Photoresist & Photoresist Ancillaries Market: Insights
The worldwide market for photoresist & photoresist ancillaries will register a high growth rate in the coming years 2020-2026. A photoresist is a light-sensitive inorganic material that, upon exposure to ultraviolet light, changes its chemical structure. A photoresist ancillary offers a broad range of chemistries, such as photoresist strippers, anti-reflective coatings, developers, and edge bead removers. Due to their features, such as smaller, thinner and more energy-efficient, photoresists and photoresist ancillaries are typically used in the manufacture of flat-panel displays. Some of the key factors expected to drive the growth of the photoresist & photoresist ancillaries market are the growing production of nm-based chips along with the increasing demand for rapid diagnostic systems. Moreover, the growing material technological advancements combined with rising focus on the rapid growth in the semiconductor industry are also projected to fuel growth in the market. However, some of the factors obstructing market growth throughout the forecast period are high prices of photoresist materials and stringent government rules and regulations.
Photoresist Ancillaries & Photoresist Market: By Photoresist
Based on the analysis of the type of photoresist, this market can be explained into four segments namely: ARF immersion, KRF, ARF dry, G-line, and I-line. The ARF immersion form segment would have a significant market share over the estimated timeframe. To generate micro and nano-scale electronic components, ARF immersion grades are used. ARF photoresists are used to meet the criteria of innovative miniaturization technologies of the next generation. This is due to the increase in the recent trend of creating smaller electronic devices with expanded features during the projected timeframe.
Photoresist & Photoresist Ancillaries Market: By Photoresist Ancillaries
Based on the analysis of the type of photoresist ancillaries, this market can be explained into four segments namely: remover, anti-reflective coatings, and developer, among others.
