Drivers – Polycarbonate Films Market

  • Growing demand from the electronics and automotive industry
The automotive and electronics sector are more inclined towards the excellent printability, a full range of color capability, anti-fog, flame retardant, light tramission, and impact resistant product due to growing demand for advanced technology in automobiles. Polycarbonate films are the best materials that fulfills the industrial requirement and can be used to enhance the look of product for a stylish and effective appearance. In automotive, polycarbonate is used for window installation, dashboard, and display and lighting design. Additionally, polycarbonate film is progressively substituting standard glass and other conventional elastomers in automotive applications. Furthermore, polycarbonate films are used to make a multiple number of electrical accessories and hardware gadgets including ID and security cards, graphic film products, reflective panels, and LED/LCD display windows. Polycarbonate films are highly preferred in the electrical and electronic industries as they are one of the safest and most durable materials. The market growth of polycarbonate films is increasing due to the high demand for lighting applications, which has high-temperature resistance along with impact resistance and excellent light transparency. Additionally, growing electrification in vehicles is also driving the demand for polycarbonate films during the forecast period.

  • Increasing adoption of polycarbonate films as an alternative to conventional material
Polycarbonate film has become very popular because of its extreme durability and resistance to harsh conditions especially when compared to glass and metals. Polycarbonate films are progressively becoming a substitute for conventional materials such as metals, glass, and wood. The easy availability and cost benefit are increasingly making films as an appropriate alternative to traditional materials. Polycarbonates possess a unique blend of strength, rigidity and toughness which pave way for its use in the medical packaging. It can be molded easily into intricate objects, which are widely used in the medical industry. Due to its excellent dielectric strength, low moisture absorption and high dimensional stability, the popularity of polycarbonate films is growing across various industry verticals compared to other alternatives, which in turn drive the growth of polycarbonate films during the forecast period.
