In the manufacturing process of solar cells, a diverse range of chemicals are employed to manipulate the properties of semiconductor materials and ensure the efficiency and reliability of PV devices. One critical application of electronic chemicals in PV is in the fabrication of silicon-based solar cells, which account for a significant portion of the market due to their high efficiency and scalability.

GROWTH DRIVERS AND CHALLENGES

The growing semiconductor industry and rising demand for flat-panel displays contribute to the growing electronic chemicals market size. The expanding semiconductor industry is projected to serve as a powerful catalyst for the expansion of the electronic chemicals market, driving demand for a diverse range of chemical materials and solutions essential for semiconductor manufacturing. As the backbone of modern technology, semiconductors are integral to a vast array of electronic devices, including smartphones, computers, automotive electronics, and IoT devices. The relentless pursuit of innovation in the semiconductor sector, characterized by the constant quest for smaller, faster, and more energy-efficient electronic components, necessitates the use of advanced materials and precise manufacturing techniques. Further, flat-panel displays such as liquid crystal displays, organic light-emitting diode displays, and microLED displays require sophisticated manufacturing processes that rely on electronic chemicals. These chemicals are used for cleaning, patterning, coating, encapsulation, and surface treatment steps to fabricate various layers and components of flat-panel displays. Cleaning agents such as solvents, surfactants, and etchants are used to remove contaminants, particles, and residues from glass substrates and semiconductor layers. However, electronic chemicals have adverse environmental effects. Chemical spills, leaks, and emissions contaminate water bodies, harm aquatic ecosystems, and pose risks to wildlife. Organic pollutants, heavy metals, and volatile organic compounds are a major concern due to the potential for long-term environmental damage. Many electronic chemicals pose health hazards to workers due to their toxic and corrosive nature. Exposure to hazardous chemicals such as acids, solvents, metals, and reactive intermediates can lead to acute or chronic diseases. Many regulatory agencies and organizations impose stringent regulations and safety standards to protect human health. By 2030, the EU Commission has aimed to reduce the use of the 12 most toxic chemicals by 50%. The rising awareness regarding toxicity posed by electronic components can prompt regulatory bodies to take action against manufacturers.
