Growth in Electronic Devices Industry to Fillip Market Growth

  • With the development of the electrical and gadgets sector over the globe, the demand regarding materials associated with the making of electronics and electrical products is likewise expanding. Surging demand regarding Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) resins for the production of connectors switches, etc. is likely to fuel the development of the global Polyphenylene Sulfide market. Besides this, expanding utilization of Polyphenylene Sulfide resins in the automobile business is another factor propelling the growth of the market. Additionally, surging demand for Polyphenylene Sulfide resins for filter bags and industrial filtration application is foreseen to help the demand further. Apart from this, demand regarding high temperature fire resistant coatings is another factor in charge of development of the global PPS market.
  • Usually known as a super engineered plastic, polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) resins have their heat resistance and light-weight features. These properties are being embraced widely by automobile sector which is seeing a fast change as far as progressing vehicle electrification. In an need to satisfy rising need for light-weight and eco-friendly vehicles, the quantity of electric components have  expanded significantly.
  • The polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) resins are exceptionally looked for in electric car components that require high-temperature security, for example, motor wires, coils, electric parts, and insulating films.

Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) resin is a semi-crystalline organic polymer made of aromatic rings linked with sulphides. PPS is a temperature resistant colour engineered plastic which is white to light tan in colour. It can tolerate temperatures up to 218 °C. It possesses unique properties such as resistance to extreme temperature, high mechanical strength, flame retardancy, chemical resistance, relatively higher dimensional stability and is a non-conductor of electricity. These exceptional properties make PPS an effective substitute for thermoset plastics and for metals. Polyphenylene sulfide resins are available in various grades and forms such as fibres, compounds, filaments, coatings and films. PPS resins are reinforced with different strengthening materials, particularly glass fibers, to enhance their thermal and mechanical properties. Polyphenylene Sulfide resins are used in numerous applications such as for production of fibers that are used for making belts, conveyors, filtration media and flame-resistant clothing. Additionally, PPS is used to make electrical insulation, gaskets and packing and papermaking felts.

Market Dynamics

With the growth of the electrical & electronics industry across the globe, the demand for materials involved in the manufacturing of electrical & electronics products is also increasing. Increasing demand for Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) resins for the manufacturing of switches, connectors, etc. is expected to drive the growth of global Polyphenylene Sulfide market. Along with this, increasing use of Polyphenylene Sulfide resins in the automotive industry is another factor driving the growth of the market. Moreover, rising demand for Polyphenylene Sulfide resins for industrial filtration & filter bags application is expected to boost the demand further. That aside, growing demand for high temperature flame resistant coatings is another factor responsible for growth of global PPS market. However, availability of substitutes such as PEI and PEEK as well as instability of raw materials prices may hamper the growth of the global Polyphenylene Sulfide resins market during the forecast period. Comparatively high cost of Polyphenylene Sulfide resins has significantly affected the growth of this market. Also, Polyphenylene Sulfide resins are relatively more difficult to process due to their higher melting points as well as the fillers required to get desired impact strength and this might weight heavily on the PPS market in the long run.
