Adeka Eyes New Advanced IC Material Plant in Korea

ADEKA Corporation announced it will construct a new manufacturing building inside its 3rd Jeonju Plant of ADEKA Korea Corporation. Particularly, the new plant will provide the company with a space for a mass production system of new materials for next-generation semiconductors.

Semiconductors are essential to realizing an advanced ICT society that harnesses megatrends such as 5G communications and AI. Thus, semiconductors are becoming more highly integrated due to miniaturization, faster information processing, and lower power consumption. For that reason, semiconductors need advanced materials to support demands.

Reinforces Production Capacity

In the ADEKA Group’s medium-term management plan ADX 2023 (FY2021-2023), the “next-generation ICT field” is one of the important fields. Hence, ADEKA is actively investing in cutting-edge semiconductor materials. Particularly, the company is actively investing in cutting-edge semiconductor materials. At the same time, it is also building up research and development and a production system in Taiwan.

Moreover, ADEKA KOREA CORPORATION (ADEKA KOREA CORPORATION) is actively making capital investments to increase production. In addition, it is also expanding its product lineup of the ADEKA Orcera series, a high dielectric material for cutting-edge semiconductor memory. Currently, it has the world’s No. 1 market share *.

The planned manufacturing building will enable ADEKA to set up a production system in a short time. Also, this will ensure a stable supply of materials for next-generation devices for mass production.

The company will construct the new building at its third factory in Jeonju, which it acquired in 2022.

Up until now, the manufacture of advanced semiconductor materials are at the Jeonju No. 2 Plant. However, when the new manufacturing building becomes operational, it will mass-produce materials for next-generation DRAM, next-generation logic, and NAND.

The ADEKA Group aims to become the world’s top semiconductor materials manufacturer by expanding its range of materials for semiconductor memory. alongside its main product as well as expanding into logic semiconductors.
