Market for Specialist Chemicals and Materials for Electronics Manufacturing Will Pass $50 billion by 2023

September 4, 2012

FARMINGTON, Conn., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — The first two weeks of September 2012 are expected to be among the busiest on record for smartphone and tablet announcements. With Nokia, Motorola, Amazon, and Apple expected to announce new products before the ides – and analysts expecting Apple’s next iPhone to “be the biggest product launch in consumer electronics’ history” – more opportunity exists than ever before for businesses involved in electronics manufacturing.

These new market research reports available from Global Information Inc (GII) offer unique and valuable insight into this rapidly shifting market, providing detailed information that will prove indispensable for CEOs, marketers, product managers, suppliers, service providers, government agencies, investors, analysts and regulators. GII publish new market research reports daily, with a full listing available on their website: www.giiresearch.com

Most-Needed Chemicals for New Disruptive Electronics and Electrics

Whether it is invisible, tightly rollable, biodegradable, edible, employing the memristor logic of the human brain or possessing any other previously-impossible capability in a manufactured device, the future of electronics hinges on new chemicals and materials, many of which do not exist yet. Reducing the risk of new material development is vital, but the information and metrics that can be used to base that assessment on has been heretofore unavailable. This is no longer true.

New material development market research from IDTechEx Ltd gives all the details the electronics manufacturing industry needs to assess the risks associated with developing the new chemicals, materials, and electrics needed for the future.

See how the metals aluminum, copper and silver are widely deployed, sometimes in mildly alloyed, nano, precursor, ink or other form. Understand the 12 basic compounds most widely used in the new electronics and electrics and compare them with compounds exhibiting the broadest range of appropriate electrical and optical functions for the future. Those seeking low volume, premium priced opportunities can learn of other broad opportunities. Indeed, this report covers in detail all the key inorganic and organic compounds and carbon isomers. This report shows how the element silicon has a new and very different place beyond the silicon chip. Learn how the tailoring of a chosen, widely-applicable chemical can permit premium pricing and barriers to entry based on strong new intellectual property. For example, see which of 15 basic formulations are used in the anode or cathode of the re-invented lithium-ion batteries of 131 manufacturers and what comes next.

This report identifies 37 families of new and rapidly-evolving electronic and electric device, spanning nano to very large devices. Most chemical and material companies wish to de-risk their investment by finding common formulations across this new business that has a potential of over $50 billion for them. This will reduce R&D cost and provide escape routes to sell their current formulations elsewhere if they prove unsuccessful in the first application addressed. Indeed, the biggest markets for new and reinvented electrical and electronic devices may get commoditised first or collapse suddenly, leaving the materials suppliers high and dry. Read this report to avoid such a fate.

3D Glass & Silicon Interposers

Business generated by 2.5D interposer substrate will grow rapidly,to an expected total value of $1.6 billion by 2017

After meeting with swift commercial success on a few initial applications, including MEMS, sensors and power amplifiers, 3D integration has been on everyone’s mind for the past five years. However, once the initial euphoria faded, and despite technical developments which assured most observers that mass adoption of 3D was not out of reach, some unanticipated technical and supply chain hurdles were revealed that were higher than anticipated. It was then that 2.5D integration by means of 3D glass or silicon interposers was revealed by experts as a necessary stepping-stone to full 3D integration. GII partner publisher Yole Développement’s first report on 3D interposers and 2.5D integration was in 2010; at that time, they listed the various applications of this technology trend and its drivers, and showed that glass and silicon interposers were expected to become high-volume necessities, rather than just high-performance solutions for a few niche applications.

In this 2012 edition, Yole Développement provides more evidence for a data point they offered over two years ago: after refining the applications and drivers of 3D interposers and 2.5D integration with the use of detailed forecasts, Yole Développement estimates that far from being a stepping-stone technology to full 3D integration, 3D interposers and 2.5D integration is emerging as a mass volume, long-lasting trend in the semiconductor industry.

Global Markets for Conformal Coatings in Electronics

Conformal coatings are materials applied to electronic circuitry to act as protection against moisture, dust, chemicals, and temperature extremes. The global market for conformal coating materials is expected to grow from $7.9 billion in 2011 to $8.5 billion in 2012, and $9 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 1% between 2012 and 2017.

The market for just conformal coating equipment and spares should grow from nearly $6.3 billion in 2011 to $6.7 billion in 2012. This market is expected to decrease back down to $6.4 billion by 2017, a CAGR of -1.2% between 2012 and 2017. This market was worth nearly $1.7 billion in 2011. This figure should grow to $1.8 billion in 2012 and $2.6 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 7.8% over the next five years.
