Global SMT Placement Equipment Market 2018-2022 | Technological Advances in Product Offerings Drive Growth | Technavio

Business Wire

LONDON–()–The global SMT placement equipment market research report by Technavio predicts the market to post a CAGR of more than 6% during the period 2018-2022.

A key driver for the global SMT placement equipment market is the increase in demand for PCBs. PCBs form the core of electronic devices and provide an electrically conductive path for many components such as resistors, capacitors, transistors, ICs, and diodes. During the forecast period, there will be an increase in demand for SMT placement equipment to place components on PCBs without overlaps and loose connections. The vendors are expected to invest significantly in SMT equipment as the demand for PCBs in increasing.

This global SMT placement equipment market research report also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the period 2018-2022. Technavio classifies an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

Global SMT placement equipment market: Technological advances in product offerings

Advanced SMT placement equipment possesses the capability of maximizing throughput and integrating seamlessly with other SMT equipment. The vendors have been increasingly concentrating on incorporating flexible and modular gantry systems and improved feeder systems. Linear motors are employed on the X and Y axes to improve accuracy, speed, and servo-loop stiffness.

“Vendors have been emphasizing on the high servo-loop gain of the SMT equipment because it leads to increased axis acceleration and deceleration and reduced induction motor heating. In addition, the SMT placement equipment is being increasingly integrated with high-resolution verification cameras and fine adjustment systems to place electronic components quickly onto a PCB before soldering,” says a senior research analyst at Technavio.
