Rising Sales of Microelectronics Drives Global Polymer-based Thermal Interface Materials Market

Published On : 08 Oct 2018

Thermal interface materials (TIM) are mainly leveraged for supporting heat sink to remove heat from the sources of heat. They find application mostly as a secondary thermally conductive material to remove the thermally insulating air between two surfaces. Apart from enabling smooth transfer of heat between two surfaces, it also functions as an adhesive strengthening the mechanical bond between two surfaces. Thermal interface materials (TIM) are of two types – metal-based and polymer-based. Between the two, the polymer-based thermal interface materials are more widely used. 

USPs of Polymer-based Thermal Interface Materials (TIM) Driving their Greater Uptake

There are several unique perceived benefits of polymer-based thermal interface materials (TIM) that is resulting in their greater adoption than the metal-based thermal interface materials (TIM). They are highly conductive and have excellent adhesion properties. This makes them an ideal choice in thermal management applications in different industrial sectors. Those mostly include automotive, electrical and electronics, and telecom. Because of this, the global polymer-based thermal interface materials (TIM) market is predicted to rise at a healthy clip over the course of the next few years.

The market nevertheless is facing a challenge from substitutes.

Ongoing Cutting-edge Research and Development Benefits Global Polymer-based Thermal Interface Market

Scientists and manufacturing companies are seen focusing on building more cutting-edge products. This is said to be benefitting the global polymer-based thermal interface market. For example, scientists came up with a new polymer-based TIM two year back that was capable of conducing heat 20 times better than traditional polymer. Dependable in extreme high temperatures of about 200°C, the modified material can be fabricated on heat sinks and heat spreaders and adheres well to components in servers, LEDs and mobile devices. The material was also found to allow dependable thermal interfaces in ultra-thin three microns. This made it ideal for microelectronics. This opened up new growth avenue in the global polymer-based thermal interface materials market.

Presence of Key Players in North America and Europe Makes them Important Markets

From a geographical standpoint North America and Europe are key polymer-based thermal interface materials markets. This is because of the presence of many prominent manufacturers in the region. Those include 3M, AI Technology, Akasa Group, Innovation Cooling, and so on. This manufacturers are seen leveraging various strategies to gain a stronghold in the market. Foremost among them is their thrust on product development. Meanwhile sales of automobiles, electronics, micro electronics, owing to the high disposable incomes of people is also serving the promote the polymer-based thermal interface market (TIM) in the region.

Meanwhile, Asia Pacific polymer-based thermal interface market is predicted to see good growth in the next couple of years. This is because of the3 burgeoning automotive and electronics industry in the region. China and India are expected to be main drivers of growth due to the increasing affluence of people in the two nations.
