Silicon Wafer Reclaim Market Overview


The global silicon wafer reclaim market was valued at USD 502.50 million in 2018, and it is expected to grow at a higher CAGR of 16.55% in the global market during the forecasted period to account for a higher market share value of approximately USD 1254.05 million by the end of the forecasted period.


The process of transformation of a used wafer into a qualification wager using multiple layers of different material is called silicon wafer reclaim. This process is a multi-step process as it required multiple layers of materials. Also, it requires various steps in transforming like inspection, cleaning, polishing, grinding and lapping, stripping, and sorting. It is a combination of wet chemical processing and mechanical planarization for removing coatings of semiconductors.


COVID 19 Analysis Of Silicon Wafer Reclaim Market


The global pandemic of COVID 19 has affected a major chunk of the population. Many people have lost their livelihood because of this global pandemic.
