LCP have a wide variety of applications depending upon the manufacturing technique used. LCP can be observed in everyday life and are used for industrial, commercial and home use. Various major companies around the world manufacture them. Some of the industries that use LCPs are the electrical and electronics, automotive, food processing, consumer appliances and aerospace industries.
Market Dynamics of the Global Liquid Crystal Polymers Market:
Growing demand for high quality and durable electrical and electronic products in emerging economies
Growing usage of LCPs in automotive industry due to the strength, weight and abrasion resistance properties
Higher cost than most of the polymers Used by industries under strict requirements of high strength and heat resistance
Low bonding strength
The market has been geographically segmented into APAC, North America, Europe, South America and MEA. In terms of consumption in 2015, APAC led the market. It was followed by North America and Europe. This high usage is driven by a rapid growth in industrialization that occurred chiefly due to the foreign investments in developing countries of China and India.
