Applications in Consumer Electronics to Provide Momentum
Technological advancements have consistent reduced the size of electronic circuitry. The reduction in size of components has led to reduced spacing between microscopic insulators and circuits, diminishing their sensitivity to electric static discharge (ESD).
To safeguard these components, a packaging solution like anti-static films is absolutely essential.
Thus, growing demand for consumer electronics and increasing focus on their miniaturization has led to a steady demand for anti-static films in this sector.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for consumer electronics has risen significantly as the “work for home” shift has led to BYOD in several cases.
Furthermore, increasing expenditure on personal devices for entertainment as such as gaming is expected to propel the market further.
