U.S. fluid dispensing equipment for semiconductors & electronics markett size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Increasing investments and initiatives by various governments worldwide to establish a strong service provider for semiconductor fabrication are expected to present a major opportunity for fluid dispensing equipment manufacturers. Precision dispensing technology offers cost savings in chip production. Precision fluid dispensing also helps reduce waste generation by ensuring that the exact amount of material is dispensed at the exact location during chip fabrication. Precision fluid dispensing also allows high-quality production of chips, which are further inspected using optical instruments measuring the thickness of the deposited layer.

According to the Centre for Security and Technology and the Semiconductor Industry Association, the U.S. accounted for roughly 60% of the global private R&D spending on semiconductors and 25% of the total semiconductor consumption. The U.S. has decided to invest USD 52.7 billion in subsidies for the U.S. semiconductor industry from 2021 to 2026 as part of the CHIPS Act. Thus, the growing semiconductor demand is expected to propel the fluid dispensing equipment market over the forecast period.

Semiconductor production begins with the precise application of microfluid onto the surface of bulk chips or silicon wafers before proceeding to the manufacturing stage. A highly precise dispenser should securely bind two conducting points. This process permits chips to transmit electricity and communicate with one another once completed. Fluid dispensing equipment further helps to keep moisture from getting to the microchip and corroding it. This is especially critical when the chip is in contact with the environment, such as when it is stored in an electronic device or near an electrical source.

Manufacturers are spending extensively on R&D in order to introduce more advanced fluid dispensing equipment. This includes advancements in dispensing technology, control systems, and process optimization software. Companies can use automated fluid dispensing equipment to dispense, solder, and check the outcome of the entire process without any physical labor. This allows them to develop more reliable products at a lower manufacturing cost.

NSW Automation is involved in the development of high-precision micro-dispensing technology such as the SD1-X Automated Intelligent Micro-dispenser. This precision wafer-level dispensing mass production system supports micro-dispensing, underfill, and coating. Its major features are a 12-inch wafer support, granite platform, temperature control, SMEMA compliance, full automation configurability, and compatibility with various dispensing equipment.

Application Insights

The semiconductor application segment led the fluid dispensing equipment market for semiconductors & electronics and accounted for 41.2% of the global revenue share in 2022. Semiconductors/chips, or semis, are employed in various types of products, including medical equipment, computers, appliances, gaming hardware, and smartphones. Fluid dispensing is a crucial process in electronic manufacturing as this equipment is used to combine electronic boards through the dispensing process.

In addition, fluid dispensing equipment with a variety of pumps or valves offers a crucial step in ensuring semiconductor packages are secured from heat, electrostatic discharge, mechanical damage, and RF emission. Owing to the equipment’s advantages such as fluid dispensing accuracy, speed, and reliability, it is extensively deployed in the semiconductor manufacturing process. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association, the worldwide semiconductor market grew from USD 555.9 billion in 2021 to USD 574.1 billion in 2022. Thus, the growing semiconductor industry, coupled with various benefits offered by fluid dispensing equipment, is expected to drive market demand.

Underfill dispensers are extensively used in semiconductor packaging to apply underfill material to fill the gap between a semiconductor chip and its substrate, such as a printed circuit board or package substrate. Owing to the benefits of underfill materials such as mechanical support and stress relief and improved reliability and durability of the semiconductor package, there is a high adoption of this particular equipment in the semiconductor industry.

The MEMS sensor segment is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period. MEMS sensors are miniature devices that combine mechanical and electrical components on a single chip, enabling them to sense and measure various physical parameters such as acceleration, pressure, temperature, and motion. Fluid dispensing equipment is used in various stages of MEMS sensor fabrication to apply precise and controlled amounts of materials for assembly, bonding, and packaging. These aforementioned factors are anticipated to propel market demand over the forecast period.

A lid-sealing dispenser is a device used in the manufacturing process of MEMS sensors to apply a sealing material to the sensor package or lid. From the perspective of MEMS sensor manufacturing, the lid sealing dispenser is an automated equipment used to precisely dispense adhesives, epoxies, or other sealing materials onto the sensor package. The dispenser ensures accurate and uniform application of the sealing material, which is crucial for creating a hermetic seal to protect the MEMS sensor from external contaminants and moisture.

Type Insights

The automatic fluid dispensing equipment segment led the market and accounted for 72.8% of the global revenue share in 2022. Automatic fluid dispensing equipment finds applications in a wide range of industries, including semiconductor, camera/sensor assembly, electronics, LED-automobile, pharmaceutical, and medical device production, among others. In addition, automatic fluid dispensers in LED-automobile manufacturing significantly enhance production efficiency, reduce material waste, and ensure the consistency and quality of fluid deposition on LED-automobile components.

A manual fluid dispenser accurately dispenses liquid but requires manual interaction from users to initiate dispensing and adjust dispensing settings. It usually costs around USD 30 to over USD 1,500. These dispensers offer precise control over the dispensing process, allowing operators to apply fluids with accuracy and consistency. They are also relatively cost-effective and well-suited for smaller production volumes or applications that require flexibility and manual control. Owing to the aforementioned characteristics, the segment is expected to grow steadily in the coming years.
