New developments in the industry, such as the launch of colorless polyimide film and the creation of polyimide film for 5G connectivity, artificial intelligence, and other applications, are emerging trends. Some of the main manufacturers and distributors of polyimide film include PI Advanced Materials, DuPont, Kaneka Company, Toray Industries, and Ube Industries.
Drivers - increasing demand for the development of flexible displays for electronic and optoelectronic devices, there has been significant development in flexible active-matrix organic light-emitting diode display panels. Because flexible substrates may make displays thinner, lighter, and less fractured than hard glass, AMOLED display producers favor them over the hard glass. Three substrates—ultra-thin glass, colorless polyimide sheets, and metal foil—have gained popularity recently for the production of flexible displays. The optical transmittance characteristics of Colorless Polyimide Films are equivalent to those of ultra-thin glass, and they also have a hardness close to that of metal foils. Hence, it is anticipated that the rise in sales of these flexible electronics will fuel the need for polyimide.
Challenges – The optoelectronics sector has shown a lot of interest in Colorless Polyimide Films because of their great dielectric characteristics, high heat & chemical resistance, and superior mechanical capabilities. One of the most difficult aspects of fabricating these films is achieving an equilibrium between high-temperature stability and high optical transparency. Hence, it is not ideal to produce the colorless form using conventional methods for synthesizing polyimide films. For the market, this poses a significant obstacle.
