Electronic Materials and Chemicals Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
Asia Pacific dominated the electronic materials and chemicals market with a share of 30% in 2020 due to rapid industrialization and urbanization in developing nations. According to National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency (NIPF), India’s share in global electronics manufacturing is anticipated to reach $400 billion by 2025. Increasing consumption for photolithographic printing and use of solar photovoltaic panels has also augmented the growth of electronic materials and chemicals market. According to International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Asia continued to dominate global solar capacity expansion with a 56 GW increase (about 60% of the total in 2019) and 64 GW increase (about 70% of the global expansion in 2018). Hence, this expansion is steadily making India as a global hub of electronics system, which fueling the growth of electronic materials and chemicals market.
Electronic Materials and Chemicals Market Drivers
Improving Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology
Internet of Things and artificial intelligence technologies are expected to drive semiconductor industry which in turn propels the growth of electronic materials and chemicals market. According to Indi-Asian News Service (IANS), the global Internet of Things semiconductor component market will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 19% from $33 billion in 2020 to $80 billion in 2025. The use of AI-related, rising demand for autonomous vehicles has opened a new revenue application for the electronics materials market. The digital display industry is also set out for better standards by introducing flat panel displays like LED and LCD television sets, requiring high-quality electronic materials for production.
Growing Consumption of Semiconductors
Semiconductors are widely used in photo resistors and solar photovoltaic cells. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) the worldwide sales of semiconductors reached $39.0 billion for the month of October 2020, an increase of 6.0 % compared to the October 2019 total of $36.8 billion and 3.1 % more than the September 2020 total of $37.9 billion. Thus, the high sales of semiconductors will be creating a growth in the market of electronic materials and chemicals.
Electronic Materials and Chemicals Market Challenges
Stringent Health Regulations
Stringent health regulations towards electronic materials and chemicals may hamper the market growth. According to the Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA), employers must protect workers from crystalline silica in the US. Silica alloy can cause serious lung disease and lung cancer. High exposure to silica can cause of illness with headache, fever, chills, aches, chest tightness and cough. Silica alloy exposure has been linked to other illnesses including renal disease and other cancers. Thus, the harmful effects of silica may hamper the market growth.
Impact of COVID-19
COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the electronic materials and chemicals market owing to restriction imposed by government related to import and export. United States are the world’s largest market for consumer electronic products. But Due to COVID 19 U.S. total exports of electronic products fell by $4.1 billion (1.5 percent) to $273.0?billion in 2019, according to United States International Trade Commission (USITC). This has resulted in shrinkage of electronic sector, thereby creating downward trend in the growth of the electronic materials and chemicals market.
Electronic Materials and Chemicals Market Landscape
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Electronic Materials and Chemicals Market. Major players in the Electronic Materials and Chemicals Market top 10 companies are Linde Plc., Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., DuPont de Nemours Inc., Cabot Microelectronics Corporation, BASF SE, Hitachi Chemical co., ltd., Solvay S.A, Evonik Industries AG, Eastman Chemical Company, Zhejiang Kaisn Fluorochemical Co.
