Infograph - Global Gas Scrubber for Semiconductor Market

By Infinium Global Research Jan, 2024

The Global gas scrubber market for semiconductor industry was valued at USD 1,084.2 million in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 3,352.9 million by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 15.40% over the forecast period. Over the past two decades, the global semiconductor industry has experienced sluggish growth due to advancements in technology and a significant surge in demand for electronic devices. This surge has led to a remarkable 300% increase in the sales of electronic devices from 2001 to 2022, consequently driving a 290% increase in semiconductor unit sales. This exponential growth has created a higher demand for integrated devices like gas scrubbers, which are essential for the efficient management of pollutants.

The semiconductor manufacturing process involves highly fluorinated processes that result in the emission of perfluorocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons, nitrogen trifluoride, and sulfur hexafluoride into the environment. However, governments worldwide have implemented stringent regulations and restrictions to minimize the presence of toxins, greenhouse gases, and pollutants in the environment. For instance, the European legislation, under the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) 2010 and Directive 2010/75/EU, has set regulations for various industrial sectors, including semiconductors, to align with their zero pollution vision. Despite the growing demand for gas scrubbers in the semiconductor industry, the high initial cost of these systems poses a significant challenge. Semiconductor manufacturing is capital-intensive, requiring substantial investments in equipment and infrastructure. The high cost of gas scrubbers can act as a barrier, particularly for small and medium-sized semiconductor manufacturers with limited budgets. However, the gas scrubber market in the semiconductor industry is expected to witness significant growth opportunities as manufacturers invest in research and development to create innovative and cost-effective products. Manufacturers aim to enhance product efficacy while reducing costs to cater to the industry's evolving needs.
