Market And Technology Of Polyimide

Sep 15, 2014

In 2007, the global polyimide (PI) annual consumption of 60000 tons, USA, Japan, Europe is the world's most important market consumption of polyimide. In 2007, consumption USA, Japan, European polyimides are respectively 18000 tons, 16000 tons and 7000 tons. Experts predict, the world of the PI will need to increase the speed of 6% annually, in 2012 the total consumption will reach about 80000 tons.

Experts predict, the world of the PI will need to increase the speed of 6% annually, in 2012 the total consumption will reach about 80000 tons.

PI is one of the best comprehensive properties of organic polymer materials, has been widely used in aviation, aerospace, microelectronics, nanotechnology, liquid crystal, separation membrane, laser fields, all the countries in the study, development and utilization of polyimide included in twenty-first Century the most promising one of Engineering plastics. Due to the characteristics of polyimide in performance and synthetic chemistry, its application is very extensive, including engineering plastics, polyimide fibers, films, advanced composite materials, plastics, adhesives, membrane separation, liquid crystal display orientation agent and other dozens of.

At present, the polyimide in various countries and area consumption is different, USA is mainly used in plastics, accounting for about 80% of consumption; the major European consumption is enameled wire, consumption accounted for 70% ~ 80%; Japan is mainly used in film and plastic, together accounted for 95% of consumption.
