The global market for Sapphire Substrates is projected to reach US$1.7 billion by 2020, driven by the emergence of Silicon-On-Sapphire (SOS) as a disruptive semiconductor technology and expanding applications beyond light-emitting diodes (LED) production. Future growth in the market will be driven by the emergence of non-LED applications such as the use of Sapphire in smartphones, ballistic windows, luxury watch covers, display glass of mobile phones, and radio frequency integrated circuits (RFIC). R&D investments in SOS technology will witness strong gains, with semiconductor manufacturers migrating to the Silicon on insulator (SOI) technology. China represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market, led by the production capacity expansion efforts of LED chip producers in the country to meet the rising demand for LED lighting.  The report provides separate comprehensive analytics for the US, Japan, Europe, China, South Korea, Taiwan, and Rest of World.

The semiconductor industry is undergoing an unprecedented number of changes. The electronic systems end market drivers are changing from personal computers to smart phones and tablets. Major consolidation is taking place in the industry particularly in memory. More and more companies are going to Fab lite and fabless companies are rising in importance.  Optical lithography has entered the multi-patterning era and EUV is late. 450mm is on the horizon. Planar transistors are transitioning to 3D FinFETs and FDSOI. New materials are being introduced at an increased pace. DRAM and NAND are facing fundamental barriers to scaling with new solutions needed.
