'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'
Photoresists are light-sensitive materials that are primarily used in fabrication and packaging of semiconductors, integrated circuits, flat panel displays and printed circuit boards. Photoresists play an important role in photolithography and photo-patterning process. Photoresists consist of resin or polymer, solvent and photo-sensitizer. These are segmented into positive and negative photoresists based on developing option. Photoresists are applied on the surface of a wafer and further exposed to light of pre-determined wavelength. Photoresist ancillaries are supporting materials that are used to improve the efficiency and resolution of the photolithography process. These are used right from the start of the process such as adhesion promotion of photoresists to wafer substrate in order to develop photoresists to remove excessive photoresists after the developer treatment.
Growth in semiconductor industry and dynamic flat panel display technology trends are expected to be the major driving factors for growth of the photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market. However, environmental and occupational health hazards associated with photoresists and photoresist ancillaries component is expected to hamper market growth. The upcoming nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) are anticipated to provide opportunities for players in the market.
