Research and Markets: Concise Analysis of the International Rapid Thermal Processing Equipment Market

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m5hp36/global_rapid) has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Rapid Thermal Processing Equipment Market" report to their offering.

Semiconductor manufacturers continuously innovate in order to sustain competition, reduce manufacturing costs, and improve product efficiency. For instance, the chip features have reduced from 45nm to 22nm; DRAM memory manufacturers have shifted to 3x node production with development for 2x node devices, chips with high dielectric constant materials, and fin-fet or tri-gate transistors.

All these innovations by the customers require highly complicated rapid thermal processing equipment. Thus, the increasing number of innovations by the semiconductor manufacturers will tend to increase the demand for rapid thermal processing equipment.

One of the major drivers in the market is the increasing adoption of mobile devices. Over the past decade, there has been an unprecedented growth in the adoption of mobile devices. The market for portable devices such as cell phones, smartphones, notebook PCs, tablets, ultrabooks, and PDAs has been increasing among consumers. This increased demand for mobile devices is leading to a consequential rise in the demand for semiconductor process control systems, as it is vital for the functioning of mobile devices.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in the market is the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry. This has resulted in fluctuations in the demand for rapid thermal processing equipment. The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry.
