This Frost & Sullivan research service aims to provide an overview of the global opportunities for materials in the consumer electronics industry. The research topics that are covered in the service include an industry overview and industry background, impact, and factors. The research also focuses on providing an insight into the possible opportunities for engineering plastics, liquid crystals, display films, and adhesives and sealants segments. Market potential, opportunity mapping, competitive structure, competitive factors, and key companies in the consumer electronics industry are also discussed.
Film manufacturers are shoring up the capacity of acrylics as they are gradually replacing Cellulose Triacetate (TAC) films across various display platforms.
Ultraviolet (UV) curable adhesives are finding increasing prominence in assembly solutions for electronic components.
Engineering plastics, such as polycarbonate and polyamides, will gain more presence in the market as end applications become more demanding.
As product lifecycle and development time shortens, manufacturers would need to create an additional line of investment to support product innovation and capitalize on the market when the time is right.
As dynamics shift from Light Emitting Diode (LED) to Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays, plastics such as Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) are expected to lose share to more cost-effective alternatives, like polycarbonates.
End products are becoming more cost competitive, and therefore manufacturers will not only have to revamp their product lines but also re-align their manufacturing processes to make it more cost and energy efficient.
Companies across the value chain, especially material manufacturers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), have to strive to understand the market from a holistic vantage point in order to address the dynamic future needs of the industry and prepare for disruptive trends.
Electronic material manufacturers are looking to partner with or acquire smaller and regional participants in order to increase their brand equity and overall presence in the market.
Material suppliers should mimic OEMs in developing a robust strategy for the Chinese region by moving quickly towards establishing a comprehensive manufacturing and supply vision that focuses on the fast growing consumer electronic industry in the region.
With a strong manufacturing footprint and vertical integration, Asian companies’ leadership position in the materials market will continue through the next decade.
Miniaturization trends in the consumer electronic industry will drive innovation in the materials market.
Manufacturers that have a broad product portfolio across different materials will have a competitive edge in the market as customers look for solution providers rather than stand-alone material suppliers.
With Asia-Pacific driving the consumer electronic industry, material manufacturers will need to be cost competitive in order to increase their penetration in the market.
Smartphones, tablets, and televisions are the key end-user industries that will propel the growth of the materials market
Asian manufacturers, especially Japanese and South Korean manufacturers, dominate the materials landscape across various end applications in part due to their close working relationship with system integrators and electronic manufacturers.
