Extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) is a modern process for fabricating microprocessors, which are hundred times more efficient than the current ones available in the market. This technology allows storage of more information. EUVL replaces other optical lithography techniques, currently used to fabricate microcircuits, which we use in our devices.
Factors that assist the market growth include ability of the EUVL system to offer enhanced resolving power and high productivity. However, EUVL is a complex technology that requires all new step-and-scan systems for production of semiconductors, which restricts the market growth. Reduction in size of transistors and electronic circuits within microprocessors increases the density and power of these systems, expected to provide lucrative opportunity for the market growth.
Based on light source, laser-produced plasmas contributed the largest revenue share in the market in 2015. Owing to their advantages such as short-pulse and high average power laser beam than other sources. However, over the next few years, vacuum spark segment is anticipated to be one of the fastest growing light source in terms of revenue in the global extreme ultraviolet lithography system market.
Memory segment dominated with more than 40% share in EUVL systems market, in 2015. The other optical lithography techniques, which are currently prevalent have several limitations, such as storage space constraint, large size, and low data transmission speed. Advent of EUVL systems have removed these limitations. The new systems feature very high speed and large storage space. The rise in sale of electronic devices and increase in trend of internet of things (IoT), which require large space, are anticipated to create a huge demand in EUVL system market for big storage systems.
