The global photomask market size was USD 4.7 Bn in 2022 and is likely to reach USD 6.8 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 4.3% during 2023–2031. The market growth is attributed to the rising use of electronic devices, the growing semiconductors requirement, and the high demand for automation technologies in various sectors.

A photomask is a master template designed to replicate the original integrated circuits (ICs) design. The photomask image is made of a binary pattern that consists of a solid and transparent substrate. The photomask image is designed in a way that some part of it is coated opaquely while some part is left transparent for allowing passage of light in an intended pattern.

Global Photomask Market Outlook

This photomask consists of glass or fused silica. The masking replicates or writes patterns precisely matching the original integrated circuit design. A photomask is placed next to the substrate called photo resist, which is a silicon wafer covered with a photosensitive material coating.

As the light transmits through photomasks it reveals the design of the photo resist’s transparent region on the adjacent substrate. The opaque mask coating protects the whole structure of photo resist from being revealed. The advances in photomask have made it possible to significantly enhance modern semiconductor manufacturing processing.

Photomask technology is also applied in other sectors besides the semiconductor sector. It is used in the manufacturing of different consumer products such as computers and peripherals, automobile products, military equipment, and medical & biomedical products. The technology is widely used across worldwide universities for research and development processes and innovation of technologies.
