High-performance thermoplastic films increasingly crucial for modern society


March 5th, 2010

Global Information would like to present a new market research report, "High-Performance Films: The U.S. Market" by BCC Research.

In previous times, high-performance thermoplastic (TP) films were important in two major applications: photographic and reprographic applications. However, TP films are becoming increasingly significant for modern day applications, which include: the may make possible economic electric vehicles, improved liquid crystal displays (LCDs), giving rise to the economically practical photovoltaic (PV) industry. Currently, the PV market is emerging as the fastest-growing market for high-performance film.

It is crucial to learn about the high-performance thermoplastic films market, as they will have a major impact on major future issues, ranging from PV systems to electric vehicles. As technology progresses in this area, it will help usher in technology developments in other areas, i.e. electronics. These markets offer opportunities to create value and shift discussions to topics beyond simple purchase price.

Major companies, including DuPont, 3M and Solvay, are significant technology drivers. Such companies invest considerable amounts of capital in research and development in efforts to improve the technology. These days, innovations are driven by improved fabrication and treatment of films. One such example is the invention of specialty polyolefin films as membrane separators for lithium-ion batteries.

BCC Researchs report identifies the trends affecting high-performance polymer films and their major end-use application markets. The report also analyzes and forecasts market developments from the viewpoint of major applications for high-performance films.
