(MID) Molded Interconnect Devices Market worth over $840mn by 2024
Published Date: July 17, 2018 Authors: Ankita Bhutani, Pallavi Bhardwaj
(MID) Molded Interconnect Devices Market size is set to exceed USD 840 million by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
The molded interconnect devices market is projected to witness a strong growth across consumer device applications owing to the ability of the devices to integrate numerous electrical and mechanical functions, reduce circuit density, and facilitate miniaturization of the products. The devices require fewer auxiliary components, thereby saving considerable costs and driving the industry growth. Low failure ratio and high reliability of these devices can be attributed to the existence of less auxiliary components and a low degree of system complexity. These devices also have superior environmental benefits such as recyclable thermoplastic materials with minimal additives.
These devices enable the combination of mechanical components and electrical circuits on three-dimensional thermoplastic materials. The technology allows to integration of chips directly with their assemblies, saving space and facilitating miniaturization. For instance, the smartphone antennas can be installed directly within the housing with the help of the devices. The products can be manufactured with fewer assembly steps as compared to the traditional PCB manufacturing and offer a high degree of freedom to circuit designers. Integration of sensors and functions reduces assembly time and production steps, resulting in high-quality components and optimization of supplementary costs. These factors are anticipated to positively impact the MID market growth over the coming years.
