DUBLIN, January 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gbhbs5/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Lithography Systems Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The global lithography systems market to display a healthy growth, reaching revenues worth of USD 8.07 billion by 2019.
Following the growth of the electronic device industry, the demand for semiconductor ICs for different applications, such as communication, consumer electronic devices, memory devices, and sensor devices increases, thereby, driving the need for the lithography systems. Moreover, the growing demand for compact electronic devices and for large panel displays has increased the demand for ArF and KrF lithography systems.
According to the report, the demand for compact electronic devices has grown in almost every sector, be it telecommunication, automotive, industrial manufacturing, or healthcare. This trend has forced semiconductor device manufacturers to invest in R&D in order to reduce the size and increase the performance of ICs, which has led to the emergence of MEMS and 3D chip packaging.
Further, the report states that both lithography system vendors and semiconductor device manufacturers have been facing a stiff challenge with respect to handling the rapid technological changes in the semiconductor industry.
In terms of geographical revenue contribution, the APAC region dominated the lithography system market, accounting for a share of over 71% in 2014, followed by the US, and Europe. Factors such as the solid presence of semiconductor IC manufacturers in APAC is one of the major reasons for the high revenue contribution from this region.
Segmentation by technology and analysis of - ArF Dry, ArF Immersion, KrF, EUV, and i-line
As of 2014, the ArF (ArF Dry and ArF Immersion) segment was the largest revenue generator of the lithography systems market and accounted for a revenue share of over 77%. The main reason behind the market dominance of ArF excimer lithography systems is the miniaturization of semiconductor ICs.
Segmentation by end-user and analysis of - foundry, memory, and IDM
In terms of end-user segment, the foundry segment was the largest revenue contributor to the lithography systems market and accounted for a revenue share of close to 62% as of 2014. The main factor contributing to the market dominance of foundry market is the increasing demand for semiconductor ICs.
This report offers an analysis of each of the following segments and discusses its impact on the overall market growth -
Competitive landscape and key vendors - ASML, Canon, and Nikon
The lithography systems market is densely marked with the presence of prominent vendors captivating the majority share in the market. Moreover, the existence of many prominent semiconductor foundries in Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan have made APAC an extremely competitive geography.
