Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “World Photoresist Chemicals Market – Opportunities and Forecast, 2014 – 2022” report to their offering.

Photoresist chemicals are the light-sensitive materials used in various industrial processes. It changes its chemicals structure when exposed to UV light and commonly used in photolithography and photoengraving to form a regular coating on a surface and also essential for semiconductor manufacturing process.

Photoresists are categorized into two groups, positive and negative photoresist. Photoresists are available in dry film and liquid form. Chemicals which are used in photoresist are polymethyl methacrylate, polymethyl glutarimide, and phenol formaldehyde resin. Photoresist chemicals are used in semiconductors, alkali cleanser for electronic devices, and as silicon etching agent for micro-electro-mechanical system. These chemicals are used due to their unusual characteristics such as, high purity, applicability to micro-processing, and sharp patterning and etching on substrate.

The growth of photoresist chemical market is primarily attributed by the growing trend of electronics & semiconductor industry coupled with rising demand of dynamic display technology. However, the environmental and occupational health risks associated with photoresists chemical hinders its market growth.

Global photoresist chemical market is segmented on the basis of its type, application, and geography. Types of photoresist chemicals consist of positive and negative photoresists. Applications of photoresist chemicals includes microelectronics, sand carving, fabrication of printed circuit boards, and semiconductor.

Key players in global photoresist chemical market includes Mitsui Chemicals, DuPont, Electra Polymers Ltd., DOW Chemicals, AZ Electronic Materials, Eternal Chemicals, and RD Chemical Company.
