Many electronic assemblies, especially those in automotive and marine industries use potting compound which act as a protective coating. This video looks at non-re workable compounds which are especially difficult to remove…. a property of many (all?) epoxies is the glass transition temperature which can be exploited. Also looks at the need for a fume hood and respirators with organic vapor cartridges!
IoT, Auto Electronics Promoting FPCB Industry Development
Flexible Printed Circuit Boards Market report, published by Allied Survey, conjectures that the world-wide market is anticipated to get 27 billion by the year 2022, rising at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2016 – 2022.
Asia-Pacific dominated the global market, as to revenue, accounting for greater than 46Percent in 2015, and then North America.
FPCBs are used widely across applications that include LCD display, mobile display screen, connectivity antennas, and flexible circuitry used in re-chargeable batteries. Growth in need for consumer electronic wares, boost in popularity of Internet of Things (IoT), and adoption of FPCBs in motor vehicle applications motivate the market enlargement. More so, surge in need for programmed bots is thought to allow for highly profitable chances to market players. Multilayer FPCBs led the FPCBs market, and is supposed to retain this trend through the entire forecast period of time. Nevertheless, the rigid-flex FPCBs segment is predicted to witness considerable boost in the possible future, owing to the small size and low power use.
Among end user, electronic products overpowered the global market in 2015, accounting for about 30% share. Even so, automobile electronics is predicted to expand at the maximum CAGR of 10.7%, due to surge in need for long lasting units with boosted efficiency.
Asia-Pacific was the primary revenue contributor in 2015, and is supposed to keep up its prominence in the future, on account of surge in number of electronic applications. Furthermore, movements in electronic products and industrial systems are anticipated to elevate the FPCBs market growth, particularly in the Parts of Asia, for instance China, Japan, Oceania, and also India.
Flex PCBs are greatly successful interconnectivity solutions for an array of electronic products with complicated circuits. Furthermore, they furnish a great number of edges that include high efficiency and decreased system repairs and maintenance. Multilayer FPCBs represent nearly 30% of the total FPCBs market, on account of their resilience and high efficiency. Plus, sizeable need for electronics applications and buyer shift towards compact printing to accomplish better efficiency are anticipated to fuel its consumption in the electronic products, motor vehicle, together with other market sectors, states Jeshin Jayamon, Research Expert, Semiconductor & Electronics Research, Allied Survey.
LAMEA is believed to increase at the maximum CAGR throughout the analysis period of time, on account of surge in portable appliances and rise in the consumption of FPCBs in motor vehicle applications. Furthermore, technological breakthroughs to defeat power loss problems in extreme situations are anticipated to give lucrative possibilities for market competitors before long.
