DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Semiconductor Stepper System Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global semiconductor stepper system market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 0.88% during the period 2016-2020.
A semiconductor stepper system is an important component of photolithography. It is used to project or print circuits on wafers step by step. The lithographic lens projects light from a light source, which is passed through a mask that already has a circuit imprinted on it. The light is exposed on the wafer step by step, printing the circuit on the wafer.
An increase in the cost of litho functions with the introduction of advanced next-generation technologies is an emerging trend in the lithography system market.
According to the report, growing demand for the miniaturization and integration of semiconductor ICs is one of the important factors driving growth in the stepper system market, as semiconductor ICs require accurate and precise lithography equipment for processing denser wafers.
Further, the report states that the introduction of 3D negative-AND (NAND) might hamper the market's growth, as its trailing edge designs reduce the use of lithography equipment and focus on deposition and etch equipment.
