Emerging printing fills the gap for rising electronics applications
“Our world is going digital. And this revolution will clearly impacts the printing technologies” says Gaël Giusti, PhD. Technology & Market Analyst, Semiconductor Manufacturing at Yole Développement (Yole), “Emerging printing technologies are benefiting most from this move. They are now on the verge of replacing some conventional manufacturing techniques in the electronics, microelectronics and display industries”.
Indeed, these emerging technologies enable new processing capabilities where conventional techniques face limitations, in conformality, uniformity or selectivity. According to Yole’s analysts, the emerging printing equipment market is expected to grow at a 5.8% CAGR for the next five years, to reach US$781 million in 2024. In this dynamic context, the market research and strategy consulting company launches a new dedicated Technology & Market report to give an overview of the emerging printing industry: Emerging Printing Technologies. In this way, they deliver a complete vision of the printing industry with a dedicate collection of reports including: Inkjet Printheads: Dispensing Technologies & Market Landscape , Nano-Imprint Technology Trends for Semiconductor Applications, and Inkjet Functional and Additive Manufacturing for Electronics. Thanks to their expertise, they provide a comprehensive and detailed analysis to the industry.
Thus, what are these emerging printing technologies? Inkjet, spray and laser transfer, to name but a few, are driving new momentum in the manufacturing industry. According to Jérôme Mouly, Senior Technology & Market Analyst & Business Developer, Microtechnologies at Yole: The display market is one area where inkjet printing has solved key issues, bringing process flexibility while drastically decreasing end-product cost. Similarly, aerosol technologies are meeting the challenges of 3D shaped surfaces for shielding or in-mold electronics, where screen-printing faces limitations. Furthermore, future 5G wireless applications bring many challenges, with higher operating frequencies and shrinking systems.
In fact, emerging printing techniques add value most at the technical specification level and by simplifying the supply chain. Some specific market segments require low-volume customized solutions, like the aerospace or defense markets, where flexible tools and in-house development for confidential aspects are requested… More info.
