Report : North America Sapphire Substrate Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Wafer Diameter (2 Inches, 4 Inches, 6 Inches, and Others) and Application [LED, RFIC Application, Laser Diode, Silicon on Sapphire (SoS) IC, and Others]
At 6.2% CAGR, the North America Sapphire Substrate Market is speculated to be worth US$ 496.07 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights
According to Business Market Insights’ research, the North America sapphire substrate market was valued at US$ 329.47 million in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 496.07 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 6.2% from 2021 to 2028. Widening uptake of silicon-on-sapphire microelectronic circuits and raising demand for sapphire substrate in LED applications.
The growing demand for silicon-on-sapphire microelectronic circuits has been propelling the sapphire substrate market significantly. It is the way of developing a monocrystal Si film on sapphire wafers crystal face (1-102), known as the heterogeneous extension method. It then develops semiconductor devices on monocrystal Si film. It has the same thermal expansion coefficient as the monocrystalline Si. These Silicon Sapphire Substrate has incased the usage of microelectronics and optoelectronics technologies. Sapphire usage for wafers has also helped in reducing the overall cost of larger wafers at relatively low rate. Currently, high quality GaN crystals can overgrow on sapphire wafer with the significant rise of growth technology. The (0001) sapphire surface has become the most ideal application of the substrate. The increasing demand for silicon-on-sapphire circuits can be credited to several benefits, such as high speed, low power consumption, and resistance to radiation. Additionally, silicon-on-sapphire microelectronics circuits are broadly utilized in developing high frequency and high-speed radio communication, smartphones, desktop computers, small satellite, laptops, and aerospace industry applications. These factors and rising usage among various industries has positive impact on the sapphire substrate market.
On the contrary, fabrication of high resolution in sapphire nanostructures.
