Chemical and Materials Optical Film Market

The optical film market is projected to grow at a CAGR 6.28% rate between 2021 and 2026. Increasing demand from the televisions, smartphones & tablets application for large display panels is one of the major drivers for the growth of the market.By application, television is accounted to hold the largest market share during forecast period. Television, smartphones & tablets, desktop monitors & laptops, signage/large format display, and automotive display are some of the major applications in the optical film market. High acceptance of optical film in LED and LCD is the key reason for the high consumption of optical film in the television application. Increased size of the LCD and LED screens and demand for large television units is the major driver for the growth of television application.


The polarizing film segment is expected to dominate the overall optical film market, in terms of value, as it is widely applicable in both LCD and OLED displays for various applications. Polarizing film converts non-polarized light into linearly polarized light by transmitting only the incident beam that propagates in one direction and absorbing all other beams.


APAC accounts for the largest market share of optical film, due to growth of end-use segments such as consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, optical equipment, and lighting. Emerging countries such as South Korea, China, and Japan have the presence of major optical film manufacturers, such as LG Chem, Ltd., Hyosung Chemical, Toray Industries Inc., and Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. All these factors are driving the demand for optical film in the televisions and smartphones & tablets applications in APAC.


LG Chem, Ltd. (South Korea), Hyosung Chemical (South Korea), Toray Industries Inc (Japan), Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. (Japan), 3M (U.S.), Zeon Corporation (Japan), Kolon Industries Inc. (South Korea), Sanritz Co., Ltd. (Japan), Nitto Denko Corporation (Japan), and Samsung SDI (Japan) are some of the key players in optical film market.
