i-line Lithography Market

i-line Lithography Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

i-line Lithography Market: Introduction

  • Lithography is the process used in micro fabrication to pattern parts of a thin film. In this process, light is used to transfer the geometric pattern from photo mask to light sensitive chemical on the substrate. This lithography process is also called the optical lithography or UV lithography.
  • i-line lithography uses ultraviolet light with exposure wavelength of 365 nanometers. In this optics, a high pressure mercury vapor lamp is used. This offers superior performance and cost advantage to the manufacturer. i-line lithography equipment are utilized in industries such as semiconductor manufacturing, and automotive.
  • i-line lithography also offers efficient technology for imaging large chip features. The combination of high productivity and advanced technology has helped i-line lithography to remain an essential technology for chipmakers.

Expansion of semiconductor industry is fueling the market

  • Semiconductors such as memory chips are very important for emerging technologies. Semiconductors are used in various emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, and 5G, as they are used to power the technologies that enrich the lives of consumers.
  • An increase in manufacturing of semiconductor components and chips is fueling the demand for i-line lithography equipment. Moreover, chip shortages across industries is likely to further boost the semiconductor industry.

LED devices to dominate global market

  • Adoption of LED is increasing across the globe owing to its advantages such as energy efficiency and promotion of this technology by governments. Applications for LED devices are increasing and hence, manufacturers are adopting better strategies.
  • The lithography equipment, especially i-line, are used in LED and other packaging processes. These are employed in highly demanding semiconductor applications. Hence, these factors are fueling the i-line lithography market.

Market in Asia Pacific to expand significantly

  • In terms of region, the global i-line lithography market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • The i-line lithography market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at the maximum CAGR during the forecast period.
  • This growth is attributed to a wide range of applications, adoption of i-line lithography by some developing economies such China, and growing semiconductor Industry. Thus, the factors are expected to increase the demand for i-line lithography products.
  • The i-line lithography market in North America and Europe is also estimated to expand at a high growth rate, after Asia Pacific, due to extensive applications in the semiconductor industry, and investments in research and development. The market in Middle East & Africa to projected to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period.
