Increasing demand for power semiconductor is the primary factor anticipated to boost the demand of MOCVD equipment during the forecast period from 2016 to 2024. In the coming years, gallium nitride (GaN) is anticipated to replace silicon technology across various power semiconductor applications owing to its wider band gap, larger critical electric field, higher thermal conductivity and high breakdown voltage. This in turn is predicted to trigger the demand of GaN power semiconductor, thereby creating a better opportunity for MOCVD equipment in the coming years. In addition, the evolution of MOCVD equipment has led to increased application of MOCVD in nanotechnology. This development has been possible due to technological advancement in terms of reliability, scalability, and performance. With technological advancement, usage of MOCVD equipment as fabrication and manipulation tools in nanotechnology is one of the major driving factors anticipated to accelerate the demand of MOCVD equipment in the coming years.

However, fluctuating nature of the semiconductor industry is the most important factor predicted to deter the market growth of MOCVD equipment during the forecast period. In many cases, production of semiconductor exceeds the demand and thus results in large unsold stock. This in turn is anticipated to affect the demand of MOCVD equipment negatively. Moreover, the cyclic demand of MOCVD equipment results in fluctuating revenue inflow of the MOCVD manufacturers. This is also predicted to limit many manufacturers to enter in this market.

Based on application, the global MOCVD equipment market is majorly driven by the semiconductor and electronics segment in the coming years. This segment is also anticipated to experience the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Application of MOCVD equipment for semiconductor and electronic goods processing is unanimously high in demand due to the increasing use of advanced technology in the production of electronic gadgets such as smartphones, DVD players, video games, PDAs, portable media players, home-theater systems, printers and microwaves among others.

Geographically, Asia Pacific region held the largest market share of MOCVD equipment market across various region in 2015 and is predicted to hold its leading position in the coming years also. High concentration of original design manufacturers (ODMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) is the key factor behind this region's dominance. Moreover, increasing demand of power electronic devices across various utility application in Asia Pacific region is another important factor responsible for the growth of MOCVD equipment market in this region. On the other hand, owing to mature market due to high market penetration in U.S and Canada, North America is predicted to experience a sluggish growth rate during the forecast period.
