EUV Lithography Market 2021| Current and Future Demand, Analysis, Growth and Forecast By 2029

The coronavirus pandemic has a substantial impact on the global economy, and key industry verticals such as consumer electronics. Consequently, the EUV lithography market is likely to be adversely impacted in the short term. On the other hand, the EUV lithography facilities are highly sanitized, and workers are provided with substantial protections from external agents including pathogens, which will help in minimizing operational disruptions in the market.

“As semiconductor designs are constantly shrinking, the use of EUV lithography facilities have become very critical, as it allows intricate patterns on semiconductor wafers required in next-generation AI, 5G, and automotive applications, which will aid growth for the foreseeable future,” says the FMI analyst.

The Projected Impact of Coronavirus

The coronavirus pandemic has had an adverse impact on the semiconductor industry, and consequently the EUV lithography market. The slump in electronic product manufacturing activities will continue through 2020, with lockdown restrictions in place. However, the extremely high sanitation standards in EUV lithography facilities, reduces risk of the contagion for workers in the industry, which will help to sustain operations throughout the crisis period.

Competition Landscape

The EUV lithography market comprises players including but not limited to ASML, TSMC, Nikon, Samsung Electronics, Intel Corp., and NTT Advanced Technology. ASML is the leading player of EUV lithographic equipment manufacturing, which even provides supplies to other players in the market. Market players are investing in research initiatives to aid EUV applications in the chipmaking process.

For instance, TOK Advanced Materials has invested in the photoresist development for EUV lithography in Korea. IBM has set up a research initiative involving EUV lithography and its role in chip dimension reduction. Imec has collaborated with ASML to research in printing narrow pitch lines with single exposure EUV lithography.
