Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Etching Machine Market
- Increasing cases of COVID-19 across the globe is resulting in economic slowdown. The impact of COVID-19 is being absorbed in each sector of the economy, including the global semiconductor industry. However, COVID-19 does not highly affect the demand for equipment. For instance, in April 2020, Palomar Technologies announced that it is experiencing demand for manufacturing critical semiconductor components. The company saw acceleration of orders of its 3880 etching machine for remote machine equipment, medical devices, and robotics. Hence, demand for equipment has not dropped due to COVID-19. This, in turn, is projected to propel the global etching machine market in the next few years.
North America to Hold Major Share of the Global Etching Machine Market
- In terms of region, the global etching machine market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
- North America dominated the global etching machine market in 2019, due to presence of well-established and technologically advanced manufacturers in the region. The U.S. is a key market in North America, due to increasing production of electronics in the region.
- The etching machine market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. This can be attributed to mass production of electronic products, such as wearable devices, smartphones, and white goods, in China and Taiwan.
