US conductive polymer demand will grow 5.7 percent annually through 2010. Gains will reflect needs to shield electrical/electronic equipment from ESD and EMI/RFI, and ongoing miniaturization requiring greater levels of protection. ABS will remain the leading conductive resin while polypropylene will grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the US conductive polymer industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by conductive polymer technology, resin (e.g., ABS, PVC, polyphenylene, polycarbonate, nylon, TPP), function, application (e.g., product component, antistatic packaging, material handling, work surface and flooring) and by market.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure and competitive strategies, evaluates company market share and profiles 42 leading competitors including GE Plastics (General Electric), Noveon (Lubrizol), Techmer Lehvoss, RTP, Illinois Tool Works, and PolyOne.
