Some of the major players operating in this market are

  • Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd.,
  • Siltronic AG,
  • GlobalWafers Japan Co. Ltd. and others.

Silicon on insulator is a fabrication technique that mainly uses pure form of crystal silicon and silicon oxide for microchips and integrated circuits. This technology also uses layered silicon–insulator–silicon substrate in place of conventional silicon substrates which are applicable for manufacturing of semiconductors. This technology is having many applications in SOI wafers, high performance radio frequency, microelectronics and photonics.

Silicon on insulator technology was majorly introduced in 1978 due to its high speed, low power usage and its great immunity to latch up. They are also widely employed in microprocessors and RF signal processors. These used in the manufacturing of micro electro mechanical systems or MEMS technology. The main appealing factor of this technology is that it contains an insulating layer that results in shielding of micro devices.

The demand for semiconductors is driving the market. Semiconductors are usually the substance, a solid chemical element or compound, which can conduct the electricity in only certain conditions. Semiconductors are utilized to make the advance electronic equipment, which include high-volume consumer electronic devices. Growth in the usage of cutting-edge devices such as smartphones, tablets, electric cars and wearable devices is driving the growth of semiconductors. Semiconductors are made from various materials including silicon, carbon, germanium and others.

Global silicon on insulator market is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 8.9% in the forecast period of 2019 to 2026.
