Global Conformal Coatings Technology Growth Opportunities
Printed circuit boards (PCBs) used in electronic components are subject to the adverse effects of external environments, which can lead to short circuits or overall system failure. Growing concerns among electrical product manufacturers about protecting the board and its components from moisture, chemicals, salt spray, and temperature fluctuations are driving the adoption of conformal coating technology.
New York, March 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the “Global Conformal Coatings Technology Growth Opportunities” report – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06247552/?utm_source=GNW
The miniaturization of electronics has led to complex circuit design, necessitating the demand for ultra-thin insulating conformal coatings to enable reductions in PCB lead spacing. The need for coating technology with full cures in short times is a priority in terms of supporting rapid production with a low defect margin.
Currently, solvent-based polymeric conformal coating technology dominates the market; however, it is limited in chemical and electrical performance under severe operating conditions. Strict emission standards are encouraging the elimination of solvents with high volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and the industry is turning to UV/LED curing technology and the implementation of cost-effective automated systems.
Innovation in materials technology, including composite, nano and bio-based materials, and the integration of state-of-the-art application systems and advanced curing systems will create new growth opportunities for industry players. The process of applying conformal coatings is critical to providing an adequate level of protection based on system design and material selection. Various technologies are commercially available which can impact the depth of the coating applied, the level of coverage required and the adhesion of the coating to the panel and its components. The technology for applying conformal coatings is experiencing significant developments as brushing, dipping and manual spraying methods are time-consuming and laborious processes. The likelihood of defects is higher with human intervention, which can lead to production delays, and rework costs are also high. Development and implementation of automated systems such as Selective Needle Dispensing, Ultrasonic Coating, Selective Film Coating, Selective Tri-Mode Coating, and Precision Jet Coating will enable rapid throughput to meet growing demand. The integration of hybrid deposition processes that improve film thickness and compositional uniformity for complex designs will benefit industry participants. This study identifies and analyzes technological advances focused on improved protection of electrical components with the development of new materials, improved application processes, and advanced curing techniques. Technological advancements focus on PCBs used to connect electrical components in the automotive, military, aerospace, marine, telecommunications, industrial, healthcare and industrial sectors. consumer electronics. The study provides an overview of the technology’s key areas of interest, challenges, and adoption strategies for better utility. The research department also covers the business landscape of technological advancements in conformal coatings. The analyst has identified key areas of technology development for conformal coatings, categorized into different areas such as 1) materials, including polymers, composites, specialty materials, and nano and bio-based materials; 2) solvent-free and 100% solids formulations; 3) automated and selective coating techniques; and 4) UV, LED and long wave infrared heat curing. Electrical component manufacturers have increased their R&D investments in advanced systems to meet growing consumer demand for low-cost, compact and durable devices. Due to intense competition, conformal coating companies are forming alliances with research universities for the development and evaluation of new materials in different industries. Factors such as ease of processing, cost effectiveness, compatibility with different materials, and breadth of application determine the technology landscape. Answers to key questions: What are the emerging conformal coating technologies? What are the R&D efforts in materials innovation for better protection of electrical components? What are the new trends in terms of materials, application processes and curing techniques? What stage of marketing are they at? What are the growth opportunities for technology developers in the conformal coating technology market?
