Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Lithography Systems Market size is poised to reach USD 13 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of lithography systems was USD 8 Billion.The growth of the market can be attributed primarily to the rapid expansion of the semiconductor industry and the increasing production of semiconductor chips worldwide. For instance, semiconductor industry sales reached a new record of 1.10 trillion chips in 2021. A total of USD 460 billion was generated by global semiconductor sales in 2020.

The lithography process uses the principle of unmixable between grease and water to produce prints. A wide range of technologies have been developed based on it, including semiconductor lithography, which was formerly used by only artists for the purpose of producing prints. Currently, microfabrication systems are used to fabricate thin films and major fractions of planar surfaces. Consequently, lithography systems have become increasingly used to print artwork or text on a variety of materials and to construct semiconductor patterns or crystals that are then incorporated into integrated circuits. Moreover, the increasing integration of semiconductor chips in hybrid vehicles along with the increased number of semiconductor companies utilizing lithography systems to determine the dimensions, locations, and shapes of their integrated circuits is anticipated to drive global lithography systems market growth over the forecast period. It is estimated that cars contain nearly 3,000 semiconductor chips, while hybrid electric vehicles possess more than 3,500 chips.
