Thermal Interface Market is expected to grow USD 7.4 billion by 2030


The global thermal interface materials market is expected to grow from USD 3.1 billion in 2021 to USD 7.4 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 10.2% from 2022 to 2030. The thermal interface material market is expanding rapidly due to rising demand for electronic device downsizing, the growing LED industry, and increased use of TIMs in end-use industries. Increased demand for high-quality electronic goods as a result of new consumer electronics launches and technological advancements is expected to drive the demand for thermal interface materials. Furthermore, rising demand for cutting-edge technical devices and specialty electronics for high-end operations is estimated to boost the market throughout the forecast period.

Thermal Interface Materials (TIM) are intermediate materials placed between the heat sink and the devices to improve thermal transmission to the heat sink. They are utilized in various electronic applications, including electric cars, CPUs/Desktops, cellphones, tablets, architectural and industrial lighting, and many others. Demand from major end-user sectors such as consumer electronics is a primary driver for this business. Tapes and films, phase transition materials, gap fillers, greases and adhesives, metal-based TIMs, and other types of thermal interface materials are commercially available.

COVID19 Impact on the Global thermal interface materials Market

The TIMs market has experienced a drop in demand however, it has been briefing in comparison to other key industries. Teleconferencing and remote working technologies are becoming more popular, indicating growth in the telecom sector. The sale of PCs, laptops, video games, and smartphones has increased as more organizations implement work-from-home policies. People who stay at home want individual consumer gadgets for personal use, which has raised the demand for consumer durables. During the pandemic, demand for TIMs in medical equipment increased because of the rapid increase in demand for medical machinery.

Global Thermal Interface Materials Market Dynamics

Drivers: The rising proliferation of electronic devices

Overheating is a key risk for most major industries’ next-generation electronics. Many electronic component production trends have also focused on device miniaturization, further challenging high-performance cooling. TIMs are fundamental in resolving the thermal constraints of contemporary electronic assembly designs. They enhance the thermal interaction between heat-generating electronics and cooling components, thus, increasing power capacity and solidity while minimizing the overall cost of the finished assembly. It is an ideal material that adapts to mating surfaces, wets out throughout the substrate, and is as thin as possible. These materials are an essential component of any thermal management system. It’s an easy component to overlook because it’s a minor fraction of most applications.

Restraints: physical qualities limit its performance

On the other hand, thermal interface material can make or break a device and its associated product. TIMs are inserted into the joint to fill air gaps and are a crucial component of an assembly when solid surfaces are joined together to reduce contact resistance. Although the introduction of TIMs improves heat transport across an interface, it is commonly acknowledged that TIMs also account for the majority of the thermal resistance of a system.

Opportunities: The increasing trend for electrical device miniaturization

The growing demand for miniaturization and mechanization of electronic products such as mobile phones, touch screens and screens, and medical equipment is propelling the TIMs market. As electronics become smaller, the components become more concentrated, causing them to overheat. This raises the heat density on the surface of the electrical equipment. Heat dissipation requires the use of TIMs. The expanding global demand for these electronic items has increased the usage of TIMs in the electronics sector.
