INTRODUCTION

STUDY BACKGROUND
 
Electronics cleaning refers to the processes or steps that are employed to ensure that a semiconductor or other microelectronic device remains free from contaminants or other foreign materials that could have an adverse impact on its proper functioning and performance. New requirements are being placed on electronics cleaning technologies and products, because as device geometries continue to shrink and die sizes grow, microcontaminants such as particles, metallic impurities, and trace organic contaminants will have an ever-increasing detrimental impact on device yield and reliability.
 
Various other factors are contributing to the current dynamism of the electronics cleaning market. Process trends such as the movement to single-wafer processing pose new challenges for cleaning technology. Economic and environmental concerns are also causing users of electronics cleaning products to look for ways of reducing their chemicals consumption and substituting more environmentally benign chemicals for the harsh chemistries used in traditional “wet” process cleaning.
 
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
 
In such a dynamic environment, technologies and markets for electronics cleaning are continually evolving.   This report is an update of a report published by BCC Research in May 2006. 
 
The goal of this updated study is to provide the reader with an understanding of recent developments in electronics cleaning applications, technologies, and products that will influence the future size and structure of the market for cleaning equipment and consumables. 
 
Specific objectives include identifying segments of the electronics cleaning market with the greatest commercial potential in the near to mid-term (2010 to 2015), identifying and, where possible, quantifying the key demand drivers, projecting future demand for cleaning equipment and supplies, and evaluating the challenges that must be overcome for each segment to realize its potential.
 
INTENDED AUDIENCE
 
The report is intended especially for vendors of electronics cleaning equipment, chemicals, gasses and other consumables. Other readers who should find it particularly useful include entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists and other readers with a need to know where the electronics cleaning market is headed over the next 5 years. 
 
The report should also be of interest to users of electronics cleaning products such as semiconductor manufacturers. Finally, members of technical and professional organizations such as the Semiconductor Industry Association should find the report useful.
 
SCOPE AND FORMAT
 
The report addresses the global market for electronics cleaning equipment, chemicals and other consumables, and cleaning-related services during the period from 2009 through 2015. It covers the entire range of products that are used to ensure that the wafer or other microelectronic device is free of contaminants and other unwanted foreign materials as it goes through the fabrication process, including:
  • Cleaning equipment
  • Solvents and other chemicals
  • Gases
  • Miscellaneous other consumables
  • Engineering, management, and maintenance services related to cleaning equipment and supplies.
The report format includes the following major elements:
  • Executive summary
  • Technology trends
  • Products and manufacturers
  • Key patents and patent analysis
  • Major applications in which electronics cleaning products are used (e.g., semiconductor, LCD display fabrication)
  • Market drivers
  • Global trends in the market for electronics cleaning products by technology, product type, application, and geographical region, 2009 to 2015
  • Electronics cleaning product manufacturer market shares.
METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION SOURCES
 
The findings and conclusions of this report are based on information gathered from industry sources, including manufacturers and users of electronics cleaning equipment and chemicals.   Interview data were combined with information gathered through an extensive review of secondary sources such as trade publications, trade associations, company literature, and on-line databases to produce the market projections contained in this report. 
 
The base-year for analysis and projection is 2009. With 2009 as a baseline, market projections were developed for 2010 through 2015. These projections are based on a combination of a consensus among the primary contacts combined with our understanding of the key market drivers and their impact from a historical and analytical perspective. The analytical methodologies used to generate the market estimates are described in detail in the section on detailed market projections.
 
All dollar projections presented in this report are in 2009 constant dollars, unless otherwise noted.
