Description

Summary

GBI Research's report, "Electronic Polymers Global Markets to 2017 - North America and Western Europe Focus on Innovation While Asia-Pacific Benefits from Low Cost Manufacturing", provides an in-depth analysis of the global polymers market for the electrical and electronics industry. The research presents detailed analysis and forecasts of the major economic and market trends affecting the electronic polymer markets in the major regions of the world. The report contains demand analysis and forecasts, drivers and restraints and a competitive landscape covering the major players in the different regions. The report also contains historic and forecast price trends for all of the major regions. The report presents a comprehensive analysis of the global electronic polymers market covering all the major parameters.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for half of the global polymer demand for electrical and electronic applications and was the largest market for electronic polymers. Traditional polymers such as polypropylene, polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene constituted more than half of the global electronic polymers demand in 2011. These polymers were largely used for insulation or encapsulation purposes.

The global demand for electronic polymers increased from 12.2 million tons in 2005 to 15.6 million tons in 2011 at a CAGR of 4.2%. In the forecast period 2011-2017, the demand is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9%, due to the market dominance of Asia-Pacific.

Executive Summary

Developed Countries Rely on Innovation to Compete with Emerging Economies in Electronic Polymers Market.

Developed countries are focusing on advancing their polymer application technology as countries such as China and India continue to out-produce their richer counterparts, according to a new report by market analysts GBI Research.

The report* predicts that newer applications for polymers will drive growth in the developed regions of Europe and North America, even though the rate of growth will not be substantial at global level due to the smaller market size for these innovations.

In contrast, the Asia-Pacific market is the largest for polymers for electrical and electronic applications, and this is expected to continue with impressive growth over the next few years. This area, with China in particular, has emerged as a manufacturing hub for petrochemical products due to relatively low production costs. This factor, combined with an improvement in living standards, led to the region accounting for 50.9% of the global electronic polymers demand in 2011.

Overall, the global demand for polymers for electrical and electronic applications is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% to 23,293,511 tons in 2017, from a total of 15,601,841 tons in 2011.

Manufacturers in developed countries are typically unable to compete in the Asia-Pacific region because of low labor costs. Accordingly, these countries are relying more and more on the development of more advanced polymer applications.

The UK government, for example, has invested hundreds of millions of pounds in the development of organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and printing electronics, with major manufacturers working on similar technologies.

These innovations have huge potential, yet their success depends on their efficiency and acceptance in the market and, as these applications do not have a particularly impressive track record, GBI Research does not expect these applications to out-perform more traditional encapsulation and insulation applications of polymers such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) in the coming years.
