Electronic chemicals and materials are solid, liquid, and gaseous substances used in the fabrication of semiconductors and printed circuit boards (PCBs). Global demand for electronic chemicals and materials, particularly in developed countries, is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% through 2017.

The increase in demand for electronic chemicals and materials is related to overall growth in the production of electronic devices, as well as technological innovation that will create opportunities for new materials. New materials such as low-k dielectrics and advanced photoresists will see growth rates well above average, and opportunities will also emerge in existing technologies as chemical compositions are improved to attain better compatibility and lower costs.

In such a dynamic environment there is a need for current, comprehensive reports on electronic chemicals and materials covering aspects of technology, demand trends, project opportunities, and investment levels. This report is an updated version of a report published by BCC Research in January 2011.
The goal of this report is to provide a detailed analysis of recent trends in the chemicals and other materials that go into products manufactured in the global electronics industry. It examines technological developments, future trends, and emerging opportunities for every major segment and subsegment of the global market. This information will be useful for strategic planning, marketing, sales, and research and development.
