Reduced Impedance in Systems Being Achieved with Thin Copper Clad Laminates

Thin copper clad laminates are being specifically designed for use as embedded capacitance materials in multilayer rigid PCBs. Companies in the India copper clad laminates market are increasing their production capabilities in these products to offer the best mechanical strength, reliability, and capacitance stability in PCBs. With the help of thin copper clad laminates between the power and ground planes in a power distribution network (PDN), manufacturers and designers can reduce the modal resonances and lower the inductance between power and ground planes.

Thin copper clad laminates help reduce the impedance in the system and decrease the number of required surface mount capacitors. This is being achieved since these type of laminates are low-profile electrodeposited (ED) copper laminated and are thin polyimide-based dielectric products. This dielectric is engineered to have a superior adhesion to copper than conventional glass-reinforced materials utilized in rigid boards.

Crisis in Supply of PCBs Affects Market Growth during Ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic

Electronic component manufacturers are facing a crisis in the supply of PCBs due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. This is impacting the price of raw materials and affecting the lead-time of end-use products. Such trends are affecting growth of the India copper clad laminates market. In 2020, it has been found that copper output from the mines has witnessed a year-on-year drop due to the pandemic. Though annual copper demand is projected to surge, declining rate of copper deposit recovery poses a long-term threat to copper supply.

Companies in the India copper clad laminates market are facing a stiff competition from China-based copper suppliers, since these suppliers are more aggressive on price increase. Due to the ongoing crisis and poor market sentiments, many laminate vendors in India have stopped the supply of laminates for 2 layer PCB. Hence, stakeholders in India are adopting contingency planning to strategically allocate their investments, manpower, and other resources.

High Frequency PCB Designs Drive Demand for Copper Clad Laminates

Manufacturers in the India copper clad laminates market are bolstering their output capacities in rigid PCB copper clad laminates. FR-4 (flame retardant) copper clad laminate is a type of rigid PCB substrate composed of woven fiberglass cloth with an epoxy resin binder.

The fabrication of advanced multilayer PCBs is creating stable revenue streams for manufacturers in the India copper clad laminates market. Manufacturers are increasing awareness that high frequency PCB designs require extremely precise controls on dielectric constant, trace widths, and dielectric thickness, which is being achieved with the help of copper clad laminates.

Specialty Resins Crucial in PCBs to Support Growing 5G Network Infrastructure

The rapidly growing 5G network infrastructure in Asia is creating lucrative opportunities for companies in the India copper clad laminates market. SABIC (Saudi Basic Industries Corporation) has announced to boost production capacity of its specialty NORYL™ SA9000 resin to support the rapid growth of PCBs used in 5G base stations of Asia. The increased availability of specialty resins is benefitting manufacturers in the India copper clad laminates market to help reduce lead times. Such trends are helping laminate manufacturers to achieve greater flexibility to meet client requests for quick turnarounds.

Specialty resins are in important component in copper clad laminates used in PCBs for the 5G infrastructure segment. Stakeholders are increasing their investment in specialized materials and resins to support the global adoption of 5G network.

Manufacturers Comply with Stringent PCB Requirements in Automotive Applications

The ultra-connected world is anticipated to make future life easier at homes, in cars, and to expand virtual environments. It has been found that low-loss materials play a crucial role in high frequency applications. Since substances with high dielectric constants break down more easily when subjected to intense electric fields, manufacturers are increasing the availability of low dielectric constants involving copper clad laminates. Hence, companies in the India copper clad laminates market are unlocking growth opportunities in autonomous vehicles.

Automotive radar and automated driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are fueling the demand for copper clad laminates. Crash avoidance systems are dependent on radar, which requires high frequency PCBs, and is translating into revenue opportunities for copper clad laminate manufacturers. Manufacturers are adhering to stringent PCB requirements for automotive applications by avoiding the use of anodic filaments in PCBs to prevent shorts between copper clad laminates and conductive traces.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Stakeholders in the market are witnessing a year-on-year drop in copper output from mines due to COVID-related issues. Moreover, besides India, Taiwan-based copper foil suppliers are facing a stiff competition from China to increase the prices of copper clad laminates and related products & materials.

The India copper clad laminates market is estimated to clock a favorable CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period. However, copper clad laminates are subject to stringent requirements in automotive applications. Manufacturers should avoid anodic filaments in PCBs, as defects in the dielectric can lead to shorts between copper clad laminates and conductive traces.

India Copper Clad Laminates Market: Overview

  • Demand for high performance halogen-free copper clad laminates has been increasing for the past two decades. Copper clad laminates possess excellent properties such as higher thermal resistance, higher Tg, and low CTE, lower water absorption for higher conductive anodic filament (CAF) resistance and reliability. These properties make it an ideal raw material in the manufacturing of PCBs.
  • Rapid developments in telecommunication technology to well beyond 10Gbps and the ubiquitous application of mobile interconnections all over the world in the past few years have fuelled the demand for signal integrity, which is determined by dielectric properties, dielectric constant (Dk), and dissipation factor (Df)
  • Copper clad laminates are specifically designed for use as embedded capacitance materials in multilayer rigid printed circuit boards. They offer the best mechanical strength, reliability, and capacitance stability on the market.
  • Copper clad laminate (CCL) applications are increasing in the hardware industry; hence, it is used as raw material for printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing. PCB could be countered as foundation to manufacture numerous electronic products such as TV, radio, PCs, and other devices. Therefore, rise in production of PCB is anticipated to boost the CCL market. The electrical industry, especially PCB application, accounts for nearly a quarter of the global CCL business share.
  • Copper clad laminates are laminates of paper or glass fabric used to make PCBs. A laminate is a multiple layer of paper or glass fabric that has been joined/fixed together using a resin. A foil of copper is laminated on the top of the sheet (either on one side or both sides) to provide current carrying capability to the laminate.

Key Drivers of India Copper Clad Laminates Market

  • Demand for PCBs is rising in several end-use industries. PCBs are devices used to connect electronic components through signal traces, tracks, and conductive pathways in a copper sheet laminated with non-conductive substrate.
