The global thermally conductive plastic market (2015–2020) is estimated to reach USD 757.4 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 14.3%. The market is driven by increasing demand for LED lights, lightweight heat sinks, electrical vehicles, medical devices, and lightweight automotive vehicles. The thermally conductive plastics include various types of plastics such as polyamide, polycarbonate, polysulfone, PPS, PBT, TPU, PEI, PEEK, LCP, ABS, and polypropylene which are commonly used in electrical & electronics, automotive, industrial, aerospace, healthcare, marine, and defense industries.

Thermally conductive plastics are used in various end-use industries such as electrical & electronics, automotive, industrial, healthcare, aerospace, and others. These are the main end-user industries considered in the report. In 2015, the electrical & electronics end-use industry is estimated to account for the largest market share among all the applications, in terms of volume, followed by automotive, industrial, and healthcare. The healthcare end-use industry is estimated to register the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020 among all the end-use industries considered.

PPS, PBT, Polyamide, Polycarbonate, PEI, Polysulfones, and others are considered the main raw materials for thermally conductive plastics in the report. PPS raw material segment is dominant in the thermally conductive plastic market while polyamide is the fastest-growing raw material segment between 2015 and 2020. The rising sale of PPS is mainly driven by its strong demand in LED lightning’s. The demand is dominated by the North American region due to increased awareness toward the clean energy fuels while the Asia-Pacific recorded the highest growth rate between 2015 and 2020 in countries such as India, China, and Japan. The per capita income in these countries has seen lot of growth and it is projected to follow the same trend in the next five years.

Thermally Conductive Plastics Market

Price and availability of raw materials are key factors for thermally conductive plastics manufacturers for determining the cost structure of their products. Raw materials used in the thermally conductive plastics industry include polyamide, polycarbonate, polysulfone, PPS, PBT, TPU, PEI, PEEK, LCP, ABS, and polypropylene. Most of these raw materials are petroleum-based derivatives and are vulnerable to the fluctuations in commodity prices.

However, BASF SE (Germany), Covestro (Bayer MaterialScience) (Germany), and Saint Gobain SA (France) are the leading companies and with an excellent foothold in the U.S. and China. These companies are expected to account for a significant market share in the coming future. Entering into related industries and targeting new markets will enable the thermally conductive plastics manufacturers to overcome the effects of volatile economy, leading to diversified business portfolio, and increase the revenue. Other major manufacturers of thermally conductive plastics are Toray Industries Inc. (Japan), Royal DSM N.V. (The Netherlands), HELLA KGaA Hueck & Co.(Germany), RTP Company (U.S.), Celanese Corporation (U.S.), Polyone Corporation (U.S.), Kaneka Corporation (Japan), and Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics Corporation (Japan).
