Ease-of-customization and design flexibility is a prime factor for the growth of thermally conductive plastics market

The global thermally conductive plastics market size (2015–2020) is estimated to reach USD 757.4 million by 2020, at a CAGR of 14.3%. The strong focus on customization and design flexibility is a prime factor for the growth of thermally conductive plastics market. Plastic materials are comparatively lighter than other alternative materials such as metals and ceramics and are easy-to-handle, customize, mold, have higher scratch resistance, thermal stability, impact strength, and resistance to abrasions. These are major drivers for the growth of thermally conductive plastics.

Electrical & electronics is the largest end-use industry of thermally conductive plastics

Thermally conductive plastics are used in various end-use industries such as electrical & electronics, automotive, industrial, heathcare, aerospace, and others. In 2015, the electrical & electronics segment accounted for the largest market share among all the end-use industries, in terms of volume, followed by automotive, industrial, and healthcare. Among all the end-use industries, heathcare is estimated to grow register the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020.

Rising demand from North America is the major driver for thermally conductive plastics

In 2015, North America is estimated to account for the largest market share, in terms of volume, and is estimated to remain the market leader in next 5 years. Use of shale gas as raw material for producing polymers has lowered thermally conductive plastic price in the market and is boosting regional demand in the North America region is the major driving factor for the global thermally conductive plastics market. The U.S. led the demand for thermally conductive plastics due to increased demand of LED lightning in the last 2–3 years. Other emerging economies, such as China, India, Mexico, the markets in these countries are projected to grow rapidly.
