Hermetic Packaging Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Hermetic Packaging Market by End Use – Aerospace, Defense, Telecommunications, et al for 2020 - 2030


Hermetic seals have been at the cornerstone of the global packaging industry since several decades. Hermetic packaging is especially useful in providing enhanced protection to sensitive materials such as electronic sensors, laser diodes, airbag initiator propellants, and optoelectronic components.

Hermetic seals protect these components against corrosion, humidity, grime/dust and other adverse environmental conditions. As more people and organizations have access to electronics due to rising Industry 4.0 penetration, the scope for hermetic packaging is increasing multifold, creating significant opportunities for market players.

Growing Use in Defense Sector

In a geopolitical landscape of ever-increasing complexity, the importance of common defense can't be overstated. And this extends far beyond weaponry, guidance and navigation tools, countermeasures, armed vehicles and their power sources.

Military & Defense are critical to ensure a country’s security and protection from external aggression. To ensure a robust military system in place, it is imperative that surveillance equipment and weaponry operate efficiently and effectively. For this, they need to be safely packaged and delivered. For this, hermetic packaging is highly suitable.

The use of hermetic packaging in defense sector continues to grow. According to FMI’s analysis, this sector will continue to provide sustained opportunities to market players during the assessment period.

Transponder Glass Packaging Remains Sought-After

Transponder glass packaging is acquiring surging popularity, especially for RFID-enabled transponders. These glass transponders are highly effective in safeguarding these RFID chips against oil or acids, as in automotive manufacturing. These chips are also used in livestock rearing to avail information about meat quality.

At the same time, multilayer ceramic hermetic packaging is gathering momentum, attributed to surging demand for complex electronic circuits such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Ceramic packaging offers better hermetic protection compared to other material.

APAC a Lucrative Market

The Asia Pacific hermetic packaging market is expected to remain lucrative. Demand is expected to be primarily driven by China. This is primarily due to it being an electronics manufacturing hub.

According to China Daily, the East Asian giant recorded the world’s highest volume of consumer electronics from 2014-2015: over 200 million personal computers, nearly 2 billion smartphones and 109 million air-conditioners. Hence, demand for hermetic packaging is rising substantially across this region.

Moderate Deceleration due to COVID-19

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.
