Resist Processing Equipment Market - Overview

Resist processing or the photoresist processing is the process of masking the areas that need to be retained or removed with the help of light sensitive film. Resist process includes a substrate that is coated with the thin layer of polymeric materials. The layers formed by resist processing performs functions such as protecting the substrate due to chemical attack during etching process and the precise pattern formation.  The resist processing equipment consists of three components; they are resin, inhibitor, and the solvent. The resin serves as the binder of the film. Inhibitor is the photoactive ingredient and the solvent helps to keep the resist in the liquid state until it is processed. The major steps included in the resist processing are dehydration and priming, resist coating, soft baking, exposure, development, and post development inspection. The resist processing equipment uses two type of coating the substrates. One is spray coasting and the other is spin coating. The resist processing obtained by the spin coating is smooth and can be adjusted according to their thickness more accurately. The spray coating offers the advantage of coating a random shape substrate where a spin coating is not feasible.

Resist Processing Equipment Market - Trends and Opportunities

The major driver that supports the global resist processing equipment market is the easy interface, process safety and low material consumption. The other parameters that contributes towards the growth of the resist processing equipment are larger spray coating area, high level personal safety, ultra compact design to minimize footprint and use of advanced technology for cleaning. The major restraining factor that restricts the growth of the resist processing equipment is the requirement of high cost of equipment. However, the sophisticated handling of wafer process and the highly effective optimized production process are expected to contribute towards the growth of the resist processing equipment market.
