Polyetherimide Market Segmentation

This research report categorizes the global PEI market on the basis of grade, form, process type, end-use industry, and region.

On the basis of form:

  • Film
  • Sheet
  • Granule
  • Tube
  • Rod

On the basis of grade:

  • Reinforced
  • Unreinforced

The reinforced PEI segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Reinforced PEI is formulated to meet the various engineering demands. It can be categorized into two types, namely, glass reinforced and fiber reinforced. Glass reinforced PEI provides greater dimensional stability and improved electrical and mechanical properties while retaining excellent processability. Fiber reinforced PEI is known for its mechanical strength and hence preferred in corrosion protection applications. Fiber reinforced PEI has a lower expansion rate and higher compressive strength and stiffness as compared to glass reinforced PEI. Reinforced PEI also has higher thermal conductivity than unreinforced PEI, which improves the service life of a component. These properties of reinforced PEI are driving the market in different end-use industries.

The PEI sheet segment to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period.

PEI sheet is made of amorphous PEI that is commonly used as high-performance plastic material. This sheet provides good thermal performance as well as high strength & stiffness. PEI sheet is flame retardant, resistant to acids, and can be operated in the presence of steam and hot water. PEI provides high heat resistance, high strength modulus, and good electrical & insulation properties. PEI sheet has low moisture absorption and excellent dimensional stability in a variety of environments.

On the basis of process type:

  • Injection Molding
  • Extrusion
  • Thermoforming
  • Compression Molding

The injection molding segment to boost the market during the forecast period.

Injection molding is a manufacturing process used for the fabrication of plastic parts. Different varieties of products, in terms of size, application, and complexity, are manufactured using the injection molding process. This process requires an injection molding machine, raw plastic material, and a mold. The process includes melting of the plastic in the injection molding machine and then injecting it into the mold where plastic solidifies into the final product. PEI is ideal for environments that include hot air and water, as it is hydrolytically stable, can be resistant to heat for a long period, and has excellent electrical properties. PEI processed through injection molding is used in applications such as medical devices, instrument trays, and electrical enclosures.

On the basis of end-use industry:

  • Transportation
  • Electrical & Electronics
  • Consumer Goods
  • Medical
  • Industrial
  • Others

The transportation end-use industry to witness the highest growth in the global PEI market during the forecast period.

In the transportation segment, automotive is one of the largest end-use industries of PEI. The use of PEI has been increasing due to its ability to replace metal and other thermosets and bulk molding compounds. PEI is apt for applications that require high heat resistance, strength, and chemical resistance. The largest application of PEI in this segment is in the electrical and lighting systems, followed by under-the-hood applications.

With the rise of electric vehicles, reduction in weight, and increasing demand for fuel-efficient products, the automotive industry is undergoing a transition in terms of material substitution. Therefore the demand for specialty polymers is increasing. PEI is expected to play a key role in this transition of plastics replacing metals in the automotive industry, which is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. 

On the basis of region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • RoW

Europe to account for the largest share in the PEI market during the forecast period.

The key countries contributing to the growth of the PEI market in Europe are Germany, France, the UK, Italy, and Spain. Favorable government policies are expected to provide growth opportunities for R&D in the electronics & semiconductor and automotive industries in these countries. The growth in R&D investment in the region is mainly driven by the automotive, information and communications technology (ICT), and healthcare industries, which is expected to boost the demand for PEI in the region.
