TSV is a vertical electrical connection that passes completely through a silicon wafer or chip to create 3D ICs or packages. The drivers for market adoption of 3D ICs are increased performance, reduced form factor and cost reduction.  This report analyzes the market for TSV ICs, equipment, and materials. A critical element in enabling 3D integration is the Through-Silicon Via (TSV); a large, metal-filled conduit passing through the silicon substrate. TSV provides the high-bandwidth interconnection between stacked chips.

Flip chips are appearing in a plethora of high-volume consumer products such as mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, and computer peripherals. Wafer-level packaging (WLP), the fabrication of the package directly on the wafer, is experiencing exceptional growth and stands out as one of the bright growth areas in electronics today. WLP offers lower cost, a smaller package, higher performance and added functionality compared to older methods. In the world of high-speed/high-performance IC and package design, flip chips are appearing in a plethora of high-volume consumer products such as mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, and computing. This report examines the market for flip chip ICs, and the lithography and wet etch tools used in their manufacture.

In this report we identify and forecast areas of semiconductor-related technologies where a small or mid-sized company can compete. These high-tech applications segmented as those are fabricated on 300mm wafers and those built on non-300mm wafers. The small business even with their limited resources can better serve these market segments by offering customized offerings, because the products of the big business will often be too generic to suit the needs of a niche market audience

At the time of the alleged 2010 embargo, Chinese firms accounted for 97 percent of rare-earth oxide production and a large fraction of the processing business that turns these into rare earth metals, alloys, and products like magnets. This near-monopoly was in a market with surging demand and intense political resonance in consuming countries. And the most dependent countries—primarily Japan and the United States, but also several European states—happened to be those over which China most wanted influence. Prices soared in the REE spot market in the wake of China’s 2010 export cuts, especially as downstream users—companies that incorporate REEs into other products—filled inventories to protect themselves from future disruptions. Downstream markets are already adjusting to the changing supply picture through normal market mechanisms. This report presents a forecast of REE for a variety of technologies: semiconductors, HDDs, FPDs, mobile devices, LEDs, and alternative energy
