The thermally conductive plastics market is projected to reach USD 255.1 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 13.6% from 2016 to 2021. Strong focus on customization and design flexibility is a prime factor for the growth of market. Plastic materials are comparatively lighter than other alternative materials, such as metals and ceramics; are easy-to-handle, customize, and mold; and have higher scratch resistance, thermal stability, impact strength, and resistance to abrasions. These superior properties of TCPs are a key driver for the growth of the market in the coming years. The demand for smart electronics and technological advancements in the automotive industry is expected to boost the demand of TCPs during forecast period. However, comparatively lower thermal conductivity than traditional materials can restrain the growth of TCPs market during the forecast period. Fluctuating prices of raw materials and high cost complex production process are key challenges for the growth of the market.

Among end-use industries, the automotive segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. Increasing demand for energy efficient lighting solutions, compact design, and lightweight automobiles are key factors expected to drive the demand for TCPs in the automotive segment. Furthermore, the use of thermally conductive plastics as metal replacements reduces weight of vehicles, increases performance, provides design flexibility, and thus reduces the overall costs. These factors are expected to contribute to the increasing consumption of TCPs in the automotive industry.

The use of shale gas as a raw material to manufacture polymers has lowered TCP prices in the market and is expected to boost the regional demand in North America. The U.S. led the North America thermally conductive plastics market. The markets in emerging economies, such as China, India, and Mexico are also expected to witness rapid growth in the coming years.

The thermally conductive plastics market is projected to reach USD 255.1 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 13.6% from 2016 to 2021. The growth of the market is majorly driven by increasing demand for the plastics in the manufacturing of LED lights, lightweight heat sinks, electrical vehicles, medical devices, and lightweight automotive vehicles. These plastics provide design flexibility in comparison to other traditional materials which has led to their increasing adoption across various end-use industries.

Based on type, polyamide was the largest segment of the market in 2015, as polyamide is rapidly replacing metals in various applications, due to its superior properties, such as impact resistance, high temperature resistance, abrasion resistance, excellent balance of strength, resistant to bases, and heat conductivity. The polycarbonate segment of the market is projected to witness highest growth during the forecast period. Polycarbonates are increasingly being used in various end-use applications, such as automotive under the hood components, LED luminaires, consumer appliances, medical devices, and so on.

Based on end-use industries, the electrical & electronics segment is projected to lead the market during the forecast period, owing to the rapid adoption of Thermally Conductive Plastics (TCPs) across applications in the industry in recent years. TCPs are used in heat sinks, cooling parts, enclosures, mounting devices, interface materials, chipsets & IC assembly, connectors, and cooling systems. The automotive end-use industry segment of the market is projected to witness highest growth during the forecast period, as TCPs are replacing metals in various automotive applications which results in reduction of overall weight of vehicles, increased performance, and thus reduces the overall costs.

North America was the largest market for thermally conductive plastics in 2015. The market in Asia-Pacific is projected to witness highest growth during the forecast period, owing to high disposable income and rising standard of living in the region, which is expected to boost the demand for smart electronics and electrical vehicles during the forecast period. In addition to this, government initiatives and policies to attract investments from various international companies to expand the electrical & electronics and automotive industries will also boost the growth of the market in the region.

Price and availability of raw materials are key factors that determining the cost structure of TCPs. Most of the raw materials used in the production of TCPs are petroleum-based derivatives and are vulnerable to the fluctuations in commodity prices. In addition, the thermally conductive plastics market is still in the introductory phase, due to which the major portion of the product cost involves the cost of R&D. This high cost of TCPs, as compared to metals, can acts as a major restraint for the growth of the market.

Key players, such as Toray Industries Inc. (Japan), Royal DSM N.V. (The Netherlands), RTP Company (U.S.), Celanese Corporation (U.S.), PolyOne Corporation (U.S.), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Kaneka Corporation (Japan), and Mitsubishi Engineering-Plastics Corporation (Japan) operating in the thermally conductive plastics market have adopted both, organic as well as inorganic growth strategies between 2012 and 2016 to strengthen their position in the market. New product developments, expansions, acquisitions, and agreements, collaborations & partnerships were the major growth strategies adopted by market players to enhance their regional presence and meet the growing demand for TCPs in emerging economies.
