Electrically Conductive Adhesives Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast 2025

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC501


Assembly and packaging of electronic device uses electronic conductivity adhesives. These are produced by the element which makes up to 80% of the total weight of electrically conductive adhesives. Electronic adhesives offer enhanced central conductive and thermal characteristics which makes them as a substitute soldering systems. The electrically conductive adhesives market is growing at a significant pace owing to the growing usage of compact devices such as communication drives, CDs, and flash drives. Also, the miniaturization of electronic devices is also likely to fuel the market for electrically conductive adhesives. PCBs replaced with multi-chip modules also increase the demand for electrically conductive adhesives. Moreover, the innovative technologies in semiconductor industry will also favor the growth of electrically conductive adhesives market. However, the increased installation cost for product assembly and laminating & packaging will hamper the growth of electrically conductive adhesives market. The manufacturers of electrically conductive adhesives display huge growth opportunities owing to the increase in research and development investments for the development of microelectronic devices.

Market Classification and Overview

The global electrically conductive adhesives can be segmented based on application, chemistry, filler material, type and region. Epoxy, acrylic, silicone, polyurethane, and others are major chemistries of electrically conductive adhesives. Epoxy segment was the major revenue contributor in the global electrically conductive adhesives market in 2015 owing to its properties such as less handling of assemblies and shorter processing time. Epoxy also offers fast production in addition to superior electromagnetic interference (EMI)/radio-frequency interference (RFI) between metal plates. The extensive use of epoxy adhesives in various industries such as biosciences, consumer electronics, military & commercial aircraft, and automotive among others also drives the market for electrically conductive adhesives in epoxy segment. Based on applications, automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace, biosciences, and others are the major segments of electrically conductive adhesives market. The automotive segment led the market in terms of value, whereas the bioscience application is projected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. Silver fillers, copper filler, and carbon filler are the major segments based on filler materials of electrically conductive adhesives. The silver filler was the leading segment due to its good adhesion, low shrinkage properties and better resistance to moisture.

Regional Overview

The market for electrically conductive adhesives is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa. Asia-Pacific was largest revenue contributor to the electrically conductive adhesives market due to the rapid penetration and development of smart phones in the region. China is the largest automobile manufacturer, thus a major contributor to the growth of electrically conductive adhesives market in the region. The demand for consumer electronics in Saudi Arabia drives the market for electrically conductive adhesives in the LAMEA.
