A contact probe is a testing instrument that can be fit into an assembly line of the electronic devices manufacturing industries for testing semiconductors, electronics, and electrical devices. The equipment helps to reduce the labor cost, time, and manual efforts involved in the semiconductor manufacturing process by ensuring the high quality of the devices.

Which Region is expected to Boost the Growth of the Contact Probe Market?

The North American region is projected to drive the global market growth during the forecast period. In recent years, there has been a significant demand for newer and faster electronic products due to the rapid pace of innovation, the advancement of technology, and R&D activities in the electronics industry. There is a significant increase in the number of manufacturing plants and development centers in North America, primarily due to the focus on developing high-end products. The ongoing transition to 5G and adoption of emerging technologies such as IoT is expected to boost the growth of the North American contact probe market.

Germany, one of the leading manufacturing bases for the automotive industry, is home to manufacturers from different segments, such as equipment manufacturers, material and component suppliers, engine producers, and whole system integrators. Contact probes are also in demand in other major countries, such as France and UK, due to growing requirements from specialized industries such as aerospace components. The expanding demand for contact probes from various industries will drive the growth of the European contact probe market.

Countries such as China, India, and South Korea are estimated to grow faster as they are considered a hub of the manufacturing industry based on low manufacturing costs and the presence of huge low-cost labor. Asia-Pacific has the world's largest electronics production base. Electronic products, such as smartphones, TVs, wires, cables, portable computing devices, gaming systems, and other personal electronic devices, are produced in the region. It serves domestic demand for electronics and exports electronic production to other countries. The expansion of the consumer electronics industry will be the major factor in driving the growth of the Asia-Pacific contact probe market.

Growing demand for consumer electronic products is a major driver for the global contact probe market:

Contact probes are used in the electronic industry for testing and effective connection abilities. Security electronic products, portable personal devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, medical electronics and wearable electronics are some common products tested using contact probes. The growing demand for consumer electronic products is a key driver for the global market during the forecast period.

Design and technical limitations are expected to restrain the global contact probe market:

During the forecast period, design and technical limitations are expected to prevent the growth of the global contact probe market. The applications for contact probes have become more demanding and intricate in recent years; however, the basic design of contact probes hasn't changed to cater to the growing demands of applications. The technical limitations hinder the use of contact probes for various upcoming applications.    

The development of new tech products is expected to generate new opportunities for the global contact probe market:

Because of the growth of 5G communication, electric vehicles, and industry 4.0, miniaturized and chipped connectors are in great demand, which is important for connectivity purposes. Contact probes are essential for the testing of miniaturized and chipped connectors. Therefore new tech developments present major opportunities for the global contact probe market.

The lack of a skilled workforce is expected to present challenges for the global contact probe market:

Installing and operating contact probes requires a skilled workforce possessing advanced technical skills and education. There is an increasing shortage of qualified and experienced personnel required to carry out complex operations for contact probes according to the demands of various applications. It presents a major challenge to the growth of the global market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Covid-19 pandemic has adversely affected the market of contact probe due to supply chain disruption, difficulty in raw material procurement, availability of human resources, lockdown in various countries, as well as an adverse effect and low demand in end-user industries such as semiconductor, PCB industry, smartphone industry, consumer electronics and industrial sector. Though the full impact of COVID-19 is still unpredictable, the impact throughout the electronics value chain, from materials to final products, is expressing itself in terms of shortage of product availability, high pricing, inflation and raw material procurement disturbance. The pandemic is not expected to impact the long-term growth of the global contact probe market.

  1. Infrared: Infrared probes are touch triggered, requiring a single touch to perform any action. When the stylus comes close to a workpiece surface, it deflects and sends an infrared trigger signal to the receiver. Interference-free signal transmission between the probe and receiver is vital for process-reliable measuring on machine tools.
  2. Radio: The radio contact probe has made it possible to check that the profile of a newly machined part is correct and detect any surface defects directly in the machine environment by simply performing profile and surface contact scans on the newly worked parts. The system transmits the data to a receiving device using a radio transmission system. The data are collected, analyzed and displayed by software over the monitor screen.
  3. Hard Wired: Hard-wired probe offers the user to detect the position of the machine automatically and can achieve part positioning and accurate part measurement coupled with ensuring robustness and reliability even in harshest working environments.

Competitive Analysis:

The global contact probe market is highly competitive, with the presence of several international and local players. Companies are entering into collaborations, acquisitions, mergers and licensing to increase their market penetration.
