Dublin, Nov. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Epitaxial Wafer Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global epitaxial wafer market size reached US$ 3.2 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the market is forecast to reach US$ 6.1 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 11.2% during 2023-2028.

The epitaxial wafer, also known as epi wafer, is a layer of epitaxial silicon single crystal deposited on a single crystal silicon wafer. It assists in controlling doping profiles that are not achievable through traditional methods like diffusion and ion implantation. It is used in diode and transistor elements and integrated circuit (IC) substrates, such as bipolar and metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS). It is also utilized in power devices and energy-saving of various power-sourced items. Apart from this, it finds extensive applications in smartphones, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), gyroscopes, laptops, tablets and gaming consoles across the globe.

Epitaxial Wafer Market Trends:

At present, there is a considerable rise in the demand for epitaxial wafers in consumer electronics, which enable higher electron mobility and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) devices. This represents one of the key factors strengthening the growth of the market. Moreover, there is an increase in the employment of epitaxial wafers in the automotive industry to track and control temperature, pressure, flow, and level through robots. This, coupled with the rising sales of autonomous and electric vehicles (EVs) and self-driving trucks and the burgeoning automotive sector around the world, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the increasing adoption of the internet of things (IoT) in epitaxial wafers due to their advanced applications is positively influencing the market. Besides this, the rising focus on reducing the consumption of electricity and the growing awareness about green technology among individuals are catalyzing the demand for epitaxial wafers. Additionally, governments of several countries are undertaking initiatives to promote the usage of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which is projected to offer lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors and end users.
