Plastics in Electronics Components: Technologies and Global Markets

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

  • The global market for resins used in electronic components reached 3.4 billion pounds in 2011. It is expected to reach 3.5 billion pounds in 2012 and it will further grow to 4.4 billion pounds by 2017, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7%
  • The thermoplastic segment reached 2.3 billion pounds in 2011. It is expected to reach 2.5 billion pounds in 2012 and it will further grow to 3.1 billion pounds by 2017, a CAGR of 4.9%
  • The thermoset segment is expected to reach nearly 1.1 billion pounds in 2012 and it will further grow to 1.3 billion pounds by 2017, CAGR of 4.3%

REPORT SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

OBJECTIVES

This study focuses on plastics usage in electronic components; however, it is not a review of the electronic industry but deals with development of resins and resin grades to meet requirements of these electronic products used in computers, telecommunications, automotive, and other major industries employing these electronic components.

SCOPE AND FORMAT

This study covers all electronic components where plastics are used to a significant extent in mostly molding electronic components and excludes fiber optics, wire and cable, enclosures, recording media, etc.  This study covers single devices (e.g., connectors, capacitors, switches, bobbins), multiple-component devices (e.g., printed circuit boards, interconnects, etc.) and encapsulants.

In addition, key participants in the electronic components industry in terms of resin producers, and molders are identified along with inclusion of key technologies, and the competitive resin scenario.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Resin consumption in electronic components had been growing at rates well above the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for many years.  Aside from the recent “economic recovery,” there has been continued demand for electronic products, proliferation of new technologies, and “handling” of environmental pressures brought to bear on the industry has resulted in the need, in many instances, for higher performance plastics for many electronic components.  Thus, it is appropriate for a new appraisal of this market at this time.

METHODOLOGY

A comprehensive review was undertaken of literature relating to resins used to produce electronic components, their applications, technology, markets and new developments.  Included in the review were supplier trade literature, texts, and monographs.  Unresolved issues were clarified by contact with those involved in the industry.
