Global Silicon on Insulator (SOI) market is valued approximately USD 669.71 million in 2018 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 22.30% over the forecast period 2019-2026. Silicon on Insulator (SOI) is a wafer semiconductor technology used in manufacturing of devices which give high performance and consumes low power as compared to devices based on traditional bulk silicon techniques also helpful in reducing parasitic device capacitance. Initially, this technology was developed for military use and power application but due to good performance of computing applications in integrated manufacturer community it is now used in lighting, communication, photonics, automotive, entertainment and gaming sector. Manufacturing thin wafers by using SOI technology prevents wastage of silicon which helps in reducing the cost of semi- conductors. Effective use of SOI technology is driving the Silicon on Insulator market. Development of photo voltaic technology and increase in the investments by governments to reduce the carbon footprint will increase the demand for SOI market in near future, along with that there is scope of advancement of SOI in resisting radiation and thermal capacity. However, factors such as complex product development process, time consuming activity, vitality of raw material prices and also the high cost of raw material will hinder the Silicon on Insulator market. Furthermore, the demand is also driven by increasing demand for gaming consoles and micro-processors from emerging countries.
