The global hermetic packaging market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6.7% over the forecast period 2019 to 2026 and expected to reach around US$ 5.4 Bn by 2026.
Hermetic packaging is any type of sealing or package that makes an object airtight which means it prevents the passage of oxygen, air, or other gases. Initially to seal the product only airtight glass was utilized to seal the container however as the technology progress various materials are introduced in the market which can be utilized in various type of industries. Hermetic seals are essential to the safe and correct functionality of many healthcare and electronic products.
Growing need of protecting highly sensitive electronic components of various industries such as electronics, automotive, aeronautics, and healthcare from extraneous particles, such as atmospheric pressure, moisture, and soil/grime; is the key factor responsible for driving the market growth.
Growing aerospace & defense industry has been favoring the hermetic packaging industry. Globalization coupled with the relatively cheaper airways has been encouraging new fliers across the globe, thereby leading to increasing flying frequency. Furthermore, rising research and development activities in the aerospace and defense sector segment is anticipated to boost the use of hermetic packages. The U.S. defense sector is expected to grow significantly due to new policies that are implemented to strengthen the military services across the country.
The ceramic to metal seals type is anticipated to drive their usage in the healthcare field due to its high corrosion resistance ability. They are being increasingly utilized in implantable electronic devices such as cochlear implants, pacemakers, defibrillators, and neurostimulators.
Based on the type, the market has been segmented into ceramic to metal, glass to metal, transponder glass, reed glass, and passivation glass. Ceramic to metal sealing type segment held the largest market in 2018. This can be attributed to its ability to provide long and durable hermetic sealing; the broad range of applications in various industries, and it offers great insulation from electrical signals when compared to glass to metal seals. Ceramic–metal seals are utilized in industries that demand high voltage, high operating temperature, special chemical resistance, or biocompatibility. Transponder glass is gaining demand in the Asia Pacific region due to the huge livestock market in the region. The increasing access to technology, growing disposable income, and awareness about hermetic packaging across the region are facilitating the usage of RFID devices by farmers, thereby driving the demand for transponder glass-based hermetic packages.
Based on the application, the global hermetic packaging market is segmented into aeronautics & space, military & defense, automotive, healthcare, telecom, and others. The military & defense segment held the maximum share of the market in 2018. Growing military and defense budgets, rising internal and external security threats across the world, stable growth in global GDP, and falling crude oil prices are some of the key factors expected to propel investment in the defense sector, which would further lead to an increase in demand for hermetic packaging during the forecast period. The application of hermetic packaging in the field of space & aeronautics and the automotive sector is growing rapidly. Growth in disposable income, increase in the need for automobiles, in addition to the growing affordability of automobiles, are expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
Geographically, the global market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the market due to high energy needs, the presence of emerging economies, and increasing defense spending. China, Japan, India, and South Korea are some of the key contributing countries in the region. Furthermore, the local presence of market players and expanded consumer electronics sector in the region are also contributed for the dominance of the region. North America held the second largest market across the world in 2018. Aeronautics and space industry is one of the major consumers for hermetic packaging in this region. The high cost of hermetic packaging is responsible for ongoing research to find a substitute, which is anticipated to hinder the market growth.
