LTCC Market and HTCC - Global Market Outlook (2021 - 2028)
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global LTCC Market and HTCC Market is accounted for $2.63 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $3.82 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Low-temperature Co-Fired Ceramics (LTCC) and are made at a temperature below 1,000°C which is achieved by adding in a glassy phase to the ceramic, which lowers its melting point whereas, HTCC is manufactured at a temperature above 1,600°C. They are used in various fields such as aerospace & defence, automotive, telecommunication, industrial, and medical. They have several advantages over the traditional printed circuit boards as due to their nature of chemical inactivity and high thermal stability.
Rising research spending for developing wireless technologies
Rising research spending for developing next-generation wireless technologies and ongoing collaborations among different research institutes are projected to further fuel market growth. For instance, LTCC offers superior performance in advanced automotive sensing, and HTCC technology can be utilized for next-generation automotive components such as the packaging of LED headlights, LD headlights, and DCB circuit substrates.
High cost of raw material
Fluctuations have been witnessed in raw material pricing owing to an imbalance in the demand-supply scenario during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Since the beginning of 2021, production has been affected too owing to an increase in energy and freight costs.
Growing trend of adopting online channels
Growing trend of adopting online channels in daily life has fueled the demand for telecommunication products over the forecast period. Furthermore, growing investments in the aerospace and defense industry are proving to be fruitful for the growth of the market as LTCC substrates are extensively used in various aircraft and fighter jets.
Issues related to reparability
LTCC is an attractive solution for the packaging of microelectronic devices; however, numerous studies are underway to overcome challenges encountered during the production, processing, and application of LTCC. These challenges include chemical issues, which arise due to the interaction of thick films and glass phases in tapes, whereas physical issues arise due to the mismatch of screen-printed paste and tape.
The automotive segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The automotive segment is growing at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. LTCC and HTCC are used in automotive electronics for a safer and enhanced driving experience. The inclination of consumers toward the safety of vehicles, adoption of telematics, and government-defined safety norms are the prominent factors driving the demand for automotive electronics. Key applications of automotive electronics include Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), safety, powertrain, and infotainment. These applications have created a need for microcontrollers, actuators, processors, and sensors, which, in turn, are expected to augment market growth.
The telecommunications segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The telecommunications segment is expected to be the largest share during the forecast period. Radio, microwaves, and millimeter waves are used for wireless communication. The penetration of LTCC technology is rapidly increasing for applications in microwave and millimeter-wave frequency band in areas including Bluetooth module, front end module of mobile phones, and WLAN. Moreover, new opportunities lie ahead as various companies are developing advanced LTCC products, which are projected to benefit these companies to expand their footprint in 5G communication.
