Silicon-on-Insulator Market Synopsis


Silicon-on-Insulator Market is estimated to reach USD 2,403.9 Million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 15.5% during the forecast period of 2020–2026.


Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) is a semiconductor component that comprises a thin layer of insulator inserted between single crystalline silicon and the bulk substrate. The insulator is generally made up of thermal silicon oxide (SiO2) and the substrate is a silicon wafer. Depending on the type of application, the silicon film can be very thin (< 50 nm for fully depleted transistors), or it can be tens of micrometers thick. There are three methods used in fabricating SOI wafers ­-- Bonded & Etchback SOI (BESOI), Separation by IMplantation of OXygen (SIMOX), and SmartCut. These processes can produce substrates possessing different characteristics in final products. Increasing adoption of electronic devices by consumers is driving the adoption of SOI wafers. The SOI wafers provide superior performance and require minimal voltage for its operation. These factors are expected to drive the Silicon-on-Insulator Market across the globe. Moreover, increasing the adoption of SOI technology in IoT devices and applications is expected to create opportunities for wafer manufacturers to develop wafers using this technology. However, a lack of skilled workforce is expected to disrupt the manufacturing of these wafers and therefore, hamper the Silicon-on-Insulator Market growth during the forecast period.
