    Conductive additives or fillers are conductive materials, which are added to other base materials, such as polymers and elastomers, to impart a specific level of thermal or electrical conductivity to the latter. Growth in new trends, such as printed electronics, foldable electronics, and flexible electronics, is likely to fuel the market’s growth. Increasing penetration of conductive additives with increasing demand for lightweight and composite materials, increasing demand for lightweight materials including carbon fiber composites, and exceptional increase in the penetration of electric vehicles as well as miniaturization of electronic devices are some of the other fueling factors for the market. Conductive carbon additives are used across industries such as automotive, electrical & electronics, aerospace & defense, industrial, and consumer goods.

    Recent Product Developments: 

    Lightweight, high efficiency, and electrical insulation are the indispensable focus areas of the leading players in product development. For instance, the Imerys product, C-THERM™, offers high electrical and thermal conductivity, wear reduction, and very little corrosion.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The pandemic caused a minuscule decline of less than 5% of the conductive carbon additives market in 2020. The market was well-backed by strong demand from industries such as electrical & electronics and automotive. Furthermore, an incessant shift from traditional ICE vehicles to EV vehicles, resulting in heavy demand for conductive carbon additives in li-ion batteries, is likely to give an impetus to the demand for conductive carbon additives.
