The global semiconductor equipment market is segmented on the basis of
product type, application, equipment, end use, and region. Among product
type, semiconductor front-end equipment segment held the dominant
position in the market in 2017, owing to its ability to perform
lithography, surface preparation, deposition, etching, inspection, ion
implant, and thermal processing for manufacturing of semiconductor

Among end-use, mobile handset segment held the dominant position in the
market in 2017, and is expected to retain its position throughout the
forecast period. Growing demand for the consumer electronics market,
particularly from the mobile phone and PC markets, as well as high
capital investments from leading chip manufacturers, such as SK Hynix,
Samsung, and SMIC are expected to drive growth of the semiconductor
equipment during the forecast period. For instance, the semiconductor
equipment in India is driven by increased adoption of mobile phones, and
increasing profusion of things such as household appliances,
audio-visual equipment or automobiles industry. The country has become
more prosperous, and as more people are able to afford these kinds of
devices, which in turn is increasing utilization of semiconductor

Asia Pacific held dominant position in the global semiconductor
equipment market in 2017, and is projected to maintain its dominance
during the forecast period, owing to growing demand for consumer
electronics and integration of semiconductor equipment into devices
across various sectors such as industrial, automotive, military,
communications, etc. in the region. For instance, in December 2017,
Canon Inc., one of the Japanese optical products company, announced that
Company has commenced sales of a “200 mm option” for the FPA-5550iZ2
i-line1 and the FPA-6300ES6a KrF2 semiconductor lithography equipment.
These two systems are prominent for their ability to produce logic,
memory and image sensor devices required for IoT as well as automotive
technologies. This will enable Canon Inc. to respond even more quickly
to the demands of the market and customers, helping the company to
attain sustainable medium- to long-term growth.

Moreover, growth in semiconductor equipment has been propelled by
consumer electronics assembled for export, China’s domestic consumption
represents an increasing share of China’s semiconductor equipment
market. Domestic consumption is driven by data processing and
communications applications sectors, with consumer electronics.
