Pune, India, October, 2018 /press release/- Market Research Future Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on Polyimide Film Market Research Report.
The global polyimide film is estimated to register 25 % CAGR during the forecast period (2017-2023) owing to the growing demand from the automobile sector, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Polyimide films are used in several end-user industries like aerospace, automobile, electrical & electronics, and healthcare. Polyimide possess properties such as thermal stability, high tensile strength, flexibility, and lightweight, which makes them ideal for mobile phones, laptops, cam recorders, and other display devices. The lightweight and flexible nature make them ideal for use in the electronic industry such as digital semiconductors, cables, chips, and magnetic wires.
Drivers and Constraints Impacting the Market
The rapid urbanization and industrialization have triggered the demand for various end-use, which is anticipated to stimulate the global polyimide film market during the forecast period. With the growing demand for polyimide films from the automobile sector coupled with increased government investment in the development of the retail sector is likely to contribute to the growth of the market globally. High demand from the electronics industry is presumed to drive the polyimide market to a great extent. Polyimide films are extensively used in the electronics sector for applications such as recording devices, electrical wires, and cables.
On the flip side, high cost is incurred in processing of the polyimide films as these films are produced through film casting techniques and require high temperature. Also, poor resistance of polyimide films to hydrolysis makes the application of polyimide films complex in humid weather, which further restrains the market growth during the assessment period.
