Global photolithography equipment market is expected to reach USD28,973.50 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 10.75% owing to the rapid technological advancements and increasing demand from the semiconductor industry. The increasing adoption of digital transformation across sectors, rising demand for smart appliances, burgeoning advancements in automotive and innovations across the semiconductor industry is providing impetus to photolithography equipment growth across the globe. With the onset of advances in semiconductor manufacturing technologies, the companies are focusing on increasing precision and production capacity while decreasing overall manufacturing and overhead costs for semiconductor manufacturers. One such innovation is led by ASML, a Netherlands based photolithography equipment manufacturer which launched EUV photolithography equipment and revolutionized the way chips are manufactured. It has an ability to manufacture the chips at smaller scales which are cost-efficient, powerful, and faster than their counterparts.

The global photolithography equipment market can be segmented based on the type, wavelength, device wavelength, end-use, application, region and company. Based on type, the market can be segmented into EUV and DUV (ArFi, KrF, ArF and I-Line). EUV segment is anticipated to exhibit the fastest growth in the market, owing to its increasing demand from the semiconductor industry as EUV chips are the most preferred due to their precision.

Based on wavelength, photolithography equipment can be divided into 1nm-170nm, 170nm-270nm, and 270nm-370nm. The 1nm–170nm segment of the global photolithography equipment market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This wavelength is used to produce negative AND (NAND) logic gates and dynamic random-access memory (DRAM). It allows semiconductor manufacturers to produce memory chips at low costs. Among different types of photolithography equipment used, EUV majorly uses this wavelength to manufacture semiconductor devices.

Based on device wavelength, the global photolithography equipment market has been classified into laser-produced plasmas, mercury lamps and excimer lasers. The burgeoning EUV photolithography equipment sales is driving the demand for laser-produced plasma light sources as they offer highly improved wavelengths of up to 1 nm.

ASML Holding NV, Canon, Inc., Nikon Corp., EV Group, Global Foundries, Inc., and Eulitha AG are some of the leading players operating in the global photolithography equipment market. The global photolithography equipment market is consolidated with ASML taking a center stage, contributing to the highest share of 76.07% in the market with its major customers being Samsung, Intel, and TSMC. ASML has been the key market player for the past 10 years and is expected to lead the market in the future as well on account of its high reliability and importer satisfaction. ASML holds monopoly in EUV segment, marking 100% share. Owing to complete monopoly and increasing innovations such as production capacity enhancement (20% increase) and precision enhancement (30% more precise models in 2020) in EUV machines by ASML, the company has increased prices for EUV machines significantly, which are also augmented by US China trade face-off. It led to cancelling several orders from ASML to China, hence the losses incurred were offset by increasing the prices of machines sold in other countries.

As the U.S. has put EUV machines on US trade control list, China has started its own R&D for these machines, but it is unlikely that these machines will be out there in the market in next 4-5 years. For the first half of 2021, ASML sold 16 EUV machines across the globe, with the price point of USD180 million per machine.
