Liquid Encapsulation Materials Market: Overview

Encapsulation is an advanced packaging process, which is carried out on almost all semiconductor devices that offer low stress, low warpage, and high thermal conductivity. Encapsulation can be of two forms, namely, solid and liquid. Liquid encapsulants have similar compositions to solid encapsulants; however, the resin and hardener are liquid and allow the material to be directly applied onto the chip; they interconnect typically by wire bonding instead of molding. Liquid encapsulation also provides protection to various technologies which are integrated inside a device. Liquid encapsulation is widely utilized in products with discrete sensors, integrated circuits, and optoelectronics. Rising demand for various advanced packaging techniques, and an increase in demand for consumer electronics are key factors driving the liquid encapsulation material market.

Liquid Encapsulation Materials Market: Trends & Demands

Rising trend of miniaturization, where smaller and complex structures of devices can be managed without harming their performance, is a major reason for adopting encapsulation technique for devices. In liquid encapsulation, liquid encapsulant materials are implanted on the device to overcome misconnection of electrical components on devices and to ensure the proper functioning of the device. Increasing demand for liquid encapsulation from sensors devices, wireless technologies, and optoelectronics segment is a major factor driving the global liquid encapsulation materials market. Moreover, countries such as Taiwan, Japan, China, and South Korea are likely to offer significant opportunity to manufacturers of liquid encapsulation materials owing to the expansion of electronics and telecommunication sectors in these countries.

Liquid Encapsulation Materials Market: Segmentations

Based on type, liquid encapsulation materials market can be segmented into epoxy and epoxy-modified resin. Epoxy encapsulating materials have excellent low stress, adhesive, and penetration properties, and are used for the protection and adhesion of semiconductor devices. Epoxy encapsulating materials are utilized for filling, COB potting, hermetic seal, other electrical or mechanical protection, and highly reliable adhesion of semiconductor devices.

In terms of application, the global liquid encapsulation materials market can be classified into the automotive and telecommunication, and electronics. Electronics and semiconductor devices are made of small components that need to be placed properly and accurately over the device; any misconnection or malfunction of these components can hamper the functioning of the device. Threats such as misconnection of electronic components and managing complex structure without affecting the performance of device are handled efficiently with the help of liquid encapsulation materials. The electronics segment is expected to lead the market in the next few years. This demand for liquid encapsulation material is attributed to the extensive applications and high penetration in the electronics sector. Furthermore, growing application of liquid encapsulation in the automotive industry is estimated to boost the liquid encapsulation materials market in the near future.
