Electronic Potting and Encapsulating: A Solid Substance to Prevent Gaseous Phenomenon from Damaging Electronics Components

Potting is a technique of filling a high-voltage electronic assembly with a solid substance to prevent gaseous phenomenon from damaging the assembly. Electronic components are especially potted with liquid compounds to ensure correct electric insulation for reliable operations, as it forms a permanent joint. As potting compounds are usually made of polyurethane, they can form extremely hard resins and provide high thermal stability for automobile electronic systems. Certain applications, such as minimal waste, fast setting time, and no requisite for mixing, spur the demand for the product in an effective way. In the electronics segment, epoxy resins are the fastest growing application category due to their dielectric characteristics. As per Business Research Insights, the market for electronic potting and encapsulating is expected to reach a valuation of USD 3,075 million by 2026 at 9.3% CAGR during the forecast period.
