DUBLIN–()–The “Global SMT Equipment Market with Focus on Placement and Inspection Equipment: Size, Trends & Forecasts (2019-2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The report provides analysis of the SMT equipment market by value, by segment and by region. The report further provides a detailed regional analysis of the global SMT placement equipment market by value.

Surface Mount Technology or SMT is a process which attaches electronic components on Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs). The process replaced the previously used method, i.e., through-hole technology (THT). The SMT is performed with the help of numerous equipment: placement equipment, inspection equipment, soldering equipment, cleaning equipment, etc.

SMT placement equipment or pick-and-place machines are machines operated to place surface-mount devices (SMDs) on printed circuit boards. The machines are used to provide high precision and high speed for the placement of a wide range of electronic products such as capacitors, resistors, etc.

SMT inspection consists of automated optical inspection (AOI), an autonomous inspection of printed circuit board production process by a camera, which identifies missing components and quality defects. Furthermore, SMT inspection includes solder paste inspection (SPI), which examines or monitors the solder paste deposits on the PCBs.

The global SMT equipment market has witnessed stable growth in the past few years and is expected to grow at a progressive rate during the forecasted period (2019-2023). The growth of global SMT equipment market would be supported by the growth drivers such as rising number of electric vehicles, growing consumer electronic devices, an increasing number of wearable devices, upsurge in the Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices, growth in smartphone penetration, emerging industrial robotics and many other factors.

However, the growth of the global SMT equipment market is being hindered by various challenges. Some of the distinguished challenges faced by the market are economic uncertainties and lack of trained labour.

Moreover, the report also assesses the key opportunities in the market and outlines the factors that are and will be driving the growth of the industry. Growth of the overall global SMT equipment has also been forecasted for the years 2019-2023, taking into consideration the previous growth patterns, the growth drivers and the current and future trends.
