Publication Month: Oct 2020 | Report Code: TIPRE00010967 | No. of Pages: 126 | Category: Electronics and Semiconductor | Status: Published

The in-mold electronics market was valued at US$ 95.5million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 942.6million by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 44.6% during 2020–2027.

In-mold electronicscome with various advantages over their standard counterparts. They are ~50% lighter than standard electronics due to the absence of mechanical buttons and switches. The fewer parts and manufacturing steps make the production process of the in-mold electronicsmore straightforward and more efficient. Additionally, assembly of parts in conventional electronics is a time-consuming process, which is eliminated in in-mold electronics. In an in-mold electronic, assembly is a single-connection, snap-on process, significantly diminishing assembly time while enhancing reliability and ease of service.Also, in-mold electronics enable design freedom by allowing 3D modern Smart Surfaces design with continuous surfaces. In-mold electronics integrate flexible circuitry and electronic elements into three-dimensional molded plastics. By impressing circuits straight onto plastic substrates, product designers can combine touch controls, lighting, and antennae in applications such as dryers, refrigerators, washing machines, automotive consoles, dashboards, steering wheels, and armrests. An in-mold electronic control panel dismisses complex, thick, and solemn multi-layer assemblies that are typicallya part of traditional electronics designs; as a result, they can be as thin as 2mm.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on In-Mold Electronics Market

The North America region especially the U.S. witnessed an unprecedented rise in number of confirmed cases resulting in large-scale lockdown across different regions as well as industrial activities. As a result, several small & medium enterprise owners have limited their industry personnel whereas many others have laid off non-essential employees shortly owing to restricted business operation. In addition to this, the company also minimized the allocated budget for manufacturing of electronics owing to economic slowdown, which affected the global nosiness activities. Moreover, the component manufacturer, supply chain and distributor lack of availability of business also has significantly influencing the production of electronics by the In-Mold Electronics market players. Thus, the market is expected to witness a major drop in the demand from the end-users for the current year and the subsequent years to recover from the impact of COVID-19 pandemic.
