Hermetic Packaging Market

Hermetic packaging has acquired immense importance across the packaging industry. Over the years, hermetic packaging has been adopted across several important industries, most notably in the electronics sector. The ability to offer enhanced protection from hostile environmental conditions makes them a highly preferred approach by leading electronics manufacturers.

Some applications of hermetic sealing include thermostats, semiconductor electronics, MEMS, switches and optical devices. These electronic parts may be hermetically sealed to prevent damage from water vapor or other forms of moisture and other highly volatile elements. Additionally, surveillance equipment for defense and military also make exhaustive usage of hermetic seals.

Key Takeaways from FMI’s Hermetic Packaging Report

  • Transponder glass hermetic packaging to capture the lion’s share of the market
  • Rising national security concerns to accelerate defense & military equipment demand, leading to proliferation of defense hermetic packaging
  • Ceramic to metal sealing to emerge as the fastest expanding hermetic packaging solution
  • China to emerge as a hotbed for hermetic packaging, attributed to rising demand for consumer electronics

“Deepening penetration of smart technologies is expected to heighten demand for smart devices, prompting vendors to enhance research capacities to launch robust hermetic packaging solutions,” infers the FMI analyst

COVID-19 Impact Insights

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in adverse financial impediments across several industry verticals. With economies of countries witnessing a slump in their GDPs and trade volumes, revenue margins are declining rapidly, inducing major sluggishness.

The hermetic packaging market is among the industries which are affected by the pandemic. However, this slowdown is expected to be moderate as demand for electronic goods such as smartphones and laptops is increasing in the wake of issuance of work from home guidelines.

Also, demand in the defense sector is likely to sustain demand for hermetic packaging, as national security concerns have acquired an even greater priority due to concerns of foreign aggression amongst the world’s major military powers such as the United States, China and India.
