Polyimide Coating Market Research, 2031

The global polyimide coating market size was valued at $1.2 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2022 to 2031.

As a specialized engineering material, polyimide has found widespread application in aviation, aerospace, microelectronics, nanoscale, liquid crystal, separation membrane, laser, and other industries. Polyimide material is distinguished by its strong temperature resistance, mechanical and chemical stability, high glass transition temperature, optical transparency, and low dielectric constant. All of polyimide's attributes can vary based on its chemical structure and macromolecular circumstances, such as molecular weight (MW), crystallinity, and intermolecular forces. Polyimide is excellent for coating applications because it adheres to several substrates, including metals, polymers, carbon, and silica-based materials.

Polyimide Coating Market

Polyimide is a class of high-performance polymers with good dielectric properties and high thermal stability at both high and low temperatures. The increase in use of polyimide coatings in end-use sectors such as electronics is anticipated to propel market expansion.

Compact electronic gadgets, such as pocket computers, watches, circuit boards, and digital cameras, utilize polyimide coatings. In the electronics industry, polyimide coatings are in high demand due to their thermal stability, outstanding mechanical and electrical capabilities, and chemical resistance.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL POLYIMIDE COATINGS MARKET

COVID-19 has spread across the globe and effected almost all aspects of life. According to an article published by the Economic Times, the exports of electronic products such as wires and cables and semiconductors have decreased as a result of supply chain problems. In addition, a number of electronic companies have either ceased operations or reduced their employees due to the potential of infection. In addition, more than one hundred nations have sealed their international borders for transportation and halted non-essential trade activities, which has contributed to a decline in the demand for polyimide coatings in a number of end-use industries.

Nevertheless, the polyimide coatings business is anticipated to recover fast in the aftermath of COVID-19 due to its greater reliance on the electronics industry. In addition, sales of electronic devices such as wires and cables, televisions, and laptops have surged where polyimide coatings are extensively employed for insulating purposes. It is anticipated that this will improve the performance of the polyimide coatings market after COVID-19.
