San Jose, CA (Vocus) October 25, 2010
Growth momentum in the electronic thermal management market derailed during the years 2008 and 2009 due to the global economic recession. Decline in various end-use sectors including automotive, computers, telecom, industrial/military, medical/office equipment, and consumer electronics dampened the market prospects during the period. However, with the recovery of global economic scenario in 2010, the market is likely to stabilize and register growth in subsequent years. Developments in technology and marked increase in the production of miniaturized microprocessors along with increased use of mobile devices are likely to impact market growth. In the wake of growing sophistication and functionality of a variety of electronics systems, thermal management has assumed an important role in the management of costs associated with product development and time required for market release. Todays printed circuit boards (PCBs) need efficient thermal management solutions such as thermoelectric coolers and heat sinks to control rising power densities.
With developments in technology and marked increase in the production of miniaturized microprocessors, demand for electronic thermal management devices is on a rise. The miniature size of the processor and the enhanced power levels generate high levels of heat. Devices are required to moderate this and to cool heat generation. Electronic thermal management devices perform this job and cool the electronic components and the system from excessive heat during operation. Electronic thermal management devices are likely to command a premium market in the coming years for their effective use in PCs, telecommunication systems and servers. Also, demand is likely to increase with system integrators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) integrating more components on PCBs. Nevertheless, market growth is likely to be restricted with the system-on-chip design complexities.
The United States represents the largest regional market for electronic thermal management worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Electronic Thermal Management. The market declined noticeably during the recession period. However, the US electronic thermal management market is expected to cash in on the rising complexities associated with board level packaging as well as with miniaturization of components. Power densities continue to rise unabated at board level package, resulting in demand for powerful and efficient thermal management products. Hardware products such as heat sinks and thermoelectric coolers, and software for designing these products would be the key beneficiaries. Asia-Pacific represents the second largest market for electronic thermal management. Registering a CAGR of more than 5.0% over the analysis period, the region also represents the fastest growing market for electronic thermal management. Hardware category constitutes the largest product segment, while software is poised to demonstrate fastest growth with a CAGR of more than 7.0% through 2015.
By end-use, Computers represents the largest end-use segment. On the other hand, the application of electronic thermal management solutions is projected to demonstrate fastest growth in Medical/Office Equipment with a CAGR of more than 8.0% over the analysis period.
Providing thermal management systems in electronics is becoming more complicated, with more and more miniature sized components in tight packages with high power output coming into use. Thermal management for cooling such products requires the device design to be aligned in parallel form with the design of the electronic product. The techniques used in the thermal modules effectively predict the thermal behavior of a product and helps in the electronic component designing at a great saving in cost for optimal thermal performance. The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling simulations facilitate designing of the product allowing for convective heat transfer and airflow. The CFD simulations provide an indication of the heat distribution at various points in the device such as components, system and board level.
