The global electrostatic discharge (ESD) foam packaging market is expected to impress with a substantial rise in demand due to the swift surge in the miniaturization of electronic devices. Moreover, there is a rise in the demand for mobility in devices around the globe, which could augur well for the market. The adoption of smaller, lightweight devices could be greatly augmented with the demand for mobility.
Furthermore, the popularity of smaller electronics in the automotive and telecommunication industries could translate into a hefty demand for the miniaturization of semiconductor integrated circuits (ICs) as well. The advantage of ESD foam packaging over other products in the neutralization of tribocharging in densely-built, smaller semiconductor ICs and printed circuit boards (PCBs) could promote the market growth.
The global ESD foam packaging market, according to Transparency Market Research (TMR), is foretold to touch a revenue collection of US$233.8 mn by the end of 2022, advancing from a valuation of US$172.5 mn achieved in 2017. During the forecast period 2017–2022, the market could expand at a 6.3% CAGR.
Global ESD Foam Packaging Market: Major Insights
