Global Polyimide (PI) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A polyimide is a type of polymer consisting of repeating imide monomer units. It has a high resistance to heat and chemical attack, making it useful as an insulation material and in manufacturing processes that require exposure to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures.


Plastic is a generic term for man-made material that can be made from two basic elements, namely polymer and mineral. The most common types of plastic are polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and nylon 6,6. There are many different varieties of plastics available in the market varying in terms of their applications & characteristics.


Film is a thin layer of material made up of organic compounds. It is mainly used in the production of polyimide (PI) which has wide usage in electronic and electrical applications. PI film market can be segmented on the basis of application into electronics, aerospace & defense, automotive, industrial and others such as medical devices and consumer goods packaging among others.

Application Insights:

The aerospace industry was the largest application segment in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growing aviation sector across the globe is fueling demand for polyimide-based materials, thus propelling growth. In addition, increasing use of composites in aircraft body structures is further expected to drive demand over the next eight years.

Electrical & electronics industry emerged as a prominent segment and accounted for 20% of total market volume in 2016 owing to rising product usage in semiconductor packaging among other applications such as flexible circuit boards and high-temperature resistance wires. Polyimides are used along with plastics such as PBT or PETG due to their superior properties including low dielectric constant & high thermal conductivity which makes them suitable for electronic components housing especially heat sinks & fans where heat dissipation from integrated circuits needs to be increased significantly.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific Polyimide Market led the global industry and accounted for over 40% of the total market volume in 2016. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period owing to rising product demand from various end-use industries, such as aerospace & defense, electrical & electronics, automotive and others.

The growing manufacturing sector in India on account of low labor costs coupled with easy availability of raw materials is anticipated to augment PI demand from this country. In addition, favorable government policies aimed at promoting domestic production are likely to create ample growth opportunities for polyimide manufacturers in this region thereby driving regional market growth during the forecast period.

Europe was estimated as a significant segment by Poly Imide Association (PIA) due to presence of major companies such as BASF SE; Bayer AG; Chemtura Corporation; Clariant International Ltd.; Evonik Industries AG; Lanxess A GmbH & Co.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the electronics and electrical industries for high-performance insulation, wiring, and connectors in products such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, cars, and aircraft.
  • Growing use of PI in medical devices due to its biocompatibility and thermal stability.
  • Rising demand for PI films in solar energy applications due to their light weight and high heat resistance.
  • Increasing use of PI composites in aerospace applications due to their superior mechanical properties compared to other materials such as aluminum or titanium alloys.
