Market Dynamics

The application of carbon-based thermal interface materials as an economical substitute for steel & aluminum is a major market driver for the global thermal interface materials market. Nonetheless, excessive material and manufacturing costs could be a major market restraint.

Increasing power densities in electronic devices and the growing need for cheap heat management solutions

Power densities in electronic devices, particularly microprocessor chips, have increased exponentially over the last few decades. The ongoing trend of shrinking device dimensions has significantly increased thermal issues in electronic circuits. As a result, thermal management is becoming important in ensuring that electronic devices operate according to their specifications. Since thermal interface materials are cheap and could be injected into gaps of any size, they are widely recognized as cheap and applicable thermal management solutions. As the demand and other market prospects for thermal interface materials rise due to the aforementioned factors, they could be recognized as a major market driver for the respective market.

Tendency to increase the thermal resistance of the applied systems

Although thermal management systems such as thermal interface materials find application in keeping temperatures within acceptable limits and ensuring optimum performance and reliability, they are responsible for most of the system's thermal resistance. Since increased internal resistance could decrease the efficiency of the systems, the demand for thermal interface materials and the tendency to cause thermal resistance within the systems act as a major market restraint for the global thermal interface material market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic, like any other market, had a negative impact on the global thermal interface materials market during its initial waves. The following are the key drivers of the market's downward trend during the pandemic:

• Because the industrial-scale synthesis of thermal interface materials requires massive machinery, large-scale industrial reagents and skilled workers, the production of thermal interface materials have been disrupted.

• The global lockdown imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the supply of raw materials necessary to make thermal interface components and the supply of finished products. As a result, the thermal interface materials market's demand-supply dynamics were severely impacted.

• Thermal Interface Materials are commonly found in electronics, medical devices and related industries. Lockdowns and a lack of raw materials in these industries reduced overall activity in these application sectors, lowering the overall demand for thermal interface materials. However, since the ban has lifted, the global thermal interface materials market has grown dramatically.

Segment Analysis 

The global thermal interface materials market is primarily segmented based on chemistry, type, application and region.

The medical devices sector dominates the global thermal interface materials market due to the rising demand for portable medical devices, radiation therapy and IoT-based devices

On the basis of application, the market for thermal interface materials is divided into computers, telecom, consumer durables, medical devices and others. The medical industry's electronic devices require proper thermal management. Electronics need frigid temperatures to perform constantly and effectively within their operating temperature. The heat generated in excess can be transported, dispersed and cooled more effectively with effective thermal management. Because of the rising use of radiotherapy in diagnosis and treatment, rising demand for wearable health devices and wearable electronics and rising adoption of IoT-based smart medical, medical equipment are the respective market's fastest-growing application segment.

Geographical Analysis

Rising living standards, industrialization and penetration of the internet boost the thermal interface materials market in Asia-Pacific

Asia-Pacific dominates the global thermal interface materials market because of rising demand from rising per-capita income, growing internet user base, rapid industrialization and development of end-use industries. Further, the presence of many global manufacturers creates a huge potential for the Asia-Pacific thermal interface materials market.

Competitive Landscape

The global thermal interface materials market is rich in the number of market players, prospects and strengths and is growing rapidly. Furthermore, technological behemoths such as Honeywell International, 3M, Henkel AG, Parker Hannifin, Dow, Laird Technologies, Momentive, Indium Corporation, Wakefield Thermal and Zalman Tech Co., Ltd make the market extensively competitive. The market is fragmented and key market participants use tactics such as mergers, acquisitions, product launches, contributions and collaborations to gain a competitive advantage and recognition in their respective markets.


Overview: Henkel has a diverse portfolio with strong brands, innovations and technologies and holds a strong position in both industrial and consumer businesses through its three business units. Henkel was founded in 1876 and has more than 140 years of market experience. Henkel reported 20 billion euros in sales and 2.7 billion euros in operating profit in 2021. Henkel employs over 52,000 people globally, forming a passionate and diverse team. Henkel is a recognized leader in sustainability, holding top positions in numerous international indices and rankings. The preferred shares of Henkel are included in the German stock index DAX. While Henkel Adhesive Technologies is an adhesives market leader, its Laundry & Home Care and Beauty Care businesses are extremely well-known.
