Reflective polarizing films are key optical elements to control polarization, thus transmitting a desired polarization state while reflecting. They either use Brewsters angle, wire grid, or interference effects. Brewsters angle is the angle at which, based on the Fresnel equations, only s-polarized light is reflected. As the p-polarized light is not reflected, while the s-polarized light is partially reflected, the light which is transmitted is improved in p-polarization.
The global reflective polarizing films market is expected to witness significant growth due high use of these films especially in LCD displays. The emergence of reflective polarizing films, especially in emerging economies, fuels the market growth. Moreover, technological advancements and increase in R&D activities accelerate the growth of the market. Furthermore, the significant reflective properties offered by reflective polarizing films is a key factor that accelerates the growth of the market. However, introduction of cheaper substitutes is a major factor anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
The global reflective polarizing films market is segmented on the basis of type, layer, and geography. By type, the market is classified high contrast, low contrast, and others. Based on layer, it is categorized into single layer and multilayer. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
