    Paper held the highest share of 30% in 2019 due to easy availability in the acoustic diaphragm market and low-cost compared to its counterparts. Paper diaphragms are thin and easily modified by chemical or mechanical process. An acoustic paper diaphragm offers excellent moisture resistance and acoustic characteristics, which makes its highly suitable for loudspeakers and microphones.

    The paper acoustic diaphragm is made of paper consisting of polylactide resin blend, a biodegradable polymeric material, which acts as a sizing agent. Furthermore, polypropylene is also one of the largest used materials in the acoustic diaphragm market. Polypropylene is also easily available and are easy to mold. It also offers superior sound absorption performance at low- and high-frequency regions.

    The polycarbonate material type segment will hold a share of over 12% in 2026. Polycarbonate materials are commercially available and are known to plastic artisans. It fulfils all the requirements of a diaphragm including good acoustics, i.e., proper flexibility & rigidity, sound wave propagation, suitable density, and acceptable heat dissipation. The polycarbonate diaphragm mainly has a specific gravity of about 1.10 to 1.400, and a dissipation factor of about 0.05 to 0.30 at 60 Hertz and with excellent thermal conductivity.

    Therefore, due to these versatile properties and features of polycarbonate, it is highly suitable as an acoustic diaphragm. Polycarbonate diaphragm are used mainly in loud-speakers, headphones, and microphones.
