A photomask is a quartz or glass substrate, coated with an opaque film made by exposing, or writing, the designer’s pattern onto a resistant coated chrome mask blank to be used in a wide range of applications. Photomask plays a critical role in the microlithography process used for the manufacture of integrated circuits (ICs), photonic devices, and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Globally, increasing demand of the semiconductors and increasing chip density are expected to play an important role in the growth of photomask in the near future and also expected to remain the key growth drivers during the period of study. Increasing focus of industry players on Internet of Things (IoT) in the current time poses a huge opportunity for photomask industry in the near future.
Geographically, Asia-Pacific dominated the photomask market driven by higher demand and consumption of photomasks in semiconductor industy. Asia-Pacific was followed by North America and Europe as second and third largest market for photomask market. Asia Pacific is projected to have the fastest growth, owing to rapidly expanding end-use industrial base and growing number of manufacturing units in developing nations such as China and India in this region.
