The Global Polyurethane Based Electrically Conductive Adhesives Market size, shares, recent trends, competitive intelligence, and future market outlook. Demand from Automotive, Consumer Electronics, Aerospace in Asia Pacific is spiking. Competitive rivalry intensifies with Arkema Group, Sika AG, DOW Corning and others operating in the market.
Polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives are most commonly employed in electronics applications where components must be held in place while electrical current can flow between them. The general polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives, such as cyanoacrylates, aerobics, epoxies and acrylic-based adhesives, act as electrical insulators depending on the space between components. It provides better thermal conductivity to the heat sinks by directing heat away from sensitive components and thermal management of electronic components.
The global polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives market is driven by increasing demand for electronic devices and the growing adoption of polyurethane-based adhesives in the automotive and aerospace industries. Additionally, the growing use of polyurethane-based adhesives in solar panels and wind turbines is expected to drive market growth. However, the high cost of raw materials and the lack of awareness about these products in developing countries may hinder the market growth. Increasing investments in research and development to improve the properties of polyurethane-based adhesives is expected to provide opportunities for market growth.
Polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives contain unique qualities, which include low shrinkage, moisture resistance and strong bonds mainly due to the presence of filler materials. It can also block the electromagnetic radiation emitted by electronic devices. The increase in demand for polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives due to different qualities is expected to drive the market's growth.
Further, modern manufacturers focus on producing reliable and small electronic devices to decrease the cost of materials and manufacturing. Manufacturers can build smaller, faster, lighter, thinner, more powerful and energy-efficient consumers. Industrial polyurethane-based electronic systems use electrically conductive adhesives. The growing trend of miniaturization in electronic devices is expected to drive the growth rate of the polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesive market. Similarly, the demand for silver fillers has increased due to their growing popularity in providing improved moisture resistance, low-shrinkage attributes and adhesion.
Government regulation regarding the use of polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives restrains the market growth.
The governments of several economies have regulated many guidelines regarding polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives, which is the major restraining factor for the market. Such regulations are developed to safeguard personnel and the environment from the poisonous vapors and fumes released during the manufacture of electrically conductive adhesives, which raises concerns about health and safety. The respective factor can result in limitations on using specific chemicals or demand for unique ventilation systems in manufacturing plants, which would drive up the operational cost of manufacturing.
Similarly, several regulations are in effect that limits the use of environmentally hazardous substances in adhesives. Polyurethane-based electrical and electronic waste produces pollution hazards, creating environmental problems during their disposal. The respective facts are major restraining factors limiting the global polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives market growth.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on the global polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives market. The initial outbreak of the virus in China, a major producer of electronic components and devices, led to supply chain disruptions and a decrease in production. It led to a decrease in demand for polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives used in electronic devices.
Furthermore, the pandemic has also decreased automotive and aerospace production, which has affected the demand for these adhesives in these industries. Additionally, the lockdown and social distancing measures implemented to control the spread of the virus have led to a decrease in construction and infrastructure development activities, which has further affected the demand for polyurethane-based adhesives. However, the pandemic has also increased the demand for electronic devices, such as laptops and smartphones, as people work and study from home. It has increased the demand for polyurethane-based electrically conductive adhesives used in electronic devices.
