According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Solder Flux Market size is expected to exceed $250 million by 2026. Proliferation of solder products in the Asia Pacific electronics business will drive the market demand over forecast time period.
Trending automotive electronics industry will stipulate product demand across the globe
Rising need for electronic parts across automotive sector will drive the product demand in the projection time period. Electronic components are utilized in vehicles for enhancing vehicle performance & efficiency as well as for entertainment units. These components are used in advanced driver assistance, electronic fuel injection, infotainment, and airbags. Rising vehicle production across the world will be increasing usage of electronics components, which will further propel solder flux market demand by the end of 2026.
Global automotive production in 2019 was recorded above 90 million units. Asia Pacific region accounted for most of the share in global automotive production. China, the largest automotive manufacturing country in the world, accounted for around 28% of the global automotive production. It can be majorly attributed to the robust economic development, increasing spending power of middle-class populace, public & private investments, favorable government initiatives, etc.
Initiatives from the Government of India such as FAME to promote faster adoption and manufacturing of (hybrid) and electric vehicles and NATRiP to improve automotive research & development in the country have attracted investments from many global players. These trends are likely to prosper the growth of regional automotive industry, which in turn, will propel the regional solder flux market consumption.
Although the market is growing at significant rate, stringent government norms may impose challenges for manufacturers over upcoming years. For instance, European Union has provided Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 for classification, labelling and packaging of solder flux, in order to protect environment and human health. These regulations may impact the solder flux market share by the end of 2026.
