The Global Vacuum Valve Market was valued at USD 1.2 Bn in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 2.1 Bn by 2027, with a growing CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period.
Vacuum valves are used to maintain vacuum in the closed system. Vacuum valves are used for diverse applications such as isolation, ventilation, conduction, and gas flow in chambers. A series of pressure switches are also set up in most lines with vacuum valves (other than manual valves) to control the flow and convert the internal furnace pressure as demanded through the method being run.
The increasing demand for consumer devices such as smartphones, TVs, tablets, and laptops coupled with the adoption of AI and deployment of 5G cellular networks is expected to drive the growth of the vacuum valve market during the forecast period. For instance, according to secondary sources, by 2025, the number of 5G subscriptions across the globe is expected to reach 3Bn. These development require advanced semiconductor components and devices. Thus, processes in the semiconductors manufacturing industry must be upgraded to meet the needs for higher memory output and better performance, thus producing IC chips of the highest quality. The IC chips require higher vacuum purity and accordingly, need to be manufactured under vacuum. The demand for vacuum valves in the semiconductor industry is specifically driven by the reduction in semiconductor node sizes to get greater processing power into a smaller space. As node sizes shrink and chip architectures change, the need for purer vacuums and the wide variety of process steps under vacuum also increases, therefore producing demand for vacuum valves.
