The research report highlights the growth potential of the global SOC (Spin on Carbon) Hardmasks market. SOC (Spin on Carbon) Hardmasks are expected to show stable growth in the future market. However, product differentiation, reducing costs, and supply chain optimization remain crucial for the widespread adoption of SOC (Spin on Carbon) Hardmasks. Market players need to invest in research and development, forge strategic partnerships, and align their offerings with evolving consumer preferences to capitalize on the immense opportunities presented by the SOC (Spin on Carbon) Hardmasks market.

Spin-on Carbon (SOC) hardmasks can be used in multilayer lithography processes with high etch resistance, low cost of ownership, low defects, high alignment accuracy, good gap filling and topography planarization. SOC is a high carbon-containing polymer solution. As a coating material, the polymer needs to be dissolved in an organic solvent and insoluble in the upper layer of the coating after curing. The high carbon content (>80%) of the SOC is important for good etch resistance.

Spin-on Carbon (SOC) hardmasks are an increasingly key component of the micro-chip fabrication process. They are frequently used to improve the resists’ selectivity to silicon during plasma etching. Furthermore, as chip architectures become increasingly complex the use of hardmasks to improve the aspect ratio of features in silicon is critical. In this context, the ‘aspect ratio’ is the ratio between the height of a feature on a silicon wafer and its width. For many emerging multi-layer chip architectures, such as tri-layer etch-stacks, a large height to width ratio is required to maintain small lateral features across multiple vertical layers.

Global key players of SOC (Spin on Carbon) hardmasks include Samsung SDI, Merck Group, JSR, Brewer Science, etc. The top three players hold a share over 75%.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market, has a share about 62%, followed by North America, and Europe, with share 18% and 16%, separately.

In terms of product type, hot-temperature spin on carbon hardmask is the largest segment, occupied for a share of 80.9%, and in terms of application, semiconductors (excl. Memory) has a share about 50 percent.
