According to a new report published by Allied Market Research titled,"Potting Compound Market by Resin Type, Curing Techniques, Application, and End Users: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018 - 2025,"the potting compound market accounted for revenue of $2,904.2 million in 2017 and is anticipated to generate revenue of $3,836.5 million by 2025. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2018 to 2025.
The global potting compound market is expected to be heading toward expansion phase during the forecast period. This is due to shift in trends in the electrical and electronics industry and consistent rise in the electronic production.
Factors such as rise in single residence families and increase in urbanization boost the electronic production. Furthermore, rise in disposable income of the middle-class population leads to purchase of advanced electronics products, thereby fueling the growth of this industry. It altogether has created the need to produce more electronics products and parallel need for the protection of these devices. Potting compounds are significantly used in the assembly of these products to ensure safety by driving its adoption.
Since the overall application scope of potting compounds is covered in electronics and electrical applications, shift in trends and technological impact on the electronics and electrical industry are expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the potting compound market during the forecast period.
Microelectronics is one of the trends observed in the electronics industry that is driven by consumer preference for smaller as well as portable devices from mobile phones and LCD to air conditioners. Potting compounds are significantly used in the assembly of these products to ensure optimum safety. Some of the potting resins are application specific, hence, improper selection of resin can damage the overall electric assembly and component as well. This factor is expected to hamper the potting compound market growth over the assessment period.
As the potting compound is completely used in the electronics and electrical application, the report studies detailed applications in the electronics and electrical sector. Electronics applications studied in the report include capacitors, transformers, cable joints, industrial magnets, solenoids, and others. Moreover, electrical applications considered in the study include surface mount packages, beam bonded components, memory devices & microprocessors, and others.
Based on the resin type, it is segmented into epoxy, polyurethane, silicone, polyamide, polyester, polyolefin, and acrylics. The demand for silicones is high as compared to the other resin type on account of its compatibility to work in high as well as low-temperature range.
Asia-Pacific is one of the prominent region that propels the growth of the market. Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2017 both in terms of value and volume due to the presence of established electronics & electrical industries along with rapidly growing consumer electronics sale. North America is expected to exhibit the highest growth during the forecast period owing to high demand for silicone-based potting material.
