Conformal Coatings Market: Cracking and Delamination from PCB Surface Could Dent Growth

July 18, 2019 by Steve Blade  

According to the latest report by Fact.MR, the conformal coatings market for PCBs reached the valuation of US$ 8,871 million in 2017, and is expected to register 5.6% CAGR during 2018-2026. With extensive application of PCBs in consumer electronics, including smartphones, computers, home appliances, and entertainment systems, along with the advancement in these devices and appliances, the demand for conformal coatings market for PCBs is significantly growing.

Cracking and Delamination of Conformal Coatings from PCB Surface Could Dent Market Growth

PCBs often experience delamination which is the separation of the coatings from the surface of the circuit boards. The process occurs when poor adhesion and compatibility between coatings and printed circuit boards results in the contamination of the board which can significantly hamper its durability.

Subjecting printed circuit boards to high temperatures can cause cracking or delayering for conformal coatings. These factors pose a challenge to the growth of conformal coatings market for PCBs. Additionally, growing concerns about the concentration of volatile organic compounds in conformal coatings and their adverse impact on human health are creating a negative image of the use of coatings in electronics among consumers. The factor coupled with the fluctuating prices of raw materials is likely to stifle the growth of conformal coatings market for PCBs.
