What is Mask Aligner Market?
Mask Aligner is a device which is used in photolithography process. The machine is mainly used for the production of integrated circuits. The process involved holding photomask over silicon wafer over which an ultra violet light is thrown through the mask. There are multiple types of mask aligners present in the market currently which are automatic, semi-automatic and manual. Growth of semiconductor and high demand for nano fabrication has resulted in growth of this market. Even though competition from Stepper Machine market is present. The market is still expected to growth fuelled by boom of semiconductor market. Geographically, Asia Pacific is the biggest market which is also home to Japan, China and India leading manufacturers, followed by North America region.
The market study is being classified by Type (Automated, Semi-Automated and Manual), by Application (Solar Equipment's Manufacturing Industry, Electronics Industry and Others) and major geographies with country level break-up.
