What is the Future Outlook of the ESC Market in Comparison to Historic Sales?

In the past few years, electrostatic chucks have become much more omnipresent in semiconductor manufacturing equipment. In addition to the eradication of moving parts, ESCs hold the commitment to dwindle wafer edge exclusion. Electrostatic chucks provide a technical advantage in terms of wafer planarity, non-edge exclusion, and high reliability.

Due to increase in demand for semiconductor wafers there would be substantial growth in demand for ESCs. These ESCs are the preferable choice for consumers due to their adapting to various tools over temperature. The main purpose of ESCs is to absorb the heating and cooling of wafers in the semiconductor industry.

Owing to the ongoing crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, production and supply chain activities have seen a major slump. With a number of end users affected in regions such as the United States, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, supply and shortage in demand are expected to result in a significant drop in Y-O-Y growth. Yet, Persistence Market Research expects the global ESC market to expand at 5.5% CAGR through 2031.
