The global solder materials market size is anticipated to reach USD 1.41 billion by 2025 expanding at a CAGR of 3.4%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising demand for advanced consumer electronics and resultant rise in gadget repair and refurbishing activities is expected to boost the demand for soldering processes. Introduction of lead-free solders due to stringent regulations against the lead toxicity is expected to propel the industry growth over the forecast period. Rising usage of new solid-state semiconductor technologies in consumer and industrial applications is also anticipated to support the market development.
The nano-paste and sub-micron particles are expected to gain traction due to characteristics, such as lower melting point temperatures, large surface energy, large surface area per unit volume, and super magnetism. The usage of low-cost, non-patented alloy formulations in place of patented products is predominant in the industry. However, the use of non-patented alloys may hamper the overall product quality, which is expected to have a negating impact on the industry growth in the years to come.
