Report Scope

This report addresses the global market for thermal management products for microchips during the forecast period through 2022. Unlike SMC024K, The Market for Thermal Management Technologies, which covers the entire semiconductor market based on similar product types and various end-user application industries, the scope of this report covers cooling solutions for microprocessors chips ("microchips"); selection of suitable thermal management materials; and development of advanced cooling solutions based on several heat-transfer technologies (fans and blowers, heat sinks, heat pipes, cold plates).

Significant advancements in the electronic industry have led to huge demands for smarter products with high power densities. In any such product, many components are attached to an electronic circuit board and many of these components generate heat during any operation. A microprocessor chip (microchip) is the major source of heat generation in an electronic product; though it consumes power in milliwatts, the power density is very high. When the size of the microchip decreases, its speed increases simultaneously with the heat generation. When that occurs, the adjacent components of a circuit board are severely affected by the high temperature. This necessitates the call for advanced heat-dissipation solutions for microchips. In addition, power electronics, medical devices, and various high-heat applications are designed in compressed sizes and require enhanced thermal technologies to absorb the heat penetration.

This report also highlights the major players in each of the regional markets for thermal management in microchips. It explains the major market drivers of the global thermal management industry, the current trends within the industry, and the regional market dynamics for global thermal management products used in microchips. The report also provides detailed information about the suppliers involved, along with complete profiles of the major global vendors in the thermal management industry for microchips and data on the market shares of the major players in each region.
