Global Polyimide (PI) Varnish Market is Projected to Witness a Volume CAGR of 5.6% During the Forecast Period 2017-2027

The global polyimide (PI) varnish market held a market volume of about 1,912.8 metric tons in 2020 and is projected to reach nearly 2,654.4 metric tons by the year 2027 at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2017 to 2027. The market was valued at USD 113.5 million in 2020.

Polyimide (PI) varnish is a polyamic acid precursor solution of polyimide. The market is expected to be driven owing to the growth of the automotive industry and increasing demand for new aircraft. Furthermore, developments by market players and rising usage in consumer electronics, semiconductors, IT, and telecommunication industries, among others are anticipated to boost the market growth. However, the increasing e-waste and its negative effects on the environment are estimated to negatively hamper market growth.

Growth Influencers:

Growth of the automotive industry

PI varnishes are used for coating due to their adhesion and transparency properties. These applications are vital as they offer an economical way of obtaining functional material. The cost of material decreases, as less amount of polymer, is required. The varnish also provides thermal resistance, which helps in the automotive industry by keeping the automobile cool. Therefore, increasing demand for PI varnishes owing to its high applications in the automotive industry is expected to boost the market growth.

Increasing demand for new aircraft

Polyimide varnish is used as a heat-resistant composite member for aircraft. It is composed of carbon fiber or glass fiber for achieving lightweight, high-strength, and heat-resistant aircraft. It is used in various fields such as the defense and space sector for manufacturing heat-resistant aircraft. Therefore, rising demand for new aircraft is expected to boost the demand for polyimide varnishes as well.
