Thermally Conductive Gap Filler Market

Thermally Conductive Gap Filler Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Thermally Conductive Gap Filler: Introduction

  • Thermally conductive gap filler is a compressible, soft material that consists of two-part silicone that can be dispensed directly from its original packaging with minimal to no additional process preparation. It is an ideal option for automated dispensing that uses standard meter mix equipment. Thermally conductive gap filler possesses excellent thixotropic properties that help it dispense easily, prevent slumping on vertical surfaces during assembly, and maintain its vertical stability even after long use.
  • High-functioning electronic assemblies deliver greater value to a wide range of applications in various end-user industries such as automotive by providing safety, reliability, performance, and comfort. However, electronic assemblies generate higher temperatures that can reduce adversely affect performance and reliability over time. High thermal conductivity materials are specifically formulated to effectively dissipate heat from critical automotive parts such as braking and stability controls, engine or transmission control units, sensors, and other high-heat applications.
  • Thermally conductive gap filler is competitively affordable option vis-à-vis alternative materials that combine higher processability with enhanced thermal conductivity. High-performing new silicone technology delivers thermal conductivity in the range of 1.5 – 2.5W/m.K. The material offers improved dispensability, significantly reduced abrasiveness, and stable performance for more reliable electronics in harsh automotive under the hood environments.
  • Thermally conductive gap filler materials also include an optional formulation that incorporates glass beads to control bond line thickness during assembly. The platinum cure system in gap filler enables fast, controlled cure at room temperature, although cure times can be accelerated further with heat to reduce manufacturing cycle times.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Thermally Conductive Gap Filler Market

  • Growth in the automotive industry in emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan and increase in demand for electric vehicles in order to curb pollution are expected to drive the tire industry, thereby boosting the demand for thermally conductive gap fillers in the automotive sector. Electric vehicles consist of electronics systems such as electronics control units (ECU) and printed circuit boards (PCB). These often liberate heat on greater usage. Such devices need heat dissipating materials. Thermally conductive gap fillers are better options available in the market. This is anticipated to drive the market in the near future.

Thermally Conductive Gap Filler: Application Segment

  • In terms of application, the global thermally conductive gap filler market can be segmented into electronics, automotive, machinery, and others
  • The automotive segment is expected to capture significant share of the global thermally conductive gap filler market, owing to increase in installation and upgrade of electronic components in automobiles that require thermally conductive gap fillers for heat dissipation

Covid-19 Impact on Thermally Conductive Gap Filler Market

  •  The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak was reported in China in the beginning of the year. It has created vulnerabilities in the global automotive supply chain, as nearly 85% of the world’s supplies depend on China. The ripple effect was felt globally, and most auto manufacturing plants came to a sudden halt due to lockdowns imposed by governments to limit the spread of the pandemic. Demand for thermally conductive gap filler materials primarily depends on the automotive end-user sector. Closure of various automotive manufacturing plants around the globe is projected to hamper the demand for thermally conductive gap filler in the near future.

Asia Pacific to Dominate Thermally Conductive Gap Filler Market

  • In terms of region, the global thermally conductive gap filler market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Asia Pacific is estimated to dominate the global thermally conductive gap filler market during the forecast period. Growth of the market in the region can be ascribed to expansion in the automotive industry in countries such as India, China, Japan, and Singapore; and significant investment by leading industry players considering potential growth opportunities in the region.
