Expanding electronic industry is encouraging the growth of the global electronics adhesives market, especially in APEJ

The electronics industry is a broad economic sector, which covers advanced technologies in the productive, industrial and consumer goods market. The electronics and electrical industry is a flourishing and diversified sector, which is growing at a rapid pace owing to inventions in novel technologies coupled with customers inclining towards electronic devices and services. The electrical and electronics industry is experiencing remarkable changes due to continuous research and development investments, which has led to augmented production capacity as well as higher value added products. In Asia, the electronics industry accounts for around 20%-50% of the overall exports from most of the countries. Most of the superior quality consumer electronics such as TV, mobile phones, radios and computers come from the ASEAN countries. Moreover, over 80% of the world’s hard drives are also developed in the ASEAN region. Additionally, Thailand is one of the largest electronic devices assembly bases in Asia with over 2,300 companies powered by a 400,000 labour force. It is a world leader in manufacturing hard drives, semiconductors and integrated circuits. Thailand is also ASEAN’s prominent electrical appliances production base. This thriving market for the electronics industry is boosting the growth of the global electronics adhesives market.

Growing investment in the electronics industry in the APEJ region boosting electronics adhesives market revenue growth

The ASEAN region has greatly benefited the electronics industry by integrating production networks, which foster enhanced trade with larger Asian economies such as China. However, China plays an essential role in the Asian electronics industry, not as a competitor but as a growing market. China is a product assembly base and imports various components and parts from several Asian countries and exports it worldwide. In January 2016, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in partnership with an industry group and Ping An Bank planned to set up a US$ 30 Bn fund for the electronics industry in China. The creation of this fund will help address the issues faced by small and medium electronics manufacturers who have folded recently, expand the country’s technology capabilities and support the country’s significant electronics supply chain.

Cyclic production of electronics parts may hamper the growth of the electronics adhesives market

The electronics industry is one of the most dynamic sectors of the economy. The rapid surge in the growth of the electronics industry has impelled dramatic changes in electronic parts manufacturing. Consequently, systems, components, and devices get obsolete at a faster rate in the rapidly changing technology market. Various electronic parts that compose a product have a life cycle that is significantly shorter than the life cycle of the product owing to various economical as well as technological reasons. The part becomes obsolete when it is no longer manufactured either due to drop in the demand to low enough levels that it is not practical for manufacturers to continue with the part; or because of unavailability of material or technology to produce it. However, unless the new system being designed has a short life, or the product is the driving force behind the part’s market, there is a high probability of a life cycle mismatch between the parts and the product. Additionally, most of the electronic parts pass through several life cycle stages corresponding to changes in parts sales. This life cycle mismatch issue requires that during design, engineers be familiar with which parts will be available and which parts may be withdrawn from the market.
