"Electrifying your pathway to success through in-depth market research"
A Probe card is a medium between an electronic test system and a semiconductor wafer used to check the quality of integrated circuits or large-scale integration during semi-conductors manufacturing. Probe card performs a function to serve an electrical path between the test system and the circuits on the wafer, wherein the circuits can be tested and validated. The demand for probe cards is set to continue its robust growth in the forecasted period with the increasing application of semi-conductors across end-users mainly electronic and manufacturing. The application of semiconductors is widening in manufacturing facilities to cope up with the demand for integrated circuits used in the growing number of electronic devices. Owing to this, manufacturers are focusing on increasing their production capabilities by setting up new production facilities. For instance, in 2017, Technoprobe built a new factory in Italy to support the increasing demand for high-end probe cards.
Key Market Driver -
• Growing demand for semi-conductors in electronic, automotive and manufacturing industry
Key Market Restraint -
Increasing demand for complex electronic circuitry
Furthermore, the adoption of semiconductors is increasing owing to emerging technologies such as autonomous driving, artificial intelligence (AI), 5G and Internet of Things, further supplementing the probe cards market. Moreover, key players are focusing on various marketing strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, collaborations in order to maintain their competitive edge in the market. For instance, In October 2017, Nidec Corporation acquired SV Probe Pte. Ltd., in order to gain competitiveness in the global market and increase its sales footprints.
Key players operating in the Global Probe Cards Market are FormFactor, JAPAN ELECTRONIC MATERIALS CORPORATION, SV Probe, FEINMETALL GmbH, MICRONICS JAPAN CO., LTD., Microfriend, KOREA INSTRUMENT Co. Ltd., Synergie Cad, ADVANTEST CORPORATION, Wentworth Labs
Asia Pacific is expected to dominant the probe cards market in the forecast period owing to presence of major semi-conductors manufacturers, presence of major suppliers of semiconductor materials, high-end equipment, and special semiconductors mainly in Japan. Besides, South Korea has a competitive edge in the global high bandwidth memory (HBM) and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM), further propelling the probe cards market. Moreover, integration of semiconductors in cars for safety-related electronics systems, automation, electrification, digital connectivity, and security further driving the probe cards market.
