By process, the EUV segment will lead the market over the forecast period as the microprocessors developed using this process are powerful, advanced, and highly efficient. Advances in AI, IoT, and 5G are also boosting the demand for EUV photolithography.

By application, the back-end segment will dominate the market over the forecast period for high demand for efficient and advanced integrated circuits.

COVID-19 Analysis

The emergence of COVID-19 has declined the growth of the photolithography equipment market in 2020, and is likely to recover by the end of 2021. The implementation of complete or partial lockdown across various countries worldwide is the key reason for the fall in the growth rate. Lockdown in different countries has disrupted the worldwide supply chain that in turn, has reduced the need for various consumer electronics. Besides, the reduction in demand for wafer has negatively impacted the demand for photolithography equipment during the pandemic.

Key Players

Eminent players profiled in the global photolithography market report include Samsung Electronics (South Korea), Carl Zeiss AG (Germany), ASML Holding NV (Netherlands), Applied Materials, Inc. (US), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (Taiwan), JEOL Ltd (Japan), Rudolph Technologies, Inc. (US), NIL TECHNOLOGY (Denmark), Shanghai Micro Electronics Equipment (Group) Co., Ltd. (SMEE) (China), and EV Group (EVG) (Austria). Apart from the aforementioned players, the others include Veeco Instruments Inc. (US), SÜSS MICROTEC SE (Germany), NuFlare Technology Inc. (Japan), Tokyo Electron Limited (Japan), Vistec Electron Beam GmbH (Germany), Omega Optical, Inc. (US), Nikon Corporation (Japan), and Canon Inc. (Japan).

Regional Analysis

APAC to Spearhead Photolithography Market

The APAC region will spearhead the market over the forecast period. The presence of several wafer fabrication facilities and semiconductor equipment manufacturers like Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited, Shanghai Micro Electronics Equipment (Group) Co., Ltd, and Tokyo Electron Limited, the adoption of miniaturization techniques to develop portable electronic devices, the presence of several semiconductor foundries in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and China, increasing investments for the development of foundries and memories in China, the availability of several power stations for high voltage power, exponential rise in population, and the increasing need for power modules are adding to the global photolithography market share in the region. South Korea, Taiwan, and China have the utmost market share.
