The size of the Electronic Films Market is valued at USD 7.8 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.2 % during the forecast period to a net market size of USD 10.53 billion in 2025.
Electronic films are highly functional films, which include ultra-thin copper layer flexible printed circuit board (FPC) materials; self-adhesive films; and silicone coated films. These films offer various advantages, such as chemical resistance, tolerance to high temperatures, low coefficient of friction, optical transparency, conductivity, resistance to UV rays and weathering, resistance to fouling, high insulation, non-flammable property, low surface energy and low dielectric constant. Electronic films offer protection to electronic devices and enhance overall performance and durability. These films have a wide range of applications in the electrical and electronic industry due to their beneficial properties, such as high insulation, optical transparency, and excellent chemical resistance.
Electronic films like PET, ETFE, copper films are highly employed in displays of smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices. Besides, PTE films are also used for electronic solar cell displays to secure the optics from ecological aspects like abrasion, dust, or heat, and to improve reflectivity and light transmission. Strong demand for non-conductive films from manufacturers of electronic displays, PCBs and semiconductors is the driving force in their market. The deployment of 5G in China by 2020 and the adoption of digital signage will increase the demand for PCBs and electronic displays.
There is a growing preference for large LCD screens in residential and commercial destinations. Large LCD screens have a larger surface area, resulting in higher consumption of electronic film. The demand for digital signage is increasing due to the thriving retail industry. In recent years, display technology has recorded several changes, resulting in an increased implementation of OLED, QDLED (quantum dot light emitting diode), and EPD. Electronic films are applied to electronic components such as television, printed circuit boards, etc., due to their various characteristics, such as resistance to chemicals, conductivity, etc. The global electronic film market is expected to experience substantial growth with the rising call for electronic films. electronic and electrical industry products.
The global industry leader Apple has recently announced that it will be making the next generation of iPhones in India, rather than in China. This shift comes during a chilling of relations between Washington and Beijing as a result of accusations of unfair trade and business practices by the USA against China.
Canada arrested the daughter and CFO Meng Wanzhou of the Chinese electronics manufacturer Huawei. This was done at the behest of the US government which accuses Huawei of cheating banks in order to continue business with Iran despite US sanctions. This is further expected to strain the already tense relationship between the two economic superpowers.
Electronic Films Market Drivers
Increased demand for tablets, smartphones, and other similar consumer electronics, along with the high performance properties of polymer based electronic films are the main factors driving the global electronic films market. The global market should be stimulated by the increased demand for electronic films in the electronic industry for the manufacture of smartphones, tablets and touch screens. This is mainly attributed to the growing consumer demand for LED and LCD touch screens. For example, the consumer electronics association (CEA) forecast in January 2018 a 3.95% increase in the consumer electronics sector compared to 2017 with a turnover of $ 351 billion. Also, the increasing demand for high-performance polymer films in many electronic applications should further fuel market growth in the coming years. Electronic films are used in this application because they have properties such as chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance, low coefficient of friction, optical transparency, conductivity, resistance to UV rays and weather, resistance to humidity, high insulation, low surface energy and low dielectric constant. Rapid growth in the retail sector is expected to create demand for digital signage which, in turn, spurs demand for electronic displays is another factor that should stimulate growth in the target market during the forecast period. Another factor expected to drive growth in the global electronic film market is the increase in applications in the automotive and electronics industries.
Furthermore, the increasing penetration of the Internet and smartphones is expected to stimulate demand for electronic products, which in turn will drive growth in the global market. The rapid growth of the e-commerce industry is a key factor that should drive growth in the target market in the next 10 years. The growing demand for electronic films in smartphones, laptops, tablets, vehicle screens and industrial touch screens and the growing demand for consumer electronic devices are the key factor in the growth of the global electronic film market. Technological developments offering superconductive and defensive films should also drive market growth in the coming years. Electronic films are gaining ground in the market because they offer several advantages, such as chemical resistance, low coefficient of friction, tolerance to high temperatures, optical transparency, and conductivity in end-user applications.
The high cost of technological development and manufacturing of electronic films and the volatility of ITO prices are the main factors limiting the global electronic film market. Strict government compliance with the use of plastics is an important factor that can hinder the growth of the global electronic film market to some extent.
The continued development of application products and the development of PCBS due to the expected rollout of 5G present growth opportunities for the global electronic film market. Rapid advances in electronic film technology coupled with the continued development of printed circuit boards and other electronic products will offer immense market opportunities for players operating in the electronic film market during the forecast period.
The high processing costs associated with ITO-based electronic films are expected to create significant challenges for market participants and hamper market growth during the evaluation period.

Electronic Films Market segmentation as per the research report until 2025.
On the basis of Film Type, the market is separated into Conductive and Non-Conductive. Conductive films might cause accidental discharges and shortcircuits in the machinery. Due to the added advantage of being nonconductive, these films are the most widely used segment for electronic films. The demand for nonconductive films is also expected to increase faster than for conductive films. Nonconductive films were the largest market segment as of 2020 and are projected to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-2025.
On the basis of Material, the market is separated into ITO on Glass, Polymer, Metal Mesh, and ITO on PET. Polymers being light and inexpensive are the largest segment. They also give the added benefit of being non-conductive. High-temperature tolerance, low friction coefficient, and superior toughness are some of the other salient features of these materials. Polymer segment accounted -for the largest market share and is anticipated to retain the lead during the analysis period of 2020-2025.
On the basis of Application, the market is separated into Electronic Display, Semiconductors, and PCB. Electronic display due to its huge application potential captured the largest market share for Electronic Films.
