KEY FACTORS SHAPING ELECTRONICS ADHESIVES MARKET
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.

PUR and Silicones Collectively Capture 60% Revenue Share
PUR is ideal for low temperature applications. The properties of this organic material - thixotropy, hardness, and flexibility - can be modified as per requirement. Moreover, its adhesion and mechanical strength can be improved to significantly greater scales. Driven by these umpteen benefits, manufacturers continue to rely on PUR for developing electronics adhesives. While silicone also exhibits similar properties, it is easily contaminated and provides lower adhesive strength versus PUR. Further, this study underscores that, around 6 out of 10 electronics adhesives are manufactured either from PUR or silicone.
Asian Markets Maintain their Supremacy
Manufacturers in the electronics adhesives market would stay glued to Asia, influenced by boost in the production of electrical & electronics in China, Japan, and India. Several distributors in the automotive industry are focusing on offering cost-efficient advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) for compact and medium-sized and vehicles. New car analysis programs in Asia are mandating features such as lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking systems. In addition, governments are offering incentives and subsidies on the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) as a part of their eco-friendly strategy. EVs significantly comprise electrical components as compared to conventional vehicles. Upsurge in the production of EVs would thus offer value-creation prospects to electronics adhesive manufacturers.
Miniaturization Trend On-ramp to Positive Growth Trajectory
Advancements in electronics miniaturization are addressing technology challenges across industries, from new horizons driven by lightweight electronics payloads to healthcare advancements underpinned by tiny implantable solutions. Lightweight and compact electronics pave the way to develop products with optimum form factors. The trend of miniaturization of electronic components is gaining ground in several industries - automotive, aerospace, and consumer electronics. Rising need for devices with smaller footprint is fueling the adoption of highly-integrated PCBs, and thus, electronics adhesives to attach myriads of components on PCBs.
High preference for PUR
Manufacturers to shift away from silicone
Conformal coating remains primary application
