Market Synopsis of Global Chip on Flex Market:
Chip-on-Flex refers to the semiconductor assembly technology wherein the microchip or die is directly mounted on and electrically connected to a flexible circuit which is a circuit built on a flexible substrate instead of the usual printed circuit board. The shorter interconnection paths on chip on flex simplifies the process of designing and manufacturing the product and improving its performance. Chip on flex has some important features such as heat sinks, component assembly, penalization, shielding, over molding and graphic overlay among others which makes it more acceptable among end users such as electronic industry, aerospace, defense and others. The major drivers for the growth of this market are increasing need for small and flexible electronics in various applications such as displays, sensors, lighting, biomedical implants, and radio frequency identification among others and the rapid technological advancements which lead to accurate designs and automated production, of flex circuits that helps to eliminate human errors once involved in hand-built wire harnesses. With the use of these flexible circuit board companies ensure the 100% efficiency in the products, due to which level of fault ratio is drastically reduced. Chip on flex helps in reducing the cost, improving operator ergonomics, amplified product quality and testing repeatability.
The Global Chip on Flex Market is expected to grow from US ~$1437 Million in 2016 to US~$ 1795 Million by 2021, at an estimated CAGR of 4.43%. The growth of this market can be constrained by the increased cost of raw materials in related industries like the electronic industry along with the wide variety of technology used and the consumer needs changing to efficient, cheaper and powerful consumer electronics and mobile technologies.
