Market Overview

The flip chip technology market was valued at USD 24.45 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach a value of USD 33.91 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.75%, over the forecast period (2019 - 2024). The medical industry is also embracing flip chips while suggesting health and fitness tracking bands to patients for measuring heart rates, blood pressure, glucose levels, and pulse. 

  • Packaging has become a key determinant for using or abandoning a device in a new design. Miniaturization plays an important role in product design. A small form factor in terms of size and weight, yet an increase in computing power helps to achieve the optimum design which is required by most of the consumer electronics. This is driving the flip chip market to grow in various segments especially electronics.  
  • For modern IC designs, the increasing design complexity and decreasing feature size makes I/O connection a critical problem. High integration density, larger I/O counts, faster speed and better signal intensity provided by flip chip packages is contributing to the market growth.
  • One of the factors hindering the growth of the market is packaging cost, which is more than wire bonding. The increase in cost is due to substrate and wafer bumping. These two cost drivers are related to the act of bringing I/Os out under the die.

Scope of the Report

Flip chip technology is one of the oldest and widely used techniques for semiconductor packaging. Flip chip was originally introduced by IBM 30 years ago. Nevertheless, it is keeping up with times and developing new bumping solutions to serve advanced technologies, such as 2.5D and 3D. Flip chip is used for traditional applications, such as laptops, desktops, CPU, GPU, chipsets, etc.
