The photoresist chemicals market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.90% to reach US$5.078 billion by 2024, from US$3.600 billion in 2018. The photoresist is a light-sensitive material that is used in processes such as photolithography and photoengraving to form a pattern on the semiconductor material. They are widely used in microelectronics and microsystems technologies for the fabrication of microfabrication and sub-micron fabrication structures. Miniaturization of electronic products and rising demand for LED displays is boosting the demand for photoresist chemicals. The market is expected to grow at a moderate rate over the forecast period owing to the evolving semiconductor fabrication industry. Geographically, Asia Pacific holds a significant share in the market owing to the evolving electronic industry and manufacturers opening photoresist plants in countries like China, Taiwan and etc. For an instance, in April 2015, Shin-Etsu Chemical spent $108 million to build a plant in Taiwan for photoresists used in semiconductor lithography.
