The global KrF photoresist market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for semiconductor devices and miniaturization of electronic components. Additionally, the growing demand for advanced packaging solutions is also contributing to the growth of this market. Based on type, positive photoresist held a major share of the global KrF photoresist market in 2017 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its superior properties such as high resolution, etching selectivity, and low defect density as compared with negative photoresists.
The KrF photoresist is a type of photoresist that uses the krypton fluoride (KrF) laser to produce high-resolution images. The importance of KrF photoresist is that it can produce very high-resolution images, making it ideal for use in microfabrication and other applications where precision is important.
Positive photoresist, also known as photo-resistance or photo-polymerization is the resistance of a material to light. It's characterized by the absorption of light and change in physical properties as a result. The most common effect is an increase in thickness when exposed to light; however, other changes such as structural changes or phase change can occur depending on the type of positive photoresist used and its application.
The KrF photoresist is a type of semiconductor material that can be used in the manufacturing of integrated circuits (IC) and as an insulating layer over wafers during KrF laser production. The KrF photoresist has applications in the packaging, PCB laminates, flexible electronics, and automotive industries. It is also used for making optical discs and compact flash cards.
The market is segmented into three applications, namely memory, logic/MPU and others. In 2017, the memory application dominated the global KrF photoresist market with a share of over 60% in terms of revenue. The growth can be attributed to factors such as increasing demand for flash memories across various end-use industries including mobile phones and consumer electronics. Moreover, technological advancements in fabrication processes have enabled manufacturers to produce smaller devices containing more storage capacity which has driven demand further.
Logic/MPU application is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to its rising use in numerous electronic products such as smartphones and wearable devices among others which are expected drive industry expansion over next few years. Other applications include display technologies used for security purposes or used as an indicator light on vehicles or machinery among other uses that require a low power light source will also propel product demand during future period thereby driving overall industry expansionary trends within regional scope over next few years (2030).
Asia Pacific KrF photoresist market is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period. The growth of the region can be attributed to increasing demand for advanced semiconductor technologies in countries such as China and India. In addition, rising investments by various government organizations in R&D activities related to electronics are anticipated to fuel industry expansion over the next eight years.
The Asia Pacific held a dominant share in 2016 and is likely to continue its dominance during the forecast period owing to high memory chip production coupled with low manufacturing cost associated with photoresists used for patterning on ICs compared with other regions. Moreover, favorable government policies encouraging domestic level private investment (LPPI) are projected boost regional market development during the same period.
