High Demand for CMP Slurries to Manufacture Semiconductors to Drive Global Market

Chemical mechanical polishing is deemed to be the most critical step in semiconductor manufacturing. While material removal is one of the core applications of CMP, CMP is increasingly being used in a range of applications, including defect reduction, uniformity control, and surface smoothening of semiconductors– a factor that is expected to aid the growth of the global CMP slurry market during the assessment period. The semiconductor yield improvement is primarily influenced by CMP processing due to which, the demand for CMP slurry is anticipated to remain high throughout the course of the assessment period. Market players are expected to increasingly focus on improving the performance of the CMP by minimizing surface scratching and other key parameters to gain a competitive edge in the current market for CMP slurry.

The increasing deployment of CMP as a polishing technique to smoothen the surface of various semiconductor devices is projected to fuel the growth of the global CMP slurry market. The CMP slurry has a strong influence on the uniformity, defect rate, removal rate, and the rate of selectivity between barrier layers and metal. This factor is likely to drive the CMP slurry market during the forecast period. In addition, the increasing usage of CMP as an enabling technology in the fabrication of different integrated circuits is expected to positively impact the demand for CMP slurries. Market players are projected to focus on the development of CMP slurries that are in line with various conventional as well as tailored applications of their customers.

COVID-19 Impact: Slump in Demand for Consumer Electronics to Hinder Market Growth

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a moderate impact on the overall growth prospects of the global CMP slurry market during the assessment period. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the demand as well as the production of CMP slurry witnessed a major decline, particularly in the second and the third quarter of 2023. Shortage of labor, closure of the industrial sector across various regions around the world, and restrictions on transportation and cross-border trade played a key role in hindering the growth of the CMP slurry market. However, market players are expected to tap into opportunities across the healthcare devices sector during the forecast period.

Market players are also anticipated to focus on product development and research activities during the ongoing health crisis and aim to improve their market presence in the COVID-190-free era. For instance, UBmaterials announced that the company has developed a CMP slurry that can be used for CMP in chip production.

CMP Slurries Enabling Technology Status to Aid Growth: A Key Driver of CMP Slurry Market

  • Cost reduction and scaling have continued to drive the need for novel technologies, designs, and device architectures such as 3D NAND and 3D FinFETs where CMP has become the key enabler to facilitate these technologies. Therefore, Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) is considered an enabling technology in integrated circuit (IC) manufacturing.
  • CMP is a unique technology that allows chip manufacturers to undertake some of the most complex and critical patterning steps. CMP has revolutionized the manufacturing and processing of high-technology semiconductors.
  • Thus, the industrial use of CMP slurry is anticipated to grow at a steady pace in both traditional and new segments
  • Increasing demand for CMP slurry technology in the global semiconductor sector is projected to have a positive impact on the global CMP slurry market during the forecast period
  • The semiconductor industry is changing constantly with manufacturers developing newer products that are smaller, faster, and cheaper. Smaller the product, higher its manufacturing costs, for which capital expenditure costs remain high. With rising development costs, key focus of semiconductor manufacturers should be toward channeling their funds in R&D more efficiently. This, along with consistent differentiation of their products, further helps in yielding better return on investment (ROI). This factor is projected to have a moderately negative impact on the global CMP slurry market during the forecast period.
