According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the probe card market looks attractive with opportunities in the electrical testing of the integrated circuit in the semiconductor industry. The global probe card market is expected to reach an estimated $2 billion by 2023 with a CAGR of 4.5% from 2018 to 2023. The major growth drivers for this market are increasing demand for integrated circuits (ICs), growth in high-frequency testing, and increase in wafer size.
In this market, advanced and standard probe cards are used for electrical testing of ICs. Lucintel forecasts that advanced probe card will remain the largest product type and witness the highest growth during the forecast period as it eliminates the limitations related to probe area, pad layout, and extreme environment conditions.
Probe cards are used for electrical testing of different types of IC such as, foundry & logic, DRAM (Dynamic random-access memory), and flash. Foundry & logic will remain the largest type and witness the highest growth during the forecast period supported by the growth of semiconductor industry
Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest region and witness the highest growth during the forecast period supported by increasing production of integrated circuit in Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, and China. The presence of prominent IC manufacturers in these countries is also leading the demand for this region.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the development of probe card to reduce the cost of testing and introduction of die stacking for advanced 2.5D and 3D stacked packages. FormFactor, Micronics Japan Co., Technoprobe, Japan Electronic Materials, MPI Corporation, Nidec SV TCL, Microfriend, Korea Instrument, Will Technology, and TSE are among the major probe card providers.
