Market Overview:

The global hand soldering market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for hand soldering in the electronics manufacturing and repairing applications. In terms of type, the soldering iron segment is expected to hold a major share of the global hand soldering market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its low cost and easy portability as compared to other types of handsolders such as soldering stations and others.

Global Hand Soldering Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Hand soldering is the process of joining metal components by melting solder and applying the molten solder to the joint. It is done with a hand-held soldering iron. The importance of hand soldering is that it produces a strong, reliable joint, which can be difficult to achieve with other methods.

Soldering iron:

Hand soldering is a process of assembling printed circuit boards (PCB) by using surface mount components and through-hole components. The technique requires special tools and equipment which are used to solder the component leads. A hand soldering iron consists of a main body with an attached tip for heating the component, this tip can be switched on/off as per requirement, along with different temperature settings.

Soldering stations:

Hand soldering is a process of assembling electronic components by using hand tools. It's an old and traditional method used before the advent of modern day equipment such as solder wick, iron, and automated machinery. In this process; there are no use of any other tool or equipment apart from hand tools which include pliers, screwdrivers etc. to assemble the circuit boards while installing parts including resistors, capacitors etc in electronics products including computers & laptops among others.

Application Insights:

Electronics manufacturing was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Electronics manufacturing includes assembling, testing, packaging and other operations for electronic products. These processes require good quality equipment as well as skilled operators who are capable of making precise soldering joints. Thus, increasing production of electronics across the globe is expected to fuel demand for hand-soldering over the coming years.

The electronics repairing segment accounted for a significant share in 2017 due to rising consumer awareness about product repairability and durability among other factors such as availability of service centers or workshops at their disposal with which they can approach service providers regarding any issues related to product usage or malfunctioning which also acts as a key driving factor behind market growth in this segment.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global hand soldering market in 2017. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period as well due to increasing demand for electronic devices and components. China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and India are some of the countries that dominate this industry owing to their large electronics manufacturing sector.

North America is projected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period owing to growing demand from end-users such as consumer electronics manufacturers and repair shops. Increasing penetration of advanced technology in various end-use industries such as automotive has led consumers prefer repairs rather than replacements which will drive growth across North America during the forecast period  (2018 - 2030). Moreover, rising investments by key players for improving their distribution network will fuel regional growth during 2018 - 2030  time frame.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and electronics industries for hand soldering services.
  • Growing popularity of hand soldering as a low-cost, high-quality alternative to automated soldering processes.
  • Advances in hand solder technology that improve the speed, accuracy, and reliability of the process.
  • Increased use of lead-free solder alloys in electronic assemblies to meet environmental regulations.
  • Growing demand for customized hand soldering services to meet specific requirements of individual customers
