Global Photolithography Equipment Market to Reach US$ 21.2 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Rising Adoption of Consumer Electronics

Published on Jun 27, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Photolithography Equipment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global photolithography equipment market reached a value of US$ 12.3 Billion in 2021. Photolithography involves exposing a photosensitive polymer to a light source that creates a pattern on a substrate or wafer. Some of the commonly used photolithography equipment includes mask aligners, steppers, direct writing tools and water inspection tools. Mask aligners are utilized to properly align the photomask on the wafer, steppers aid in transferring the image to the wafer, direct writing tools help in writing directly on a wafer via using laser beans and wafer inspection tools are used to detect physical defects. The demand for photolithography equipment is increasing due to their rising demand from the defense and automobile industries.  

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
