Global Photomask Market 2017-2021

Global Photomask Market 2017-2021

About Photomask

Photomask is a process of using lithography techniques to transfer circuits and display patterns onto semiconductors, displays, or microelectromechanical systems. Photomask inspection is a process of cross-checking the efficiency and preciseness of the transferred patterns.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global photomask market to grow at a CAGR of 3.27% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Photomask Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global photomask market: Applied Materials, Dai Nippon Printing, KLA-Tencor, Lasertec Corporation, Photronics, and Toppan Photomasks.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Compugraphics Photomask Solutions, HOYA, SK-Electronics, NIPPON FILCON, HTA Photomask, and PKL.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “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.
