A glass wafer is a thin disc that is used as a base for manufacturing integrated circuits and for protection in consumer electronics. The glass wafer is usually made up of quartz, borosilicate glass, or fused silica. These wafers are used in a wide variety of industrial and technical applications. Borosilicate glass wafers provide a higher chemical stability against water or any other type of chemical. The rise in demand for compact and advanced consumer electronic devices is going to drive the growth of the glass wafer market. The increase in the demand for automotive electronics because of electric and hybrid vehicles, will lead to an increase in demand for glass wafers.
In 2020, Asia Pacific contributed to the largest share in the global glass wafers market. The dominance of this region is primarily attributed to rapid growth in the automotive and electronics industry in the region. The exponential growth in the industrial sector, including automotive, medical, and others, has influenced the demand for glass wafers. Asia is one of the leading electrical and electronics manufacturing regions.
The COVID-19 outbreak was first reported in Wuhan (China) during December 2020. As of January 2021, the US, India, Brazil, Russia, France, the UK, Turkey, Italy, and Spain are among the worst affected countries in terms confirmed cases and reported deaths. According to the latest WHO figures updated on January 2021, there are ~83,322,449 confirmed cases and 1,831,412 total deaths globally. The outbreak is adversely affecting economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The global chemicals & materials industry is one of the major industries suffering serious disruptions such as supply chain breaks, technology events cancellations, and office shutdowns. Although, China is the global manufacturing hub and largest raw material supplier for various industries, it is also one of the worst affected countries. The lockdown of various plants and factories in China is restricting the global supply chains and disrupting the manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and various chemicals and materials sales. Various companies have already announced possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products. In addition, the global travel bans imposed by countries in Europe, Asia, and North America are hindering the business collaborations and partnerships opportunities. All these factors are hampering the chemicals & materials industry, thus restraining the growth of various markets related to this industry.

There is increase in demand for Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) across the world, owing to their applications in communication systems, automotive sensors, as well as portable medical devices. The miniature design of these MEMs makes them a suitable for use in all electronic devices, which has increased the application of MEMs. Glass wafers are mostly used in wafer packaging of sensitive components, owing to their superior functionality, reliability, and capacity to withstand harsh environments. These glass wafers are also used as carrier substrates due to their chemical resistance and thermal stability. The demand for portable medical equipment, which includes patient monitoring devices, has been on the rise during the pandemic, owing to the increased usage and demand by health workers across the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has boosted the demand for personal monitoring devices among the consumers. These devices are integrated with MEMS. Hence, there is an increase in demand for MEMs, which in turn is propelling the growth of the glass wafers market.
Based on application, the glass wafer market is segmented into CMOS image sensor, integrated circuit (IC) packaging, LED, Microfluidics, FO-WLP, and mems and RF. The CMOS image sensor segment led the market with the largest share in 2020. An image sensor or imager is a sensor that detects and conveys information, which are used to make an image. There are two types of electronic image sensors that are charge-coupled device (CCD) and active-pixel sensor (CMOS sensor). Active pixel sensor is an image sensor in which every pixel sensor has a photodetector. Different types of active pixel sensor include the early NMOS APS and the common one that is the complementary MOS(CMOS) APS, which is known as the CMOS sensor, and is widely used in digital camera technologies as well as in cellphones. CMOS image sensor has various properties such as low power consumption, high integration, and fast IO readout speed due to which it has become one of the most widely used sensors.
