FMI’ Analyst view: ESD Packaging: The Growing use of Electrostatic Discharge Packaging is likely to surpass 5 Billion in 2033

The electrostatic discharge (ESD) packaging market is expected to increase from US$ 2.0 billion in 2023 to US$ 3.3 billion in 2033 and is likely to capture a 5.1% CAGR during the forecast period.

Electrostatic discharge packaging (ESD) is made of plastic. It aids in the reduction of static electricity as well as the protection of electro-sensitive equipment or products that contain flammable gases or liquids from a range of sources such as other devices, friction, and even the weather. The electronic equipment is packaged inside a robust black polyethylene box surrounded by poly foam. ESD packaging is designed to keep static electricity at bay, maintaining the integrity of the contents within.

ESD packaging is also a good concept in electronics as integrated circuits are made of semiconductor materials like silicon and insulating materials that might be damaged by high voltages. To avoid this issue, integrated circuit producers and users must take precautions like using appropriate packaging materials and printing techniques.

The rising defence and military, healthcare, industrial, automotive, and aerospace industries for a variety of operational uses are driving market expansion. Furthermore, increased investments in biodegradable electrostatic discharge packages by several organizations in the country are expected to provide the profitable potential for market expansion throughout the projection period.

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) trays market expansion is being driven by product innovations and demand in biodegradable packaging and other end-use sectors. Furthermore, increasing investments in recyclable electrostatic discharge trays by numerous product producers offer the market with new potential prospects.
