Bismaleimide Monomer Market: Overview

Bismaleimides are compounds possessing two maleimide groups connected by nitrogen atoms. Bismaleimide monomer exists in the form of yellow tan powder. Bismaleimide-based polymers are primarily used for high temperature applications with temperature up to 250°C. These compounds are used as crosslinking reagents in polymer chemistry. Bismaleimide monomers are often blended with reactive co-monomers such as vinyl & allyl compounds, allyl phenols, isocyanates, and aromatic amines, as these provide high toughness and flexibility. Bismaleimide monomers exception characteristics such as thermal, mechanical, and dielectric properties, chemical resistance, toughness, and moisture resistance. Bismaleimide monomers are widely used in motor insulation materials, laminates, unidirectional weftless tapes, high temperature resistant dip varnishes, mica tapes, electronic copper clad laminates, molded plastics, powder coating, advanced composite matrix resins, casting parts, aerospace structural materials, heat resistant structural components of carbon fibers, high-end printed circuit boards, engineering plastics (polypropylene, nylon, polyamide, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, polyvinyl chloride, polybutylene terephthalate), and other functional materials.

Bismaleimide Monomer Market: Key Segments

Based on type, the global bismaleimide monomer market can be segmented into 4,4'-bismaleimidodiphenylmethane, 1,6-Bis(maleimido)hexane, Bis(3-ethyl-5-methyl-4-maleimidophenyl)methane, 1,4-Bis(maleimido)butane, 2,2-Bis[4-(4-maleimidophenoxy)phenyl]propane, Bis(2-maleimidoethyl) Disulfide, 1,2-Bis(maleimido)ethane, N,N'-1,4-Phenylenedimaleimide, N,N'-1,3-Phenylenedimaleimide, and others. The 4,4'-bismaleimidodiphenylmethane segment accounts a major share of the market. It is one of the main building monomers used for producing bismaleimide resins. Demand for 4,4'-bismaleimidodiphenylmethane for the use in bismaleimide resins is expected to increase in the next few years owing to their polymerizing and curing properties.
