Global Wafer Inspection Equipment Market Analysis, Growth
and Forecasts 2019 by Radiant Insights
Market overview of the wafer inspection equipment market
Wafer inspection equipment is a fab equipment used for the inspection of wafers during the process of
semiconductor wafer production to find out defects. This equipment is also used for R&D purposes. There is an
increasing demand for the application of semiconductor ICs in segments such as consumer electronics,
automobiles, and industrial sector that is prompting the vendors to raise its production, which will increase the
demand for wafer inspection equipment.
The growth in semiconductor market and the increasing complexity in the design of ICs will drive the market for
the semiconductor wafer inspection equipment market. Thus, the global wafer inspection equipment market is
expected to witness a remarkable growth, posting a CAGR of over 11% during the forecast period. Also, the
emergence of new and innovative technologies such as IoT, M2M, UHD TVs, hybrid laptops, and vehicle
automation are fuelling the demand for semiconductor ICs, which will thus produce the demand for
semiconductor wafers.

Segmentation by product and analysis of - patterned wafer and unpatterned wafer
As of 2014, the patterned wafer inspection market dominated the wafer inspection equipment market, accounting
for over 87% of the total market. The market for unpatterned wafer inspection equipment is small when compared
to patterned wafer inspection market because these equipment can only detect defects on only bare silicon
surface, hence the dominance of the patterned wafer inspection market.
This report offers an analysis of each of the following segments and discusses its impact on the overall market
