Integrated Circuits (IC)

IC Market

Since its invention in the middle of the 20th century, the semiconductor has enabled product innovation and economic development as ever-shrinking transistors moved from the lab into common devices we all use every day. During that history, photomasks have been used to manufacture nearly every semiconductor that has ever been made. These essential components are the bridge from product design to manufacturing, carrying the design data into the cleanroom for efficient, high-volume manufacturing of circuits.

Today, the market for IC photomasks alone is approaching $4 billion annually. Within this market, Photronics has established itself as a leader in the merchant portion of the market, widely recognized as a trusted source of masks, offering a global footprint for local manufacturing, outstanding customer service and leading technology. No matter what your photomasks needs, we’re ready to help you advance in your business and product development.
