How are Technological Advancements in Automotive Electronics Conformal Coating Stimulating Demand?

Protecting automotive electronics has become significant over the years. Conformal coating is required to protect vital components against harsh operating conditions and to increase surface insulation resistance due to space reduction between tracks.

With advancements in technology, the coating methodology has undergone various changes. Materials like parylene are now applied via chemical vapor deposition in a slow and controlled process to ensure no loss in material thickness at the edges of the components, which would normally be an issue with wet coatings.

Will Rising Adoption of Electronic Components Act as a Growth Lever for Automotive Electronics Conformal Coatings?

As ownership of automobiles increases globally, so is investment in adequate electronics and electrical components. Moreover, technological advancements to streamline driving experience is prompting investments in equipping vehicles with advanced systems.

Components such as rain sensors, HVAC control systems, automatic dimming mirrors, airbag actuation systems, automotive electronic control units (ECUs) and printed circuit boards (PCBs) are being equipped across contemporary vehicles, thus inclining demand for solutions ensuring longevity of the same, inclining demand for conformal coatings.

What are the Key Challenges Associated with Applying Automotive Electronics Conformal Coatings?

While acrylic conformal coatings are relatively simple to remove from the surface, the challenge lies with removing polyurethane conformal coatings. Polyurethane conformal coatings are slightly difficult to remove due to their chemical resistance and can be removed through specifically designed stripping solutions.

However, silicone coatings can only be removed through abrasion which has high chances of damaging the electronics equipment as there is every possibility of contamination of the surface. Hence, key players are expected to experience limited sales of these conformal coatings, restraining growth.
