Increasing Demand for Electronics to Fuel Growth of Global Semiconductor Gases Market

Industry Insights

Semiconductor gases are the ones which are used in the manufacturing of semiconductors. Semiconductors are materials that have properties similar to an insulator as well as most metals. Semiconductors are used in day to day electronics such as diodes and transistors. Transistors are generally used for powering up CPUs, sensors, and different electronics. On the other hand, diodes are find their application in devices such as inverters and LEDs.

Semiconductor gas producers provide highly stable and quality gases for the production of semiconductors in order to keep the overall process stable as well as clean. These semiconductor gases help in the growth of oxide films, nitride and dope or poly the wafers so as to change the electrical properties of the semiconductor. The oxide works as a resistance when the dopant chemicals are deposited and later diffused on the surface. Nitrogen is among the most commonly used gas in the production of semiconductors. It is typically used for purging of vacuum chambers and pumps in the semiconductor electronic sector. Helium is generally used as a cooling gas in the semiconductor electronics sector.
