Research and Markets: Global Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market 2011-2015 with LG Siltron Inc., MEMC Electronic Materials Inc., Shin-Etsu Handotai Co. Ltd Dominating


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Semiconductor Silicon Wafer Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Semiconductor Silicon Wafer market to grow at a CAGR of 5.23 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the capacity expansion by the semiconductor manufacturers. The Global Semiconductor Silicon Wafer market has also been witnessing the increasing adoption of mobile devices worldwide. However, seasonality in demand of semiconductors could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this market space include LG Siltron Inc., MEMC Electronic Materials Inc., Shin-Etsu Handotai Co. Ltd., Siltronic AG, and SUMCO Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Hardware team said: ''The regular introduction of electronic devices by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the end-user market is expected to create a demand for components to enhance the functionalities of their offerings. Because of such factors, the Global Semiconductor market is expected to witness rapid technological advancements in the next few years, which in turn will compel semiconductor silicon wafer manufacturers to upgrade themselves such that their products meet the expectations of their technologically advanced customers.''

According to the report, one of the main growth drivers is the expansion of manufacturing capacity by semiconductor manufacturers to meet the growing demand for technologically advanced electronic devices.

Further, the report discusses that one of the main challenges the market faces is the seasonality in demand for semiconductors as a result of the bull-whip effect on the supply chain.
