Atomic layer deposition (ALD) refers to the process of deposition of precursor materials on substrates for improving or modifying properties such as chemical resistance, strength, and conductivity. The process is considered a sub-division of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) in atomic layer deposition. Usually, two chemicals are utilized for the reaction, generally called precursors.
Europe Atomic Layer Deposition Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail below:
- HIGH DEMAND FOR MICROELECTRONICS AND CONSUMER ELECTRONICS
Microelectronics is a process of manufacturing electronic components at the microscopic level. The microelectronics market is rapidly growing due to the demand for inexpensive and lightweight equipment. Microelectronics components include transistors, capacitors, diodes, resistors, inductors, and others. All these electronic components are used to manufacture mobile phones, laptops, electronic toys, and others.
- RAISING CONCERN ON ENERGY HARVESTING RESULTS IN HIGH GROWTH OF PHOTOVOLTAIC (PV) CELLS
Photovoltaic (PV) is commonly called an energy harvesting technology, and the technology is used to convert solar energy into electric energy, which is electricity. The demand for photovoltaic cells has been increasing due to the relatively low price and wide range of applications such as solar traffic lights, solar power pumps, solar lamps, solar power calculators, and others.
- HIGH INITIAL INVESTMENT COSTS
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is the deposition of precursor materials on substrates to improve/modify properties such as conductivity, chemical resistance, and strength. To provide ALD services, the provider has to buy equipment for the atomic layer deposition process, such as Cambridge NanoTech Fiji F200 Atomic Layer Deposition System, Open Load ALD System: OpAL, ALD 200L Series from Kurt J. Lesker Company, Cambridge NanoTech Savannah Series Atomic Layer Deposition System, Plasma & Thermal ALD System: FlexAL, Ion Beam Deposition System: IonFab IBD and Cambridge NanoTech Savannah Series Atomic Layer Deposition System.
The price of each piece of equipment is around USD 10000, and the provider must buy all equipment to provide all types of atomic layer deposition services. The cost of equipment would be very high to provide all types of atomic layer deposition services. Thus, many buyers will avoid buying due to the high cost compared to regular furniture.
- TREND OF MINIATURIZATION
Miniaturization is the process of manufacturing the smallest mechanical, electronic, and optical devices. In other words, it is a process of making electronic devices smaller. Miniaturization is in trend because everyone wants smaller, compacted, more portable devices. Now nanotechnology has the potential to transform the molecular beam into nano-devices (functional). This is a big step toward miniaturization.
- ALTERNATIVES OF ATOMIC LAYER DEPOSITION
The chemical vapor deposition process is widely used to produce high-quality, high-performance thin films. The chemical vapor deposition process is commonly used in the semiconductor industry. On the other hand, physical vapor deposition (PVD) is a method used to produce thin films and coatings with high temperature, high strength, excellent abrasion resistance, and others. Chemical vapor deposition and physical vapor deposition can be used as alternatives to atomic layer deposition due to the below advantages over atomic layer deposition.
- Chemical vapor deposition has a higher deposition rate than atomic layer deposition
- In chemical vapor deposition, deposit material is hard to evaporate
- The physical vapor deposition process can operate in low temperatures as compared to atomic layer deposition
- Physical vapor deposition can control the chemical composition
- In 2020, AIXTRON was leading the MOCVD equipment. The AIXTRON contributes 58% of the Europe market share for MOCVD equipment. The AMEC (China), with 16%, and Veeco (U.S.), with 26%, contribute the remaining segment share. The Europe market share is around USD 438 million for MOCVD equipment in the year 2020.
- In December 2021, Tokyo Electron Limited developed its product for a plasma etch system called Tactras-UDEMAE. This new product development will help the company satisfy the high demand for power and discrete devices. The etch technology is important in manufacturing these products, and the Tactras-UDEMAE is increasing the performance of etch system to increase productivity.
