Valley Cottage, NY — (PRESS RELEASE JET) — 09/26/2017 — Cleaning is an indispensable procedure within electronic industry and has been utilized for a long time to remove possibly unsafe contaminants including flux, adhesives and solder residues, dust, oil, grease etc. during the manufacturing and maintenance of electronic products. The purpose behind cleaning of electronic devices is to improve the life of the product. In electronic industry, cleaning is required at different stages, like before soldering and stencilling to remove the contaminants and after stencilling to remove excess solder. Removal of a wide variety of solder fluxes used in electronic manufacturing and repair is also essential. Moreover, degreasing is required in electronic devices, degreaser is used to remove oil and grease from internal parts of electronic equipment and devices.Moreover, cleaning is also required for coating and adhesives removal in case of rework. Electronic cleaning solvents are extensively utilized in electronics industry for aforementioned operations. Moreover, in recent times significant developments in electronic cleaning solvents have been noticed across the globe leading to substantial demand for electronic cleaning solvents especially in Asia Pacific region.
Electronic cleaning solvent is a fast-drying solvent specifically formulated for the efficient and quick cleaning of electronic components. These electronic cleaning solvents are also used for cleaning relays, switches, terminal plugs, relays, circuit breakers, alarms, connectors, and many more. Solvent cleaning can be required at any point throughout the production, repair, and servicing in the electronics industry.
For several decades, chlorinated solvents such as CFCs chlorofluorocarbons, methylene chloride dominated the electronic cleaning solvents market. However, environmental concerns specifically ozone depletion potential, resulted in CFCs being phased out and have been replaced by a more diverse range of electronic cleaning solvents in the market. Broadly three types of electronic cleaning solvents are available flammable and non-flammable solvent cleaners and non-flammable fluorinated solvent cleaners.
The electronics industry mainly uses cleaning solvents containing modified alcohols, non-halogenated hydrocarbons or hydrofluorethers (HFEs). HFEs were developed as a substitute to the formerly preferred chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Non-inflammable hydrofluorethers have relative properties to CFCs, but pose no risk to ozone, and have low greenhouse gas potential. This product offers physical properties that are in demand for the cleaning of electronics components, such as low viscosity, relatively high density and low surface tension. Increasing awareness regarding ozone depletion and its adverse impact on human health and environment, demanded for electronic cleaning solvents which does not contain HCFCs, HFCs, or HAPs. Electronic cleaning solvents with low toxicity, non-ozone depleting and low global warming potential are likely to be high in demand due to its sustainability features.
Electronic Cleaning Solvents: MarketDynamics
Rapidly growing electronic industry and industry convergence have made electronic devices as a necessary part of human life. Electronic industry has grown rapidly during the past few years and this trend is expected to continue in future which propels the demand for electronic cleaning solvents for production as well as maintenance work. Growth in digitalization and automation drives the demand for electronic industry, which in turn fuels the growth of electronic cleaning solvents.
In emerging economies of Asia, growing population, changing life style and rising disposable income are the key drivers for the growth of electronic industry, which indirectly supports the growth of electronic cleaning solvents market.
Modern and future electronics are becoming smaller and smaller and the necessity for high performance electronic products and reliability is stronger than ever. Therefore, cleanliness of the electronic assemblies is essential to achieve good insulation resistance. This become one of the major driving factor to create significant demand for electronic cleaning solvents over the forecast period. However, increasing use of water-based cleaners over solvent-based cleaners is one of the major factor that is expected to restrain the growth of electronic cleaning solvents market during the forecast period. Water-based cleaners have several advantages over solvent-based cleaners including very low toxicity, non-flammable properties, low/non-VOC (volatile organic content) and low odour. Even exposure of VOC can have health issues and adversely impact the environment.
