Market outlook of the 3D IC market
Technavios research analyst predicts the global 3D IC market to grow at a CAGR above 79% during the forecast period. The demand for compact and high-performance ICs in smartphones, tablet PCs, smart TVs, automotive products, and heavy equipment is the primary growth driver for this market. In comparison to 2D ICs, they have better performance and high bandwidth. Moreover, 3D ICs have a lesser number of interconnections between the packages, consumes less power, and require less space on electronic boards.
The high proliferation of IoT devices is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. Vendors in IoT market are constantly innovating in designing, manufacturing, and packaging. This enables them to come up with new IoT products in different verticals such as consumer electronics, healthcare, and manufacturing. 3D MEMS and sensors are used to capture data in a real-time scenario, which helps the company in increasing the returns by streamlining the process, increasing productivity, and enabling predictive maintenance. They also reduce the maintenance cost and the possibility of a sudden stop of work due to machinery failure.
