Liquid Crystal Polymer Market Overview

The liquid crystal polymer market globally is forecast to reach US$ 3.6 million by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2022-2027. Liquid crystal polymers are a class of unique aromatic polymers based on 4-hydroxybenzoic acid and related monomers. These polymers exhibit superior strength at high temperatures, and are chemically inert. Owing to such diverse properties, liquid crystal polymers find their uses in a wide range of applications. The combination of polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) and liquid crystal polymer (LCP) in polymer blend is a potential way of creating new polymer properties. Liquid crystal polymers are used extensively in various electrical and electronic components such as flexible printed circuits, housings, and antenna substrates which are an integral part of various electronic products. The demand for electronic products like smartphones, TVs, PCs, microwave ovens, and tablets are surging globally, increasing the requirement for flexible printed circuits, chip carriers, and antenna substrates and in turn, this is expected to drive the market’s growth in the forecast period. For instance, according to the July 2021 stats by China.org.cn, consumer electronics export witnessed a growth trajectory for 12 months in a row. Furthermore, liquid crystal polymers have a long history of use in various automotive applications such as lamp sockets, fog lamp bezels, connectors, and sensors. The demand for automobiles is booming globally with increasing automobile production and sales and this is projected to drive the market’s growth in the forecast period. For instance, according to the August 2020 stats by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, the Chinese passenger vehicle segment is anticipated to touch 30 million units by 2029 which was 21.44 million units in 2019. The cost of liquid crystal polymer is quite high compared to traditional polymers such as polyphthalamide and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene and this cost factor might affect the market’s growth in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

The liquid crystal polymer market was positively impacted due to COVID-19 as the demand for various end-use applications catapulted.

Moreover, the introduction of online education further amplified the sales of electronic products which propel the market’s growth amid the pandemic. Other applications in medical and automobile contributed to the higher uses of liquid crystal polymers during the forecast period. Going forward, the market is projected to witness robust growth owing to the increasing use of LCP in various electrical and electronics, automobile, and medical applications.

Liquid Crystal Polymer Market – By Type

Thermotropic liquid crystal polymer dominated the liquid crystal polymer market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. This type of polymer possesses excellent thermal properties, low viscosity, and exhibits superior elastic behavior. Thermotropic liquid crystal polymers are widely recognized polymers due to their application in various electronic products including tablets, flat-screen televisions, laptops, and many more. Owing to such diverse properties and uses, market players and research organizations are expanding the portfolio of thermotropic liquid crystal polymer. For instance, as per the February 2021 article by IOPscience, thermotropic liquid polymers are doped with solid nano and microparticles for enhancing the macroscopic qualities of the liquid crystalline host. Such developments with the utilization of thermotropic liquid crystal polymer will increase its demand in the forecast period.

Liquid Crystal Polymer Market – By Application

The electrical and electronic application segment dominated the liquid crystal polymer market in 2021 and is growing at a CAGR of 6% in the forecast period. Liquid crystal polymers display inherent flame retardance, exceptional chemical resistance, and outstanding strength at extreme temperatures. These high-quality properties enable the massive use of liquid crystal polymers in various electronic product components and parts such as antenna substrates and housings, chip carriers, flexible printed circuits, etc. The demand for these electronic applications is increasing due to the massive growth in the demand for electronic products globally and this is expected to drive the market’s growth in the forecast period. For instance, according to the stats by India Brand Equity Foundation, in 2020, the shipment of 5G smartphones crossed 4 million units due to higher consumer demand post-lockdown. Similarly, according to the September 2020 stats by the American Customer Satisfaction Index, laptop demand surged in 2020 as Americans spent more time at home. This high boost in the demand for electronic product is projected to stimulate the higher uses of liquid crystal polymer and in turn, this is expected to drive the market’s growth during the forecast period.
