UV Curing System Market

Impact of COVID-19 on UV Curing System Market:

The world is facing an economic crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has severely affected various industries such as automotive, semiconductor, energy, etc. Manufacturing units are hampered due to shutdowns and the availability of labor or raw materials. This has resulted in a huge gap between supply and demand. Further, there is a restriction on foreign trades due to the lockdown of international borders, non-operational distribution channels, and various government laws to take precautionary measures for public health and safety. However, it is expected that there will be an increasing focus on hygiene and sanitation due to the rise in people’s concern for a better and safer lifestyle. An increase in demand from medical and consumer electronics is also likely to drive the UV curing system market gradually from 2021 to 2025.

The business for UV curing systems specific to medical and consumer electronics verticals is less affected compared to other verticals. Maintaining a safe, consistent, and efficient manufacturing process is the basic requirement to ensure the highest quality of products. The growing cost pressures, regulatory and safety guidelines, and increasingly diverse product portfolios are a few of the challenges faced by this industry. UV curing systems are used in a variety of medical products such as syringes, catheters, hearing aids, dialysis machines, medication patches, hydrogels, filters, and test strips, for the speedy production of coatings, inks, and adhesives. There is an increased demand for essential services, medical equipment, and other necessary devices for helping COVID-19-affected patients and preventing the spread of the virus. This increased demand is expected to spur the use of UV curing systems in this vertical.

Market Dynamics:

Driver: Growing inclination toward eco-friendly products, along with stringent regulations regarding use of green products

In traditional heat-based and air-drying curing techniques, solvents were evaporated. As a result, environmental pollutants were generated due to the emission of substantial quantities of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases, thereby impacting the environment and the ozone layer. VOCs are usually formaldehyde and organic solvents. Most of the VOCs include solvent-based formulations that evaporate into the atmosphere to contribute to the depletion of the ozone layer or the greenhouse effect. The generation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during coating or drying applications is highly undesirable because these VOCs can cause headaches and dizziness, along with a few long-term effects, although uncertain, such as cancer.

Restraint: Limited depth of curing

UV curing technology is limited to opaque parts and leaves adhesives on the surfaces owing to oxygen inhibition. While curing in the presence of air, free radicals can react with oxygen before initiating polymerization, which leads to incomplete curing and a sticky surface. UV curing systems also have the issue of a high degree of shrinkage, thereby making it difficult to cure deep sections and shadowy areas.

To overcome shadows, a second cure operation in a heat curing oven is possible. However, there are many electronic component assemblies, especially in industries such as automotive, agriculture, consumer electronics, and construction that cannot be exposed to secondary cure. The secondary operation slows down the production assembly process and consumes more energy than that of traditional curing systems.

Opportunity: High-growth prospects of UV curing technology in new applications

Currently, coating, bonding, and printing are the most prominent applications in which UV curing systems are used. Industries such as printing, healthcare, and automotive are the major users of UV curing systems.

Other emerging applications of UV curing are 3D printing, digital printing, and metal coating, which hold high-growth potential. These applications are currently in the phase of development with effective commercialization expected in the coming years. According to the American Coatings Association (ACA) article, in 2013, metal decorating, the sixth-largest growing UV/EB application, accounted for an annual growth rate of 9.3% and 3D printing accounted for the fastest growth rate of 27.3%, while the overall annual growth rate for UV curing from 2015 to 2017 was 6.7%.

UV curing technology is also expected to be recognized as one of the leading technologies for metal coating applications than for plastic and wood coatings in the future. The metal coating market includes several potential industries, such as automotive and aerospace & defense.

Challenge: Slowdown in production of manufacturing industries due to COVID-19

According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the COVID-19 outbreak can cause global FDI to shrink by 5% to 15%, due to the downfall in the manufacturing sector due to factory shutdowns. The negative impact of COVID-19 on FDI investments is expected to be high in energy and automotive industries among others due to the unavailability of raw materials. In the consumer electronics industry, smartphones and consumer electronics companies have started a reduction in production operations and postponed the introduction of new products owing to interruption in the supply of components. Therefore, due to COVID-19, there is a slowdown in the production of manufacturing industries, which would impact the demand for UV curing systems in such industries. This hinders the growth of the UV curing system market for a few months/years.

Based on end-use vertical, the medical segment held the largest share of the UV curing system market in 2019.

UV curing systems are used in a variety of medical products such as syringes, catheters, hearing aids, dialysis machines, medication patches, hydrogels, filters, and test strips, for the speed production of coatings, inks, and adhesives. These systems help in reducing costs and provide high-quality products. The adoption of UV curing in the medical vertical has increased owing to its properties such as rapid processing, cure on demand, ease of automation, low temperature, and lower energy requirements. UV spot cure and UV LED flood cure are mainly used for the assembling of medical electronic components. The features of UV curing technology, such as precise irradiance control and wavelength selection based on the requirement help medical device manufacturers with organized UV curing in assembly processes. UV curing systems are a key solution for high-volume automated processes, which reduce material and operating costs.

The mercury lamp segment projected to account for large size of the UV curing sytem market during the forecast period.

Mercury-based UV lamps employ an electric arc through vaporized mercury to produce UV light. These lamps can disinfect an area in lesser time, as the aperture produced by the lamp is broad. These lamps can emit UV light of UVA (320 to 400 nm), UVB (280 to 320 nm), and UVC (200 to 280 nm) wavelengths. The intense spectrum of light causes the rapid curing of numerous applications, such as printing, bonding and assembling, and coating and finishing. These lamps are limited to short lengths, and lamp life is usually less than 1,000 h. Furthermore, mercury lamps need to be handled properly as they consist of high-pressure gas, which may burst if the pressure is increased. Moreover, the mercury lamp market is expected to grow due to increasing industrial development and stringent government regulations as well as increasing adoption in the medical vertical.

North America estimated to account for the largest size of the UV curing system market in 2019.
