Conductive plastics are produced by incorporating carbon fibers, carbon nanotubes or stainless-steel fibers into the plastic formulation. These dispersed fibers or nanotubes bring about the electrical conductivity effect in plastics.

The conductive polymers have the usual benefits of polymers such as moldability, ease of processing, lightweight, corrosion resistance, and design flexibility and in addition to these properties, they make the end product electrically conductive. 

The Electrical & Electronics segment captures a major chunk of the conductive plastics market and nurtures the global demand with the ongoing advancements and hefty investments by prominent manufacturers. The market is projected to gain huge traction with the growing adoption rate of personal gadgets.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Conductive Plastics Market Growth?

A flourishing electronics and medical devices industry is primarily driving adoption of conductive plastics. Conductive plastics are a class of structural materials. They are called so because they are capable of performing several functions owing to their structure.

The growing trend of owning small, lightweight, and smart gadgets is expected to fuel the growth of the conductive plastics market. Using conductive plastics, lightweight gadgets can be manufactured, because, separate components to induce electrical conductivity would not be required if conductive plastics are used.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Conductive Plastics Industry?

Along with countless advantages, conductive plastics tend to have poor mechanical properties which hinder market growth. Plastic materials have a limited working temperature range and have a maximum conductivity of around 30-40 W/mK only with the very high loading of thermally conductivity fillers.

Consequently, the lower thermal conductivity of these plastics than traditional materials is limiting the use of conductive plastics in various applications such as power plants and heavy machinery; where the conductivity is the deciding factor instead of design.

Furthermore, it is difficult to control the injection molding process of conductive plastics, which is one of the prominent restraining factors for the industry growth.

Why is Asia-Pacific Emerging as an Opportunistic Conductive Plastics Market?

Asia-Pacific leads the conductive plastics market due to the escalation in research and development activities and a rise in the demand for personal vehicles and smart electronics in the region. The market is expected to expand from US$ 453.6 million in 2022 to US$ 1,176.5 million by 2032, at a CAGR of 10% for the period of 2022-2032.

China is a leading user of conductive plastic compounds in the Asia-Pacific region owing to the superior rate of adoption of conductive plastic compounds in the electronics sector. The APAC region will continue to gain new grounds throughout the forecast period, supported by the increasing industrialization, and plentiful availability of raw materials.
