In total, the consumer electronics sector brought in around USD 987 billion in revenue in 2022. This propelled opportunities for the mold interconnect device market.

Increasing Advancements in Automotive Industry across the Globe to Boost Market Growth

The automotive sector heavily relies on MIDs for various applications such as automotive sensors, lighting, and control systems. As per estimates, it is anticipated that the global automotive sensor industry will surpass USD 55 billion by 2025. With the rise of electric vehicles (EVs), autonomous driving technology, and the need for more compact and lightweight components, MIDs are becoming increasingly indispensable in this sector. As electronic devices continue to shrink in size while increasing in functionality, there’s a growing demand for compact, MIDs that enable the integration of multiple functionalities into smaller spaces, aligning with the miniaturization trend. The healthcare industry leverages MIDs for various applications, including wearable medical devices, monitoring systems, and implantable devices. The need for smaller, more reliable, and customized solutions in the medical field fuels the growth of MID. For instance, Pacemaker makers, including Boston Scientific and Medtronic, were among the first in the medical field to adopt C-MOS technology to integrate digital and analog signals into a single-chip device. This enhanced the device's analysis and control capabilities while decreasing its size and weight. Soon, chip design methods akin to those employed in the creation of compact, lightweight, and potent consumer and military goods were applied to the design of digital medical devices, ranging from defibrillators to stethoscopes.
