U.S. Electrical & Electronics Adhesive Market

The popularity of medical devices and wearables is increasing at a rapid pace. Increased requirement of adhesives for bonding various assemblies in medical devices is expected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. Acrylic electrical & electronics adhesives have performance characteristics that help lower the total cost of equipment and reduce time-consuming procedures involved in manufacturing electrical & electronics.

Over the past few years, adhesives are replacing various fastening systems in medical sector. Products such as pressure-sensitive, structural, and non-structural adhesives are used in numerous applications. Without any surface preparation, substrates such as plastic, rubber, and metal can be glued with the help of bonding products such as adhesives.

The market is majorly driven by the rising demand for adhesives from printed circuit boards (PCBs). Applications such as wire tracking, potting & encapsulation of components, conformal coatings of circuit boards, and bonding of surface mount components require various types of products such as adhesives for bonding purposes. Increased demand for computers, laptops, smartphones, household appliances, industrial & power equipment, control & navigation systems, and aerospace monitoring & testing equipment requires a massive number of adhesive products. Growing demand for these products is likely to benefit the electrical & electronics adhesives market over the forecast period.

Product Insights

Thermal conductive products segment was valued at USD 1.3 billion in 2018. Heat-related challenges in components can cause failure in electrical & electronic devices. Thermal conductive products in such cases provide heat-conducting paths and resist increasing heat. Silicone, epoxy, and acrylic are some of the common resin types used in the products.

In terms of volume, the electrically conductive product segment is projected to advance at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2019 to 2025. Applications such as surface mount devices and integrated circuits require electrical conductivity to ensure proper functioning. Improved efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the product are projected to contribute to market growth.

UV curing product segment is projected to grow at the fastest pace over the forecast period. High-performance electrical & electronics devices require good insulation properties and thermal conductivity, which is likely to benefit the growth of this segment. Other products in this segment include polyimides, silicone, and cyanoacrylates.

Application Insights

In terms of volume, surface mount devices were the largest application segment and accounted for 43.2% of the market share in 2018. The expansion of electrical & electronics manufacturing sector around the world is a primary key factor contributing to the demand for adhesives. As per the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA), the global production of electronics and IT industry was valued at USD 2,930 billion in 2018.

Global electrical & electronics adhesive market

The product is projected to witness growing demand from fly-back transformers, automotive power trains, and relays. In terms of revenue, potting & encapsulation segment is poised to progress at a lucrative CAGR of 6.9% from 2019 to 2025. Environment-related issues during post-assembly cleaning may break down solder bonds. Exposure to harsh temperature and pressure conditions weakens a solder bond. To overcome such challenges manufacturers have started using environment-friendly adhesives with high bond strength.

Regional Insights

Various suppliers have been focusing on providing cost-effective driver-assistance systems (ADAS) for medium-sized and compact car segments. New car assessment programs in Asia Pacific and Europe have been mandating various systems such as lane departure warning and automatic emergency braking. Asia Pacific emerged as the largest regional market and accounted for 734.1 kilotons, in terms of volume, in 2018.

Increased production of electrical & electronics in India, Japan, and China is likely to benefit the consumption of bonding products such as adhesives. For instance, as per JEITA, the production of electricals & electronics in Japan is expected to observe 1% year on year growth in 2019. In Japan, factors such as workstyle reforms, strong printers, and computers demand and consumption of electrical equipment in vehicles are projected to positively impact the growth of the sector.

In terms of revenue, North America market is anticipated to advance at a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. High requirement to manage precision and protection of electronic components in display and telecommunication devices is a major factor responsible for the demand for electronic adhesives. Increasing demand for electronics in military and aerospace applications is expected to drive the demand for adhesives in this regional market.
