Along with the escalating disposable income of the middle-class population, the demand for electronic products is estimated to grow in the forecast period.

Bismaleimide Monomer Market Drivers

Bismaleimide for Aerospace Structures

Bismaleimide have proven themselves in missile and space vehicle applications, where extremes of heat at launch can be followed by exposure to extreme cold in space. The market demands are high mostly because of their resistance to moisture absorption. The reduction of weight can be achieved by replacing metallic parts and fabrication costs can also be reduced by its effective processes.   For instance, the US Air Force F-22 fighter jet is the first use of BMI resins at an industrial scale is aeronautics. Among the 24% of thermoset composite materials, half is made of carbon fiber with bismaleimide resins. With further development of an autoclave cure cycle for carbon Bismaleimide components could greatly reduce up to 50% recurring manufacturing costs and overall tooling investment in making of aircraft airframe structure.

Bismaleimide has resistance to fatigue and lack of corrosion

Bismaleimide composite materials have desirable physical properties such as resistance to fatigue and lack of corrosion. Carbon fibers exhibit a negative longitudinal thermal expansion coefficient, whereas matrices usually exhibit a positive one. Adjusting the materials and the structure of the laminates, a nearly zero expansion coefficient can be obtained. This is particularly useful for spatial applications, where the range of temperatures of uses varies from -180?C to 160?C

Bismaleimide Monomer Market Challenges

Limitations such as high melting points, high curing temperature and extreme brittleness

BMI resins hold outstanding thermal and oxidative stability, as well as electrical and mechanical properties and a comparatively low propensity for moisture absorption. However, BMI resins have some downsides, such as high melting points, high curing temperature and extreme brittleness. It is flame retardants for thermally resistant polymers under either a nitrogen or air atmosphere. And lastly, it provides a narrow temperature window for handling the temperature alteration between the melting point of bismaleimide monomer and its start point of curing reaction which requires only a solution processing method.

Low electrical conductivity

Bismaleimide Monomers has somewhat low electrical conductivity through the thickness of laminates in aeronautics. As a result, a lightning strike generating local electrical charges would highly damage the material. Generally, the low electrical conductivity arises with low thermal conductivity which is also a problem, most matrices having a limited range of compatible temperatures.

The emergence of COVID-19 pandemic

The emergence of COVID-19, which is declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, is having a noticeable impact on global economic growth. Currently the Bismaleimide Monomer Market has been affected due to COVID-19 pandemic where most of the industrial activity has been temporarily shut down. In in turn has affected the demand and supply chain as well which has been restricting the growth in year 2020.
