DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Asia Pacific Photoresist and Photoresist Ancillaries Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact & Regional Analysis By Photoresist Type, Photoresist Ancillaries Type, Application, & Country" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Asia-Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market was valued at US$ 1,919.2 million in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during 2019-2027 to reach US$ 3,205.8 million by 2027.
The electronic industry is witnessing steady growth in developed and developing countries. The companies operating in this field use photoresist and photoresist ancillaries in products such as advanced telephones, computer systems, and related accessories, televisions and home entertainment equipment, and electronic control and monitoring devices, which have applications in many industrial and scientific areas.
The Asia-Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market, based on photoresist type, is segmented into ArF immersion photoresist, ArF dry photoresist, KrF photoresist, and G-line & I-line photoresist. The ArF immersion photoresist segment holds the largest share of the Asia Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market. ArF immersion photoresist are defined as the photoresist materials in the 193 nm range and are widely used to manufacture products such as smart phones, PCs, automobiles, electrical appliances, and others. They may be categorized by 65 nm/120 nm pitch dense contact hole or 65 nm/180 nm pitch semi-dense contact hole, and 65 nm ISO contact hole. They are considered as an excellent process window displaying critical dimension (CD) uniformity allowing better profile shape of the product. Also, the overall process costs are minimized as the topcoat is used in these materials. Further, they exhibit superior DOF margin, and excellent lithography with low Mask Error Enhancement Factor (MEEF).
The Asia Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market, based on photoresist ancillaries type, is segmented into anti-reflective coatings, remover, developer, and others. The anti reflective coatings segment holds the largest share of the Asia-Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market. The edge bead removers are extensively deployed in photolithography mechanism for eliminating the edge bead build-ups at the time of spring coating process. Various industrial capabilities have established integrated edge-bead removal system within their spin stations. These removers are comparatively more effective on multi-layer products than on the single-layer devices.
Edge bead removers are purposely designed to immediately initiate the process of removal by directing a stream of the removers near the edge of the wafer when it is spinning. Under the controlled spin speed and proper handling of edge bead remover's nozzle position, the resist edge bead is eliminated. Several companies are involved in manufacturing of a complete line of edge bead remover solutions that can offer world-class edge bead removal along with ensuring maintenance of the industry standard for purity, packaging, and environmental protection. Companies such as Dupont and Kayaku Advanced Materials, Inc. are involved in providing solutions related to edge bead removers.
The Asia Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market, based on application, is segmented into semiconductors and ICS, LCDS, printed circuit boards, others, and others. The semiconductors and ICs segment holds the largest share of the Asia Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market. Semiconductors are known as the devices composed of materials that perform under specific conditions. ICs are the smaller version of circuit boards that are formed of several small electronic components including capacitors, resistors, and transistors. ICs find application in several electronic devices, such as PCs & laptops, smart phones, mobile devices, and other electronic devices. The surge in demand for the high component-density of devices has propelled the increased utilization of photoresist materials. The higher density of electronic devices boosts its multi-functionality along with speed and minimizes its surface area.
The Asia Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market is segmented into China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and the Rest of Asia Pacific. Taiwan holds the largest share of the Asia Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market, followed by China. Taiwan being a developing economy, several emerging companies are venturing into the market with the need for cost-efficient manufacturing units. Taiwan has the availability of cheap labor; thus, several international chemical manufacturers are setting up their production units in Taiwan. The growing population is further propelling the demand for chemical, consumer goods and electrical products, which, in turn, lead to the photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market growth in Taiwan. Further, the chemicals industry is among the fastest-growing industries with strong market potential for international companies.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Photoresist and Photoresist Ancillaries Market
COVID-19 outbreak first began in Wuhan (China) in December 2019, and since then it has spread across the globe at a fast pace. China, Italy, Iran, Spain, the Republic of Korea, France, Germany, and the US are among the worst affected countries in terms confirmed cases and reported deaths as of March 2020. The COVID-19 outbreak has affected economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The overall market breakdown due to COVID-19 is also affecting the growth of the photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market due to shutting down of factories, obstacle in supply chain, and downturn in world economy.
A few players present in the Asia Pacific photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market are MERCK KGaA, Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd., Tokyo Ohka Kogyo Co. Ltd., Micro Resist Technology GmbH, Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd., DJ Microlaminates, Inc., and DuPont de Nemours, Inc.
