Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global solder materials market in 2019. Asia-Pacific is the largest continent in the world and the companies in this region are known for their solder products. China is dominating the regional market, followed by other countries such as Japan, India, South Korea and others. Several domestic and international companies have a strong foothold in Asia-Pacific. Large investments in the manufacturing and construction sectors largely support the growth of the solder materials market in this region. In addition to a high demand for solder materials from the electronics and automobiles industries, the increasing use of these materials in electric vehicles has been bolstering the global solder materials market growth. The market, by product, is segmented into wire, paste, bar, flux, and others; the wire segment accounted for 37.4% of the market share in 2019. The solder materials market, by process, is segmented into wave/reflow, robotic, screen printing, and laser; the wave/reflow segment is the largest shareholder in the market, and robotic segment is further expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. 

Increasing Use of Automatic Soldering Over Manual Soldering Boosting Solder Materials Market Growth

The functioning of automatic soldering machine is based upon the principle to complete the solder process or operation with the help of robotic movement which helps to save labor costs.. Automatic soldering machine can also be categorized as through-hole solder machines or surface mount technology (SMT) solder machines. Automatic solder machines can deliver better results in a much lesser time. The cost associated with the machinery could vary with the service provider.

Automatic soldering is also known as robotic soldering, and it is highly efficient as robotic workstations require a minimal manual operator interference after they installation and programming. Hence, one trained solder expert can program, supervise, and unload multiple machines, thereby eliminating the cost of advanced training required for each hand solder operator. These systems also possesses High Melting Point (HMP) and are also categorized as lead-free solder. Further, a wide range of hot iron tip sizes and shapes is available for the automated soldering, along with the ability of custom fixtures based on the application. Research and development in the field of soldering are helping to build much better tools and machines.

The COVID-19 outbreak pandemic is adversely affecting economies and industries in various countries due to government-imposed lockdowns and travel bans, and business shutdowns. The chemical and materials is one of the major industries suffering serious disruptions such as supply chain breaks, technology events cancellations, and office shutdowns. The shutdown of various plants and factories in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa has restricted the global supply chain and negatively impacted the manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and product sales. Furthermore, various companies have already predicted possible delays in product deliveries and slump in future sales of their products. The travel bans imposed by countries in Europe, Asia, and North America are hindering the business collaborations and partnerships opportunities. All these factors are hampering activities in the chemical and materials industry, which are restraining the growth of various markets related to this industry

Solder Materials Market: Segmental Overview

In terms of product, the paste segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period; the growth of the market for this segment is attributed to the rising use of solder paste in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards for connecting surface mount components to pads on the board. The paste is applied to the board by stencil printing and jet printing, and the components are put in place through a pick-and-place machine or manually. In terms of process, the wave/reflow segment accounted for 42.2% of the solder materials market in 2019.

Further, the robotic segment is estimated to register a CAGR of 4.3% in the market during the forecast period. Wave solder is a large-scale solder process through which electronic components are soldered, mainly to a printed circuit board (PCB), to form an electronic assembly. The process is much faster and can create higher quality products, compared to manual soldering of components. Wave solder is used for both through-hole printed circuit assemblies and surface mount.
