Semiconductor ceramics include ceramic material and ceramic parts / tools in IC fabrication. Because Taiwan foundry capacity is the best in the world, the demand for semiconductor ceramics is growing as rapidly as the growth of IC production. China is determined to establish its IC industry, which may become a major supplier of ICs to the world. Hence, China’s market for semiconductor ceramics is something to be expected. This research gave a thorough description of the background and current status of global semiconductor ceramic industry. The main goal was to establish a Multi-Criteria Decision Making assessment model, which can be used to evaluate semiconductor ceramic suppliers by vendors or representatives of semiconductor equipment manufacturers. Major semiconductor equipment vendors from Japan and the US were surveyed to come up with weighting factors for each evaluation criteria. The study results showed that a supplier’s technical capability is the most critical consideration. Among all criteria, “price and payment terms” has the highest weight, “quality stability” has the next highest weight, and “technical superiority” has the third highest weight. Comparing the five world leading semiconductor ceramic suppliers, Kyocera has the highest utility score according to overall survey responses.
