Hermetic Packaging Market Growth Factors

Aerospace and Electronics Industries Embrace Hermetic Seals for Enhanced Component Protection

Hermetic packaging shields products against various environmental threats, such as humidity, moisture, grime, soil under atmospheric pressure and other natural hazards that could harm delicate electronics or interrupt electrical connections within hermetic products. Product applications that are disrupted could result in disastrous outcomes, are vulnerable to harsh environmental circumstances, and need to be hermetically sealed. The aerospace industry uses hermetic packaging seals in many systems within an airplane.

The packaging is used to ensure that the integrity of delicate electronics within a box is maintained. The rising uptake of packaging solutions to safeguard extremely delicate electronic components is notably high and anticipated to escalate further in the forecast period.

Increasing Adoption of Consumer Electronics to Drive Market Growth

The use of consumer electronics is increasing the use of hermetic packaging solutions. Factors such as increasing purchasing power and strong economic growth are boosting the demand for smartphones, which will eventually upsurge the demand for packaging. Advancements in wireless mobile telecommunication technology, such as 4G, IoT, and 5G, will also boost the adoption of other smart devices.

Furthermore, the introduction of innovative household products in the market is likely to boost product consumption. Appliances equipped with voice assistance and Wi-Fi connectivity are being used due to their greater convenience. As a result of all these factors, consumer electronics is expected to drive the consumption of hermetic packaging and is anticipated to increase market growth in the coming years.


Emergence of Not Quite or Almost Hermetic Packaging is Restraining Market Growth

Hermetic packages, which are made from polymeric material as opposed to ceramics, metals and glasses that are also known by other names, such as not quite or almost hermetic and quasi hermetic, are expected to hinder market growth. These packaging approaches hold the promise of reliable alternatives for the market if manufactured, designed, and tested properly. Owing to the benefits of near packaging, such as lightweight, lower cost and size, coupled with the anticipated increase in production and the development of standardization, it is expected to be operating in the packaging, especially for products that do not have a high cost of system letdown relative to the packaging costs. Such factors are anticipated to restrain the hermetic packaging market growth.
