CMP Slurry to Witness Growing Demand in Front-end Semiconductor Applications

The global market for CMP slurry has been projected to register a spectacular CAGR through 2026. Worldwide sales of CMP slurry is estimated to account for nearly US$ 3,500 Mn revenues by 2026-end. With the rise of the semiconductor materials and equipment industry, engineers are continuously working on the optimization of CMP processes for enabling an ever-surging slurry dilution, and evaluating new pad entrants in the market. Unlike front-end semiconductor applications, the back-end processing has long utilized CMP slurries. However, with the transistor level becoming critical, CMP slurry is now observed as the enabling technology for front-end processing as well. It is being deployed in an array of front-end applications, particularly in memory devices, and for implementing metal gate integration schemes.

The front-end semiconductor applications involve several different stages wherein various materials are needed to be polished, thereby entailing requirement for different type of slurries. The advent of new device structures is creating demand for new single-layer slurries with fixed product development cost, making it challenging for suppliers to attain return on investment (ROI), which they acquire with copper and tungsten slurries.
