The global photomask market to grow at a CAGR of 3.27% during the period 2017-2021.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global photomask market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers two major revenue streams in the global photomask market: one from the sale of equipment used for the photomasking process and the other from the sale of photomask inspection equipment. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One trend in the market is shorter replacement cycle of electronic gadgets. With technological advances and the increase in disposable incomes, the buying pattern for consumer electronics is constantly changing. Due to the vast differentiation in the electronics market, most end customers are expected to upgrade to new and improved electronics product faster when compared to the older generation.
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for high chip density. The density of the chips refers to the number of transistors built into a single chip. A high-density chip has many transistors that will enable it to perform at higher functionality, whereas a low-density chip has a few transistors and many chips are required to increase the functionality. The increasing need and demand for SoC are increasing the need for high chip density.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is technological sophistication. The photomask market encountered advances in both technology and evolving standards. The continuous shrinking geometries of semiconductor ICs have made the manufacturing of photomasks more complex in recent years. In addition, advances in semiconductor and high-performance electronics fabrication methods are adversely affecting the demand for photomasks.
