GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Strained Silicon market. The global strained silicon sector is driven by the fact that the semiconductor industry is fast approaching the physical limits in geometric scaling, forcing the players to look for alternative advanced technologies to achieve superior device performance. Strained silicon technology efficiently overcomes the geometric scaling limitation of transistors, and thus fits the bill perfectly.

Strained Silicon: A Global Strategic Business report

The ever-expanding technological horizon and emergence of newer technologies at rapid pace has drastically reduced the payback period of invested capital for the device manufacturers worldwide. The product life of a semiconductor based device too has gone down drastically to the range of 18-24 months. Additionally, the investment required for establishing a state-of-the art manufacturing facility too has gone up rapidly, resulting in shortening of the gap between the payback period and active productive life of the acquired assets. Thus, it becomes imperative for the manufacturers to look for options to be able to utilize their assets for a longer period, yet remain competitive in the market in the technological font. Thus, strained silicon technology perfectly fits the bill by enabling manufacturers to stretch the life of their facility, while keeping pace with technology.

The global market for strained silicon is expected to cross $3.5 billion by 2015, as stated by the new market research report on strained silicon. Strained silicon provides the manufacturers a potent option to increase the performance of their device without adopting newer technology, by means of increasing the number of transistors on the chip. Thus, the usage of strained silicon is set to grow many folds in near future, as more and more device manufacturers across various domains, are showing interest towards strained silicon related material technologies.

Key players dominating the Global Strained Silicon Market include Soitec S.A., Silicon Genesis Corporation, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited, Applied Materials, Inc., ASM International NV, AmberWave Systems Corporation, Atmel Corporation, CEVA, Inc., AMD, Intel, IBM, Isonics Corporation, International Rectifier Corp., Micron Technology Inc., Mitsubishi Materials Corporation., Renesas Technology Corporation, Shanghai Simgui Technology Co., Ltd , Siltronic Ag, and United Microelectronic Corporation, among others.

The report titled "Strained Silicon: A Global Strategic Business report" announced by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., provides a comprehensive review of industry overview, product overview, product introductions/innovations, profiles of major players, and recent industry activity. The report analyzes market data and provides analytics in value (US$) for the global market.
