Increasing healthcare investments, ease of access to cutting-edge products, and expanding elderly population in North America is slated to positively shape the market outlook. As per the U.S. Census Bureau, by 2060, nearly one in four Americans will be aged 65 or above and the number of people above 85 will triple, augmenting the demand for pacemakers. In fact, the US FDA is increasingly handing out clearances for advanced pacemakers, creating further impetus for market growth. This positive outlook for the region’s pacemaker market is slated to greatly favor hermetic packaging industry growth.

Stringent regulations on hermetic packaging may impede industry development

Hermetic packaging products need to comply with strict standards in the medical, military and defense sectors, which may limit its growth in the long run. The military & defense sector has a set of standardized regulations when it comes to the packaging of electronic devices and components it uses. Meanwhile, the medical sector also possesses stringent rules of itself, designed to ensure patient safety and uninterrupted operation of medical devices. As these regulations continue to tighten, industry players are finding it increasingly difficult to comply to them.

On the basis of configuration, the hermetic packaging market is segmented into pressed ceramic, metal can, and multi-layer ceramic. Metal can segment is anticipated to surpass USD 4 billion by 2032, driven by their cost-effectiveness and low lead-count. The segment growth can also be attributed to the higher preference for metal cans for hybrid and linear applications.

These packages have a metal base comprising lead through a glass seal, which can be a compression or matched seal. Post the device assembly, the metal can is welded to the metal base to constitute the hermetic seal.
