Industry Overview of Silicon on Insulator

Silicon on insulator (SOI) is a manufacturing technique for microchips and semiconductor devices, where thin layers of single-crystalline silicon are placed on an insulator to simplify integrated circuit (IC) fabrication. This approach reduces junction capacitance, leading to faster speeds, prevents charge leakage, and optimizes the performance of SOI-based devices, all while keeping power consumption to a minimum. These advantageous characteristics make SOI widely used in the production of various consumer electronics, radio frequency (RF) signal processors, microprocessors, biotechnological chips, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Currently, there are commercially available options for fully and partially depleted silicon on insulator types.

What are the growth prospects and trends in the silicon on insulator industry?

The market for silicon-on-insulators (SOI) is being driven by several key factors. Firstly, the expansion of the electronics sector, coupled with the growing demand for high-performance microelectronic and consumer electronic devices like smartphones, notebooks, digital cameras, and desktops, is playing a significant role in driving market growth. Furthermore, the incorporation of fully depleted silicon on insulators (FD-SOI) in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and semi-autonomous driving systems in automobiles is another major factor contributing to market expansion.

This is due to the thermos-mechanical robustness, operational safety, low power consumption, and long-term reliability properties of FD-SOI. Moreover, the market is benefiting from notable technological advancements, including the integration of radio frequency silicon-on-insulator (RF-SOI) wafers into smartphones. This integration enables these devices to maintain cellular signals and ensure uninterrupted connections from multiple locations, thereby driving market growth.

Additionally, the increasing demand for affordable and low-power semiconductors and integrated circuits (IC) has led to the widespread adoption of SOI among the integrated device manufacturer (IDM) community. This adoption further propels market growth.Furthermore, the growing investments in R&D activities and frequent mergers and acquisitions (M&A) among key players to advance integrated circuit (IC) technology are expected to fuel the market.
