Liquid Crystalline Polymers (LCP) Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends and Forecast 2014 – 2020

Liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) are an exclusive group of linear polymers which can line up themselves parallel to one another to structure a liquid crystal phase. This alignment of the group of linear polymers is self-reinforcing and it eventually results in exceptional mechanical properties typically associated with a high degree of orientation. Liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) showcase high flow and very low viscosity which results in complete filling of small and intricate molds. This property makes the liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) the preferred choice in the making of intricate parts or components with tremendously short cycle times. The components made from liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) are used in a wide range of industries such as electronics, automotive, aerospace, food packaging and medical industries. The growing demand for liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) from all these industries is predicted to drive the global liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) market in the next few years.

Liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) are emerging as an effective substitute for other engineering resins and high performance thermoplastics. This is due to the fact that, liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) can be efficiently used to produce ultrathin components having 0.1 mm wall thickness with very less cycle times. The resins that are competing with liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) can be used to produce thin parts up to 0.25 mm thickness and not less than that. Moreover, they take longer cycle times than that of liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs). The properties such as high temperature resistance, high stiffness and high flow makes liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) the most preferred option in the manufacture of intricate components. The growing electronics and automotive industry and the emerging trend of producing intricate components by using microinjection molding is expected to drive the global liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) market in the years to come.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) in the next six years. The key reason for this is the rising demand for liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) from developing countries such as China, India, Indonesia and Thailand. Additionally, the countries in the regions like Africa, South America and the Middle East are showing quick economic growth since the last few years. In addition, the U.S. and European countries are gradually recovering from the economic collapse. All such factors are creating a positive outlook for the global industrial scenario. Considering this outlook, the automotive and electronic industries are projected to record a remarkable growth in the near future. There is an outstanding market potential for the plastics industry, especially the liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) industry in the emerging nations such as China, India and Brazil. The rising demand for liquid crystalline polymers in the electronics, automotive, food packaging and medical industry is anticipated to drive the global liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) market in the future.
