Polyimide materials are polymer materials which are lightweight, flexible, and resistant to chemical and heat. Colourless polyimide films are flexible, versatile and colourless suitable for demanding applications. Application potential in medical industry for drug delivery systems through transparent tubes will favour industry growth. Moreover, shifting trends towards renewables sources of energy has led to rise in demand for photovoltaic cells thus driving product demand.
Colourless polyimide films are optically transparent, high chemical resistance and thermos mechanical properties. These properties make it suitable for flexible printed circuit board, lighting equipment and flexible display. Aromatic polyamides change its colour and tend to disintegrate at high fabricating temperature, thus promoting demand for colourless polyimide films to attain consistency and efficiency. High thermal stability and optical transparency along with tensile strength properties which are used in modern electronic devices mainly for flexible displays and to cover windows for flexible AMOLED devices which is likely to have positive impact on product demand.
The report analyses the global colourless polyimide films market based on application end user and geography
Various applications studied are segmented into flexible solar cells, flexible displays, lighting equipment, and flexible printed circuit. Growing demand for flexible displays owing to their structural characteristic of being able to open and fold multiple times colourless polyimide films are widely used as a replacement of glass to attain flexibility, thus promoting market size of the product. CPI is also used in plastic covers which are durable and mass produced. Shifting trends towards foldable smartphones, note books and smart electronic devices have led to rise in demand for CPI films.
Furthermore, the major end users considered in the study are electronic, medical and solar. Colourless polyimide films find application in photovoltaic cells owing to high temperature resistance, flexibility and toughness which can replace glass in solar application. These films are light weight, thinner and are easier to handle along with easy to install which makes it suitable for building integrated photovoltaics application. It will replace heavy fragile glass modules which needs to be transported through large trucks and cranes to the roofs, where these films are light weight and easier to handle. These factors will stimulate product demand.
