Introduction of the novel and innovative electronic products in automotive, industrial, and consumer categories is another key reason behind the burgeoning demand for high-performance conformal coatings for PCBs.

Owing to growing demand for electronics, numerous companies are venturing into the market creating intense competition. Intensifying competition among different companies in the electronics market is promoting manufacturers seek for processes that are affordable and maintain performance efficiency in circuit board protection conformal coatings.

Printed circuit boards form an integral part of electronic products, and their performance is vital to the durability and functioning of different products. Hence, demand for high-performance printed circuit boards (PCBs) is growing in the market.

Use of conformal coatings is to protect PCBs from dust, moisture, humidity, and extreme temperatures, thus ensuring the durability of electronic products. With competition on the rise, electronics manufacturers are increasingly seeking PCB conformal coatings to enhance the quality of their products and consolidate their footing in the market.

What are the Restraints being Encountered by Conformal Coatings for Printed Circuit Board Providers?

PCBs often experience delamination, which is the separation of the coating from the surface of the circuit board. The process occurs when poor adhesion and compatibility between coatings and printed circuit boards results in the contamination of the board, which can significantly hamper its durability.

Subjecting printed circuit boards to high temperatures can cause cracking or delayering of conformal coatings. These factors pose a challenge to the growth of the market.

Additionally, growing concerns about the concentration of volatile organic compounds in conformal coatings and their adverse impact on human health are creating a negative image of the use of coatings in electronics among consumers. This factor, coupled with fluctuating prices of raw materials, is likely to stifle the growth opportunities for conformal coating for PCB manufacturers.
