This can be attributed to its high performance and durability characteristics. In terms of application, touch screens are expected to account for a major share of the global optically clear adhesive market during the forecast period.

Global Optically Clear Adhesive Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Optically clear adhesive is a type of adhesive that does not interfere with the passage of light. This makes it ideal for use in applications where optical clarity is important, such as in optical displays and lenses.

Resistance Type:

Resistance type is a property of polymers that controls the degree of adhesion and permanent deformation when subjected to an applied stress. The resistance to adhesive growth factor in optically clear adhesive (OCCA) market is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. Optically Clear Adhesives (OCAs) are used for producing high performance products with low heat, low water and light transmission properties.

Capacitance Type:

Capacitance is the measure of charge holding ability of a capacitor. It is represented in farads (F) and depends on the dielectric constant, construction material, and size. The most commonly used capacitors are electrolytic; however, ceramic or film capacitors are also used in some applications.

Application Insights:

The other application segment includes electronics, automotive, construction and others. The optically clear adhesive used in the automotive industry is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its increasing use in bonding various components such as touch screen panels and glass together. Optically clear adhesives are also widely used in electronic applications including lamination of LCD displays, backlighting equipment for LED displays and flexible printed circuit boards (FPCBs).

Touch screen is estimated to be the fastest-growing application segment due to rising demand from end-use industries such as consumer electronics and mobile phones. In addition, growing demand for capacitive touch devices across Asia Pacific coupled with high product consumption is projected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global optically clear adhesive market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a share of more than 30% in 2016 owing to high product demand from various industries, such as electronics, automotive, medical & healthcare and others. In addition, increasing population coupled with rising disposable income levels is anticipated to drive demand for consumer electronics products such as smartphones and tablets in this region. This has led to an increase in product usage across touchscreens of mobile phones and other electronic devices.

The Asia Pacific market was followed by Europe which accounted for a share of more than 20%in 2016 owing to growing adoption across several applications including tape used primarily for packaging purposes along with other household applications such as labeling tapes used during transportation of goods etc., among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for optically clear adhesives from the electronics and automotive industries due to their superior optical clarity, dimensional stability, and thermal resistance.
  • Growing demand for optically clear adhesives in medical applications due to their biocompatibility and non-toxicity.
  • Rising demand for optically clear adhesives in the packaging industry as they provide a tamper-proof seal that is difficult to penetrate without leaving visible evidence of tampering.
  • Increasing use of optically clear adhesives in solar energy applications as they help improve light transmission and absorption rates while reducing heat loss.
