The report analyzes the global semiconductor chip handler market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the semiconductor chip handler industry.

Semiconductor Chip Handler Market: Overview

The semiconductor chip handlers are employed at semiconductor manufacturing facilities for various applications such as sorting, testing, and others. Semiconductor testing is essential for ensuring compliance with industry quality requirements and specifications. The manufacturing phase of a semiconductor can be divided into two steps, including, wafer fabrication and assembly. After assembly, final tests are performed. Since semiconductor manufacturing techniques cannot produce products with a yield of 100%, testing of the chips is essential and directly affects the final chip price because tiny defects might lead to a product's failure. Thereby, the testing of semiconductor chips is done with the use of automated test equipment (ATE), a test system, and a test handler. The package test, often known as the final test, is performed after each chip has been individually sealed in a packing. The test handler automatically moves each chip to the automated test equipment (ATE) terminal to examine, if any product was damaged during the packaging process.

Semiconductor Chip Handler Market: Growth Drivers

Increasing production & investment in the semiconductor industry to drive market growth during the forecast period.

The global semiconductor chip handler market is projected to grow owing to the rising production & investment in the semiconductor industry, across the globe. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association, the semiconductor industry has been working continually to speed up the pace of innovation and ramp up production in 2022, as the importance of semiconductors to the global economy continues to expand. Meanwhile, as per the World Semiconductor Trade Statistics (WSTS), the global semiconductor market reached USD 574,084 million in 2022, witnessing a growth rate of around 3.3% compared to the previous year. Further, the global semiconductor market revenue is likely to reach USD 575,997 million by 2024, up by 11.8% year-on-year (Y-o-Y).

In February 2022, the European Commission started consideration of the European Union (EU) Chips Act, which comprises up to USD 43 billion for supporting the regional semiconductor industry. Further, in the U.S., in July 2022, the government passed the CHIPS Act of 2022 to strengthen the country’s semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research. All such factors are likely to support the demand for the semiconductor chip handler industry.

Semiconductor Chip Handler Market: Restraints

Semiconductor supply chain disruption & trade sanctions to restrict market expansion

Semiconductors are critical components used in modern electronics. The semiconductor industry's supply chain is complex and highly globalized, with a few key firms dominating several stages of production. The demand for semiconductor chip handlers is expected to be low in a country with a poor supply chain scenario. About 39% of the value of the worldwide semiconductor supply chain is contributed by the U.S. semiconductor sector. Moreover, Japan, Europe, Taiwan, and South Korea collectively contribute another 53%. These nations benefit from a combined competitive edge in almost every supply chain segment. China, which makes up only 6% of the global economy, is rapidly increasing its capabilities across a wide range of sectors, and it may try to reorganize supply chains in its favor. The production of the most advanced semiconductors is situated in Taiwan (around 92% of worldwide manufacturing) and South Korea (8% of worldwide manufacturing).

According to the National Bureau of Statistics), China’s integrated circuit (IC) output declined by 17% to 44.3 billion units in the first 2 months of 2023, as the nation's semiconductor sector battled economic challenges and escalating US trade sanctions. Such factors are likely to hinder the growth of the semiconductor chip handler industry.
