Memory Packaging Market

Memory Packaging Market Driven By Advancement In Consumer Electronics Is Estimated To Reach US$ 28.08 Bn By 2023

The memory packaging market involves various processes and technologies that are utilized for the encapsulation and protection of integrated circuits and semiconductor chips. Memory packaging protects chips from ambient, thermal, and mechanical stresses and allows high-density mounting on printed circuit boards. It maximizes signal integrity and chip performance while minimizing cost. With the exponential growth in consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, digital cameras, and others, there is high demand for advanced memory chips and semiconductors with higher processing power, storage capacity, and efficiency. This is driving innovation in memory and semiconductor packaging technologies. Important types of memory packaging include ball grid array, surface-mounted technology, chip-scale packaging, and flip chip.

The global Memory Packaging Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 28.08 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the important trends in the memory packaging market is the advancement of 3D integrated circuit (3D IC) packaging technology. 3D IC allows stacking of silicon wafers or chips together vertically to form a single device with multiple silicon layers connected through short vertical interconnects called through-silicon vias (TSVs). This innovative packaging technology significantly improves space utilization and performance by shortening interconnects’ lengths between silicon layers. Companies are developing advanced 3D IC packaging technologies utilizing TSVs to support growing demand for smaller, thinner, and more powerful devices driven by IoT and artificial intelligence. Leading players are also focusing on developing new metal organic compounds suitable for memory packaging applications.
