Low thermal stability of metal-organic compounds has lent an edge as molecular precursors. Sputtering techniques and other methods are used to deposit Phase Change Materials (PCM) which are weak regarding the uniformity of deposition. Thus, substitute methods provide benefits such as compositional control and industrial scaling, which in turn drives the high-k and ALD/CVD metal precursor market demand.

Several manufacturers are now shifting their focus towards chemical, dielectric and optical properties of hybrid inorganic-organic films in order to minimize manufacturing costs. Increasing intellectual property rights (IPR) protection laws will play a key role in IPR filings on chemical designs and precursor material composition. Strategic alliances along the high-k and ALD/CVD metal precursor market value chain are required to effectively provide chemicals for the equipment in terms of new molecules and hardware. Cost-effective and seamless fabrication of semiconductor devices for complicated 3D architectures have widened the scope for extensive R&D to develop high-quality sophisticated precursors in cylinders. Government initiatives and regulations regarding semiconductor device manufacturing will provide a boost to the high-k and ALD/CVD metal precursor market share over the forecast timeframe.

Nanotechnologies and improving innovative methodologies coupled with rising surface topography complexity have led to developments such as maintaining uniformity on thin film surface. Increasing LED applications will positively impact growth. Delayed or slow formation of thin films may hinder the industry share during the projected timeline.

Gates are forecast to grow at over 20% CAGR, and possess significant potential to replace silicon oxide in the 65nm CMOS space. Properties such as compatibility with gate electrode material, chemical and thermal stability, high dielectric constant and interface state density make it a preferable choice thus driving the demand for this segment.

Asia Pacific was the leading regional industry, with China accounting for over 35% of the high-k and ALD/CVD metal precursor market share. Growing semiconductor demand from BRIC countries due to rising consumption of consumer electronics and durables coupled with factors like low cost, portability will drive the regional demand.
