EUV lithography market is estimated for a staggering CAGR of 22% during the forecast period of 2019-2029: FMI

Miniaturization of integrated circuits and microchips, elevated wafer production, and consistent growth of the semiconductors industry are anticipated to propel the adoption of EUV lithography into chip manufacturing across the globe. EUV lithography market is estimated for a staggering CAGR of 22% during the forecast period of 2019-2029.

EUV Lithography Market Key Takeaways

  • Reduction of microchip sizes to incorporate them into shrinking semiconductors is one of the prime factors that resulted in the development of EUV lithography technology.
  • Emergence of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, industrial IoT (IIoT), and autonomous driving has been driving miniaturization of microchips, subsequently creating the need for EUV lithography in chip manufacturing.
  • Constant innovation, R&D, and retrofitting of installed systems to improve wafer production, are anticipated to remain key trends in the EUV lithography market.
  • Integrated device manufacturers (IDM) and foundries are projected to create bulk of the demand for EUV lithography systems, as they are responsible for majority of the microchip and integrated circuit (IC) demand across industries.
  • Acquisition of stakes in key technology-based companies to complement product development is anticipated to remain a prominent trend in the market.

Currently, many IDMs and foundries are cautious in the adoption of EUV lithography in chip manufacturing, given the infancy of the technology and high upfront costs. However, with continuous innovation and R&D, products are expected to become more efficient and cheaper.

Foundry Remains Top Application Area

EUV lithography is primarily implemented by Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDM), foundries, and in the manufacturing fabless and memory integrated circuits/memory chips, and foundries account for nearly half the revenue share of the global market. In 2019, more than 5 in 10 units of EUV lithography devices sold were employed in foundries, and stakeholders in the market are expected to further enhance the technology to suit end user requirements better.

For instance, in October 2019, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) announced that its 7nm plus node has become the industry’s first commercially available EUV lithography technology.

EUV Lithography Market – A Monopoly

The EUV lithography market is led by a single manufacturer. ASML is the sole manufacturer of EUV lithography systems in the world today and holds a monopoly in the market. The company is focused on acquiring stakes in key companies, which provide supporting technology for the manufacturing of EUV lithography systems. It is also engaged in collaborations with solution providers to help in R&D and development of future generations of EUV lithography systems.
