Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ntp3gb/global_thin_film) has announced the addition of the "Global Thin Film Metrology Systems Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global Thin Film Metrology Systems market to grow at a CAGR of 5% percent over the period 2013-2018.
One of the major trends emerging in the Global Thin Film Metrology Systems market is the increased R&D spending by the market vendors. Vendors such as Rudolph, KLA-Tencor, Nanometrics, and Nova Measuring Instruments have already invested a considerable amount of time and money in their R&D departments for the expansion of their product portfolios. They are also increasingly investing in their R&D divisions to provide enhanced functionality and to meet the unsatisfied requirements of end-consumers. The R&D investments have enabled them to capture a significant market share and gain a competitive edge over the other vendors in the market.
According to the report, the high demand for thin film metrology systems for the development of flat panel displays is an important driver. These systems are used for measuring the thin films used in the flat panel displays of portable mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and e-readers.
Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in this market is the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry. The Semiconductor industry is one of the major end-users of thin film metrology systems, and any fluctuations in this industry inevitably leads to fluctuations in the Global Thin Film Metrology Systems market.
Key vendors dominating this space include:
- Nanometrics Inc.
- Nova Measuring Instruments
- KLA-Tencor Corp.
- Rudolph Technologies Inc.
