Silicon wafer reclaim refers to prime wafer that can be reprocessed and re-polished for different uses. They employ multi-step procedures, such as sorting, stripping, polishing, lapping, grinding, cleaning, and inspection. As compared to conventional wafers, silicon wafers are thinner in size, offer better performance and are more cost-effective as they can be repurposed. Consequently, they are used to produce microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), optoelectronic devices, solar and photoelectric cells and integrated circuits. At present, silicon wafers reclaim are commercially categorized based on their varying diameter types. Silicon Wafer Reclaim Market Trends:
The global silicon wafer reclaim market is majorly being driven by a significant expansion in the electronics sector, along with the increasing demand for various consumer electronics, including smartphones, laptops, and desktops. In line with this, silicon wafer reclaim is widely incorporated in semiconductors and microchips, which are further adopted to manufacture integrated circuits, solar cells, and photoelectric cells to ensure high operational efficiency, while decreasing the production costs. Additionally, the rising environmental concerns have prompted governments of various nations to undertake several initiatives that promote solar installations, which, in turn, is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, rapid technological innovations, such as the introduction of advanced processing solutions that aid in mitigating the risk of defect formation in silicon wafers is also inflating the overall product sales across the globe. Moreover, the shifting inclination of manufacturers toward larger sizes of silicon wafer as it enables the fabrication of multiple chips on a single wafer, is positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, such as continuous investments in research and development (R&D) activities, along with frequent mergers and acquisitions (M&A) amongst key players to launch simplified reclaiming methodologies to overcome production process complexities, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
