The polyimide film market is expected to grow, in terms of volume, during the forecast period (2017-2023) due to highly functional film properties such as superior cold and heat resistance. Polyimide is a polymer with an imide group. The formation of polyimide film includes the addition of diamines and dianhydrides to form polyamic acid, and then, they are reacted into polyimide after high temperature, imidization and dehydration. Apart from being lightweight, polyimide film provide thermal, physical, electrical and chemical properties over a wide temperature range and are being incorporated in electronic and integrated circuit industries, due to their performance. Flexible printed circuit boards are in major demand and are also used in insulation in train motors and airplane wiring.
One of the major reasons for the market growth of polyimide film is the increasing demand for these types of films for electronic applications such as thin panel televisions, including LCD and plasma televisions and are expanding the market for mobile devices including mobile phones and digital market. The polyimide film market can be segmented on the basis of type, application, end-user, and geography. The polyimide film market can be classified as pyromellitic polyimide film and bi phenyl polyimide film. On the basis of application, polyimide film is classified as flexible printed circuits, specialty fabricated products, pressure sensitive tape, wire, cable and motor/generator. The polyimide film, on the basis of end use industry, are segmented into electrical/electronic, aerospace, automotive, industrial, labelling, and others. The polyimide layers have good mechanical elongation and tensile strength. These polyimide layers improvise the adhesion between two or more polyimide layers or between polyimide layer and deposited metal layer. The diminished interaction between the gold film and the polyimide film, coupled with high temperature stability of the polyimide film, results in a system that provides reliable insulation when subjected to various types of environmental stresses.
The U.S., China and Japan are the major countries contributing to the polyimide film market and contribute to a major portion of the global polyimide film market. North America, South America, Middle East and Africa are the regions following the growing trend in polyimide film market.
The key players operating in the global polyimide film market include Du Pont, Kaneka Corporation, SKC Kolon, Saint Gobain and Toray industries. Additionally, other players are Nitto Denko Corporation, and Dunmore Corporation.
