Mask Inspection System is a fab equipments which is used before the lithography for the purpose of inspecting photo masks for defect identification during production of the semiconductor wafers. It is also being used for the R&D purposes. Increase in application of the semiconductor ICs in the segments like consumer electronics, automotive, & industries is prompting the IC vendors to increase their production scale. This is going to compel the vendors to request more Mask Inspection System for the purpose of ensuring maximum consistency of their contributions. The growth of mask inspection system market is highly reliant on the growth of consumer electronics and automotive market globally.
Printable defect-free mask, with defect mitigation technology is acting as a major growth driver for the mask inspection system market. Therefore, the growing need of exact coordination to create a defect mitigation technology is also one of the key factor anticipated to catalyze the growing demand of mask inspection system market during the forecast period. In addition, current inspection tool & print wafers on the EUV scanner for the purpose of verifying printability is also anticipated to increase the demand of mask inspection system in the upcoming years. In turn this is also projected to affect the mask inspection system market in a positive manner during the forecast period.
In spite of many driving factors, the mask inspection system market is expected to show a shrink and fluctuation in growth rate because of liquid penetrant testing is not without several disadvantages. Spurious indications, and the misreading of signals, can result in the unnecessary repairs, which is why a validated procedure should be applied when carrying out any ultrasonic examination are also one of the few restraining factors for the global mask inspection system market. The insertion of the EUVL into the high volume manufacturing (HVM) will benefit if the mask design optimization process is broadened to take into account. The inspection performance is going to create significant opportunity for mask inspection system market in the coming years. Apart from that the growth of usage of mask inspection system in inspection related optimization is also acting as an opportunity factor for the mask inspection system market in the forecast period.
For the purpose of doing in depth analysis, the mask inspection system market has been segmented on the basis of type, application and geography. Based on the type, the mask inspection system market has been segmented into two segments they are Die to Die (DD) Method & Die to Database (DB) Method. Based on the application, the mask inspection system market has been segmented into two categories those are Semiconductor Device Manufacturers & Mask Shops. Moreover, this report also provide cross functional analysis of all the above mentioned segment across different regions such as Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America. By type, the Die to Database (DB) Method segment is expected to capture largest market share in the forecast period. Rapid growth in the adoption of EUV masking in making of wafer is being used where very high mechanical strength is been required makes it the most appropriate choice for various end user applications. Geographically, the global mask inspection system market is mainly driven by Asia Pacific region. Growing demand of electricity in this particular region with heavy growth in consumer electronics industry and movement towards electric vehicle is driving the market of Asia Pacific region.
Some of the leading players operating in the mask inspection system market includes KLA-Tencor, Applied Materials, Lasertec, Carl Zeiss and ASML (HMI) among others.
