The global patterning material market size in terms of value is projected to reach USD 3.86 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 5.85% from 2015 to 2020. Patterning materials or photoresists are light sensitive materials used in the photolithography (device patterning process) processes to form patterned coating on a surface for wafers, usually silicon wafers, used in the electronics & semiconductors. Several chemicals such as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and polymethyl glutarimide (PMGI), and novolac are also used to enhance the material property in the patterning process. Lights used to get the desired pattern print on the material are generally UV, Deep UV, and, i and g lines having wavelengths ranging from 350nm to 450nm. Exposure to the desired light wavelength induces photochemical reactions that change the solubility of the light-exposed area on the photoresist film resulting into pattern formation. The pattern is then imprinted on the wafer through etching process.

The major driving factors for the market are the rapidly growing Integrated Circuit (IC) market and technological advancement facilitating the era of nanodevices. The new era of miniaturized semiconductor devices also acts as growth driver for the photoresists market. The major challenge for the market is to encounter the cost-related problems associated with the lithography process. The major opportunities for the market are present in the developing economies that are expected to possess strong demand for electronic products such as mobile, tablets, and so on in the near future.

Market players have focus on enhancing their product portfolio through new product/technology development in the period from 2010 to 2015. Other development strategies adopted by market players are capacity expansions, agreements & collaborations, joint ventures, and mergers & acquisitions.

Patterning materials or photoresists are light sensitive materials used in the photolithography (device patterning process) processes to form patterned coating on a surface for wafers, usually silicon wafers, used in the electronics & semiconductors. Several chemicals such as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and polymethyl glutarimide (PMGI), and novolac are also used to enhance the material property in the patterning process. Lights used to get the desired pattern print on the material are generally UV, Deep UV, and, i and g lines having wavelengths ranging from 350nm to 450nm. Exposure to the desired light wavelength induces photochemical reactions that change the solubility of the light-exposed area on the photoresist film resulting into pattern formation. The pattern is then imprinted on the wafer through etching process. The new era of miniaturized semiconductor devices acts as growth driver for the photoresists market.

The key types of photoresist used are positive 193nm immersion resist, positive 193 nm dry resist, positive 248nm resist, i-line & g-line resist, and others. The key applications of the photoresist include automotive sensors, DRAM, glass printed circuit boards, MEMS & NEMS devices, and others.

The total market size for patterning material is projected to reach USD 3,862.44 Million by 2020 from USD 2,750.00 Million in 2014, at a CAGR of 5.85% between 2015 and 2020. Globally, Asia-Pacific is projected to have the largest market size in terms of value as well as volume by 2020, followed by the North America region. Rest of the World (RoW) region is projected to be the fastest growing market, at a CAGR of 9.56%, by value, from 2015 to 2020, owing to rise in consumption in the region, where end-user markets for patterning materials is growing steadily in Brazil , Mexico. The European market for patterning materials is mature and is projected to grow at a rate of about 3.15% in terms of value.

The major driving factors for the market are the rapidly growing Integrated Circuit (IC) market and technological advancement facilitating the era of nanodevices. The major challenge for the market is to encounter the cost-related problems associated with the lithography process. The major opportunities for the market are present in the developing economies that are expected to possess strong demand for electronic products such as mobile, tablets, and so on in the near future.
