Polyimide Film Market, By Application (Flexible Printed Circuit, Specialty Fabricated Product, Wires

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1945666


The Polyimide Film Market has been witnessing strong growth owing to increasing demand from various sectors such as electronics, automotive, and medical in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including flexible printed circuit, specialty fabricated aerospace, labeling, medical, mining, and drilling is expected to drive the growth of the market.

Polyimide is a dielectric material with good chemical resistance and favorable mechanical properties which include lightweight, impact and shatter-resistant qualities, temperature resistance, high service temperature, ductility, and toughness in thin sections. Due to these properties, they are widely used in the electronics industry for cables, chips, digital semiconductors, and magnetic wires.

Segment Insights

The polyimide film market is segmented on the basis of application and end users. On the basis of application, it is segregated into a flexible printed circuit, specialty fabricated product, wires and cable, motor/generator. The polyimide films are majorly used in the flexible printed circuit.  These polyimide films are usually used as an insulating material in flexible printed circuits because they help in reducing the size of electronic devices and also improve their functionality. Flexible printing circuits are vastly used in laptops, mobile phones, jet cartridges, scanners, printers, recorders, and avionics systems among others.

By end user, polyimide film market is segmented into electronics, automotive, aerospace, labeling, medical, mining, and drilling.  The polyimide films are widely used in electronics as they provide excellent electrical insulation properties under harsh conditions.
