Pune, Feb. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Market Analysis
The global SOI market is highly lucrative and predicted to witness significant growth at a healthy 15.5% CAGR over the forecast period (2020- 2026), reveals the Market Research Future (MRFR) report. SOI or silicon on insulator is a semiconductor component that has a thin insulator layer that is put between the bulk substrate and single crystalline silicon. Generally, the insulator is made of thermal silicon oxide, and the substrate is basically a silicon wafer. The silicon film depending on the application type, can be very thin or tens of micrometers thick. Silicon on Insulator Market can be fabricated using three methods such as SmartCut, separation by implantation of oxygen (SIMOX), and bonded and etchback SOI (BESOI).
Attractive Features that Fuel Market Growth
As per the Market Research Future report, there are numerous factors that are propelling the silicon insulator market share. These include the growing awareness of the different benefits of silicon on insulators such as ease in scaling, compatibility, absence of latchup, reduced leakage, power saving, and high performance, increasing use of SOI wafers in consumer electronics, improvement in operational performance with low operating voltage, growing investments by foundry players and wafer manufacturers in emerging economies, and increasing demand for low power and high performance among electronics devices. Besides, the growing need for gaming consoles, microprocessors, and microcontrollers, major application in smartphones, digital cameras, and notebooks, increasing use in satellite communication due to the broadening of communication bandwidth exponential, increasing adoption in aerospace and military, increasing investment to reduce carbon footprint, and increasing development of photovoltaic technology are also adding market growth.
On the contrary, the self-heating effects of SOI-based devices, the higher time needed in the manufacturing process, price volatility, the soaring price of raw materials, and intricate design during product development may impede market growth over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 crisis has cast its shadow on almost every industry, with the silicon on insulator market being no different. The impact of this crisis on the manufacturing industry has impacted the global economy significantly. Electronic components like ICs, LED chips and wafers, PCBs, and other semiconductor devices are imported from China mostly. Following the shutdown of manufacturing units, the cost of semiconductor components has gone up due to a shortage of supplies.
The outbreak, however, is likely to accelerate automation as well as industry 4.0 technology adoption. Maintenance, diagnostics, and remote manufacturing may become permanent features. If this happens, semiconductor companies may turn into smart workplaces with technologies that facilitate remote work or work from home for most employees. The companies are also likely to use and encourage hybrid models in the manufacturing process where some employees remain on-site and some work remotely. The efficiency gained from these changes and their start-up costs may influence the growth of the silicon on insulator revenues in the future.
