ALBANY, New York, March 07, 2018: The report, titled “Photomask Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2017 – 2026,” has projected the demand to multiply a CAGR of 2.3% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2026, which would primarily be a reflection of growing integration of robotics with smart homes and smart infrastructure. The analysts of the report have estimated that the global photomask market will provide for opportunities worth US$4,249.1 mn by the end of 2026.
The report, compiled by a group of technology experts, is a comprehensive study of how the market for photomask is evolving and where it is headed. Starting off with an overview, wherein valuations of the market have been provided in terms of US$ million with historic data since 2012 and forecasts until 2026. The report segments the market for photomask on the basis of product type, trade type, technology type, and region. For each of these segments, the report includes insights into revenue comparison, market share comparison, and year on year growth.
According to the findings of the report, continuous reduction in the feature size, which now has shrinked even up to 45nm, is the primary factors bolstering the demand for photomasks by the companies operating in the semiconductor industry. With continuous increase in the chip density and recent technological advancements, the semiconductor industry is rigorously evolving the product and the investments in research and development activities is expected to bear fruit in the near future. Integrated circuits are now extensively used for the production of electronic products such as smartphones and other consumer electronic devices. In the near future, the vendors are expected to concentrate on quality control and formulating new design of photomask.

Based on product type, the photomask market has been segmented into masters and reticles. By the end of 2026, the masters segment is projected to provide for a revenue of US$2,600 mn. Typically, master photomasks are consisted of full image of the final wafer, which helps achieve resolution limited within 1um to 2um. On the basis of trade, the market has been bifurcated into captive and merchant. Captive trade is primed to constitute for a revenue of US$2,400 mn by the end of 2026. The analysts have observed that captive mask shops are majorly owned by prominent semiconductor corporations and remains an in-house operations for them. On the basis of technology, the market has been classified into e-beam, laser, and emulsion.
Geographically, the analysts highlight China and South Korea are two countries who are pushing the demand in the region of Asia Pacific except Japan (APEJ). These countries are among the leading manufacturers of electronic products and the demand for semiconductor components, such as ICs, is primarily provided by China. Favorable government policies are also expected to sustain strong demand from APEJ region. That being said, higher adoption rate of new technologies and high concentration of major semiconductor vendors in the U.S. is expected to turn North America as another profitable region over the course of the forecast period.
As far as the competitive landscape of the global photomask market is concerned, the shares are currently distributed among a large pool of players and most of them are competing on the basis of product quality, pricing, reputation, and strength of their distribution network. In the near future, mergers and acquisition activities are expected to unfold to increment shares. Taiwan Mask Corporation, LG Innotek Co., Ltd, Photronics, Inc., SK-Electronics Co., Ltd, Toppan Printing Co., Ltd, HOYA Corporation, Nippon Filcon Co., Ltd, KLA-Tencor Corporation, Lasertec Corporation, and Applied Materials, Inc. are some of the notable companies currently ahead of the curve in the global photomask market.
