Electrically Conductive Adhesives Market by Type, Chemistry (Epoxy, Silicone, Acrylic, Polyurethane), Application (Automotive, Aerospace, Consumer Electronics, Biosciences), Filler Material - Global Forecast to 2021
“Growing use of electronic components across various applications drives the electrically conductive adhesives market” The global electrically conductive adhesives market is projected to reach USD 2.53 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 8.48%. In this technologically advanced era, various industries such as automotive, biosciences, aerospace are increasingly making use of electronic gadgets for advancements and precisions in their products. This increase in use drives the growth of this market. Whereas, high raw material costs and the volatile nature of the feedstock hampers the market growth. Moreover, stringent regulations related to volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions also prove a restraint for this market.
“Biosciences: The fastest growing application segment in the electrically conductive adhesives market” The bioscience application is the fastest growing segment of the global electrically conductive adhesives market. The high growth is attributed to the use of ECAs for numerous applications such as, displays and touchscreens, medical monitors, medical MRI & X-ray scanners, and hearing aids, among others. As ECAs have the flexibility and fast curing properties along with high strength in bonding, these are being increasingly used in the bioscience industry.
“Acrylic based adhesives to experience maximum growth” Acrylic based electrically conductive adhesives have good chemical, UV (ultra-violet) and shear resistance. They also have a wide temperature range from -40˚ F to 300˚F, and a shelf life of about two years. These adhesives are used in various applications such as, electrical bonding and EMI (electromagnetic) shielding. Due to their excellent adhesion and fast curing nature, acrylic based electrically conductive adhesives are expected to experience the highest growth during the forecast period.
“Emerging economies are driving the growth of the global electrically conductive adhesives market” The Asia-Pacifc region has emerged as a lucrative market for smartphones, which make use of electrically conductive adhesives. China is the largest manufacturer of automotives in the Asia-Pacific region, which has further increased the growth of ECAs in this region. In the rest of the world region, the demand for mobile handsets and computing devices is expected to increase in Saudi Arabia leading to the demand for ECAs in the consumer electronics application.
