·8-min read

Dublin, Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Polyimide Films and Tapes Market by Application (Flexible Printed Circuits, Specialty Fabricated Products, Pressure-Sensitive Tapes, Motors/Generators, Wires & Cables), End-Use Industry (Electronics, Automotive), and Region - Forecast to 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The polyimide films and tapes market is estimated to be USD 1.6 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 2.4 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 8.5% from 2021 to 2026.

Increased demand from the electronics, automotive, aerospace, and medical industries is one of the key factors driving the growth of this market. The high cost of polyimide films and tapes acts as a key restraint to market growth.

Flexible printed circuits is the fastest-growing application segment of the polyimide films and tapes market

By application, the flexible printed circuits segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, mainly due to the growing demand in mobile devices, computers, and automobile & military electronics.

The use of polyimide films and tapes in flexible printed circuits helps in providing additional thickness, which is required by the end-use industries such as electronics and automotive.

Electronics is the largest end-use industry segment of the polyimide films and tapes market

By end-use industry, the electronics segment accounted for the largest share of the polyimide films and tapes market in 2020. Polyimide films have good mechanical and electrical properties in comparison to other thermoplastic films and are, hence, widely used in several applications in the electronics industry.

For instance, polyimide films are used as a base material for ?exible printed wiring assembly, due to their excellent mechanical and thermal stability and low dielectric constant.

Asia Pacific is projected to lead the polyimide films market during the forecast period

By region, Asia Pacific is anticipated to lead the polyimide films market during the forecast period. The market growth in this region is mainly attributed to rising disposable incomes and growing demand for consumer electronics products. The Asia Pacific market is also expected to witness the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026 owing to the high demand for polyimide films and tapes from countries such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea.
