Vertical furnace is used to process wafers during the manufacturing of semiconductor devices such as annealing, film formation, and resin film hardening. These batch processing furnaces include a vertically organized quartz tube, which heats the objects positioned around it for processing. The wafers are loaded onto the quartz storage shelves, also known as boats, which are loaded or unloaded from the bottom of the tubes. This type of furnace provides an exemplary temperature distribution along with regulation of atmosphere with minimal particle generation. Furthermore, automated movement of wafers and boats allows for improved productivity and higher efficiency. Vertical furnace is better than conventional horizontal furnace, as it provides heat uniformity, has a clean room footprint, and is compatible with wafer loading. Moreover, it requires comparatively lesser area than the horizontal furnace.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Rajat Verma, “The Global Vertical Furnace Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2020-2027 due to rising use of vertical furnace in advanced packaging as they for high-end applications such as wearables, mobiles, IoT devices, computing devices, automotive, and other niche-oriented equipment. Moreover, growth in R&D investments by manufacturers has enabled for technological developments in vertical furnaces which is expected to create lucrative opportunity during forecast period.”

Key Takeaways from the Study:

  • Japan based Kokusai Electric Corporation, holds approximately one fifth of market share of global vertical furnace market in year 2019.
  • The wafer size: 151mm – 200mm segment holds a substantial share of the market due to its requirement in the manufacture of products such as microcontrollers and analog/mixed-signal ICs, including specialty memories and display drivers.
  • The use of LPCVD is rising due to its several attributes provided by the method such as high uniformity of thickness, purity, and better reliability of deposited layers. LPCVD has several uses in various applications such as films in advanced packaging and semiconductor devices.
  • The semiconductors segment accounted for a dominant share and the growth of the segment is attributed to its uses in several consumer electronics such as smartphones, refrigerators, wearables, specialty and flash memories, and CPUs & GPUs.
