Report Digest


Conformal coating is a polymeric film applied on printed circuit boards through brushing, spraying, dispensing and dip coating. They are used to protect the PCBs from environmental effects such as rust or corrosion, chemicals, moisture etc. It can be used to reduce the formation of whiskers too.  Conformal coatings help in providing insulation, eliminate complex enclosures, performance degradation due to environmental affects etc.

The global automotive conformal market is expected to have a significant growth in 2021, over 2020. The growth is driven by increase in electronics requirement in vehicles and technological advancements worldwide.

Growing Popularity of Electric Vehicles

Increasing air pollution is a global concern and steps are being taken to reduce it. For instance, government in various countries are investing in electric vehicles. The need of protecting the electronic components of Electric vehicle will grow as per its increasing sales, thus driving the conformal coatings market. The sensors (used for GPS, detecting harmful gases, etc.), automotive ECUs, PCBs used for proper engine functioning and safety system require conformal coating for protection against challenging temperature and adverse conditions.

High Cost of Maintenance

Care needs to be taken while selecting the coating material for PCBs as some coatings are easily removed and some of them are complex to remove. For instance, Silicone coatings cannot be removed properly as there is no solvent for removing it thus it can cause contamination on PCB. Thus, difficulty in removal process and high cost of repairing if contaminated are the leading causes that may inhibit the growth.
