Demand for Sapphire Substrates to Remain High from LED Segment

Light emitting diode (LED), radio frequency integrated circuits (RFIC), laser diodes, silicon on sapphire (SoS) integrated circuits, and other applications, such as insulated gate bi-polar transistor (IGBT), double-diffused metal oxide semiconductor (DMOS), and ultra-fast diodes, are the main application areas of sapphire substrates across the world.

Among these, the demand for these substrates has been greater from the LED segment, which is likely to remain so over the years to come, thanks to the increasing usage of LED lights and screens. The RFIC segment is also expected to witness a considerable rise in the demand for sapphire substrates over the next few years.

In 2015, Asia Pacific was the largest regional market for sapphire substrates, accounting for more than two third of the market share, in terms of revenue, and is expected to retain their leading position during the forecast period. In terms of volume, Asia Pacific is again expected to be the largest regional market for sapphire substrates, accounting for more than 80% market share in 2015. The shifting of semiconductor manufacturing facilities in China, Taiwan, Japan and other Asian countries has been a primary factor for the growth of the sapphire substrates market in this region.

Additionally, easy availability of raw materials and equipment suppliers, coupled with much lower labor cost, has also been promoting the growth of sapphire substrates market in Asia Pacific. Furthermore, presence of several LED manufacturers in this region has also significantly promoted the growth of sapphire substrates market in this region. North America was the second largest market for sapphire substrates in 2015, in terms of revenue. Volume wise, the region was also the second largest market. The market is expected to grow at a medium pace and is primarily driven by the application of high quality sapphire substrates in RFICs and laser diodes among others.
