Polyetherimide Market Challenges
High Manufacturing Cost of Polyetherimide.
Polyetherimide has become increasingly popular. PEI can be processed by extrusion, injection molding, thermoforming casting, electrospinning, and so on. The use of various heated tool temperatures is critical for producing high-strength PEI materials. The concentration of vibratory energy per unit area determines weldability. Due to the higher melting point of PEI resin than most other thermoplastics, more energy is required to cause the material at the joint to flow. As a result, the cost of producing PEI is higher than that of its counterparts, which may limit its market growth.
