DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Process Control Market – Analysis By Process Type (Inspection and Defect Review, Metrology, Others), Application (Wafers, Photomasks, Others), By Region, By Country (2021 Edition): Market Insights and Forecast with Impact of COVID-19 (2021-2026)” report has been added to’s offering.

The Global Process Control Market was valued at USD 7520.11 Million in the year 2020. Increasing proliferation of loT (Internet of Things) and rising need of wafer fab equipment memory devices like 3D NAND and DRAM is driving growth of the market.

The main challenge posed to the industry is introduction of multi-layer wiring and planarization process in manufacturing of wafer fab equipment devices which existing inspection systems are incapable to detect. The growing demand for IoT devices will offer immense growth opportunities.

Based on process type, the market is segmented into Inspection and Defect Review, Metrology and Other Process Control. The Inspection and Defect Review segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period as inspection is about finding the locations of potential defects and is the largest process, representing approximately 50% of the Process Control market.

Asia Pacific is estimated to hold the maximum share in the global Process Control Market. Asia Pacific continues to dominate the outsourced aspects of wafer fab equipment production. Nearly 80 percent of wafer fab equipment foundries and assembly and test operations are concentrated in Asia.

Factors such as higher concentration of OEMs and ODMs across industries, including consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare, industrial, and others in Asia Pacific will significantly drive microcontroller manufacturing demand which in turn drives the demand of wafer fab equipment. Further, growing advances in wafer fab equipment manufacturing will facilitate the Process Control market growth in Asia Pacific over the forecast period.

By 2026, the wafer fab equipment industry will experience significant benefits from the ongoing development and innovation in connectivity, communications, the automotive industry, and data centers. In addition, the increase in the consumption of electronic components used in the navigation of automobiles, safety, and infotainment further contributes to the growth of the wafer fab equipment sector and process control market.
