Photomask market is broadly divided into two categories on the basis of the base glass material used- Soda-lime and Quartz photomasks. Quartz base glass material photomasks are gaining attraction due to low impurity levels, which offers high optical and thermal characteristics. Shipment of quartz photomasks is forecast to escalate over the next five years, supported by increasing demand from the Flat
