The flip chip technology market market is expected to grow from $19.01 billion in 2015 to $31.27 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.1% between 2016 and 2022, according to the new market research report “Flip Chip Technology Market by Wafer Bumping Process (CU Pillar, Lead-Free), Packaging Technology (2D IC, 2.5D IC, 3D IC), Packaging Type (BGA, PGA, LGA, SIP, CSP), Product (Memory, LED, CPU, GPU, SOC), Application and Geography – Global Forecast to 2022,” published by MarketsandMarkets.
The flip chip technology market is driven by factors such as increasing demand for miniaturization and high performance in electronic devices, and strong penetration in consumer electronics sector.
3D IC packaging technology to register the highest growth rate
On the basis of packaging technology, the Flip Chip Technology Market is segmented into 2D IC, 2.5D IC, and 3D IC packaging technology. With the semiconductor technology moving towards integration of diverse chips, 2.5D IC packaging technology and 3D IC packaging technology are becoming the mainstream trend in obtaining the integration objectives. Owing to the growing demand for increasing density, higher bandwidth, and lower power, design teams are expected to adopt 3D ICs with TSVs, which promise ‘more than Moore’ integration by packaging a great deal of functionality into small form factors, while improving performance and reducing costs.
Applications in consumer electronics held the largest market size and would also grow at the highest rate
Smartphones & tablets are observed to have the highest adoption among all the consumer electronic devices, owing to their small form factor and better performance requirements to operate at a higher bandwidth, at a relatively lower cost. The automotive market is expected to grow at a second-highest CAGR rate, catapulting the flip chip technology market further.
The market in Asia-Pacific to grow at the highest rate
The APAC held a large share of the overall flip chip technology market in 2015; moreover, the market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2022. Countries in Asia-Pacific are major manufacturing hubs and are expected to provide ample opportunities for the growth of the flip chip technology. The growing demand for high performance in smartphones and automotive MCUs is driving the market in this region.
