Executive Summary
The evolution of semiconductor industry in the past decade has led to various technological advancements in applications such as automotive, manufacturing, and consumer electronics, among others.The growth in these application sectors can be attributed to the impending use of integrated circuit (IC) or chip consisting of transistors, sensors, and actuators, among others.

Since a chip consists of a number of transistors, the use of transistors in a particular application area is essential.The advent of metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) led to the production of many compact and efficient devices.

However, the reduced channel length between the source and drain led to higher current leakage and gave rise to short channel effects such as surface scattering, velocity saturation, and hot electron effect, among others.This gave rise to the evolution of FinFET technology capable of overcoming the abovementioned barriers.

The FinFET technology witnessed a major increase in adoption rate for the usage in integrated circuits (ICs) due to several advancements in the technology such as superior levels of scalability, and advantages in terms of IC processing. The principle on which FinFET technology works is similar to that of conventional MOSFET. A major characteristic of FinFET is that the conducting channel is wrapped by a fin, which forms the main body of the device.

The global FinFET market is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period (2018-2023) registering a CAGR of 16.10%. This growth in the FinFET technology market is due to the increasing IC industry which is providing ample growth opportunities to the FinFET technology market. Additionally, this high growth is also supported by the growing demand of smartphones from consumers, requiring enhanced processors which improves day-to-day functioning. However, designing challenges for the designers and higher wafer cost and gate cost of FinFET in comparison to FD-SOI are restraining the overall growth of the global FinFET technology market.
