U.S. hermetic packaging market revenue, by product, 2014 - 2025 (USD Million)

U.S. hermetic packaging market

Utilization of electronics across numerous industries and applications is expected to drive the demand for hermetic packages over the forecast period. Increasing demand for electronic components in development of efficient devices is likely to provide a positive scope for hermetic packaging.

Hermetic packaging has been traditionally used for the protection of MEMS devices from gas or moisture in various industries including defense, healthcare, aerospace, and automobiles. Countries including Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, the U.S., Switzerland, and Canada have invested considerably in order to study the potential applications of MEMS in military & defense sector, which is likely to positively impact the product demand. However, stringent military standards and hermetic packaging testing methods are anticipated to restrain the growth over the next eight years.

Key players in the market are either involved in manufacturing hermetic packages for custom applications & standard products or manufacturing packages as an integrated process for their own electronic components. However, in-house production and assembly of hermetic packages is considered to be beneficial as compared to outsourcing.

Utilization of plastic packaging, also known as non-hermetic packaging, in automotive and telecommunication industry is expected to hamper the hermetic packaging industry growth. Cost efficiency of polymer encapsulation is further expected to restrain the demand for the product over the forecast period.

Product Insights

Ceramic to metal sealing accounted for a revenue share of over 40.0% in 2016. The ability of the product to withstand varied temperature conditions as compared to other products is expected to drive the market growth.

Ceramic to metal sealing display various advantages such as anti-corrosive property, greater mechanical strength, and thermal resistance as compared to other products which is expected to drive the demand over the forecast period. However, ceramic to metal product after welding might be prone to corrosion.

Glass to metal sealing is expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast period. Glass can easily form a bond with metals without any need for welding and soldering. In addition, high compressive strength of glass is likely to drive the utilization of the product in various industries.

Passivation glass is used for the protection of electrical components including diodes, power rectifiers, and integrated circuits from chemical substances, and humidity. These control the electric properties of the component and provides stable operation which is expected drive the demand for the product over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The demand for hermetic packaging from aeronautics & space application accounted for 25.5% of the overall revenue share in 2016. Increasing commercial aircraft production due to growing passenger traffic and affordable air ticket pricing is expected to drive the demand for the product over forecast period.

The healthcare application is expected to witness significant growth of over 6.0% from 2017 to 2025 on account of significant technological advancements in the field of medical implants. However, requirement of hermetic packages which are biocompatible is likely to restrain the manufacturers from utilizing all the elements that are typically used for production of hermetic packaging.
