Chemical Mechanical Planarization Market Business Opportunities Including Key Players by 2020

According to a new market research report on the Chemical Mechanical Planarization Market by type (Equipment & consumables), Application(IC manufacturing, MEMS & NEM, Optics and Others), Technology (Leading edge, More Than Moore’s, and Emerging), and Geography (North America, Europe, APAC and RoW) – Global Forecast to 2020″, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.83% between 2015 and 2020, and reach $4.94 Billion by 2020.


The global CMP market based on types comprises CMP equipment and CMP consumables. The different CMP consumables included in this report are slurries, pads, and pad conditioners among the others. The demand for planarization in semiconductor devices would increase with an expanding number of end-use applications such as IC manufacturing, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), optics, compound semiconductors, and computer hard drive manufacturing. This increasing global semiconductor sales and growing economic activities in Asia-Pacific and North America is providing opportunities to the CMP equipment manufacturers and consumable suppliers. Most of the manufacturers use leading-edge and more than Moore’s technologies for semiconductors wafer fabrication. Some of the prominent semiconductor manufacturers and majority of start-ups or new entrants frequently work on smaller wafer sizes (less than 200 mm).
