The emergence of LTE and 5G and Artificial Intelligence systems is expected to ramp up the production of suitable microchips and processors using EUV lithography systems. Both technologies will have a high impact on the growth of the target market.
Foundry Remains Top Application Area
EUV lithography is primarily implemented by Integrated Device Manufacturers (IDM), foundries, and in the manufacturing fabless and memory integrated circuits/memory chips, and foundries account for nearly half the revenue share of the global market. In 2019, more than 5 in 10 units of EUV lithography devices sold were employed in foundries, and stakeholders in the market are expected to further enhance the technology to suit end user requirements better. For instance, in October 2019, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) announced that its 7nm plus node has become the industry’s first commercially available EUV lithography technology.
Asia Pacific Leading the Way
EUV lithography market in Asia Pacific accounted for nearly three-fourth revenue share of the global market in 2019, and the region is expected to maintain its lead on the regional platform in the coming years. Growing presence of fabless players at a mounting number of foundries in the region is among the primary driving engines for the EUV lithography market in APAC. Furthermore, a mounting number of IDMs are sprouting up in Asia countries, such as Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan is expected to create lucrative environment in the market.
Market Characterized by Monopoly
ASML Holding N.V., a leading manufacturer of chip making equipment and headquartered in the Netherlands, is also the world’s only manufacturer of EUV lithography systems. More than 25% of the company’s revenues are generated by sales of EUV lithography systems, which reflects the company’s monopoly in manufacturing and commercialization of EUV lithography systems. Up from 11 EUV lithography systems shipped in 2017, the company sold 18 systems in the year 2018, to semiconductor and foundry businesses from across the world. To expand its expertise in the EUV lithography technology landscape, the company is focused on augmenting R&D investments.
Foundry remains the largest end use of EUV lithography
Demand among IDMs to increase rapidly in the future
How Growth will Unfold
Asia Pacific continues to hold the largest revenue share in the global market for EUV lithography, and Taiwan is expected to have the edge in the region, in the coming years. TSMC’s expansion in the country and its increasing investments in the EUV lithography technology are among the most important factors instrumental in the growth of the EUV lithography market in Taiwan. The country accounts for nearly 40% revenue share of the market for EUV lithography in APA, while Singapore is expected to witness rapid expansion at the highest CAGR through 2019 and 2029. Apart from Taiwan, the EUV lithography markets in Japan and China are also expected to create profitable opportunities for stakeholders in the coming years.
