Thermochromic Materials Market By Type (Reversible & Irreversible), By Application (Food quality indicators, Papers, Pigments, Thermometers and Others) and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa) - Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Thermochromic materials change reversibly with changes in temperature. Using metal compounds or liquid crystals they can be made as semi- conductor compounds. The change in color happens at a determined temperature, which can be varied fixing the material. On the basis of product type the global thermochromic market can be segmented into irreversible and reversible materials. Reversible materials is preferred over the irreversible materials. They do not have the ability to return to their original state therefore are widely used in baby products and chemical containers market. 

Rising demand for thermochromic materials in food quality indicators and growing use of thermochromic pigments in paints & coatings and inks is projected to drive the market over the next six years. Furthermore, rise in demand for thermochromic material in novelty products is another factor driving the market growth. The use of reversible thermochromic materials in sensors and baby products is projected to enhance the market growth over the forecast period.

Reversible technology is preferred more when compared with irreversible technology. However, to attain reversibility along with maintaining stability is a complicated process, which is the major factor restraining the market growth.

By applications, pigments accounts for the major share of the global thermochromic materials market. The market is witnessing growth on account of their improved performance characteristics and high versatility. Moreover, owing to increasing awareness about the pigments, the military equipment manufacturers are also using these pigments for camouflaging their sensitive devices. To determine the quality of frozen foods and meat the usage of thermochromic materials as food quality indicators is projected to bolster the market demand over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the most attractive market on account of rising demand for thermochromic materials from the textile and automotive industry. The market for thermochromic materials in North America is driven by the rising demand for these pigments from the printing and packaging applications.
