Thick Film Market Analysis :

Thick film technology is used in the production of electronic devices such as circuits, heating elements, and sensors. For instance, opening of air bags in a crash is due to installed sensors. The market is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period, owing to increase in demand for solar cells or sensors. Thick film finds several applications in aerospace, military, medical, communications, industrial, and other market segments. Thick films have high tolerance, temperature coefficient, and resistance to moisture. Thick film devices find their use in mechanical and chemical devices, which consists of optical sensors. Increase in the demand for consumer electronic goods across the globe is expected to drive the market in the coming years.

COVID-19 impact analysis

The electronic industry is facing many consequences due the outbreak of the coronavirus. The production facilities are shut down due to disruptions in supply chain and lack of workforce. Moreover, many e-commerce companies such as Amazon and Flipkart have disconnected their supply of nonessential electronic devices. Apple Inc has made an excellent move by stopping the launch of the new iPhone. Similarly, Nissan has suspended its production. However, the demand for laptop and tablet has increased rapidly during this outbreak, due to increase in adoption of work-from-home policies in offices. The market is expected to grow after the lockdown.

Market scenario analysis

The thick film market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years. The growing demand for new electrical consumer goods and other industrial devices is boosting the global thick film market. In 2018, Saudi Arabia and Japan signed an MoU to build the world’s largest photovoltaic project by 2030. The budget for the project was $200 billion. These kind of projects from various regions are boosting the global thick film market. The government initiative to support innovative devices that helps to reduce the carbon emission offers lucrative opportunity for the market to grow during the forecast period.

Market trend
