What’s Driving High Demand Alumina Slurry?

“Burgeoning Semiconductor Demand for electronics manufacturing to remain Flag Bearer”

With improvements in device production, there will certainly be a greater need for novel alumina slurry solutions. Slurry solutions that can give error-free planarization with a reliable CMP process are required because of the ever-increasing level of complexity in the fabrication of electronic devices.

Modern computers, smartphones, flat-screen displays, and other electrical devices can process data at rapid speeds, thanks to semiconductors, which is only possible with efficient CMP processing. In addition, shifting chip demand is pressuring the market to adapt and create new productivity solutions. Big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI) are all growing, giving chipmakers new development alternatives as well as the chance to boost their efficiency.

The most recent iterations of logic and memory device nodes demand the best polishing and planarization techniques available, which, in turn, is poised to escalate the demand for alumina slurry, one of the largely used polishing materials.

Thereby, alumina slurry demand in silicon wafer manufacturing is poised to surge at 10.5% CAGR and reach US$ 409 million by 2032-end. Also, alumina slurry demand from the electronics sector is set to create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 484.8 million by 2032.

“Inelastic Demand Growth from Automobile Industry”

Alumina slurry has been useful in the grinding and polishing applications of automobile chassis in the recent past. However, it has started to become one of the vital raw materials; newly released alumina slurry coatings being developed as a cure for atmospheric corrosion, erosion, cathodic corrosion, and thermal oxidation, to name a few.

Moreover, in the recent past, rising demand for electric vehicles that use a large number of sensors and motherboards is expected to escalate the demand for alumina slurry, which is used during both, the manufacturing as well as repair/servicing of these vehicles from time to time.

Owing to this reason, alumina slurry demand from the automobile sector is set to create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 705.7 million by 2032.

Country-Wise Analysis

Why is China a Prominent Market for Alumina Slurry?

China has remained one of the largest semiconductor manufacturing bases in the world, alone accounting for one-fourth of the entire semiconductor market. Out of all the companies operating in the country, U.S. firms account for over 50% of all the revenue generated from this industry, which showcases the dominance of U.S.-based firms in the electronics industry in China.

China is globally recognised for producing electronics and smart products on an enormous scale; the electronics industry has been the foundation of success. China has a high attractiveness score because of its low labour cost and big client base. Chinese manufacturers strive to create cutting-edge products and parts locally so they can easily access domestic markets despite fierce competition.

Besides, the East Asian electronics and smart device market is seeing less rivalry due to the quick commercialization of new products. An aggressive and risk-taking policy is followed by manufacturers who increase product features while lowering pricing.

The China alumina slurry market is predicted to generate an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 142.8 million by 2032, expanding at 8.1% CAGR during 2022-2032

How is the U.S. Market Benefiting Alumina Slurry Manufacturers?

The U.S. has been taking huge strides in the field of electronics and semiconductor manufacturing and is investing heavily into its electronics and chip manufacturing industry in an attempt to reduce its reliance on semiconductors manufactured in China.

As of 2021, nearly 80% of all semiconductor wafer manufacturing taking place in the U.S. is undertaken by U.S.-origin players who have set up their bases in the country.

Moreover, leading semiconductor manufacturing companies in the U.S. have exported semiconductors worth more than US$ 49 billion as of 2020, and manufacturers are consistently investing in enhancing their manufacturing bases in response to the chip shortage faced by electronics manufacturers in the past year.

As per statistics, U.S. consumers spent around US$ 487 billion on consumer electronics in 2021, with smartphones accounting for nearly 14.2% of the total market share in the country, amounting to US$ 73 billion.

Such high spending on consumer electronics by consumers regularly, not only on smartphones but also on other electronic goods such as laptops, televisions, and smart home accessories, to name a few, has consistently escalated the demand for advanced semiconductors. This trickles down to demand escalation for alumina slurry being used in semiconductor manufacturing.

The North American market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period to reach US$ 205.9 million, with the U.S. alumina slurry market set to surge at a CAGR of 8.7% and expand 2.3X its current valuation by 2032.
