Next-Generation Lithography Materials Markets, 2031

Dublin, Jan. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Next-Generation Lithography Materials Market - A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Application, Material, and Region - Analysis and Forecast, 2022-2031" report has been added to's offering.

The global next-generation lithography materials market is projected to reach $1,005.3 million by 2031 from $98.4 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 29.46% during the forecast period 2022-2031.

The next-generation lithography materials market is expected to grow at a healthy growth rate, owing to the growing demand for cutting-edge microchips and semiconductors in smartphones and wearable technology. According to International Data Corporation, smartphone shipments increased by 7.7% in 2021 compared to 2020.

Smartphone players are implementing several technologies to reduce the weight and increase the features of smartphones to gain a strong foothold in the industry, creating a demand for next-generation lithography materials and technologies.

In addition, technological advancements, and increased investment in nanotechnology and nanodevices are driving the demand for nanolithography by creating a need for making structures on the nanometre scale, which in turn is complementing next-generation lithography materials' demand.

Furthermore, the U.S. government is making effective investments in nanotechnology through the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), a U.S. government R&D initiative that brings together federal departments and agencies with interests in nanomaterials research, development, and commercialization. Therefore, the aforementioned factors complement the NGL materials market growth.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Next-generation lithography is a process that transfers patterns from a photomask to a photoresist (light-sensitive chemical) on a substrate using light sources with wavelengths less than 193nm. The photoresist is either inherently sensitive to radiation or is formulated with a photosensitive compound that produces a reactive species when exposed to light.

Extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL), which uses a wavelength of 13.5 nm, is currently the most widely used next-generation lithography technique. Other next-generation lithography techniques include electron beam lithography, nanoimprint lithography, focused ion beam lithography, x-ray lithography, and others.

Next-generation lithography technologies are gaining popularity. However, the high cost of next-generation lithography scanners and materials is a major barrier to its widespread adoption in several countries. Currently, Advanced Semiconductor Materials Lithography (ASML) is the only company providing EUV lithography machinery.

However, with additional players entering the ecosystem in the coming years, the next-generation lithography materials industry is expected to expand significantly.


With a greater global emphasis on digital technologies such as 5G networks, artificial intelligence, and IoT, the shift to miniaturization of devices and enhancement of features opens significant sales and financing opportunities. This shift was prominently experienced in regions such as North America, Europe, and some Asian countries.

Asia Pacific and Japan led the next-generation lithography materials market in 2021 and is anticipated to uphold its dominance throughout the forecast period (2022-2031), owing to the presence of significant semiconductor players such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
