Alcohol-based Liquid Flux to Enjoy Close to 80% of Overall Demand, Projects Fact.MR
Published : 09 Apr 2021 Industry: Chemical & Materials
South Asia & Oceania currently account for a majority of the liquid flux being consumed, followed by East Asia. This is due to the fact that a large number of electronics manufacturers have set up their bases in these regions, especially Taiwan and Vietnam. Emergence of newer electronics manufacturing clusters in developing countries such as India is projected to give impetus to market growth over the coming years.
Increasing electrification of vehicles and the inevitable shift towards remote monitoring and automation are driving a majority of end-use industries to integrate electronics into their operations. This is driving the market for liquid flux, which finds application in the SMT assembly of electronics. Additionally, advent of 5G infrastructure and changing consumer preference towards purchasing advanced electronics products are indirectly providing a boost to market growth.
Owing to the above mentioned factors, the global liquid flux market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of over 7% through 2031.
Key Takeaways from Market Study
