Lithography Systems Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

$ 1499


The global lithography systems market was worth more than US$ 8 Billion in 2017. The market is further projected to cross US$ 9 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of more than 1% during 2018-2023. Lithography is a printing process which is based on the immiscibility of grease and water. The inception of this process can be traced back to the late 1700s, when it was invented by Alois Senefelder. Earlier, it was only used by artists so as to produce prints but with time it got developed into a broad range of technologies including semiconductor lithography. Lithography systems are currently used for microfabricating either a major fraction of a planar surface or various parts of a thin film. These systems are beneficial for printing on a wide range of surfaces with optimal image quality at a comparatively lower cost. This has led to the increasing use of lithography systems for the purpose of printing artwork or text on an appropriate material and creating semiconductor patterns or crystals which are further utilised in the form of integrated circuits.

Global Lithography Systems Market Drivers/Constraints:

  • Over the past few years, there have been numerous technological advancements made in the field of lithography systems. This has enabled these systems to be used for different wavelengths ranging from blue wavelengths to high resolution wavelengths of 193 nanometres.
  • Currently, lithography systems are gaining popularity in the semiconductor industry, particularly for establishing the dimensions, location and shapes of several components of the integrated circuit (IC). These circuits are being increasingly used in communication devices, consumer electronics and sensors which in turn, has resulted in an augmenting demand for lithography systems across the globe.
  • Manufacturers have been making huge investments in the research and development activities so as to develop a wide variety of ultra-high-precision semiconductor photolithography tools with a low cost per function. This has, therefore, positively influenced the growth of the market.
  • However, there are technical challenges being faced by producers regarding the development of EUV lithography systems used for making modern micro-circuits. It acts as a hindrance which is impeding the growth of the global lithography systems market.
