CMP Technologies and Markets to the 7nm Node

The Semiconductor industry is going through an unprecedented period of change:

semicondcutor industry trends


Novel Interconnects


After several years of almost no change in revenues, the CMP slurry and pad market is close to returning to higher growth rates. 2017 finally seems like the year the industry will show substantial uptick as shown below:

Slury pad forecast

In addition, the positive impact of new CMP applications in both planar and multi-gate structures as well as 3D NAND are positively impacting the demand for CMP slurries and pads. Novel materials such as cobalt liners, bulk cobalt fills and possibly new barrier materials will lead to new materials being planarized.
