  • The electronics adhesives market will exceed US$ 6 Bn in 2020.
  • The market growth would primarily be driven by the increasing trend of miniaturization of electronic components and circuit boards.   
  • Given the rising demand for consumer electronics and appliances, conformal coatings and surface mounting would be key application areas of electronics adhesives.
  • Benefits such as high elasticity, flexibility, and heat resistance properties are broadening the adoption of silicone electronics adhesives across several end-use industries.
  • Owing to the fast-paced growth of the consumer electronics industry, the adoption of electronics adhesives would remain prominent in mobile and telecommunication devices.
  • East Asia continues to offer investment opportunities, attributed to strong foothold of electronic device and component manufacturers in the region.


Rise of Electronics Miniaturization to Drive Electronics Adhesives Demand

Advancements in the electronics industry has given way to electronics miniaturization to make components small and compact. Miniaturization of electronics and electronic devices has led to an increase in the number of components on a printed circuit board. The growing need for smaller and thinner devices has been driving demand for highly-integrated printed circuit boards (PCB), and the need for electronics adhesives to attach a number of components on PCBs.

With miniaturization of electrical components gaining acceptance in a majority of applications among various industries such as consumer electronics, automotive, aerospace and medical devices, and others, electronics adhesives are becoming a vital part in the industry. The current pace of miniaturization of electronic devices is anticipated to thrust the growth of the electronics adhesives market in the coming years.

Surface Mounting Technology - A Prime Demand Driver

Growing adoption of surface mounting technology to replace welding and soldering is one of the prominent trends in the electronics industry, shaping the demand for electronics adhesives. Surface mounting technology plays an essential role in the development of high speed, automated printed circuit board assemblies.

Nowadays, virtually all mass produced electronic hardware are developed using surface mount technology, which offers many advantages in terms of manufacturability and high performance, and electronics adhesives are a vital component of surface mounting.

Surface mounting uses electronics adhesives to avoid drilling and welding, so as to increase productivity and functionality of devices. With surface mounting technology expected to witness robust growth in the coming years, due to growing mass production of electronics, the electronics adhesives market is anticipated to witness decent growth as well.

Booming Electric Vehicle Demand

The electric vehicle market is witnessing growing demand, owing to mounting concerns regarding global warming and a rapidly shifting dependency on renewable energy sources. Europe and North America are currently leading the electric vehicles market, as both these regions possess well-established infrastructure, high consumer awareness, and government-backed incentives.

Governments of other developing regions such as China are promoting initiatives, like offering subsidies and incentives on the installation or consumption of renewable sources of energy to move towards “Green Energy” for reducing carbon emissions.

Electric vehicles are made of a higher number of electrical components as compared to conventional vehicles, and hence, the growth in electric vehicle demand is expected to present huge growth opportunities for the electronics adhesives market.

However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) has resulted in an economic downturn in China, being the manufacturing hub, it is adversely affecting the worldwide economic order. The pandemic in China is likely to impact the green energy industry, which includes electric vehicles (EVs), renewable heating and cooling, and battery energy storage. China leads the pack, globally, when it comes to renewable investments.

The country is seeing major production standstills due to scarcity of raw materials and staff. These activities will negatively affect EV production in China, and, in turn, hamper the demand growth of the electronics adhesives market space.
