Photoresist chemicals by type include wet chemicals, silicon wafers, low-k dielectric, PCB laminates, CMP slurries, specialty gasses, and photoresists. The global market was valued at US$ 3,185.6 Million in 2022 to surpass a valuation of US$ 4,537.2 Million by 2032. Future Market Insights historical analysis witnessed a CAGR of 2.7% from 2016 to 2021. The rising demand for dynamic display technology is presumed to give the market growth some direction.  The global photoresist chemicals market size is projected to create a healthy CAGR of 3.6% from 2022 to 2032.  The growth of the market is attributed to the high demand for semiconductors in the electronics and electrical industry is expected to be beneficial for the overall market development.

Photoresist chemicals are used in the fabrication of these structures, prominently in the microelectronics industry. These are specialty chemicals that change their chemical structure when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, this unique property makes them ideal for photolithography and photoengraving processes which in turn are commonly used in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. Furthermore, there are two basic classifications of photoresists, positive and negative, both work on different principles, but cater to similar needs. However, with increasingly smaller geometry designs in the microelectronics industry, positives are becoming more popular, as they offer process controllability.
