Global polyetherimide market size was valued at around USD520 million in 2019 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of close to 7% during the forecast period. Polyetherimide (PEI) is used in applications that require high temperature and fast dissipation of heat. Because of its peculiar properties such as low smoke emission, creep resistance and flame resistance, the demand for the product as a thermally conductive plastic is increasing significantly, which in turn is boosting the growth of global polyetherimide market. Moreover, increasing government initiatives along with growing research and development activities around the globe has encouraged utilization of the product, which is estimated to drive the global polyetherimide market until 2025. Furthermore, due to rising contamination and quality issues, PEI is utilized in kitchenware, tableware and catering, which is anticipated to have a positive influence on the market growth. However, one of the major factors that can act as a major impediment to the growth of global polyetherimide market during the forecast period is its high manufacturing cost.

The global polyetherimide market is segmented based on form, grade, process type, application, region and company. Based on process type, the market can be segmented into injection molding, extrusion, thermoforming and compression molding. Among them, the injection molding process type dominated the market until 2019 and is projected to be the largest segment during the forecast period as well. This growth is attributable to its wide use for fabrication of plastic parts. Moreover, several products, in terms of application, size, and complexity are manufactured using this process, which is further boosting the segment growth. In terms of application, the market is fragmented into automotive, aerospace, electronics, pharmaceutical, industrial, consumer, food, others. Out of which, automotive and aerospace sectors are anticipated to register high growth during the forecast period owing to the capability of polyetherimide to replace metal and other thermosets.

Major players operating in the polyetherimide market include SABIC, RTP Company, Ensinger Plastics, Röchling Group, Kuraray Europe, Mitsubishi Chemical Advanced Materials, Solvay SA, Toray Industries, Aikolon Oy, Quadrant Group of Companies and others.
