The Global Electronic Films Market size is expected to reach $11.9 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 6.9% CAGR during the forecast period. Electronic films improve screen clarity by providing various advantages such as low coefficient of friction, optical transparency, chemical resistance, moisture resistance, conductivity, high-temperature tolerance, low dielectric constant, UV & weather resistance, high insulation, flammable properties, fouling resistance, and protecting electronic devices. These above properties of electronic films improve the durability of product and performance. Moreover, there are various applications like semiconductors, electronic display, and PCB’s which use these electronic films.

These applications like semiconductors, electric displays, circuit boards, and others use electric and electronic appliances as electronic film technology. An electronics film is commonly utilized in an electronic display application, due to its large surface area for excessive utilization of electronic films. Moreover, these electronic films are bifurcated into thin and thick films. Thick films are mainly used over a printed circuit board; therefore, the electronic film market is expected to provide massive growth opportunities during the forecast period.

Covid-19 Impact

The electronic film market has been badly impacted due to the covid-19 pandemic. In various regions, the production has been delayed due to the unavailability of skilled workers and raw material as there was partial and permanent lockdown which has eventually hampered the growth of the market. There has been an increase in the adoption of advanced electronic display and printed circuit board equipment of manufacturing and industrial sectors across the globe which has resulted in boosting the growth of the electric film market. Moreover, due to the covid-19 pandemic, the demand for electronic-based applications has been hindered.

There are various electronic films such as PET, ETFE; Copper films are highly required in the displays of tablets, smartphones, and other electronic devices. Moreover, PTE cells are also needed for electronic solar cell displays and to secure the optics from ecological aspects like dust, abrasion, or heat and to improve light transmission and reflectivity. The market is growing to the high demand for non-conductive films from manufacturers of PCBs, electronic displays, and semiconductors. There has been the deployment of 5G in china by 2020 and digital signage has been adopted which eventually results in increasing demand for electronic displays and PCBs.
