create an opportunity for semiconductor bonding vendors.


Impact of COVID- 19 on market:


The semiconductor sector focuses on safeguarding the health and safety of its employees, helping to battle the virus. Semiconductors are at the core of many innovative technologies being utilized to combat the global health problem. During the COVID-19 epidemic, production facilities in the semiconductors sector were suspended owing to lockdown measures, a shortage of worker availability, and a disruption in the supply chain, affecting demand for semiconductor bonding equipment. With the emergence of COVID-19, the number of healthcare facilities has expanded to cope with the increasing number of patients around the world. This has raised the demand for energy-efficient LED lighting solutions in healthcare institutions, which will drive for the market of semiconductor bonding equipment. LED lighting is extensively utilized in commercial and industrial areas because it has several benefits such as energy efficiency, decreased heat emission, cost-effectiveness, and millisecond switching capabilities. The use of thin wafers in LED devices has several advantages, including low power consumption.

  • Drivers

    • Increasing adoption of stacked die technology in IoT devices




The stacked die is a newer technology gaining acceptance in a range of electronics applications. In stacking die, one bare chip is placed on top of another, or a spacer is used instead of a bare chip, and then another chip is placed on top of those, and a third one, and so on. Sets of many rows of wire bonding loops are arranged, each going to a different die or spacer. This kind of circuitry arrangement is used to save costly PCB space. The majority of silicon die is packaged in a wide range of containers. The package protects the die and wire bonding while also providing an interface to broader PCB designs. Much of the field of the Internet of Things (IoT) necessitates features that approach the stacked die technique. The stacking die reduces the overall size of the final design. One of the primary reasons for the extensive use of stacked die approach is handheld electronic gadgets. Hence, the increasing adoption of stacked die technology in IoT devices is attributed to the increasing demand for semiconductor bonding solutions.



  • Restraints

    • High cost of ownership




The high cost and difficulty of designing semiconductors chips at the most advanced nodes are prompting many chipmakers to start splitting that chip down into several sections, not all of which require leading-edge nodes. When a complicated system is integrated monolithically on a single piece of silicon, the end output is a compromise between the thermal budget restrictions of the a component of a device. Semiconductor bonding equipment is sophisticated machinery that requires a high input power to execute die-attach operations. The power required by this equipment ranges from hundreds to thousands of watts. The manufacturing cost of semiconductor bonding equipment is likewise relatively high due to sophisticated and costly components. Assembling many large and tiny elements, including the screen, bonding hand, vacuum, sensors, and heat source, is very expensive. As a result, the overall manufacturing and ownership costs of die bonder equipment for semiconductor bonding are relatively high. Furthermore, the high price of semiconductor wafers raises the operational cost of semiconductor bonding, stifling industry development.
