“Solvents accounted for the largest share in type segment of semiconductor chemical market in terms of value & volume.”
Solvents dominate the market for semiconductor chemicals, mainly because of their important function in several crucial processes involved in semiconductor fabrication. By removing impurities and particles that can jeopardize the integrity of the finished product, these chemicals are vital for assuring the cleanliness and purity of semiconductor components. For this task, solvents, particularly high purity solvents, are essential because even minute impurities can cause flaws. In addition, they are crucial to photolithography procedures, where they aid in the dissolution and removal of photoresists that define the complex circuit designs on semiconductor wafers. Precision in the manufacture of semiconductors depends on their capacity to remove certain materials in a selective manner. Solvents are also important in chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) procedures, which are necessary for planarizing the semiconductor surface and ensuring that various layers adhere properly, thereby reducing defects and enhancing overall chip performance.

“Photoresist accounted for the largest share in application segment of semiconductor chemical market in terms of value & volume.”
Photoresists have the biggest market share in the semiconductor chemicals industry due to their critical function in photolithography operations that create and pattern complicated circuits on semiconductor wafers.
