Market Overview

The global atomic layer deposition market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2019 and is projected to show significant growth by reaching up to US$ XX billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2020-2027).

Atomic layer deposition is a technique performed in the vapor phase, which is used to deposit thin films onto a substrate. The majority of the ALD reactions are performed using two chemicals called precursors. Numerous chemicals are made to react with the surface material during a reaction and all the steps are performed that create a thin film.

ALD is in greater demand for products such as data storage devices and small electronic components and displays, where the film thickness is imperative. Owing to such a wide application range, ALD becomes a popular tool for developing nano-coatings, thin films and fabricating semiconductor devices. Apart from this, ALD applications include deposition of the gate oxide, microelectronics, deposition transition-metal nitrides, metal films, and others.

Market Dynamics

The global atomic layer deposition market is driven by the massive demand for the product in semiconductor & power converting systems. ALD is gaining popularity in biomedical applications for creating flexible sensing devices. Also, ALD is increasingly being used in lithium batteries as it can store a large amount of energy in compact size.

Massive demand for the product in semiconductor & power converting systems

The ALD market is driven by increasing electronic industries and semiconductor solutions in various global parts. ALD plays a vital role in the fabrication of microelectronics due to its excellent ability to produce accurate thickness and uniform surface coupled with a high quality of film production using various materials.

ALD is a potential technique used to deposit high k-memory capacitor dielectrics, high k-gate oxides, ferroelectrics and metals for electrodes and interconnects. The demand for semiconductors is expected to accelerate by increasing the demand of the automotive industry's growing demand for electronic components in the automotive industry and directly boosting the ALD market.

Apart from these, several products such as MOSFET gate stack, DRAM capacitors, magnetic recording heads, nonvolatile ferroelectric memories and others use ALD as the primary technique. For instance, in 2017, Forge Nano announced its assembly exclusive intellectual property right to produce safer and longer Li-ion battery products. The company used its breakthrough high throughput ALD coating technology.

ALD is gaining popularity in biomedical applications for creating flexible sensing devices

Understanding the surface properties of biomedical devices is the most critical step in the biomedical industry, especially targeting devices that are going to be implanted in the body. ALD currently plays a vital role in various biomedical sectors, such as modifying nanoporous membranes, creating flexible sensors, creating thin biocompatible coating and polymer ALD. The ALD technology is used to deposit TiO2 films to create optical waveguide sensors used as diagnostic tools.

Besides, ALD helps create flexible sensing devices that can be used in athletes' clothing for moment detection or heart rate. Therefore the above-mentioned prime applications of ALD in biomedical sectors are expected to build a massive market in the coming tenure due to growing advancements in technology and rising demand for biomedical in recent times. For instance, in 2015, Oxford Instruments announced its acquisition of Platinum Medical Imaging. The acquisition aims to offer the lease and service of mobile medical imaging labs.

The high cost of the technique, low reaction time and unwanted chemical reactions hamper the ALD market's growth

To attain the high purity of the substrate leads to an increase in the cost of the product. The ALD process's cost increment is generally due to increasing run trials required before getting the conditions that favor their desired product. Therefore, there is no set cost for running a cycle of ALD instruments; the cost varies and depends on the substrate's quality and purity coupled with temperature and machine operation time. Thus, some substrates are less available than others, requiring special conditions that directly affect the technique's cost.

Also, the ALD process is very time-consuming and is one of the critical limitations hindering the ALD market's growth. Apart from this, sometimes precursors might be volatile but are not subject to decomposition. Various precursors are very sensitive to air/oxygen, thus becoming the major limitation for substrates that may be used for further processing. Thus high cost, low reaction time and chemical reactions hamper the growth of ALD in recent times and the momentum is expected to maintain in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The global atomic layer deposition market has shown a slight decline due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as several manufacturing plants were shut for months. Further several countries have restricted production activities during the covid-19 pandemic. The major lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak has changed the consumer behavior, demand and purchase patterns, re-routing the supply chain and significant intervention by the government to resist the transmission of the virus has severely hampered the business of the atomic layer deposition market.

The majority of businesses are shut down and operations across several end-users of atomic layer deposition products such as electronics, medical, solar and semiconductor industries are also compromised, thus dropping the product's global demand in 2020.

Segment Analysis

The global atomic layer deposition market is segmented based on type, product, application and region.

The high application range, especially in silicon solar cells industries, easy availability and the substrates' stability, makes aluminum oxide the dominating segment of the ALD market.

In terms of product, the ALD market is segmented into aluminum oxide, plasma-enhanced, catalytic, metal and others. From the segments mentioned above, aluminum oxide is expected to dominate the global market of ALD in the forecast period. ALD process based on aluminum oxide is the most convenient method used to produce thin-film coatings coupled with tailored physical properties, making it a vital product for the ALD market.

Aluminum oxide films target application areas such as insulating layers and dielectric layers and dictate a significant market share in the global market. Apart from these, aluminum oxides' easy availability is another factor making this global segment player in the ALD market. Aluminum oxide films acquire the technology's significant share due to excellent characteristics, stability to numerous substrates and optimal base metal prices.

For instance, in September 2020, Law Research Corporation announced the advanced Striker FE platform's launch. It is a new processing solution for manufacturing high aspect ratio chip architectures. The platforms use ICEFill technology to fill extreme structures in DRAM, 3D NAND and logic devices at emerging nodes.

Geographical Analysis

Rising demand from different users such as semiconductors, electronics, solar sector and medical equipment industry and dominant market of electrical and electronics is building the ALD business in the Asia-Pacific

Asia-Pacific region topped the ALD 2016 market and expected to maintain the forecast period's momentum due to rapidly growing demand from different users such as semiconductors, electronics, solar and medical equipment. The dominant market of electrical and electronics in South Korea is expected to proliferate the global market of ALD in the coming years.

The growing demand for solar panel manufacturing and installations in countries like China, Japan, India and Indonesia is more likely to boost the Asia-Pacific region's ALD market. On the other, North America is expected to grow in coming years, U.S and Canada being the major contributors to the market. The growing semiconductor and consumer electrics industry in the region is the prime factor triggering the market's growth.
