Many manufacturers today must depend on a dual supply chain to accommodate both leaded and lead-free processes. The study finds that maintaining dual processes, along with the growing scarcity of some leaded components, adds extra costs. This state of economic inefficiency is a burden on the industry. This study examines the current and future state of lead-free usage in high-reliability applications. The study examines the use of reballing lead-free assemblies in order to meet high-reliability requirements, and it estimates the average costs that this workaround typically adds to board production. It also estimates the price differential of scarce components and identifies the tipping points at which the industry can be expected to go fully lead free. These tipping points and other indicators are the basis for a 10-year forecast of the ratio of tin/lead to lead-free solder consumption, both worldwide and in North America. In the end, the growing cost differential between leaded materials and components will force a shift to lead-free electronics in high-reliability applications. The study provides a look at how manufacturers are coping with these problems today and how this trend will affect the industry in the future.
The global market for Situation Awareness System is projected to reach US$135 billion by 2020, driven by the need for efficient management of security threats against a backdrop of continuous rise in security infringements the world over. Technology innovations and growing awareness over the benefits offered by Situation Awareness System are spurring adoption in plant automation, homeland security, aviation, maritime security, construction, cyber security, healthcare and automotive sectors. The United States represents the largest market worldwide, followed by Europe. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 10.9% over the analysis period.
The need to protect critical infrastructure across the world has given rise to the concept of critical infrastructure protection (CIP), which consists of technologies, systems, solutions, physical measures, processes, policies, and services that underpin the safety, security and economic well-being of people and critical national resources. CIP solutions assist in countering the risk of incapacitation, exploitation, or destruction of critical infrastructure and key resources from various threats including terrorist attacks and cyber hacking. Besides mitigating the impact of natural disasters, CIP measures and solutions assist in protecting vital assets such as public access places, transportation services, energy facilities, and telecom services, all of which are critical for ensuring delivery of essential services and the orderly functioning of the economy. Realizing its significance, stricter CIP compliance standards are being enforced by governments across the world for critical electric grid, telecom and water distribution facilities controlled by both public sector and private sector operators.
The global market for electronics contract manufacturing (ECM) services should total $515.6 billion in 2015, and reach nearly $561.2 billion by 2016 and $845.8 billion by 2021, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% from 2016-2021.
The global market for thermal interface materials reached $715.9 million in 2014. This market is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% to reach nearly $1.1 billion in 2020.
The high price of oil in the past few years has been a catalyst for development in other alternative energy sources. Semiconductor technology surrounding the alternative energy markets includes advanced IGBT design, optoelectronics, advanced power conversion ICs, digital signal processing, MCUs, and advanced mixed signal and analog circuits. This report discussed the potential for these products to be the next killer green application. Renewable, alternative energy technologies continue to grab the attention of private industries and world governments. Semiconductors are used in these technologies to convert the energy or power to something functional, such as converting solar energy into electricity.
