Market Segmentation

By End-User:

  • Automotive
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Retail and Packaging
  • Construction
  • Others (Healthcare, Aerospace and Defense, etc.)

The automotive industry holds promising growth across Southeast Asia in the coming years, which, in turn, would propel the demand for inks used in printed electronics owing to the upcoming plans of automotive manufacturers to expand their vehicle production capacities.

In April 2021, Vingroup announced establishing its second automobile plant in Indonesia. The company has sold 30,000 cars in 2020, which is expected to reach more than 45,000 units in 2021.

The application of printed electronics is becoming more common across the automotive industry, especially for manufacturing OLED displays/taillights or sensors & heating elements in seats. The conductive ink used for printing seat heaters helps make vehicles safer & more comfortable.

The rising trend of autonomous vehicles has fundamentally transformed the automobile interiors with the increasing usage of sensors & touch screens. This trend augments the demand for Printed Electronics and, consequently, for inks used in them.

By Resolution

  • Below 100 Lines/Cm
  • 100 to 200 Lines/Cm
  • Above 200 Lines/Cm

With the mounting need of end-users for smaller & compact electronic devices, the need to print smaller electronic boards and circuits is increasing significantly. Hence, above 200 Lines/cm resolution type inks shall experience a rapid increase in their demand during 2022-27.

Currently, 200 Lines/cm resolution printable inks hold a significant market share, mainly due to the majority of assembly lines & electronic manufacturing units and the availability of old systems that use them for printing on electronic devices. However, the demand is expected to slowly shift to resolution above 200 lines/cm due to the highly dynamic electronic industry, i.e., experiencing a trend to make compact devices, which requires the devices to work on a higher resolution.

Recent Developments:

  • In 2018, DuPont launched its second generation of In-Mold Electronic (IME) materials with prime advancements like significantly more flexibility than epoxy-based systems, better cost savings, and shorter processing times. The second generation IME is also ideal for attaching LEDs & microcircuit controllers.
  • In April 2021, Janoschka, a known leader for providing integrated prepress solutions for the packaging industry announced to integrate DuPont™ Cyrel® EASY BRITE for better overall consistency while printing. 
  • In 2020, Henkel along with six medical & technology companies developed smart health patches that enable continuous, wireless, & remote monitoring of the heart rate, respiration, & temperature of patients.

Country Landscape:

  • Singapore
  • Indonesia
  • Malaysia
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

Here, the Printed Electronics Inks Market witnessed a noticeable growth in Malaysia during 2017-19. It owes to the rising inflow of FDI into the electronics manufacturing industry and growing industrial base in the country, thereby promoting the growth of the electronic manufacturing industry and driving the demand for inks used in printed electronics.

  • In February 2021, Leuze electronic GmbH + Co. KG, an optical sensor manufacturer announced to choose Malaysia for establishing its new production plant.
  • In June 2021, Austrian company AT&S announced to invest USD 2.01 million for establishing a production facility in Malaysia for high-end Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) and Integrated Circuit (IC) substrates.
