The report is titled “Photoresists (g-line and i-line, KrF, ArF Dry, ArF Immersion) and Photoresist Ancillaries (Anti-reflective Coatings, Photoresist Developers, Edge Bead Removers and Others) Market for Semiconductors & Integrated Circuits, Printed Circuit Boards and Other Applications - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020” and is available on the company website for sale. The global photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market is examined in great detail in a recent market intelligence report published by Transparency Market Research.
The report states that the flourishing semiconductors industry is a key growth driver for the photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market. The market, which had a valuation of US$3 bn in 2013, is projected to expand at a healthy 6.2% CAGR between 2014 and 2020 and rise to US$4.6 bn by 2020.
Photoresists comprise an essential component in the production of high-performance printed circuit boards and semiconductor chips, the demand for which has seen a constant rise in the past few years owing to the soaring popularity of dynamic display technologies and high-performance electronics. This has significantly benefitted the global photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market.
However, the market’s overall growth has been hindered to a certain extent owing to certain occupational and environmental health hazards. Widened and constantly rising interest of technical and scientific communities in new-generation nanoelectromechanical systems is expected to offer significant growth opportunities to the global photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market in the next few years.
On the basis of product type, the photoresists market is segmented into g-line and i-line photoresists, ArF dry photoresists, KrF photoresists, and ArF immersion photoresists. Types of photoresist ancillaries examined in the report include antireflective coatings, edge bead removers, photoresist developers, and other types such as specialty solvents and primers or adhesion promoters.
ArF immersion photoresists accounted for the largest share in the global photoresists market in 2013. The rising trend of semiconductor downsizing in the electronics industry is expected to drive the segment over the report’s forecast period. In the global photoresist ancillaries market, the segment of antireflective coatings led the market, accounting a share of over 30% in 2013.
