Future of Nanometrics

Nanometrics is the foremost provider of high performance, highly developed, inspection systems, and process control metrology, used for the most part in the production of semiconductors and some further solid-state devices, like the discrete and data components for storage, power management components, and high-brightness LEDs. The integrated and automated metrology systems of Nanometrics measure the topography, overlay registration, device structures, critical dimensions, and a variety of thin film material properties, including film thickness as well as optical, electrical, and material properties. This company’s process control resolutions are all set up through the fabrication procedure, starting from the front-end-of-line substrate production, to a high-volume fabrication of the semiconductors and further devices, to the highly developed wafer-scale packaging appliances. The systems in Nanometrics facilitate advanced procedure control for device producers, giving out enhanced device yields at a lowered time for the manufacturing cycle, thus sustaining the augmented manufactured goods' life cycle in a semiconductor market.

Industry vulnerability to disruption: 

<p>Belonging to the semiconductor sector means this company will be affected directly and indirectly by a number of disruptive opportunities and challenges over the coming decades. While described in detail within Quantumrun’s special reports, these disruptive trends can be summarized along the following broad points:</p>

<p>*First off, internet penetration will grow from 50 percent in 2015 to over 80 percent by the late-2020s, allowing regions across Africa, South America, the Middle East and parts of Asia to experience their first Internet revolution. These regions will represent the biggest growth opportunities for tech companies, and the semiconductor companies that supply them, over the next two decades.<br />
*Similar to the point above, the introduction of 5G internet speeds in the developed world by the late-2020s will enable a range of new technologies to finally achieve mass commercialization, from augmented reality to autonomous vehicles to smart cities. These technologies will also demand ever more powerful computational hardware.<br />
*As a result, semiconductor companies will continue to push Moore’s law forward to accommodate the ever growing computational capacity and data storage needs of the consumer and business markets.<br />
*The mid-2020s will also see significant breakthroughs in quantum computing that will enable game-changing computational abilities applicable across many sectors.<br />
*The shrinking cost and increasing functionality of advanced manufacturing robotics will lead to further automation of semiconductor factory assembly lines, thereby improving manufacturing quality and costs.</p>
