The global low temperature co-fired ceramics market is undergoing growing adoption in the present market, especially in consumer electronics and other segments. The consumer electronics sector has been utilizing this technology as the electronic gadgets are getting miniaturized in their sizes with demands of high performance, leading to the heating issues of smaller electronic circuit boards. This in reduces the performance of these gadgets over a prolonged usage. To address, this issue, the LTCC technology has started getting adopted globally by the manufacturers of the consumer electronics. Also, the technology is gaining adoption in the robotics, which are used at present times in the treatment of COVID-19 infected patients.
Among the various types of LTCC systems, the glass ceramic composites (GCC) hold the largest market share. However, the adoption for glass bonded ceramics (GBC) LTCC systems is expected to be increasing fastest during the forecast period 2020-2025.
Apart from growing demand for the low temperature co-fired ceramics, there are some issues which are likely to restrict the market growth. These include shrinkage issues affecting the performance of LTCC tapes combined with their lower thermal conductivity.
The global low temperature co-fired ceramics market accounted for $4,015.0 million in 2019 and is expected to be $5,547.9 million by 2025. The market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 10.14% during the forecast period 2020 to 2025. The market growth is attributed to the increased adoption of the technology in the consumer electronics and other (telecommunications and MEMS) sectors. The use of robots in treating COVID-19 infected patients has escalated the demand for the LTCC.
