Photoresist & Photoresist Ancillaries Market worth over $6bn by 2024
Published Date: May 22, 2017 Authors: Kiran Pulidindi, Soumalya Chakraborty
Photoresist And Photoresist Ancillaries Market size is set to surpass USD 6 billion by 2024; as per a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Tremendous advancements witnessed in display technology in the last few years will drive the growth of photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market. Displays have seen a noteworthy change in technology, starting from cathode ray tube (CRT) to liquid crystal display (LCDs) to light emitting diode (LED) in a short span. Also, flat panel display (FPD) technology have revolutionized the electronics industry with almost every electronic device being integrated with it. As FPDs are lighter and thinner than other conventional displays, they are being extensively used in electronics industry in many end use applications such as computers, smart phones, automotive display mediums, televisions, interactive boards, etc. Any advancements in technology in FPD is expected to augment the photoresist and photoresist ancillaries market throughout the forecast timeframe as they are employed in a variety of processes in this industry including spin coating, extrusion coating, roller coating, and advanced slit-coating.
Permissible limits for solvents and chemicals used in photoresist production have been set by The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). For instance, butyl acetate is a solvent used in production of photoresist and its permissible exposure limit (PEL) and recommended exposure limit (REL) have both been set at 200 ppm. Some of the secondary components of the product are radical scavengers, antioxidants, amines, wetting agents, coating aids, and adhesion promoters derived from petroleum-based solvents and synthetic polymers. They can have serious effects on human health as well as the environment and are strictly regulated by the governing bodies. These regulations may prevent the entry of new players and hamper the industries growth in the coming years.
