Press Release

Transparency Market Research has published a new report titled “Photoresists and Photoresist Ancillaries Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 – 2020.” According to the report, the global photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market was valued at US$ 3.02 Bn in 2013 and is anticipated to reach US$ 4.60 Bn by 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2014 and 2020.

Growth in the global semiconductor industry is anticipated to drive the photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market worldwide. Photoresists are indispensable components in the process of multi-layer wiring configuration in semiconductor manufacturing and high density packaging. Trends in dynamic display technologies are estimated to boost the photoresists and photoresist ancillaries market in the near future. However, environmental and occupational health hazards associated with photoresists and photoresist ancillaries are projected to hamper market growth. Upcoming nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) are likely to offer high opportunities for market players in the next few years.
