Global Electronic Films Market: Overview
Electronic films are highly functional films, which include materials for flexible printed circuits (FPCs) with ultra-thin copper layers; self-adhesive films; and silicone-coated films. These films offer various benefits such as chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance, low coefficient of friction, optical transparency, conductivity, UV & weather resistance, fouling resistance, moisture resistance, high insulation, non-flammable properties, low surface energy, and low dielectric constant.

Based on type, the global electronic films market can be bifurcated into non-conductive and conductive. The non-conductive segment accounts for major share of the market, led by the high demand for non-conductive electronic films in electronic display, PCBs, and semiconductor applications. Non-conductive electronic films possess physical properties such as high-temperature tolerance, low coefficient of friction, chemical inertness, weather/UV resistance, and negligible moisture absorption. In terms of material type, the market can be classified into polymer, Information Technology Outsourcing (ITO) on glass, ITO on pet, and metal mesh.
Polymer is estimated to dominate the global electronic films market in during the forecast period. Electronic films based on this material are used in various applications such as electronic display, semiconductors, and PCBs. In terms of application, the global electronic films market can be segregated into electronic displays, PCBs, and semiconductors. In terms of value, the electronic display is anticipated to be the key segment of the market in the near future. Rise in demand for large screen LCDs in residential and commercial destinations is estimated to boost the electronic display segment during the forecast period.
