Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: Smaller life cycle of mobile devices will be a key trend for market growth. Technological advances and an increase in global disposable income have brought about a change in the buying pattern of consumers. Electronic devices such as mobile and consumer devices are becoming obsolete fast (within one to one-and-half years) and are being replaced by higher versions or models with better technology launched by OEMs. This has reduced the product replacement cycle for such devices. According to industry experts, as of 2015, 70% of Apple iPhone revenue is contributed by recurring sales, while the remaining 30% is contributed by new users. The replacement sales will rise to 80% in the future. This will result in high demand for semiconductor ICs and increased production capacities of foundries, indirectly triggering the need for mask inspection equipment.”

According to the report, growing requirement of semiconductor inspection systems will be a key driver for market growth. The technical development in the electronics and semiconductor device markets is propelling wafer manufacturers to invest heavily. E-beam inspection equipment involves a high quality of inspection with a resolution of 3 nm. At present, different manufacturing units prefer such equipment mainly...
