Excimer Laser Market: Industry Analysis and Detailed Profiles of Top Industry Players


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/30/2018 -- An excimer laser, also known as exciplex laser, is one of the form of ultraviolet laser which is has major applications in the production of microelectronic equipment and devices, eye surgery, semiconductor based integrated chips or circuits and micromachining. An excimer laser primarily consists of reactive gas, for instance chlorine or fluorine along with noble gas, for example, krypton, argon, xenon. The excimer laser market has been segmented into by emission wavelength which includes less than 200 nm, 200 nm – 300 nm and more than 300 nm. The market has been segmented into by end use industry which includes industrial equipment, aerospace and military, automotive, healthcare among others. The excimer laser market by region has been segmented into, Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, South America and MEA (Middle East and Africa).

The major industrial end use of excimer lasers has been in microelectronic equipment and devices along ultraviolet photolithography. Moreover, excimer lasers have high-power ultraviolet output which is making it useful for surgery, which is one of the driving factors which fuel the application of excimer lasers in medical devices.

With the growing technological advancement and research activities in the field of excimer lasers, the advanced and upgraded excimer lasers are having a positive impact on the market. Advanced excimer lasers primarily offers combination of short pulse duration and high pulse energy in the UV wavelengths. These prime attributes combine to offer a unique photonics tool primarily for the commercialization of novel end uses which include LTPS (low temperature poly-Si) annealing in FPD (flat panel display), pulsed laser deposition in thin-film manufacturing, direct patterning in advanced packaging markets and surface hardening in automotive sector. The lifetime of an excimer laser is limited by gas contamination, dust created by the electric discharge, corrosion processes, apart from problems with the high-voltage electronics. These challenges may inhibit the application of excimer laser in different end use industries which is considered as one of the restraining factor for the market. Cyclical nature of semiconductor industry may be considered as one of the challenging factor which may inhibit the growth of the excimer laser market. However, application of excimer laser for different end use industries which include manufacturing, construction and power generation is one of the prime opportunities for the market.
