The global Chemical Mechanical Planarization Market is forecast to reach $7842 Million by 2026, growing at a CAGR 7.3% from 2021 to 2026. Chemical Mechanical Planarization can be referred as process of smoothing as well as polishing surfaces by a combination of chemical and mechanical (or abrasive) actions, serving pneumatic cylinder applications, acting as an alternative of photolithography processes. Globally, growing demand for Integrated circuits for electronic devices, advancements in shallow trench isolation applications as well as continuous investments in fumed silica or silicon nitride based chemical polishing can also drive the market growth forward. In addition, increasing demand for CMP for water planarization as well as the use of Micro electro Mechanical System (MEMS) isset to poise the market growth forward during the forecast period.

Chemical Mechanical Planarization Market Segment Analysis-By Product Type

Consumable segment is analyzed to witness the highest growth in the global chemical mechanical planarization market, with a CAGR of around 9.5% during the forecast period 2021-2026. With the high amount of production for advanced semiconductor devices, the need for manufacturers towards deploying material polishing technologies capable of making complex designs in smaller footprints becomes essential. This, in turn, raises the adaptability of consumables to have extreme control over slurry or pad qualities. Additionally, usage of costly materials like PEEK (polyetheretherketone) and PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) in order to resist chipping, ensure longer wear life, and others in several formulations have also emerged as a vital factor attributing to the growth of the chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) consumables over time. In December 2020, the Chemical Mechanical Planarization Consumables Task Force under the Liquid Chemicals Global Technical Committee within the SEMI Standards Program had revealed about the development of a new SEMI standard, SEMI C100 in order to ensure the hardness of polishing pads to be used for semiconductor manufacturing.

Chemical Mechanical Planarization Market Segment Analysis- By Application

Integrated Circuit Manufacturing is anticipated to account as the fastest-growing segment in the global chemical mechanical planarization market, with a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period 2021-2026.
