Optical patterned wafer inspection equipment is used to detect defects that occur during the semiconductor manufacturing processes. The increasing complexity of semiconductor manufacturinge due to new design rules and processes has increased the density of defects in the semiconductor wafers.

This in turn can ruin an entire wafer rather than just a die. Thus, optical patterned wafer inspection equipment is used by the semiconductor manufacturers to detect critical defects in semiconductor wafers. Optical patterned wafer inspection equipment helps the semiconductor manufacturers to effectively launch new products more quickly. This is mainly because they can introduce stringent inspection equipment such as optical patterned wafer inspection equipment in their manufacturing process to prevent any defects in the final product.

The analysts forecast the Global Optical Patterned Wafer Inspection Equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 7.8 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Optical patterned wafer inspection equipment is sold across the globe to numerous semiconductor manufacturers. In this respect, the APAC region accounted for the highest number of optical patterned wafer inspection equipment sold. This can be understood from the fact that the APAC region is today the largest base for semiconductor manufacturers. The APAC region is expected to continue its dominance in the market during the forecast period. Countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan are home to firms that have a strong hold on the global Electronics Manufacturing industry and this is the key reason for the dominance of the APAC region in this market.
