Thermal interface materials (TIMs) are a huge market. TIMs come in an array of forms and see applications across a variety of industries, but many of these markets have stagnated in their performance or demand. However, some emerging markets will reinvigorate volume demand and/or developments in performance.
The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) will redefine the volume demand for the automotive sector and potentially the form in which these TIMs are applied. The area applicable for TIM in an EV battery is vastly greater than combustion vehicles of the past and presents new challenges to the market. 5G has started its deployment, but it has a long way to go in order to realise its true potential at mmWave and thermal management materials play a crucial role for infrastructure and smartphones.
This webinar will take from IDTechEx's latest research on Thermal Interface Materials to address these emerging markets in EV and 5G and discuss how the TIM properties and demands will change with them. The webinar will also cover developments in TIMs for data centers, LEDs and consumer electronics with industry use-cases.
