DUBLIN, Dec. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/c5kp3f/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese IC Advanced Packaging Industry Report, 2013-2014" report to their offering.
Typically, an independent packaging and testing vendor is known as OSAT. In 1997, the OSAT industry scale was no more than USD5.1 billion or so, making up 19.6% of the semiconductor industry, in sharp contrast to the market size of USD23.6 billion in 2011, a figure that occupied 30% of the semiconductor industry. During 2011-2013, the packaging and testing industry saw an AAGR of less than 5% for 3 consecutive years, which mainly resulted from the fact the advanced packaging technologies developed from 2005-2010 period began to be popularized, thus leading to a dramatic decline in unit prices, these packaging technologies including FC-BGA, WLCSP, QFN, SiP, and PoP, etc.
At present, both mobile phones and computers are developing towards ultra-thin, multi-core and high frequency while memory industry is targeted at ultra bandwidth, which would prompt the packaging and testing market to satisfy the market demand with the updated technologies. Since 2014, a number of new technologies have been applied, which would bring with it a more than 6% growth in packaging and testing industry.
These technologies, including MLP PoP, Cu Bol, FC-CSP, FOWLP, Embedded Component (Trace) Substrate, and 2.5D, are mainly used in smartphones and ultra-thin computers, with a robust market demand. Meanwhile, TSV is expected to be widely applied from the memory industry. On the other hand, some major IDM vendors like Panasonic and Renesas Electronics have retreated from packaging business. It is projected that in 2014 the output value of OSAT industry will grow by 8.4% to USD27.2 billion, and advanced packaging industry probably by 10% to USD18.2 billion.
In terms of industry, a type of middle-end enterprises has emerged between Foundry or IDM and OSAT since 2008. In the era of FC packaging, these enterprises mainly provide RDL, Wafer Bumping, and Wafer Level Test. But in the age of 2.5D and 3D, their scope of business has been greatly expanded, primarily including Micro Bumping, Thin & Reveal, Interposer, Via Middle, WL-Carrier Assembly, etc.
In 2014, the biggest event that happened to the packaging industry was nothing but the attempt of Temasek to sell STATS ChipPAC, the world's fifth largest packaging company. Owned by the Government of Singapore, STATS ChipPAC is less competitive, especially when facing the competition from the Taiwanese rivals. Although it has state-of-the-art technologies, yet the company depends heavily on its key accounts, including Infineon, Apple Inc., Qualcomm, and Broadcom, etc. However, Infineon has gradually withdrawn from mobile phone market while Apple Inc. and Qualcomm have diversified supply chain risks, cutting down on the orders of STATS ChipPAC, which led to a fall in revenue for four consecutive years.
In addition, a second major event was the fact that SPIL had won massive orders from Qualcomm, MTK as well as Huawei's Hisilicon, which would considerably increase SPIL's revenue. In H1 2014, SPIL harvested a substantial growth of 27% in revenue, making it the world's No.1 by operating margin. In 2014, the company is expected to surpass Amkor as the global second.
