Market Synopsis


The Global Photolithography Market size was valued at USD 7.34 Billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 9.80 Billion by the end of the forecast period with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.26%.


Photolithography refers to the process of transferring geometric patterns on a substrate using optical radiations. It is also referred to as optical lithography or ultraviolet (UV) lithography. The major steps involved in photolithography involves wafer cleaning, barrier layer formation, photoresist application, soft baking, mask alignment, exposure and development, and hard-baking. This process is highly complex and requires an extremely clean substrate surface for etching patterns and ideal temperature conditions. Some of the applications of photolithography include integrated circuits (ICs), printed electronic boards, nameplates, and printer plate among others. In recent times, photolithography is being used to produce nanites as well as microscopic computer systems. The increasing demand for consumer devices has attributed to the growth of the global photolithography market. In addition to this, manufacturers’ inclination toward miniaturization to promote the adoption of portable devices has created several opportunities in the global photolithography market. However, the complex manufacturing process along with the continuously changing semiconductor industry might act as a restraining factor to the growth of the global photolithography market.


Key Developments



  • In August 2019, EV Group (EVG) partnered with SCHOTT to demonstrate the readiness of 300mm (12 inch) nanoimprint lithography (NIL) for high-volume patterning of high-refractive-index (HRI) glass wafers used in the manufacturing of waveguides/light guides for next-generation augmented/mixed reality (AR/MR) headsets. The partnership will combine EVG’s proprietary SmartNIL process and SCHOTT RealView high-refractive-index glass wafers, and the manufacturing will be carried out within EVG’s NILPhotonics Competence Center at the company’s headquarters in Austria.



  • In February 2019, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) ordered 18 EUV lithography machines from ASML to accelerate its production of the 7nm process node.



  • In October 2018, Samsung Electronics commenced wafer production of its 7nm LPP (low power plus) node, 7LPP, using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology. The commercialization of the 7LPP process node has encouraged customers to develop a complete set of products that would support applications in 5G, Artificial Intelligence (AI), enterprise and hyperscale datacenter, the Internet of Things (IoT), automotive, and networking.



  • In June 2016, ASML Holding NV acquired Hermes Microvision, Inc. (HMI), one of the suppliers of pattern verification systems used for advanced semiconductor devices. through this acquisition, HMI enhanced ASML’s holistic lithographic portfolio of lithography exposure systems, computational lithography, and metrology.
