Industrial and Medical
The industrial and medical segment is comprised of a diverse field of markets including power, traction, processing industries, manufacturing equipment, test and measurement, environmental controls, medical imaging, and personal electronics.
The industrial and medical industry consists of two major sectors, the medical electronic systems and the industrial systems and controls. The industries most representative products are industrial RFID readers, distributed on-grid solar power systems and gasoline stations.
The industry is mainly driven by the search for energy alternatives and new power management solutions as well of the increased capability of wireless communication. Another driver is the aging population with greater spending power and the ability to spend more on medical care.
The market size is estimated to $165Bn in 2008 with $60Bn in medical systems and $105Bn in industrial electronics and controls. Growing at a projected average annual rate of 4% through to 2011 ($190Bn), these markets are quite challenging because of their diversity and technical breadth.
To operate at the leading edge of technology, Atotech's worldwide OEM teams stay in constant and close contact with the market leaders on the PCB, EMS and OEM level for industrial and medical electronics to fulfill their present and future needs and align Atotech's research and development program accordingly.
