Flip Chip Technology Market Size Forecast to Reach $36.7 Billion by 2026


(MENAFN- GetNews) Increase in Demand for Mobile Phones, Computer and Consumer Applications Is Pushing the Growth for Flip chip Technology Market.

The Flip Chip Technology Market is forecast to reach $36.7 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2021 to 2026. Flip chip is a packaging technology that interconnects the chip and substrate of a package carrier using a bump. It is also used in interconnecting semiconductor devices such as IC chips, printed circuit boards (PCBs) and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) to external circuitry with soldier bumps to be deposited on to the chip pads.;

Flip chips mostly appear in high-volume consumer products such as computer peripherals, mobile phones, digital cameras and MP3 players. Flip chips offer a wide variety of benefits as compared to wire-bond packaging and has good electrical performance, high-speed and reliability. One of the factors positively influencing the demand for flip chip technology is the high functionality of devices such as smartphones, laptops and other portable devices.

Flip Chip Technology Market Segment Analysis – By Packaging Technology

There are three types of packaging technologies such as 2D, 2.5D and 3D integrated circuits. Three dimensional integrated circuits contain multiple layers of active devices which have the potential to enhance chip performance, functionality and semiconductor device packing density and are projected to grow at fastest rate of 10.1% through 2026. It has additional advantages over 2.5D IC such as enhanced capacity, improved performance and low power consumption. 3D integrated circuits are preferred over 2D and 2.5D due to reduced latency, high density, and greater bandwidth. Hence, 3D integrated circuit to register a highest growth in the forecast period.

Flip Chip Technology Market Segment Analysis – By Bumping Technology

Copper pillar bumping has become more common in the past couple of years for several reasons and accounts for over 40.5% share in 2020. It is intended as a replacement to traditional solder bumping. Solder bumping is a lower cost process than copper bumping, it doesn’t allow for the density and current capacity like copper pillar bumping due to their lower resistance. Copper pillars don’t heat as much as a solder bump reducing electro migration issues which permits higher densities. Copper pillar is likely to increase in the future as a packing technology in MEMS and PCB applications. The superior resistance properties of copper allows for smaller bumping pitches and improves electrical and thermal performance on these circuits.
