Electronic Grade Phosphoric Acid Market

Global Market Study on Electronic Grade Phosphoric Acid: Demand to Surge in the Electronic Components Manufacturing Industry, Chiefly from Semiconductors and VLSI & ULSI Segments

Electronic Grade Phosphoric Acid Market Segmented Phosphoric Acid Electronic Grade, food grade phosphoric acid, Electronic Grade Phosphoric Acid

Market Introduction

High – purity phosphoric acid employed in electronics and microelectronics manufacturing is known as electronic grade phosphoric acid. Electronic grade phosphoric acid is mainly used in the manufacturing of semiconductors, thin film liquid crystal display panels and large scale integrated circuits, such as VLSI and ULSI, among others.

Electronic grade phosphoric acid is prominently used in wafer etching and cleaning applications. The acidic properties of electronic grade phosphoric acid wash off the impurities from the metal surface, making the metal suitable for use in the electronics industry.

In terms of purity, >80% purity and <80% purity electronic grade phosphoric acids are available in the market. Historically, <80% purity electronic grade phosphoric acid was widely used, while >80% high purity electronic grade phosphoric acid is recently being adopted by end-use industries. >80% high purity electronic grade phosphoric acid finds application as an etchant and cleaning agent in the production of electronic wafers, which are further used to manufacture semiconductors.

On the other hand, <80% electronic grade phosphoric acid finds prominent applications in the cleaning of liquid crystal display panels. This grade type registers high consumption, due to the vast production of LCD panels around the world.

Among applications, the semiconductor segment is anticipated to account for a prominent share in the demand for electronic grade phosphoric acid. Mainly employed in cleaning applications and as an etchant, the demand for electronic grade phosphoric acid is further set to surge over the forecast period.

The global market is estimated to be valued at US$ 827 Mn by the end of 2018 and is expected to reach a market value of over US$ 1.7 Bn by 2028 end, expanding at a CAGR of 7.8% over the forecast period. The global market is anticipated to represent an incremental opportunity worth US$ 930 Mn from 2018 to 2028.

Electronic grade phosphoric acid is mainly employed in semiconductor manufacturing. It can also act as a dopant in PV (photovoltaic) production. Further, it finds application in the manufacturing of fuel cells and display panels such as LCD screens for computers, mobile phones and televisions. Electronic grade phosphoric acid is used in the manufacture of high-quality electronic parts & components.
