Restraints: Poisonous properties of gases used in CVD equipment

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) uses one or more volatile precursors to produce thin films on the substrate surface. The typical process involves using reaction chambers where reaction gases in the form of hydrochloric acid, silane, dichlorosilane, phosphine, and diborane, among others, are produced depending on the processes involved are not only harmful to the operator but also for the environment. Additionally, the CVD precursors can be highly toxic, such as (Ni(CO)4), explosive (B2H6), or corrosive (SiCl4). The by-products of CVD reactions can also be hazardous (CO, H2, or HF). The prolonged exposure to such volatile compounds and gases acts as a restraint to the growth of the chemical vapor deposition market.

Opportunities: Growth in Autonomous Vehicles

Semiconductor technology, a booming market for manufacturers, has incorporated the automotive segment as one of its use cases. Among new innovations in the automotive sector, semiconductor technology has played a significant role in developing new vehicles with enhanced technology such as graphic processing units and new application processors, sensors, DRAM, and NAND flash.

NAND, by Memory, is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period

The global CVD equipment market has been segmented into DRAM, NAND, and Others based on memory. By memory, NAND is the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 16.16% forecast for 2021-2027, whereas DRAM had the highest revenue share of 43.08% in 2020.

Dynamic Random-Access Memory (DRAM), a sub-segment of RAM, is used for storing data in an integrated circuit. The term dynamic shows that the memory must be constantly revived (reenergized) or lose the data stored on it. It stores bits of data in a storage cell which consists of a capacitor and a transistor. One of the possible advantages of DRAM memory is that it has a relatively simple memory cell structure and is cheaper than another alternative type of memory. Compared to Static RAM, it has lower leakage from capacitors but operates at a slower speed than the former. Since DRAM is a volatile memory, it needs the power to operate, which is a possible disadvantage.
