On December 27th, according to foreign media reports, today, Jibang Consulting stated in its "2023 Global Photoresist Market Analysis" report that the sales revenue of the semiconductor photoresist market in 2023 is expected to decrease by 6-9% year-on-year.

The institution stated that with the continuous improvement of downstream customer inventory, the gradual recovery of capacity utilization, and the maturity and surge of applications such as artificial intelligence and intelligent vehicles, the semiconductor industry is expected to experience a recovery in 2024. The semiconductor photoresist market is also expected to rebound, and the market size will return to its historical peak in 2022 and further grow, exceeding $2.8 billion by 2027.

It is reported that advanced semiconductor processes not only rely on lithography machines, but also on photoresists. Photoresist, also known as photoresist, refers to a corrosion-resistant film material that changes its solubility through exposure or radiation from ultraviolet light, electron beams, ion beams, X-rays, etc. It is a key material in photolithography and is mainly used in fine pattern processing operations such as display panels, integrated circuits, and semiconductor discrete devices.

At present, the photoresist market has been dominated by major manufacturers such as Tokyo Ohka Kogyo, DuPont, JSR, Shinetsu Chemical, Sumitomo Chemical, and Dongjin Semichem. Among them, the supply proportion of Japanese manufacturers is about 80%. In the field of advanced photoresists such as EUV, ArFi/ArF, Japanese giants such as JSR, TOK, and Shinetsu Chemical occupy an absolute dominant position.

Previously, on December 14th, Jibang Consulting stated that the global rise in photoresist prices has brought challenges to the semiconductor industry. According to Korean media reports, due to the continuous increase in raw material and labor costs, Dongwoo Fine Chemistry, a subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical in Japan, plans to increase the prices of KrF and L-line photoresists for Korean semiconductor companies. The price increase will vary by product type, ranging from approximately 10% to 20%.
