Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market Segment Analysis – By Geography 

APAC region is estimated to account for the largest Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market share at 44.8% during the forecast period owing to rise of electronic equipment production. Due to the extensive on-going migration of various electrical equipment and the existence of local component manufacturers, China is recognized as the region's leading country. The market in North America is expected to grow at a rapid pace, owing to rising R&D spending. The shutdown, particularly in China will have significant impact on semiconductor production, which will drive up lead times. A report states that, in 2019, China accounted for over 50% of worldwide semiconductor consumption. Disruption in China will likely have a significant impact on companies across the globe and up and down the electronics and semiconductor value chain. COVID-19 is having a large impact on both consumers as well as Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment companies. As of mid-2020, travel restrictions particularly in China as well as across the APAC and European markets are significantly limiting the semiconductor industry. In addition, critical electronics manufacturing hubs were temporarily shut down to limit COVID-19’s spread in China as well as across the globe. This confluence of events is hitting the global supply chain, impacting primarily suppliers due to shortages of materials, components, and finished goods for which companies are significantly dependent on China. The consumers are also being impacted through reduced spending in China on semiconductor-dependent products. This spending has significantly reduced in China as well as across the global markets. Allied industries such as automotive and consumer electronics are the primary sources of demand reduction.

Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market Drivers 

Increase in Utilization of Consumer Electronics across the world drives the growth

Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market- Challenges 

Complexity of Supply Chain Driven by Changing Functionality of Chipsets is creating challenges for this market

The Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market is being held back by the constantly changing functionality of semiconductor chips and the unique demands of end-users from various industries. The factors such as Power efficiency, unrealistic schedules, and cost-down considerations are hindering the Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment Market analysis. The supply chain stability has also taken a nosedive in recent years. The rapidly evolving environment in the semiconductor sector is plagued by different problems such as enhancing revenue growth and profitability, delivering new products that match customer requirements, and ability to manage global operations effectively. This has created significant bottlenecks in component manufacturing and procurement that has raised supply chain issues even prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. The front end (FE) cycle Times are typically much higher than back end (BE) cycle times. The typical production period of the Front-End cycle is typically 6-8 weeks, whereas back-end cycle times are much lower at 1-2 weeks only. This results in complex differing inventory requirements at different production processes, which needs additional planning and tracking. The lack of planning, frequent changes in functionality of chipsets, supply chain disruption as well as slow implementation of technology are the major challenges of this industry.
