Polyphthalamide (PPA) Resin Market to exceed $1.9 Billion by 2026

  • Published Date: January 24, 2020

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Polyphthalamide (PPA) Resin Market size is expected to surpass $1.9 billion by 2026.

Polyphthalamide resin is a high heat-resistant polyamide synthesized by the reaction of aromatic diacids and aliphatic diamines. The raw materials required for the production of polyphthalamide resins are isophthalic acid, terephthalic acid, aliphatic diamines, etc. These raw materials are mixed with required catalysts, along with capping agents and comonomers in a reactor with presence of water. This provides high mechanical strength and chemical stability which enhances its application in electronics sector, as a suitable replacement for metals and other engineered plastics.

Positive outlook of electrical & electronics industry will trigger product sales

PPA resins are widely used in electrical & electronics sector for making automotive electronics, mobile telephone parts, connectors & plugs, bulb & LED sockets, etc. These resins’ ability to resist infrared soldering environment offers them added advantage over other resins. The demand for electronic products is increasing rapidly owing to rising population, changing consumer preferences and high disposable income levels. Moreover, various countries are investing huge amounts of money and formulating supportive polices to accelerate the pace of electrical & electronics industry. Such trends will bolster the polyphthalamide resin market share during the forecast time span.
