“The semiconductor industry is expected to hold the largest share of the mass flow controller market during the forecast period”
The semiconductor industry is expected to hold the largest share by 2023 of the overall mass flow controller market owing to the increasing demand for mass flow controllers in manufacturing processes of semiconductor devices/products. The rise in innovations and developments in the semiconductor industry significantly drives the growth of this market at present, and a similar trend is likely to continue in the near future. The market for the semiconductor industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023. The semiconductor industry is cyclic in nature. Although being cyclic in nature, the market for MFCs is expected to witness steady growth in the semiconductor industry as the mass flow controller is an indispensable product for the manufacturing of semiconductor devices. As a result, the semiconductor industry is expected to hold the largest share of this market during the forecast period.
“Low flow rate mass flow controllers are expected to hold the largest share of the overall mass flow controller market in 2017”
Presently, mass flow controllers are used in numerous industries such as semiconductor, oil & gas, chemicals, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, water & wastewater treatment, and metals & mining. All applications allied with these industries demand mass flow controllers having the ability to measure low, medium, and high flow ranges. The application requirements vary with the criticality of the process. Some of the applications such as medical equipment, healthcare devices, and semiconductor manufacturing processes need ultra-low flow rate mass flow controllers. The ultra-low flow rate mass flow controllers are also likely to be highly adopted for industrial applications, namely analytical instruments, coating, dispensing, leakage testing, and industrial automation, which, in turn, is expected to create several opportunities to low flow rate mass flow controller providers in the near future. Owing to this, low flow rate mass flow controllers are expected to hold the largest share of the overall mass flow controller market in 2017.
