Aixtron named by Gartner as MOCVD market leader for third consecutive year, at 46% share

According to the report ‘Market Share: Semiconductor Wafer Fab Equipment, Worldwide, 2018’ by Gartner, for a third consecutive year deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, near Aachen, Germany maintained its position as market leader for metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) equipment, with a 46% share, ahead of the USA’s Veeco at 27% and China’s AMEC at 23%, while the MOCVD market grew from $401m in 2017 to $553m in 2018.

Aixtron’s MOCVD systems are used in the high-volume production of lasers for applications such as 3D sensing and optical data communications as well as specialty LEDs, compound solar cells and gallium nitride (GaN) power electronics or GaN RF applications, in particular for the build out of the new 5G communication network.

“We focus on our core competence in MOCVD technology and have achieved market leadership in a number of highly attractive growth markets due to the strong performance of our systems,” says president Dr Bernd Schulte. “Our continued success is based on an application understanding developed over decades in cooperation with our customers,” he adds. “This strongly serves the continuous further development of our portfolio to best meet the specific requirements of the end markets - highest quality epitaxial layers combined with high efficiency in handling the precursors used for MOCVD processes. Thus we offer the lowest cost of ownership for high-volume manufacturing of compound semiconductor devices,” he claims.
