Polyamide in Electronic Protection Device Market Segment Analysis - By Product Type
PA 6 segment held the largest share of more than 30% in the polyamide in electronic protection device market in the year 2020. PA 6 polyamide is generally used in applications where toughness, lubricity and wear & tear are required, such as gear wheels, rollers, bearings, power tool housings, electrical connectors, coil formers etc. It has excellent heat aging resistance and chemical resistance properties. PA 6 polyamide is also has an excellent surface appearance, especially in filled and reinforced versions, compared to other versions of polyamide, making it a preferred type of polyamide as compared to the other polyamides.PA 6 can withstand temperature up to 310 degree Celsius.
Polyamide in Electronic Protection Device Market Segment Analysis - By Type
Glass Fiber segment
held the largest share of more than 30% in the polyamide in electronic
protection device market in the year 2020. Glass content makes the product more
rigid and flexible giving more stiffness and strength, even after absorbing
humidity. The dimensional stability is also better compared to other types of
material. It is used in many electrical parts like switches, sockets, plugs,
and antenna-mounting devices. It has a specific resistance greater than steel
and thus is used to make high-performance. The main feature of glass fiber is
that it comes in varying sizes and can be easily combined with many synthetic
resins. According to the European Glass Fibre Producers Association, the global
glass fibre market reached revenue of US $ 40 billion in the year 2020. Thus,
the growth in the glass fiber market, will also drive the growth of this this
Polyamide in Electronic Protection Device Market Segment Analysis - By Application
Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) held the largest share of more than 25% in the polyamide in electronic protection device market in the year 2020. Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) is being used extensively in the present days due to the easiness in handling the equipment and safety from electric shock in using the Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB). Handing a Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) is electrically safer than a fuse, since it is properly insulated and coated. Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) automatically switches off electrical circuit during any abnormal condition or any overload. Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) is used in generators or invertors.
Polyamide in Electronic Protection Device Market Segment Analysis - By Geography
Asia-Pacific region held the largest share of more than 40% in the polyamide in electronic protection device market in the year 2020. The highest demand from the Asia-Pacific region is due to the availability of cheap raw materials such as nylons, aramids, sodium polyaspartate, and wool. The presence of emerging countries like India, China and South Korea also drive the market growth in APAC region. Furthermore, the growing demand for environment friendly vehicles, developing aviation sector, and growing investment in the infrastructure sector across the region also propels the market growth.
Polyamide In Electronic Protection Device Market Drivers
Surging Demand from electrical and electronics industry
The increase in adoption of polyamide in electronic
protection devices owing to various reasons such as cost-effectiveness and
environmental friendliness of polyamide is driving polyamide in electronic
protection device market. This is one of the main reasons why other thermoset
materials such as acrylates, phenolic, epoxies and cyanate esters are being
replaced by polyamide in the electronics protection device industry. The raw
material used in producing polyamide like caprolactam is cheaper than the other
thermoset materials. This is hugely driving polyamide in electronic protection
device market. Whereas, the growth in the electronics and IT industrties is
also contributing to the market growth. For instance, according to the JAPAN
ELECTRONICS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION (JEITA) report
2020, the total global production by the electronics and IT industries is
expected to increase by a mere 2% year on year in 2020 to reach $2,972.7
Technological advancements in electronic protection devices
The evolution of technology in the past few years has
contributed to the growth of electronic protection devices. There has been a
significant change in the control, testing and commissioning methods, which
fuels the growth of electronic protection devices industry. This further gives
raise to the need of polyamide in electronic protection devices market, due to
their insulation properties and low flammability. For instance, the Voltage
Test Station (VTS) from Grace Engineered Products is a permanent electrical
safety device that helps quickly and safely validate zero electrical energy
from outside the electrical cabinet. This helps in detecting presence or
absence of voltage, malfunctions of the disconnect switch and unintended
release of stored electrical energy.
Polyamide in Electronic Protection Device Market Challenges
Availability of other substitutes for polyamide
The availability of substitutes such as polystyrene,
polyester, and polybutyleneis are acts as a major challenge to the growth of polyamide
in electronic protection device market. These substitutes are relatively
cheaper and is easier to handle than polyamide that makes them a better
substitute thereby acting as one of the biggest challenge to the polyamide in
electronic protection device industry. Polystyrene can be made into various
other applications by adding other additives, colorants, foam, other plastics
etc. Polystyrene can also be extracted from natural products such as coffee, cinnamon
etc. This makes polystyrene a preferred kind of plastic.
- In May 2020, Huntsman Corporation acquired CVC Thermoset Specialities for US $ 300 million. Under this acquisition Huntsman Corporation acquire the whole business of CVC Thermoset Specialities including composites, thermosets, adhesives and others. This acquisition helped Huntsman Corporation in growing its Advanced Materials Portfolio.
