Key Market Trends

Surface Mounting Application to Dominate the Market

  • Surface mounting, also known as chip bonding, accounts for the highest share of the Middle-East and Africa electronics adhesives market.
  • The major types of adhesives used in this application include mostly one-component systems, made from acrylics, epoxies, or urethane acrylates, and can be either electrically or thermally conductive.
  • These adhesives used have superior physical and chemical quality which helps them to have a long shelf life, a high wet strength, rapid curing, strength, and flexibility.
  • This surface mounting adhesives are used to hold SMT components on a substrate that requires double-sided processing before it goes into a solder reflow or wave solder process. Additionally, they are used to add extra holding power for larger components exposed to high shock environments.
  • Hence, owing to the above-mentioned reasons, the surface mounting application is likely to dominate the market studied during the forecast period.
