Analysis of the development of the global large-size semiconductor wafer market in 2021

semiconductor silicon wafers can be divided into 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 150mm, 200mm and 300mm according to different sizes. At present, more than 90% of the world’s semiconductor wafers are large-sized wafers, and the most mainstream semiconductor wafer size is 300mm.

The main reason for the large size of semiconductor silicon wafers is that the larger the size of the silicon wafer, the higher the utilization efficiency, the more chips that can be manufactured on a single silicon wafer, and the lower the cost per chip.

Since the establishment of the world’s first 300mm chip manufacturing production line in 2000, the global 300mm semiconductor silicon wafer shipment area has continued to rise. According to IC Insights’ forecast, by 2021, the number of manufacturers that can mass-produce 300mm semiconductor silicon wafers will reach 123, and the proportion of global 300mm semiconductor silicon wafer production capacity is expected to continue to expand in the future.

Main listed companies in the monocrystalline silicon industry: At present, the listed companies in the domestic monocrystalline silicon industry mainly include LONGi Co., Ltd. (601012), Zhonghuan Co., Ltd. (002129), Shanghai CNC (603185), Zhonghe Technology (000925), Beijing Express (601908) , JA Solar (002459), etc.

The core data of this article: the global semiconductor silicon wafer shipment area ratio, the global 300mm semiconductor silicon wafer shipment area and the number of manufacturers, and the global semiconductor silicon wafer production capacity ratio of various sizes

1. 300mm semiconductor silicon wafer is the most mainstream

Semiconductor silicon wafers can be divided into 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 150mm, 200mm and 300mm according to different sizes. At present, more than 90% of the world’s semiconductor wafers are large-sized wafers, and the most mainstream semiconductor wafer size is 300mm.

According to SEMI data, as of 2019, the global 300mm semiconductor silicon wafer shipment area accounted for 67.2% of the total semiconductor silicon wafer shipment area.

The main reason for the large size of semiconductor silicon wafers is that the larger the size of the silicon wafer, the higher the utilization efficiency, the more chips that can be manufactured on a single silicon wafer, and the lower the cost per chip. Under the same process conditions, the usable area of ​​a 300mm semiconductor wafer is more than twice that of a 200mm wafer.

2. The shipment area of ​​300mm semiconductor wafers is increasing year by year

Therefore, due to the consideration of cost efficiency, since the world’s first 300mm chip manufacturing production line was built in 2000, the global 300mm semiconductor silicon wafer shipment area has continued to rise. According to SEMI statistics, from 2016 to 2019, the shipment area of ​​300mm semiconductor wafers increased from 6.817 billion square feet to 7.93 billion square feet.

3. The proportion of 300mm semiconductor wafer production capacity will be further expanded

Due to the large size of semiconductor wafers, the number of 300mm semiconductor wafer manufacturers has also increased. According to IC Insights’ forecast, by 2021, the number of manufacturers that can mass produce 300mm semiconductor silicon wafers will reach 123.

With the increase in the number of 300mm semiconductor wafer manufacturers, the proportion of global 300mm semiconductor wafer production capacity is expected to continue to expand in the future. According to IC Insights, the global 300mm semiconductor wafer production capacity is expected to account for 71.2% in 2021.
