About Lithography System
Lithography, which is also termed as ultraviolet lithography or photolithography, is a process used for the manufacture of integrated circuits (ICs), which is used in microfabrication to pattern parts of a thin film or the bulk of a substrate.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global lithography systems market to grow at a CAGR of 5.14% during the period 2018-2022.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global lithography systems market for 2018-2022. To calculate the market size, the report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Lithography Systems Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global lithography systems market: ASML, Canon, NIKON, NuFlare Technology, SÜSS MICROTEC, and Veeco Instruments.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is rising investments for introducing 450-mm sized wafer. The larger size of the wafers implies larger surface area indicating the production of the higher number of chips at comparatively lower manufacturing costs. To develop the 450-mm wafer and manufacture the processing equipment, technology giants such as Intel, TSMC, Samsung, IBM, GLOBALFOUNDRIES have undertaken a consortium named G450C.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing investments in new fabs. One of the major drivers for the growth of the global lithography systems market is the increasing investments that are occurring toward construction of new fabs and expanding older facilities.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is technical challenges regarding construction of EUV lithography systems. EUV lithography systems were expected to be commercialized almost a decade ago, but the difficulty to manufacture these lithography systems posed several challenges, which prevented its commercialization at a global scale.
ASML, Canon, NIKON, NuFlare Technology, SÜSS MICROTEC, and Veeco Instruments.
