Market outlook of the photoresist market

Photoresist materials are used during the manufacturing of semiconductor ICs and PCBs. Therefore, as the electronic device industry grows, the demand for semiconductor ICs for different applications, such as telecommunication, consumer electronic devices, memory devices, and sensor devices, increases, thereby, driving the demand for the photoresist market. Technavio€™s market research analysts expect the global photoresist market to grow at a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period.

The demand for compact electronic devices has been increasing in almost every sector, be it telecommunication devices, automotive, industrial manufacturing, and healthcare. This trend has driven the semiconductor ICs manufacturers to invest on R&D, to reduce the size and increase the performance of ICs, which have led to the emergence of MEMS and 3D chip packaging. Thus, the miniaturization of electronic devices will have a significant impact on semiconductor device manufacturers, as the compact ICs will create a demand for finer patterning, which will indirectly generate the need for ArF and KrF during the forecast period.

Segmentation by type and analysis of - ArF Dry, ArF Immersion, KrF, and g- and i-line

As of 2014, the ArF (ArF Dry and ArF Immersion) segment was the largest revenue contributor to the photoresist market, accounting for a revenue share of more than 41%. The main reason behind the market dominance of ArF excimer photoresists is for their miniaturization of the semiconductor ICs.
