As the global demand for technology and electronics continues to increase, so too does the demand for electronics adhesives that keep things running smoothly.

The basic building block for everything from your smartphone to your laptop is the printed circuit board (PCB) and these components use adhesive materials to be constructed (e.g. bonding surface-mount components, wire tacking, conformal coatings and in encapsulating (potting) elements). Furthermore, as electronic devices become ever smaller and move to wafer-level processing (WLP), the demands on semiconductor packaging materials are becoming even more pronounced. 


Miniaturization of electronic products and the increasing use of industrial sensors and communication hardware in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) ecosystem is resulting in a growing demand for adhesive materials. The electronics adhesives market is expected to be worth $6 billion by 2020 and coupled with that growth will be further investment in supporting equipment and services, e.g. precision dispensing, fast-curing devices and product inspection.
