The Vacuum pump is a device that removes gas molecules from a sealed volume in order to leave behind a partial vacuum. They are essential pieces of equipment for various industries including semiconductor, coating, packaging, chemical processing, and metals processing. They are used for processes that require an evacuated environment inside a vacuum chamber like vapor deposition, evaporation of surfaces, sputtering, and material modification in vacuum annealing. The global vacuum pump market is dominated by dry vacuum pumps like turbomolecular pumps, cryogenic vacuum pumps, positive displacement pumps, and entrapment pumps. Roughing pumps are also commonly used as they act as a primary vacuum pump to attain a high vacuum.
The global Vacuum Pump Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 7.5 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10.% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The “Vacuum Pump Market is Expected to be Driven by Rising Adoption in the Semiconductor Industry” as highlighted in the heading. The growing demand for semiconductors from the consumer electronics and automotive industries is driving significant investments in fab capacity expansions worldwide. This is fueling the demand for vacuum pumps in various semiconductor vacuum processing applications such as physical vapor deposition, ion implantation, reactive ion etching, and vacuum furnaces.
