RF Plasma Generators Market: - An Overview
Plasma generators produce the needed radio frequency (RF) power to create and maintain plasma in plasma chambers and similar devices. The plasma generated can be used in numerous applications including integrated circuit (IC) or industrial manufacturing for film deposition, surface cleaning, and surface modification.
Furthermore, the matrix composition does not affect the RF generator performance as much as in older designs due to the rapid response and power efficient design.
The solid-state RF design allows the plasma to reach a stable state after changing matrices much more rapidly than older designs. This produces more consistent, stable intensities when changing samples, organic solvents or even from water to high salts solutions.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on RF Plasma Generators Market
The global economies are currently facing a critical crisis situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.
In addition, critical electronics manufacturing hubs are temporarily shut down to limit COVID-19’s spread, which in-turn is expected to negatively impact the supply chain demand for electronic components and devices.
Historically, the market for RF plasma generators has grown by almost 9% globally in the past 5 years. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, semiconductor industry is projected to decline by nearly 4%-5% in Q1-Q2 2020.
In March 2020, STMicroelectronics, a leading integrated device manufacturer adjusted its front-end and back-end manufacturing operations at its French plants with 50% reduction in the manufacturing staff. Such massive production delays and supply chain disruption is expected to impact the demand and adoption of RF plasma generators.
RF Plasma Generators Market: - Market Dynamics
Emerging Awareness Regarding Security Threats
Long-term reliability of the plasma generator is an important part of a trouble-free user experience. The RF generator board is water-cooled to prolong the service lifetime. In addition, an ensemble of advanced electronics is provisioned, as part of the RF circuitry, to protect the power transistors, facilitating long-term reliability.
Additionally, it ensures that the transistors are operating at the optimal operating voltage and current to maximize the margin against voltage breakdown and current meltdown simultaneously. Hence, such awareness about the breakdowns that might result in security threats will fuel the demand for RF plasma generators market.
Increasing Adoption of Solid-state Transistor Technology
There has been increasing use of new circuit design techniques as well as state-of-the-art components to deliver a plasma source with uncompromised performance, robustness and long-term reliability.
The demand for faster, smaller and more efficient semiconductor electronics has enabled continuous improvements in developing more compact electronic circuitry that require less power and incorporate more functionality.
Power electronics also benefited from the latest semiconductor advancements to achieve higher power density, efficiency which will result in increasing the demand for RF plasma generators market.
Design Challenges for Plasma Generation are hindering the Growth of RF Plasma Generators Market
RF generators are commonly large, heavy units, thereby forcing the ICP-OES instrument to be even larger. The traditional generators use power tubes and may not be able to cope with rapid transitions between heavy matrices, such as high metal or salt content and organic solutions.
The instrumentation with power tube generators have always been inefficient. Much of the power that is used with these instruments must be extracted as heat, this is wasteful and measures must be taken by laboratory to counteract the heat generated. Such design challenges can hinder the demand for the RF plasma generators market.
