Low Dielectric Materials Market by Type, Material Type (Fluoropolymers, Modified Polyphenylene Ether, Polyimide, Cyclic Olefin Copolymer, Cyanate Ester, Liquid Crystal Polymer), Application and region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and South America).
The global Low Dielectric Materials Market size is projected to reach a CAGR of 6.7% from 2023-2030.
A dielectric material is a poor conductor of electricity but an efficient supporter of electrostatic fields. It can store electrical charges and have a high specific resistance and a negative temperature coefficient of resistance. Low-κ dielectric materials are those that have a low dielectric coefficient and are less likely to break down when subjected to higher electric fields. This leads to low dielectric materials also known as low-k materials being utilized to continue scaling microelectronic devices, colloquially referred to as extending Moore's law. As components have scaled and transistors have gotten closer together, the insulating dielectrics have thinned to the point where charge build-up and crosstalk adversely affect the performance of the device. Replacing the silicon dioxide with a low-κ dielectric of the same thickness reduces parasitic capacitance, enabling faster switching speeds (in the case of synchronous circuits) and lower heat dissipation.
The various factors propelling the growth of the market are the Development of 5G Communication, the Increase in Delivery of Airplanes and Automobile Production, the Increasing Use of Engineering Resin Substitutes for Ultra-Thin Components, and the Use of Low-Dielectric-Constant Materials for High-Speed Communication Networks.
On the other hand, High Processing and Manufacturing Costs are restraining the growth of the market globally. Additionally, factors like Challenges in Processing Low Dielectric Resin and Intense Price Competition from Chinese Manufacturers will create challenges for the market in the coming years.
The automobile industry's sustained growth has paved the way for breakthroughs in in-car infotainment and autonomous vehicles, which has significantly increased the demand for packaging materials with higher levels of dependability. Independent car manufacturers require packaging materials with a low dielectric constant to meet the demands for quick responses, high speeds, and minimal delays. Meanwhile, the trend towards commercial aircraft electrification has been on the rise in recent years, which involves replacing hydraulic, mechanical, and pneumatic systems with electrical systems. As a result, the aerospace and automobile industries require more low-dielectric materials, which are expected to contribute to the growth of the global market. The demand for low-dielectric materials is expected to continue to rise as technological advancements in both the automotive and aerospace industries progress.
