The limitations imposed by several governments across the region to control the spread of COVID-19 during the initial time frame of the outbreak (Q1 2020) has severely affected the production process due to the restriction of a limited workforce in industries such as automotive, and electronics. Consumer electronics and automotive are the significant sectors that contribute towards the growth of the UV curing system market in the region. Owing to job loss or salary cut, buying capacity of the customer decreased substantially. The reduced buying power impacted the sales of consumer electronic across the region. The Indian automotive industry suffered a daily loss of US$ 31,164 million approximately during 2020 according to Automobile Industry Associations. Similarly, according to the World Economic Forum the car sales in China dropped by 92% in the first half of February 2020. However, as the economies re-opened and industries began their operations, the requirement for UV curing system from various end-users has started to grow gradually. Also, with ease in earlier restrictions, companies can now work with high workforce capacity. The downturn inindustrial activities have negatively impacted the UV curing system market.

UV bonding and assembling is a process used for glass, metal, and plastic bonding purposes and assembly of printed circuit boards (PCB). The bonding used in this process uses ultraviolet sensitive adhesives that are applied to products and exposed to energy from UV curing lamps for curing. UV curing makes the process faster, more flexible, long-lasting, and environment friendly than other processes.
UV LED curing method reduces the emissions of the volatile compounds. Therefore, the demand for the UV curing systems using LED increased in various verticals, which is driving the growth of the market. However, limited depth curing may act as a restraint in the growth of the UV curing system market.
The rise in demand for PCB from various industries, such as electronics and automotive, influences the rise in demand for PCB across the globe. Manufacturers of consumer electronics, wearable gadgets, such as smartwatches that contain chips and flexible sensors, are seeing new prospects owing to the Internet of Things (IoT). Breakthroughs in device design and manufacturing technology are having a favorable impact on PCB production across the world. Thus, the rise in PCB production is propelling the demand for bonding & assembling processes from the manufacturers. Additionally, demand for glass bonding is expected to increase in end-use sectors such as electronics, furniture, and transportation, which would fuel the market growth for the UV bonding and assembling application segment during the forecast period.
The other segment in the UV curing system market includes food & beverage, manufacturing, packaging, wood and others. UV curing system is used in these applications for different purposes such as bonding & assembling, disinfection, and printing. With the advanced features provided by the UV curing systems over the conventional curing system is leading various companies to opt for this system as the curing method for faster drying. These reasons will support the growth of UV curing systems currently and in the coming years. For instance, UV curing system in the food and bev verage is industries is increasing used for disinfecting contaminated ground and surface water. They are also actively used for treating food and packaging material that pass through conveyor belts to ensure safety of product before reaching the ultimate consumer. These factors are propelling the demand for UV curing systems among the food a& beverage industry over the years. Additionally, the rise in adoption of UV curing systems for bonding applications across the wood industry owing to its fast dry nature is further propelling the growth of the market.
Based on end users, the UV curing system market is segmented into automotive, healthcare, electronics, and others. In the automotive industry, UV curing is mainly used to dry the paints faster and increase the curing speed. Since automobile companies' painting/drying capacity is one of the main blockages in most OEM lines and body shops, UV curing technology provides an outstanding time-saving procedure for the companies. This method is used in various other applications in the automotive industry, such as varnish on the body or scratch-proofing coating on the exterior or interior components, anticorrosion coating on tanks or metal springs, deburring of plastic parts, screen printing on glass panes, and adhesives on trim panels or rear spoilers. For instance, Heraeus Holding uses UV curing to provide various automotive sector services. It offers UV curing costing for headlamp lenses, lighting reflector housing, exterior body components, and underhood components. This increases the use of UV curing in the automotive sector. Therefore, the UV curing system market for the automotive segment is expected to grow in the coming years.
UV LED Curing Association, American Coatings Association, and International LED-UV Association play an influential role in the UV curing system market ecosystem. The COVID-19 outbreak has affected the UV curing system market growth to a considerable extent. The outbreak affected business revenues and global supply chains due to factory shutdowns, temporary closure of borders, and trade restrictions across the globe. However, this market is expected to do well as the situation is coming back to normalcy.
