Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals Market size is poised to reach USD 3 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 16% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of polymer dispersed liquid crystals was over USD 722 Million. The rising demand for internal partitions, where many businesses are now able to switch between clear and private doors that can also be used as projection screens, represent the main use of PDLC windows. Nissan Micra CC installed a four-sided glass box that was made of 150 switchable glass panels which switched in order to create a dazzling outdoor display.

The polymer dispersed liquid crystals market is growing in the healthcare industry owing to the easily cleaned surfaces and privacy of the patients. In order to control privacy, PDLCs have been installed in both interior and outside environments including conference rooms, Intensive Care rooms, bathroom shower doors, installation areas, or as a temporary projection screen.

Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increased Use in Technology – The polymer-dispersed liquid crystals are commonly used in the opto-electronic field because of their electrically switchable properties. It is well established that PDLCs are able to be used as electric switchable alternatives to traditional blinds or curtains by switching from an opaque and translucent state to a voltage-based one. Also, an IoT smart controller has been successfully developed, enabling the operation of wirelessly and autonomously using PDLC films. These factors are driving the polymer dispersed liquid crystals market growth.
  • Low-Cost Production Process - Their successful use as a technology of smart windows has ensured their compatibility with cost-effective production processes, such as roll-on-to-roll processing. Unlike multilayer electrochromic, the PDLC method typically relies on one layer of a transparent film that consists of liquid crystals LC and suspends them as polymer matrix droplets.
  • Numerous Favourable Properties of PDLC – The exceptional mechanical characteristics of polymer dispersed liquid crystals at high temperatures, its excellent chemical resistance, compensable flame retardancy, and good weather ability. There are also different forms of liquid crystal polymer LCPs such as sinterable at high temperatures or injection molded compounds which can be obtained. This factor is gradually driving the PDLC market growth.

Challenges

  • Less Advanced PDLC Architecture - The fact that only two states can be achieved is one of the drawbacks of the PDLC architecture: transparency and scattering. At the same time, when one wishes to ensure a level of illumination throughout a room, light must be drawn through windows, and curtains are still required. This factor may hamper the market growth of PDLC.
  • Availability of Substitutes
  • Higher Cost of PDLC

Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals Segmentation

Product (Laminated PDLC, Self-Adhesive PDLC)

The laminated PDLC segment is estimated to hold 70% share of the global polymer dispersed liquid crystals market by 2035 and is expected to proliferate during the forecast period. The increasing demand for lamination PDLC in the construction and building industry will drive the industry growth. Also, the lamination PDLC is easy to clean and their minimal energy-consuming properties are significantly escalating the business growth. The laminated PDLC enhances the well-being of the user with access to natural light and spatial control. Moreover, they are available in various shapes with holes and notches. Thus, the striving properties of the polymer-dispersed liquid crystals are steering the market growth of laminated PDLC.

Application (Architecture, Automotive, Electronics)

Polymer dispersed liquid crystals (PDLC) market from the automotive segment to hold the largest share of 36.7% by 2035. As a result of the increasing demand for head-up displays and rear-view mirrors, the automotive sector accounted for the biggest market share in global PDLC film production in 2017. HUDs are devices that project information onto the vehicle's windshield, allowing a driver to keep his eyes focused on the road whilst receiving important information. Another type of automotive application using PDLC film is rear-view mirrors. The increasing demand for PDLC in automotive is driving the market growth.
