Atomic Layer Deposition Equipment for More than Moore 2021
ALD has historically been the scaling enabler for mainstream devices such as memory and logic. During the past 20 years of high-volume manufacturing (HVM), 300mm ALD platforms have evolved to address the high throughput needs of mainstream devices despite the intrinsic-to-ALD low growth rate. Regarding More-than-Moore (MtM) devices, CMOS Image Sensors and some Si power applications closely follow logic and memory device production approaches and use similar 300mm ALD platforms. Other MtM devices require 200mm ALD platforms capable of delivering acceptable throughput for smaller batch sizes or single wafer reactors. These deposit excellent quality thin films, often on non-Si materials such as compound semiconductors (GaN, SiC, GaAs), piezoelectrics, or ferroelectrics, among others. The MtM applications considered here are MEMS and sensors, power devices, and RF devices, as well as photonics (including miniLED, micro-LED, and VCSEL applications). Amongst other processes, ALD is used for surface and sidewall passivation, trench coatings and gate dielectrics, optical coatings, processing layers, and hermetic sealing. Suitable 200mm ALD platforms have been unveiled during the past few years and are now truly entering MtM HVM, propelled by wafer production volume increase.

Thin Film Deposition: Trends, Key Issues, Market Analysis
CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) is used to deposit materials in various forms, including monocrystalline, polycrystalline, amorphous, and epitaxial. By subtypes, there are mainly LPCVD (low pressure), PECVD (plasma enhanced), and ALD. PVD deposition techniques include sputtering and eBeam and thermal evaporation.
The CVD process involves mixing the source material with one or more volatile precursors using a plasma to chemically interact and breakdown the source material. The processes use heat with higher pressures leading to a more reproducible film where the film thicknesses could be managed by time/power. These films are more stoichiometric, they are denser and are capable of growing higher quality insulator films. The PVD processing uses a solid precursor metal that is gasified through some electrical energy. The gasified atoms are then transferred to the substrate. These processes manages thicknesses using a quartz crystal rate monitor to control rate and thickness of the film.
ALD films are very conformal approaching 2000:1 aspect ratios, thus providing excellent step coverage over features. The process is repeatable and can grow thinner layers under 10nm thickness predictably. Films include Alumina oxide (AL2O3), Hafnium oxide (HfO2) and Titanium oxide (TiO2). Its use in the semiconductor industry has advanced ALD rapidly in recent years to develop thin, high-K gate dielectric layers.
The PECVD process offers good step coverage over features. Films include Silicon Dioxide (SiO2), Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) and lower stress Oxynitride (SiON) films. The PECVD films offer more flexibility than ALD with higher deposition rates leading to higher throughputs.

Driver: Constantly developing semiconductor industry
The emergence of technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and 5G have led to a significant increase in the development of data-driven solutions. Many companies extensively focus on research & development (R&D) activities to develop advanced solutions using such technologies. This has led to increased demand for ICs to be embedded in devices to develop advanced, efficient, and smart solutions. Moreover, the growing trend of lightweight, miniaturized, and fast electronic devices have created a surge in demand for complex and compact ICs. This is expected to drive the ALD equipment market growth as ALD facilitates the deposition of very thin nano-layers on a wide range of substrates. Deposition of thin films and coatings using ALD enables the development of smaller ICs by maintaining their standard performance.
Restraint: Requirement of skilled workforce
Front-end wafer fabrication processes in manufacturing semiconductors such as lithography, wafer surface conditioning, wafer cleaning, and deposition are highly complex and require skilled technicians. The growing demand for semiconductor devices from many end-user industries such as consumer electronics and automotive has been creating ample growth opportunities for market players. However, the shortage of skilled technicians for such processes has not enabled the market players to exploit the opportunities to their fullest. The requirement of a skilled workforce to implement such complex processes is a major factor negatively affecting the market growth.
Opportunity: Rising demand for photovoltaics
Due to the rapid depletion of resources, there has been a surge in demand for renewable energy sources. According to International Energy Agency (IEA), renewable energy accounted for 28% of the total energy globally in 2021. With the help of PV cells and solar panels, energy from the sun can be converted into electricity. Due to the increasing energy crisis, there has been an increase in demand for solar energy in the last decade. The growing demand for photovoltaics is expected to create lucrative opportunities for market players offering solutions for ALD. In solar cells, ALD films can be used as surface passivation layers, buffer layers, window layers, absorber layers, and hole/electron contacts. Increasing demand for photovoltaics is expected to drive the market growth for ALD.
Challenge:Technical difficulties and process complexity
Processes involved in manufacturing semiconductors need clean rooms and clean equipment. Even a tiny amount of dust can hamper the process and result in a heavy financial loss. Delay in supply due to errors during manufacturing may result in additional losses and order cancelations. A few common challenges associated with semiconductor manufacturing include defects associated with raw materials, mechanical integrity, and problems at the chip level. Moreover, advanced and innovative technologies are needed at the fabrication stage to produce high-quality semiconductor devices and ICs. The growing trend of miniaturization has significantly increased the complexity of wafers due to the presence of multiple patterns at the chip level. ALD needs a very high degree of cleanliness. However, it is difficult to maintain cleanliness in ALD when process nodes are extremely small. Moreover, technicians must ensure that there should not be any leakage during ALD as the gases used in the production processes can be hazardous. The increasing number of challenges involved while manufacturing semiconductors may impede the market growth for ALD.
Medical applications to register the highest CAGR during forecast period
The rising demand for smart and connected healthcare solutions, wearables, and implants is expected to drive the ALD equipment market growth for medical applications. ALD is a suitable deposition method for medical devices as most of the materials used in ALD are biocompatible. The adoption of ultra-thin biocompatible ALD coatings also improves adhesion to the bone and protects patients from leakages from the implant to the body. Such advantages offered by ALD make it highly suitable for medical applications
Flouride films to register the highest CAGR during forecast period
In recent years, there has been an increasing demand for ALD of fluorides as they have a low refractive index and facilitate improved transmission at UV and IR wavelengths, making them highly suitable for optical applications. Compounds such as aluminum fluoride can also be used for developing protective coatings on lithium-ion batteries. High-performance mirrors at UV wavelengths require transparent dielectrics as protective coatings to prevent oxidation. Decreasing the thickness of protective layers subsequently reduces absorption losses. ALD of metal fluorides ensures superior transmission at UV wavelengths and facilitates the deposition of ultra-thin films to prevent absorption losses.
More Moore applications to account for the largest share of the ALD equipment market during forecast period
The increasing usage of various logic devices and memory technologies is a significant factor expected to drive the ALD equipment market growth for More Moore applications. In recent years, there has been a surge in demand for 3D NAND flash memory technology. The use of 3D NAND flash memory facilitates increased storage speed without the need of reducing the chip size. The increasing demand for 3D NAND flash memory technology, logic devices, and interconnect technologies is expected to drive the market growth for ALD equipment.
The study segments the ALD equipment market based on deposition method, film type, application (non-semiconductor), and application (semiconductor) at the regional and global level.
