For instance, in 2021, TV sales, smartphone sales, and computer sales totaled USD 850 billion. The technique of extreme ultraviolet lithography employs short light wavelengths to print intricate patterns on integrated circuits in order to fabricate semiconductors. Furthermore, a substantial investment in research and development for the advancement of EUV technology along with the rising demand for the growing demand for micro technologies, such as microprocessors and integrated chips (ICs), is also anticipated to fuel segment growth in the global lithography systems market.
Our in-depth analysis of the global lithography systems market includes the following segments:
By End User
In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
