Global wafer handling robots market: Innovations in electronics and semiconductor manufacturing
The electronics and semiconductor manufacturing industry has been increasingly adopting robots for the assembly of parts, which, in turn, enables the easy picking of parts through circular tracking. Electronic components that require the use of automation and robotics systems include parts with cylindrical geometry, circuit boards, solar wafers, coils, switches, connectors, and electromagnetic components. The forecast period will witness an increase in the demand for robots that can handle delicate components such as wafers.
According to a senior research analyst at Technavio, During the forecast period, there will be an increase in the demand for wafer handling robots because they possess positioning capabilities and can operate efficiently to ensure micrometer-scale accuracies and tolerances. There is also an increase in the demand for vacuum wafer handling robots for the fabrication of ICs under vacuum conditions as these conditions ensure that the particulates can be controlled and there is minimal contamination.
