Global Thermally Conductive Plastics Market (2022 to 2027)


DUBLIN, August 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The “Thermal Conductive Plastics Market by Type (Polyamide, PBT, Polycarbonate, PPS, PEI, Polysulfones), End-Use (Electrical & Electronics, Automotive, Industrial, Aerospace, Healthcare, Telecom) and Region – Forecast to 2027′ report has been added to from offer.

The global thermally conductive plastics market size is expected to grow from $121 million in 2021 to reach $298 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 16.2% between 2022 and 2027.

Rising demand for heat dissipation materials in LED lighting, growing adoption of electric vehicles, and miniaturization of electronic components are key factors for the growth of the thermally conductive plastics market. The deployment of telecommunications infrastructure and 5G communication devices will provide significant growth opportunities for manufacturers of thermally conductive plastics. However, the availability of conventional materials and the low thermal conductivity of plastics are expected to limit the market growth.

In terms of value, PEI is the third fastest growing type of thermally conductive plastic over the forecast period.

PEI, in combination with thermally conductive fillers, is a cost effective solution due to the reduced number of manufacturing steps and joints. Due to its creep resistance, low smoke emission and flame resistance, the demand for PEI as a thermally conductive plastic has increased significantly. PEI has applications in jet engine components, medical devices, and electrical and electronic insulators due to its extremely low smoke generation.

In terms of value, healthcare is estimated to be the second fastest growing segment in the thermally conductive plastics market, by end-use industry, over the forecast period.

Developments in the surgical robot industry for critical surgeries such as neurosurgery and spine surgery are expected to increase the demand for thermally conductive plastics in medical equipment. Thermally conductive plastics offer various advantages over conventional materials, such as shielding against electrostatic discharge (ESD) and radio frequency interference (RFI), which protect against electronic malfunctions due to electromagnetic waves. Housing critical components in medical equipment and heat sinks are some applications of thermally conductive plastics in the healthcare industry.

Europe The region accounted for the third largest share of the thermally conductive plastics market by value.

The presence of diverse end-use industries, manufacturers, compounders, distributors, and technical service providers for polymer testing and analysis presents growth opportunities for the market. Europe is considered an automotive hub, due to the presence of established car manufacturers, such as Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler. The development of materials science, innovation and high R&D investments for automotive, industrial automation, energy, electronic lighting and medical devices will drive the European thermal conductive plastics market.

Base polymers including PBT, PA, PPS and PC are the most common types of thermally conductive plastics used in Europe. Some of the European manufacturers in the thermally conductive plastics market are BASF, DSM, Covestro AG, Ensinger, LANXESS, Lehmann&Voss&Co., LATI Industria Termoplastici SpA and WITCOM Engineering Plastics BV.
