- The ESD trays market is expected to witness a remarkable expansion due to rising electronic production.
- Use of alternative packaging material, such as air bubble wraps and cartons, poses a market share risk to ESD trays.
- Increased spending on defense and military in North America and APEJ regions is driving growth.
Globally, nearly six percent of the electrical & electronic devices such as PCBs and semi-conductor gets damaged every year from static electricity which is generated due to frictional contacts or electrostatic induction between two electrically charged objects. Due to such reasons, ESD trays are predominantly used as protective packaging across electronic and electrical industries. Countries like China, Taiwan, and South Korea have highly demanded ESD trays in order to render protection to devices from external damages.
Conventionally, air bubble and cartons were used for protection of electronic devices and equipment’s, but with innovation, in technological development and material use, ESD trays are majorly used to transport and store static sensitive components. ESD trays are built with the feature to render hermetic protection from external humidity and static flow of electricity. Overall, the ESD trays market is expected to witness a remarkable expansion due to rising electronic production.
Manufacturers of ESD trays are now using metal layers or metal oxides to provide conductive properties to packaging material instead of additive. Moreover, use of carbon additive damages the mechanic properties of devices and component. Thus leading ESD tray manufacturers are using current metal filler instead of additive which has saved immense production cost and increased revenue margin of the manufacturer.
On the flip side, use of alternative packaging material such as air bubble wraps and cartons poses a market share risk to ESD trays which is hampering the revenue of manufacturers operating in ESD packaging market.
An observing trend in increasing demand of ESD trays is high growth rate in defense & military across the region of North America and APEJ. With countries in particular China and U.S. are the heavy spender nation on defense and military. Such factor is accelerating a steady demand across ESD trays manufacturers.
