According to the new market research report on "Molded Interconnect Device (MID) Market by Process (LDS, 2-Shot Molding, Film Techniques), Product (Antennae & Connectivity Modules, Connectors & Switches, Sensors, Lighting), Industry, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023", the MID market is expected to reach USD 1,798.3 million by 2023 from USD 894.1 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 15.0% from 2018 to 2023. Major factors driving the growth of the MID market are the increasing use of MID in medical devices, rising demand for miniaturization in the consumer electronics industry, and growing need to reduce e-waste.
Laser direct structuring (LDS) to hold major share of MID market throughout the forecast period
LDS equipment is used to manufacture MIDs. LDS consists of various steps, such as injection molding, laser activation, metallization, and assembly. LPKF is the sole manufacturer of LDS equipment. LDS allows to eliminate components in electronic devices, such as antennae in smartphones, thus reducing assembly time and device production cost. Increasing demand for integrating more electronic circuits into smaller spaces is fueling the growth of LDS in the MID market. Moreover, the introduction of 5G mobile communications technology will lead to the rise in demand for smartphone antennae, which in turn will increase demand for LDS equipment.

MID market for sensors to grow at high CAGR during forecast period
MIDs are used in sensors for a variety of industrial and automotive applications. Industrial applications include temperature sensors, motion sensors, pressure sensors, and flow sensors, among others. In automotive, MID-based sensors are used in adaptive cruise control system, central locking, and climate control applications. MID miniaturizes devices, which helps reduce the weight of the overall sensor system and increases functionality, resulting in low-cost end-use devices.
Automotive to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period
MIDs have a thriving market in the automotive industry. This is largely due to the wide-scale adoption of MID in various automotive applications, such as steering wheel hubs, brake sensors, position sensors, and lighting. In automotive, MID reduces the wiring and combines the connector and housing in 1 piece, and through selective plating, it incorporates all the required circuitry. Such benefits of MIDs encourage this industry to adopt MID technology, thereby fueling the MID market growth.
