Global Colorless Polyimide Films: Segments

Electronics industry segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-31

The global colorless polyimide films market may be classified into electronics industry, solar energy, medical, and other end-use industries. Polyimides are colorless and have outstanding thermo-mechanical properties, as well as great chemical resistance and optical transparency. These qualities make electronics like flexible substrates, printed circuit boards, & lighting equipment possible. Temperatures can reach 300°C during the fabrication of electronic components and devices, and typical aromatic polyimides likely to dissolve or change color at such high temperatures. As a result, as production processes improve, the demand for colorless polyimide film from the electronics end-use industry is likely to rise.

Flexible Display segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2021-31

The market is divided into flexible display, flexible solar cell, flexible printed circuit board, lighting equipment, optical fibers, and others, depending on the application. Flexible displays have the biggest market share among these, owing to increased development due to technical understanding and production capabilities. With the optical polymers film defined as colorless polyimide, the experts have aimed at developing innovative materials & are at the forefront of making flexible displays a reality. Recently, displays have been classified according to their flexibility: flat displays are made using plastic & non-glass backplanes for ruggedness and lightweight.

Market Dynamics

Drivers

Increased supply from flexible display applications

Flat screens are made out of plastic or some other non-glass back plane for lightness or ruggedness; shaped displays are twisted once, such as a curved automotive dashboard, but cannot be flexed again; and flexible display, on the other hand, can be bent or flexed but not rolled. Flexible displays do have promising future, but current technical understanding and production skills are limiting their progress. Researchers have been working on developing innovative materials, and the optical polymer film known as colorless polyimide is at the vanguard of making flexible display a reality.

Rising demand for materials that are lightweight

Colorless polyimide films has benefited from rapid advancements in aerospace engineering as well as the expansion of the electronics sector. The global colorless polyimide films market is growing due to rising demand for materials that are lightweight, robust, and trustworthy. Another application where colorless polyimide sheets can be employed is in photovoltaic cells. Glass covering plates are used to protect the fragile electronics within solar cells.

Restraint

Low supply of monomers to synthesis and high production costs

Colorless polyimide market films have been difficult to grow, owing to high production costs and a scarcity of commercially available monomers for synthesis. As a result, when compared to regular polyimide films or other glass-like materials, the commercial cost of purchasing these films increases dramatically. The heavy price is mostly due to the monomer utilized in synthesis, and it acts as a limitation on the market's growth.
