Global Polyphthalamide Market: Overview
Polyphthalamides are high-performance engineering plastics, which possess excellent dimensional stability, high deflection temperature, operate efficiently when exposed to high temperatures, and have low moisture absorption. All these properties are required in the manufacturing of the automobile body parts such as resonators, air cooler housings, charge air hoses, air induction systems, and others. Polyphthalamide is a better substitute to metals in applications where high-temperature resistance is required such as the housing for high-temperature electrical connectors, automotive powertrain components, and many other uses. Polyphthalamide is used in various automotive, electrical and electronics applications. In the automotive industry, it is used to make fuel cut-off valves, fuel and coolant lines, coolant pumps, fuel line connectors, air coolers; water heater manifold fuel modules, pump wear rings, LED headlights, motor bobbin parts, and thermostat housing.
Global Polyphthalamide Market: Growth Factors
Stringent regulations imposed against the use of lead soldering in electronic components have created new growth opportunities in the global polyphthalamide market. Implementations of these regulations helped in launching fuel-efficient vehicles and reduced the vehicle emissions. Engine downsizing is responsible for reducing the overall car weight which is the key factor that contributed to the market growth. As polyphthalamide possesses superior characteristics, it is widely used in the high-temperature air induction applications to improve the lifespan of the components. Polyphthalamide is heavily used in the electronic and electrical component manufacturing in order to produce high-quality products so that they can survive in high-temperature applications without the use of lead in the soldering process; this drives the polyphthalamide market growth. It also provides improved flame retardant properties. Mandatory regulation implemented by the government on the use of plastics that are halogenated flame retardant fuels the demand for polyphthalamide in the electrical and electronic industry.
