Market share in 2021 at 75% according to Gartner[1] / MOCVD Market Grows 28% to USD 561 Million in 2021

Herzogenrath, May 25, 2022? AIXTRON SE (FSE: AIXA, ISIN DE000A0WMPJ6), the world’s leading supplier of deposition equipment for the semiconductor industry, announced today that AIXTRON has been able to increase its market share in MOCVD in 2021 and is largest MOCVD provider[2] tools worldwide for the sixth consecutive year. Market research firm Gartner determined that AIXTRON had a 75% market share, while Chinese and American competitors had significantly lower market shares of 14% and 11%, respectively. At the same time, the global MOCVD tools market grew by 28% in 2021 to reach a total of USD 561 million (2020: USD 438 million).

AIXTRON’s MOCVD tools are accepted as industry standard tools in many markets. AIXTRON’s equipment is used in the production of gallium nitride or silicon carbide power semiconductors, lasers for 3D detection and optical data communication, or in the production of red LEDs. Increasingly, it is also being used in the manufacture of micro LEDs.

“AIXTRON has placed a clear emphasis on MOCVD technology for compound semiconductors in recent years. These devices offer immense advantages over traditional silicon-based semiconductors. As a result, devices produced on our equipment are conquering more and more new areas of application. This opens up important growth areas for us – over many years and across our entire technology portfolio”, says Dr. Felix Grawert, Managing Director of AIXTRON SE.

AIXTRON’s growth is driven by the megatrends of sustainability, digitalization and electrification. AIXTRON is a key catalyst for the increasing electrification of our world and the reduction of energy consumption through energy-efficient power electronics.
