Opportunity: Preference for transparent polyimide films for flexible display and optoelectronics:
Conventional polymer films such as PET possess excellent optical transparency. However, these films face challenges in advanced optoelectronic engineering, mainly due to their limited service temperature. Hence, currently, transparent polyimide films and tapes are preferred over conventional polymers. In recent years, there has been significant development in flexible active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) displays, replacing hard glass with flexible substrates and thin films such as transparent polyimide films to make displays thinner, lighter, and less fragmented. Currently, major phone manufacturers are in the phase of developing prototypes of flexible smartphones, such as Royole Corporation’s FlexPai, Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, Huawei’s Mate X, Lenovo’s Cplus, and Apple with a patent of its own. The fabrication of solar cells using colorless polyimide films provides practical advantages, such as weight reduction, cost savings, and a simplified manufacturing process. Optical polymer substrates used in solar cells need to be transparent and should have the ability to withstand processing temperatures of over 300°C. The properties of transparent polyimide films and tapes make it possible to produce high-efficiency solar cells.
Electronics is projected to be the fastest-growing end-use industry segment of the polyamide films market.
Based on end-use industry, the electronics segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. Polyimide films and tapes provide excellent electrical insulation properties under harsh conditions, such as high-temperature ranges and exposure to aggressive chemicals. They are increasingly being used by component manufacturers and equipment designers due to their design flexibility. As a result, the electronics industry is the largest consumer of polyimide films and tapes globally.
