Luton, Bedfordshire, UK, August 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Accuracy Consultancy, the market research and consultancy wing of Improve Digital Consultancy Private Limited, has completed and published the final copy of the research report detailed information about the Silicon-on-Insulator Market.

Global Silicon-on-Insulator Market is expected to reach USD 4.34 Billion by 2029, from USD 1.26 Billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 14.7% from 2022 to 2029.

Instead of conventional silicon in the semiconductor manufacturing business, the silicon-on-insulator (SOI) market specifies the use of a stacked silicon-insulator-silicon substrate. Without retooling or additional equipment in the existing installation, this technology is compatible with the manufacturing process now used in the sector. Silicon on Insulator technology has a number of advantages, including excellent performance, power savings, reduced leakage, no latching, compatibility, and ease of scaling.

Traditional CMOS technology based on bulk silicon wafers has recently faced competition from SOI technology, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period in all market segments including RF, analog, general purpose and ultra-low power computing, photonics, memory and MEMS. In the past, more than 60.0% of mobile devices and 80.0% of game consoles had SOI chips.
