Global photomask market is expected to grow from US$ 3,320.0 million in 2015 to US$ 4,949.1 million by 2025 at a CAGR of 4.6% between 2017 and 2025.
Owing to the rapid rise in semiconductor and IC devices along with flat panel display devices, the demand for photomask which is used to imprint the circuit schematics onto the circuit board or display boards, is also set to increase. Ongoing miniaturization of circuit boards has led to its manufacturing by layers. Each board layers have a unique pattern which are etched onto a photomask. Thus, with the ever-increasing layers in a semiconductor wafer, the demand for newer set of photomasks is also set to increase. Additionally, with newer display technologies such as the switch from LCD to LED or AMOLED screens is also going to create a strong demand of photomask from the flat panel display manufacturers. Asia Pacific, being the hub for semiconductor fabrication, along with high number of small and large semiconductor plants, has witnessed highest adoptions of photomask by various organizations. North America is the second largest adopter of photomask solutions, while Europe region with growing numbers of various organizations and increasing technological trends lags behind the above two regions.
