SOIAlthough the SOI market only about 1.4 percent of total silicon demand in 2007, the wafer technology is expected to have a CAGR of 11 percent and reach $1.1 billion in revenues by 2012, according to a new report from VLSI Research.

Sales in 2008 are expected to be slightly down from 2007 but will see double-digit growths stimulated by the 45nm transition by existing SOI users as well as potential new customers, the market research firm said. The market had been growing at a CAGR of 36 percent for the past three years.

From a market share perspective, Soitec continues to be the leading player with a reported 67 percent worldwide share. Shin Etsu Handotai, which licenses Soitec’s ‘Smart Cut’ remains the number two player in this market.
