Market Overview:

The global SMT placement equipment 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 consumer electronics, medical devices, and automotive components. Additionally, the growing demand for telecommunications equipment is also contributing to the growth of this market. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period owing to the presence of a large number of manufacturing facilities in countries such as China and Japan.

Global SMT Placement Equipment Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

SMT placement equipment is a type of machine that is used to place surface mount technology (SMT) components on a printed circuit board (PCB). These machines are important because they allow manufacturers to quickly and accurately place these components on PCBs, which helps to reduce manufacturing time and costs.

High-Speed Type:

High-speed types are used to transfer the placement data from one or more sources to a high-speed printer. The high-speed printers print out the results of testing and inspection in less than 0.1 seconds, which is much faster than other conventional printers that take around 5 minutes for each page.

The global high-speed type market size was valued at USD 1,849.7 million in 2016.

Medium-Speed Type:

Medium-speed type is a category of leadless surface mount devices (LSDs) that have no internal leads and are smaller than standard small outline package (SOP). Medium-speed devices can be used in surface mount technology placement equipment. They are available in two forms, quad flat and dual land. The size of the device determines its application area; for instance, miniature components go into micro packages while larger components go into nano packages.

Application Insights:

The global market has been segmented into automotive, consumer electronics, medical, telecommunications equipment and other applications. The consumer electronics segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016 and is projected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This can be attributed to growing demand for small form-factor pluggable (SFP) devices from various end-use industries such as IT & telecommunication, industrial and home appliances among others.

Automotive was one of the fastest growing segments in 2017 owing to increasing demand for lightweight componentry that offer enhanced performance characteristics at a reduced cost per unit area compared with their PCB counterparts. Moreover, rising R&D investments coupled with technological advancements are expected to drive growth over the coming years within this sector as well.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period owing to increasing demand for smartphones and tablets, rapid industrialization, and favorable government policies promoting investments in manufacturing facilities.

The Asia Pacific has witnessed a significant increase in smartphone shipments over the past few years. Smartphone shipments have grown substantially across developing economies such as India, China, Indonesia, Vietnam among others that are majorly driven by rising disposable income of consumers coupled with growing penetration of mobile internet services providers such as Airtel Ltd., Vodafone GmBH amongst others. This has led to an increased demand for SMT equipment within these regions thereby driving regional growth over the forecast period.

Europe is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate during the forecast period owing to increasing investments from prominent players seeking expansion opportunities across developed economies including Germany and U.K.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for miniaturization in electronic devices
  • Rising demand from the automotive industry
  • Growing popularity of surface mount technology (SMT)
  • Proliferation of LED lighting and semiconductor packaging industries
  • Technological advancements in SMT placement equipment
