As the market advances, maximizing performance and increasing reliability will be under the spotlight. The pressure to decease size and weight, at reduced costs, is on the increasing trend. To remain competitive, it is essential for manufacturers to take advantage of the new advances in technology. There is therefore an increasing demand from the OEMs and the EMS providers for screen printers and glue dispensers with a higher throughput and faster cycle times.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan World SMT Screen Printers and Glue Dispenser Markets, reveals that the screen printer industry earned revenue of $ 190.2 million in 2005 and expects to reach $366.4 million in 2012. The glue dispenser market has earned revenues of $26.3 million in 2005 and estimates reach $42.1 million in 2012.

“The demand for screen printers especially in the Asian region is on the rise,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Lavanya Ram Mohan. “This will boost the total screen printer market. This is a direct result of the explosive growth of the electronics manufacturing service (EMS) providers market in Asia especially China.”
In comparison, the glue dispenser market is a moderately growing market. The Chinese market, which accounts for the largest market share, is rapidly replacing their glue dispenser with screen printers especially for high volume low mix production. However, the glue dispenser market is expected to witness a relatively steady growth in the North American market. The market is conducive for fast and strong growth especially for screen printers and glue dispensers as well only if the manufacturers successfully monitor the changes and take proactive steps to capitalize on the opportunities.
Glue dispenser manufacturers are already facing stiff competition within the market as well as from other products that threaten to replace them. One such instance is the Chinese market, where the demand for glue dispensers has dwindled drastically. The use of screen printers in the place of glue dispensers is rampant which has eaten into the glue dispenser’s market share. In order to survive and turnaround the current scenario, manufacturers need introduce a diverse product portfolio, which will be able to meet the customers demand for speed, accuracy and price.
“Today consumers constantly demand for continuous miniaturization of electronic products. This challenges the manufacturers and designers to come up with intricate and a densely packed design. The reduction in component sizes to meet this demand in turn presents a daunting task for screen printers and glue dispensers to deposit such minute and accurate dots,” says Ram Mohan.
As the electronic market grows, the sizes of the electronic components themselves are shrinking. The increasing trend towards smaller components makes accurate deposits a big challenge. As the market advances, maximizing performance and increasing reliability will be under the spotlight. The pressure to decease size and weight, at reduced costs, is on the increasing trend. This would require manufacturers to roll out dispensers as well as printers that have very high levels of accuracy.
Screen printer and glue dispenser manufacturers will need to constantly update their product technology in order to remain successful in the market. Screen printers and glue dispenser manufacturers have to invest further into R & D to come up with the solutions. The market is already witnessing an increased focus on R & D, with manufacturers concentrating on developing solutions to overcome existing challenges.
