The market size of TIMs, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 2.33 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 11.2% between 2016 and 2021. The high demand from the electronics industry, increasing miniaturization of electronic devices, and continuous new product launches and expansion activities undertaken by different companies are the key factors driving the global market.

Phase change materials are projected to be the fastest-growing type segment during the forecast period. They are solid at room temperature and melt (undergo a phase change) as the temperature rises. This makes the material as easy to handle. These materials are effective conductors of heat, both above and below the melt point. When operating above the melt point, they are not effective as an adhesive and need mechanical support. Therefore, they are always used with a clamp, applying pressure in the 300 kPa range.

Phase change materials can be obtained in a variety of configurations, both supported and unsupported, and loaded with fillers to enhance thermal conductivity. These materials flow into voids between mating surfaces as effectively as thermal grease, when subjected to heat during the assembly process. These materials consist of organic binders (a polymer and a low melt-point crystalline component), thermally conductive ceramic fillers, and a supporting substrate (aluminum foil or woven glass mesh).

Medical device is the fastest-growing end-use application segment of the TIMs market. The electronic devices used in the medical industry need proper thermal management. The electronics used in this sector must stay cool enough to run continuously and correctly within their operating temperature range. The effective thermal management allows excess heat to be efficiently moved, spread, and dissipated. This improves system reliability and service life of electronic devices in the medical industry. Many medical tools leverage the computing power of advanced microprocessors. These include lasers, ultrasound equipment, X-ray machines, and digital imaging technologies. These devices need effective thermal management as the excess heat can result in inaccuracies or malfunctions. TIMs play an important role in the development of cutting-edge devices used in imaging, diagnostic, and surgical applications.

Asia-Pacific is the largest market for TIMs, which is projected to register a high growth, in terms of value, between 2016 and 2021. Accelerating demand from end-use industries such as consumer electronics and telecom in Asia-Pacific is driving the TIMs market. Significant development in the electronics sector and increasing demand for miniaturization of electronic devices in various end-use industries such as consumer electronics and telecom are expected to drive the market in this region.

Thermal Interface Materials Market

Although the TIMs market is growing, a few factors restrict its growth. Maturity of the telecom and electronic industries in developed economies is a major restraint for the growth of the market. This has led to a gradual shift in demand and production of electronic chemicals and materials from North America to Asia-Pacific.

Companies such as Henkel AG & Co. KGaA (U.S.), Bergquist Company (U.S.), Indium Corporation (U.S.), Parker Chomerics (U.S.), Dow Corning (U.S.), Laird Technologies (U.S.), Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (U.S.), and Zalman Tech Co., Ltd. (South Korea) are the dominant market participants in the global TIMs market. Diverse product portfolio and technological advancements are a few factors responsible for the growth of these companies. These companies have been adopting various organic and inorganic growth strategies such as expansions and new product launches to enhance their market share for TIMs.
