  • Report Description
  • Summary

Polyimide films are one of the most commonly used flexible and robust substrates for flexible electronic devices due to their excellent thermal, chemical, mechanical, and electrical properties. However, such films feature an inert and highly hydrophobic surface that inhibits the deposition of functional materials with water-based fluids (solutions, suspensions, inkjet inks, etc.), which raise the need for their surface modification to reduce their inherent surface inertness and/or hydrophobicity in order to allow for the fabrication of electronic devices on the substrates.

  • Polyimide plays an important role in aerospace and microelectronics due to its attractive dielectric properties, mechanical strength, excellent thermal stability, and chemical properties.
  • Polyimide film is ideal for insulating circuit boards, high-temperature powder coating and transformer manufacturing due to the desirable properties of high temperature resistance and good dimensional stability.
  • Increasing adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles is likely to act as an opportunity in the future.

Polyimide Films Market Outlook

The polyimide films market is driven by various factor such as increased demand from the electronics industry and strong demand from the growing automotive industry. However, the high industrial cost to produce polyimide films is the major factor hampering the polyimide films market growth.
