The polymer‐dispersed liquid crystals (PDLCs) market is estimated to grow with a moderate CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029. Increasing demand for innovative materials, majorly in the building and construction industry, is driving the PDLCs market. The features of PDLCs, such as high thermal performance, high-speed binary operations, low absorption, and high extinction ratio, are further fuelling the market demand.
PDLCs are expensive compared to their counterparts, and they are likely to start degrading after five to six years of deployment and, hence, require heavy maintenance. The above factor is anticipated to restrain the PDLC market. Furthermore, the rising research activities to improve the film's durability are anticipated to provide profitable opportunities to market players. For instance, as per the U.S Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), PDLC film application in building smart glass is considered to save up to 8% of a building's total energy consumption.
The market is segmented on product into laminated PDLCs and self-adhesive PDLCs, out of which the demand for self-adhesive films is expected to rise significantly, as they are capable of changing their transparency in response to an electrical impulse. Self-adhesive films are commercially available in the kind of a roll and can be used in existing windows as per the desired size.
Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East & Africa region. The market in the Asia Pacific is predicted to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to expansion of the automotive industry and robust foreign direct investment in various sectors such as consumer electronics and the building & construction. Additionally, North America follows the Asia Pacific, in terms of consumption of PDLC films, due to the increasing growth of power generation, marine and aviation industries in the region. The PDLCs market in Europe is expanding steadily due to the rising prominence of green energy initiatives, such as eco-friendly & green buildings. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
