This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global semiconductor photoresist stripping market by application (foundries, memory manufacturers, and IDM (integrated device manufacturers)) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and Europe). The primary vendors in the market are Mattson Technologies and Lam Research.

Overview of the global semiconductor photoresist stripping market

Technavio’s market research analysts have estimated the global semiconductor photoresist stripping market to grow steadily at a CAGR of about 3% by 2020. The growth of automation technology in the automotive industry is considered to be one of the major drivers for the growth of this market during the forecast period. Due to the growing need for automobiles that provide effective guidance and drive control systems, the automobile industry’s demand for semiconductor wafers has increased rapidly in past couple of years. Automation technology requires a large number of chips to be embedded into vehicles for different functions such as car navigation and display, infotainment, collision detection technology, GPS, anti-breaking system, and driving. With the rising demand for vehicles with advanced functionalities, the need for semiconductor wafer fabrication techniques, including photoresist stripper, will increase significantly over the next four years.

This market research analysis has identified the emerging trend of IoT (Internet-of-Things) as one of the major factors that will drive the growth of this market in the coming years. IoT facilitates effective data transfer over a wireless (or wired) network and helps to connect electronic devices to the Internet. The essence of this technology is that it needs minimum human intervention. To bring about automation, IoT would require advanced semiconductor components such as microcontrollers, processors, and chips to be embedded into the devices. Since IoT as a technology requires specialized ICs and microcontrollers that offer maximum performance output with minimum power consumption, the need for photoresist stripping will increase as it helps to augment quality and performance of IC chips.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the semiconductor photoresist stripping market

  • Foundries
  • Memory manufacturers
  • IDM

The semiconductor photoresist stripping market was dominated by the foundries segment, which accounted for almost 63% of the total market share in 2015. This market research study reveals that the foundries segment will continue to dominate this market because of the transition of the market towards fabless models. This recent shift towards fabless models will compel IDMs to increase their order quantity to foundries, which will subsequently increase the demand for photo stripping equipment from this segment to increase production capacity.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the semiconductor photoresist stripping market   

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • Europe

In this market study, analysts have estimated that APAC will dominate the semiconductor photoresist stripping market during the forecast period and will account for almost 72% of the total market share by 2020. The estimated rise in demand from APAC countries and the presence of a number of foundries in the region will fuel market growth in the coming years.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Owing to the highly consolidated nature of the market and the critical requirement for technical expertise, this market is characterized by the presence of a few established vendors. In this market, manufacturers constantly make huge investments in R&D to meet market demands, and the presence of a number of foundries in APAC countries will lead to this market being highly competitive in the APAC region.
