Photomasks are essential tools used in the manufacturing of semiconductors, optical devices, Flat Panel Displays (FPD), and other products. FPD (Flat Panel Display) Photomask is the procedure of using lithography techniques for transforming display patterns and circuits onto electronic device displays for instance LCDs (Liquid Crystal Displays) and OLEDs (Organic LED). The FPD photomask tools are used in various sizes of devices including PCs, televisions, and smart phones.
According to study, “Global FPD Photomask Market to reach USD XXX million by 2026” the key companies operating in the global FPD photomask market are Hoya Corporation, Toppan Photomasks, Dai Nippon Printing, Shenzhen Qingyi Photomask, SK Electronics, LG Innotek, Photronics(PKL), Shenzhen Newway Photomask and Taiwan Mask Corporation. The key players are capturing market share through capitalizing on the increasing demand for huge size photomask. System on Chip (SOC) is an IC that acts as a central processor in complex devices and is also being used mainly in smart gadgets and smart electronic devices. Hence, rising demand for these devices is leading towards augmented application for SOC, thus resulting in the need for special photo masking equipment as well as photomask inspection equipment. Meanwhile, there has been growth in adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) in various industries, therefore the demand for semiconductor is also rising and this is expected to drive the growth of the global FPD photomask market.
Based on product type, FPD photomask market is segmented as soda lime base photomask, quartz base photomask and film photomask. Based on trade type, market is segmented as merchant and captive. Captive mask trade/shops are owned by biggest semiconductor corporations that are part of in-house operations. Based on technology, market is segmented as laser technology, e-beam technology and emulsion technology. In addition, based on application, market is segmented as Organic LED (OLED), Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD), and Plasma display panel (PDP) and others.
The FPD photomask market is driven by increase in adoption of consumer electronic products, followed by rise in demand for semiconductors and surge in utilization of automated systems. However, high cost associated with photomask manufacturing and complexity in FPD photomask fabrication may impact the market. Moreover, growth in adoption of photomask in automated systems for manufacturing of semiconductors and increase in focus towards advancements in technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) are key opportunities for market.
Based on geography, the Asian-pacific is the leading region in global FPD photomask market owing to growth in development of chips with high circuit density and rise in adoption of consumer electronics such as Smartphone in the region. Whereas, the European and North-American regions are expected to witness higher growth rate due to growth of the manufacturing sector using semiconductor devices over the forecast period. In upcoming years, it is expected that future of the global market will be optimistic as a result of rise in demand for high density chip coupled with increase in companies’ usage of operational amplifiers in flat panel display during the forecast period.
