Key Findings

•The global Surface Mount Technology (SMT) screen printers market is expected to witness a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x %, posting a revenue of about $ x million in 2014.
•The SMT glue dispensers market is, however, likely to witness a downward trend in the growth rate throughout the forecast period, with a revenue worth $ x million in 2014.
•The primary reason for the downward trend in the glue dispensers market is the preference of SMT screen printers as a viable alternative over SMT glue dispensers when it comes to mass PCB manufacturing.
•Although the growth rate is negative, the revenue of the SMT glue dispensers is increasing slowly year-on-year because the need for glue dispensers is inevitable when it comes to the production of complex PCBs with a variety of components on board.
•Fully automatic SMT screen printers are expected to dominate the market during the forecast period, holding about x % of the total screen printer revenue. This is because customers are transforming their shop floor to fully automated ones.
•From end user’s perspective, both the markets are witnessing an increased demand from consumer electronics and computing, especially smartphones and tablets. Demand for screen printers and dispensers will further strengthen during the forecast period.
•The automotive segment is expected to have an increased demand for screen printers and glue dispensers during the forecast period. This has resulted from the increased usage of electronics applications in the automotive sector, where all the analog meters are replaced with digital meters.
•Although there are no game changing technology trends for the last few years, competitors are improvising their product with additional features such as twin-roving camera vision system for inspection, dual lane system for mass production, and others to boost their sales.
•The jet printing technology, which is designed to be an alternative for screen printers, is not a threat to the screen printers market at present. However, if the production speed of the machine is increased and machine cost is reduced compared to screen printers in future, it will definitely pose as a disrupter for the screen printers market.
•Competitive positioning is expected to remain constant, with an increasing prominence on strategic partnerships to drive sales and mergers and acquisitions for broadening the product portfolio. As a result, ASM assembly systems acquired DEK, the top SMT screen printers market share holder, to expand its product offerings and customer base.

Comparison of Revenue—SMT Screen Printers and SMT Glue Dispensers

These x types of SMT equipment can be placed at opposite ends of the growth spectrum as screen printers are expected to enjoy a steady and higher growth rate than glue dispensers during the forecast period.
•The higher growth rate of screen printers is primarily due to their increasing preference over glue dispensers.
•The Chinese market, which accounts for the largest share, is replacing glue dispensers with screen printers for the high-volume low-mix production, thus eating into the market share of glue dispensers.
•Although the SMT glue dispensers market growth rate is experiencing a downward trend, the revenue generated by this market is increasing at a slow rate.
•This is because the need for glue dispensers is inevitable in complex PCB board manufacturing.

CEO’s Perspective

Considering the production speed and cost factors, manufacturers highly prefer SMT screen printers as a viable alternative over SMT glue dispensers.
The need for glue dispensers is inevitable for complex PCB boards manufacturing—this factor results in increased revenue for the SMT glue dispensers market despite a negative growth rate.
High end-user demand is the primary driver for this market. There are no technological drivers for the past few years.
Increased demand in consumer electronics, automotive, computing, and storage industry will continue to drive the market.
Both the markets are facing a decline in average price of the equipment due to intense price competition by Chinese companies.
