The prevalent lithographic technology uptake in semiconductor manufacturing is expected to stimulate market growth. Moreover, the escalating demand for consumer devices is impelling manufacturers’ inclination toward miniaturization to encourage the adoption of portable devices, thereby propelling lithographic technology deployment. Meanwhile, consistent focus of market players on R&D programs to improve the efficacy of photoacid generators are set to bolster product adoption in the semiconductor industry. Additionally, technological advancements in electronics and the growing popularity of wearable electronic devices are promoting the use of PAG in the consumer electronics sector, which is slated to fuel semiconductor photoacid generators market growth.
 

High prices of manufacturing may restrain industry progression

The high cost of manufacturing is a major factor restraining market growth. In chemically amplified resists, if the photoacid generator and quencher quantities decreases, the standard deviation of their distributions rises, resulting in increased rates of EUV scanners and other solutions. Nonetheless, the surging penetration of electric vehicles across the globe is providing massive growth opportunities for market outreach, thus encouraging photoacid generator manufacturers to overcome this issue.
