OSATs are gaining benefits from advanced packaging in automotive.
PACKAGING DEDICATED TO AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS IS GROWING AND WILL REACH $7B IN 2023
The automotive market grew by 7% in revenue in 2017, while semiconductor technology in the automotive market is growing by 20%. Electronic devices are more and more common in cars and the number of electronic systems is also increasing. The quantity of electronics in a car has increased 2.5 times since the 90’s; in 2017, 26 cm² of semiconductor substrates was used in a car, while in 2023 we expect 35 cm². Four main trends are leading this augmentation, electrification, autonomy, connectivity and comfort. All of them involve a large number of sensors, power supplies, communication chips, lighting components and processors that can come from the consumer market or be developed specifically for automotive. This increase in electronic devices in cars will drive the packaging market. In fact, in 2017, the packaging for automotive total revenue was quoted at ~$3.7B and it will reach ~$7B in 2023, including LED module. The automotive packaging industry is involved in many device types and thus in many packaging platforms. In the report,you will find detailed scenarios for growth of the market with a breakdown by packaging platform and automotive application, such as radar, LiDAR, power devices, lighting and photonics.
DESPITE THE HIGH DEGREE OF REGULATION, CONSUMER PACKAGING TYPES ARE SLOWLY ADAPTED TO, AND ADOPTED BY, THE AUTOMOTIVE MARKET
THE BIG WINNERS OF DIVERSIFICATION AND THE INCREASE OF ELECTRONICS IN THE AUTOMOTIVE MARKET ARE THE OSATS
Players in the advanced packaging industry for automotive can be split into two groups, the IDMs/ Tier 1 and the OSATs. IDMs and Tier 1 are the main suppliers of the car OEMs for integrated systems, and OSATs specialize in the initial packaging and testing. Automotive packaging was mostly done in-house by IDMs and Tier 1, as it allows an easier integration and a faster development of systems. As ever more electronics are implemented in cars, more and more outsourcing goes to OSATs. In the past, OSATs supplied relatively little of the electronic advanced packaging for the automotive market, while today OSATs represent 38% of the total revenue for advanced packaging for cars and this proportion might keep growing. This change has been made possible due to the increasing quantity of devices, diversification of components, the increased complexity of the packaging and there liability of specific manufacturers. Moreover, some devices come from the consumer market that OSATs already supply. Currently, Amkor and ASE represent more than 80% of the automotive advanced packaging for automotive supplied by OSATs. In 2015, Amkor acquired J-Devices, one of the larger Japanese OSATs. Thanks to this acquisition and new brand positioning focused on the automotive market, Amkor is now the top OSAT in automotive packaging with more than 50% of the market, followed by ASE and STATS ChipPAC.
