Product Overview

Photoresist chemicals are the light sensitive materials which changes structure on the exposure to UV rays. It used in various industrial processes to form a coating on the surface. It is has high application in electronic industry especially in the manufacturing of semiconductors. Photoresist chemicals are considered to be an important material in the manufacturing of high performance circuit boards and semiconductor chips. Some of the different chemicals used in the photoresist processes are phenol formaldehyde resin, polymethyl methacrylate and polymethyl glutarimide. Photoresist chemicals are available in liquid and dry form. Photoresist chemicals are bifurcated into positive and negative. Technological developments resulting from increasing R&D initiatives is expected to drive the global photoresist chemicals market.

Market Size and Forecast

The global photoresist chemicals market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR around 6.0% during 2018-2027. It is projected to reach around USD 6.0 billion market size by 2027. The increasing demand from various end -use such as sand carving, semiconductors, sensors, circuit boards and integrated circuits is anticipated to increase the demand for the photoresist chemicals during the forecast period.
