Sputtering Target and Evaporation Material Market to Cross $3 Billion by 2020 with Major Demand from Semiconductors in APAC Region

Sputtering and Evaporation are variants of physical vapor deposition in which a very thin film or layer is accumulated on substrate using various techniques with respect to the application. Sputtering Target and Evaporation Materials (ST&EM) play a vital role in many of the industries like electronics, energy, optics, industrial and more to ensure that a uniform and thin film of desired material is deposited on the substrate to prevent it from external damages. Owing to their significant applications such as in semiconductor components, displays, sensors, data storage devices, photovoltaic cells, batteries, industrial tools, optics, automobile mirrors, decorative and many others in the diverse end used industries, ST&EM Market is set to grow at a considerable pace in the coming years. For the period of 2015 till 2020, it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% to reach $3.2bn by 2020.

Sputtering Target and Evaporation Materials Market has been segmented into methods of sputtering and evaporation, materials used as targets, application sectors and geography. The sputtering target and evaporation materials market encompasses a variety of materials which includes pure metals, compounds, alloys and others. The various methods of sputtering include DC sputtering, reactive sputtering, RF sputtering, Ion-assisted, Magnetron and Gas flow. Metals which conduct electricity are sputtered through DC sputtering; whereas, compounds use Reactive sputtering. This market is set to experience considerable growth in the coming years due to constant demand from dedicated end user sectors, especially electronics and energy.
