Chip Mounter Market Drivers
The surge in demand for miniaturized consumer electronics devices will boost the Chip Mounter Market Growth
The consumer electronics industry is an ever-evolving industry, with new innovations and technologies coming up constantly to offer consumers more advanced features such as fingerprint sensors in mobiles and smart televisions. The increasing demand for miniaturized products has resulted in the development of smaller hardware components such as printed circuit boards which are small in size and can run smoothly while integrating a large number of components. Chip Mounting technologies help acquire just that and as a result, the adoption of these technologies is rising and thereby boosting the Chip Mounter Market growth. In February 2020, Apple’s supplier Wistron started assembling PCBs for high-end iPhones in Bengaluru, India. This plant will require chip mounting technologies to place the electrical components onto the PCBs. These factors will further influence the Chip Mounter Industry Outlook.
Increasing demand in the automotive industry especially rising demand for electric vehicles will drive the Chip Mounter industry forward
The growing popularity of electric vehicles around the world is also opening up new opportunities for the Chip Mounter Market. In the first quarter of 2020, according to the European Free Trade Association, electric vehicle registrations in Europe increased by 57.4%. Because electric vehicles primarily consist of motor controller circuitry built on printed circuit boards the demand for chip mounting technologies is expected to increase for the assembly of such PCBs. This growing demand for electric vehicles along with the government initiatives in buying EVs will boost the adoption of Chip Mounting technologies for the PCBs in the forecast period thereby boosting the Chip Mounter Market size.
Chip Mounter Market Challenges
Challenges in repair, rework and reliability for printed circuit boards hinder the Chip Mounter market growth
This chip mounting technology manufactured devices are smaller, have more features and are less expensive.
