The substrate-like PCB market is expected to grow from USD 1.1 billion in 2018 to USD 2.6 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.6% during the forecast period.

Substrate-like PCB (SLP) is a term that describes the transition of a PCB-board into a product with package substrate-like features. SLP requires line width/line spacing up to 30/30 m, which allows to reduce the size of the mainboard and make space for other components such as a bigger battery in the case of smartphones. As the semiconductor industry trends are affecting the semiconductor package and package-to-board interconnect level, performance-driven applications such as PCs and smartphones are giving way to functional applications that are plotting the semiconductor industry's future course.

The high adoption of SLPS by leading OEMs, surge in demand for consumer electronics and wearable devices, and impactful benefits of SLPS are the factors driving the growth of the substrate-like PCB market. However, the higher setup cost associated with SLP is the major factor that restrains the growth of the substrate-like PCB market. Increasing use of advanced printed circuit boards in high-end technology-based products, rising adoption of SLP by smartphone players owing to transition from 4G to 5G technology, growing use of mSAP and SAP processes in PCB manufacturing is expected to provide growth opportunities to the substrate-like PCB market players during the forecast period. Moreover, the increasing complexity of printed circuit boards pose challenges to the substrate-like PCB market.

The line/space of 25/25 & 30/30 m is largely required in consumer electronics applications. Smartphone manufacturers such Apple and Samsung have adopted SLPs with 25/25 and 30/30 m line/space in their smartphones. SLPs find their applications in computing and communications, automotive, and medical devices as well. Due to the thinner and smaller area, it can leave more space for other components. Most of the consumer electronic devices, such as smartphones and smart bands, are battery operated and require more space.
