Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 100 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency. The global impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are already starting to be felt and will significantly affect the Package Substrate market in 2020.

COVID-19 can affect the global economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand, by creating supply chain and market disruption, and by its financial impact on firms and financial markets.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought effects on many aspects, like flight cancellations; travel bans and quarantines; restaurants closed; all indoor events restricted; over forty countries state of emergency declared; massive slowing of the supply chain; stock market volatility; falling business confidence, growing panic among the population, and uncertainty about future.

This report also analyses the impact of Coronavirus COVID-19 on the Package Substrate industry.

The package substrate is directly used to carry the chip, which not only provides support, protection and heat dissipation for the chip, but also provides electronic connection between the chip and the PCB motherboard.

Based on our recent survey, we have several different scenarios about the Package Substrate YoY growth rate for 2020. The probable scenario is expected to grow by a -6.9% in 2020 and the revenue will be US$7.4 billion in 2020 from US$ 7.96 billion in 2019. The market size of Package Substrate will reach US$ xx in 2026, with a CAGR of xx% from 2020 to 2026.

According to Prismark data, the global packaging substrate market bottomed out in 2017, and it is expected that by 2022, it will reach a compound growth rate of 2.9% to reach US $ 7.74 billion. Different from the low growth rate of the global market, the output value of mainland China’s packaging substrates has increased year by year after 2012, reaching US$ 1.29 billion in 2017 (mainland output value, including domestic and oreign capital, global share of 20%). estimated 2018-2022 The annual output value of mainland packaging substrates will maintain a compound growth of more than 12%, and the industry transfer trend is obvious.

According to different substrate materials, package substrates can be divided into BT and ABF.

The BT substrate can avoid leakage current and popcorn phenomenon (impacted by moisture and high temperature) in semiconductor packaging testing.

The ABF material can meet the requirements of fine lines and small line widths in line with advanced semiconductor manufacturing processes. It is suitable for ICs with high pin count and high transmission. It is mostly used in PC products such as graphics chips, processors, and chipsets.

It accounts for about 70% of the global packaging substrate market. Although ABF has great potential, the use of ABF materials requires a large amount of equipment investment, a long customer certification cycle, and a high barrier to entry.
