Stencil Printers Market - Introduction

Stencil printing is a process of placing solder paste on the printed wiring boards (PWBs) in order to establish electrical connections. The equipment used in this process are stencil, solder paste, and printer. The stencil printer is also popularly known as a screen printer. Stencil is a thick paper with designs punched with letters. As a print medium, ink is run through the paper to imprint the letters correctly. Stencils are used to cut designs or letters and later allow the pigment medium, which in either case could be ink, solder paste, or at times, electrical current on to the PWBs through the cut-out holes.

Increasing developments in digital printing technology is likely to make screen printing a marginal technology. Screen printing process is based on the stencil principle. Stencils are primarily used in textile printing with silk screening. High versatility of stencil printing design drives the market.

Stencil Printers Market – Dynamics

Expansion of electronic industry drives the stencil printers market

Increasing demand for smart appliances boosts the demand for laser stencil printer. Electronic manufacturing service providers are looking for cost saving technology to produce superior quality electronic boards or printed circuit boards (PCBs) with components that are easy to maintain at a low-cost. Thus, expansion of electronic industry is projected to boost the stencil printer market at a considerable pace during the forecast period.

Advancements in technology offer promising growth opportunities to the stencil printers market

Stencil printing is being preferred over the traditional, yet expensive evaporation and electroplating processes due to its cost-effectiveness. Low-cost flip chip bumping technology has become a reality due to the implementation of electrolysis nickel plating process for under bump metallization (UBM) in conjunction with stencil printing of solder pastes for the formation of solder bumps. Stencil printing of solder paste for flip chip wafer bumping is a cost-effective process. Thus, advancement in technology is anticipated the drive the stencil printers market.
