SMT equipment is required to place components such as resistors and
capacitors onto a base, which is usually a printed circuit board (PCB).
The components placed on the PCB are known as surface mount devices
(SMD). Initially, there were two types of SMT equipment used, which
includes chip shooters and precision placement machines.
Competitive vendor landscape
There is an intense competition that exists in the global SMT equipment
market because there is low product differentiation. Although there are
several regional and local manufacturers, the global SMT equipment
market is consolidated due to the presence of top vendors such as FUJI
MACHINE, JUKI, Mycronic, Nordson, and Panasonic.
“The market is characterized by rapid technological changes, which
further increases the competition amongst vendors. For example, the
increasing demand for consumer goods will require several PCBs to be
integrated into the devices. This will compel EMS firms to purchase
several SMT equipment to meet the increasing demand for electronic
components,” says Raghu Raj Singh, a lead semiconductor
equipment research analyst from Technavio.
Since there is barely any product differentiation, key vendors compete
to gain a higher market share. A major factor that Technavio has
considered is the goodwill that exists between vendors and customers.
Since the equipment is highly expensive, goodwill between vendors and
customers plays an important role.
