From the early days of valves to the creation of the transistor and later the integrated circuit, much of the progress made by the electronics industry towards ever-greater miniaturization has only been made possible due to the availability of different polymeric materials.The development of numerous novel plastics expressly for use in electrical and electronic device applications has led to the ongoing growth of both the electronics and plastics sectors.

Electronics components have seen a large drop in real cost performance over time. This decline can be partially attributable to the availability and performance of novel polymeric materials. A specific example is the development of the personal computer, where
advancements in polymer-based photoresists and plastic encapsulation techniques have made it possible to mass produce high-density memories and microprocessors at a price that makes devices more potent than mainframe computers of thirty years ago available for barely more than the cost of a toy. The creation of electrical and electronic equipment today uses a variety of plastic materials extensively, from insulator moldings for the largest bushings and transformers to alpha particle barriers on memory devices. Plastics, or more precisely polymers, are used in a variety of applications including equipment casings, protective coatings, wire and cable insulators, printed circuit board components,
die-to-attach adhesives, and packaging for individual microcircuits.

The electronics sector is a significant user of high-performance thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers.Almost all engineering thermoplastics (ETPs) are used in some form of electronics component, but standard nylons (polyamides) and thermoplastic polyesters (typically polybutylene terephthalate) are by far the two most common polymer families.

This is particularly true among connectors, which make up the majority of the market for electronic components. Even as the average size of each component used continues to shrink and wall thicknesses can be reduced thanks to advancements in polymer processability and end-use performance, the consumption of engineering thermoplastics in this industry is rising as the use of electronic devices permeates more areas of our working and leisure lives.

ETPs are frequently viewed as commodities by specifiers, particularly in certain types of connectors, and the choice of material is likely influenced by cost as much as by performance.This is much less of an issue in higher-performance applications, but even in these markets, suppliers of high-temperature nylons (a class that includes nylons 46, 4T and polyphthalamides) compete with those of polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), liquid crystal polymers (LCPs), and other polymer types.

LCPs are a specific type of thermoplastic polyester. Different varieties of polyaryletherketone, the most prevalent of which is polyetheretherketone, are still further up the performance ladder.

In the market for electronic components, polyimides occupy a certain niche.They are mostly utilized in film form for flexible electronics and come in thermoset and thermoplastic varieties.

When thermal stability is not a concern, they encounter some competition from films made of various forms of polyester (polyethylene terephthalate and, to a lesser extent, polyethylene naphthalate). This particular submarket is now expanding quickly.
