The electric conductivity dyes are suitable for both DC conductivity and AC conductivity, and it is used for enhancing the performance of an electric device, according to a report by Persistence Market Research.

The total electric conductivity (which is the product of DC conductivity and AC conductivity) is expected to be higher than DC conductivity, and the activation energy of total electric conductivity is expected to be lower than that of DC conductivity, owing to the rise of the applied field frequency, which in turn, improves the carrier jumping and consequently the conductivity value.

The dielectric properties consist of dielectric constant, dielectric loss, and dielectric tangent, whereas, dielectric constant increases by the increase of the concentration of electric conductivity dyes. All the dielectric constants, loss tangent and the dielectric loss depend on temperature and frequency, also it shows a peak value influenced by the concentration of electric conductivity dyes as well as the frequency will change. The temperature dependence of the frequency exponent determines that at the level of temperature,the conduction of electric conductivity dyes follows a quantum mechanical tunnel model, whereas at high temperature it follows the correlated barrier-hopping model.

The electric conductivity dyes are used in solar cells, light emitting diodes, transistors, photovoltaic cells, for the purpose of synthesis of the device in order to enhance the performance of the system. The electronics conductivity dyes are used in various electronics devices for the better performance of the system and are cost effective as compared to traditional electronics devices. The AC conductivity of electric conductivity dyes is dependent on the frequency and temperature, under which the dyes are applied to the device and are working. The major applications of electric conductivity dyes can be wearable electronics, textile electronics, conductive fabric, textile sensors, energy harvesting and storage, etc.

Market Dynamics

Rising demand for electricity from various emerging economies such as South East Asia, Middle East etc and their increasing focus on the generation of power and distribution is providing the best quality of electricity are acting as the drivers for the market of electric conductivity dyes. Additionally, reduce the loss of electricity obtained by the use of conductivity dyes is the major factor which will rise the electric conductivity dyes market over the forecast period.

Furthermore, attributable to the average product life of electric conductivity dyes, will indirectly increase the replacement rate of the product, which leads to the high demand and will drive the market of electric conductivity dyes. Rising automation and industrialization in various countries can be considered as the driver for the electric conductivity dyes. The increasing focus of various industries on automation, and also the efforts which are taken for reducing the operational cost, will drive the market of electric conductivity dyes.

Market Segmentation

On the basis of its product types - Azo dyes, anthraquinone dyes, ethyl dyes, fluorescent dyes and others (quinizarin, coumarine etc) On the basis of frequency - Up to 10 kHz, 10-20 kHz, 20-30 kHz and above 30 kHz.

Regional Outlook

Asia Pacific region captures the largest share of the global electric conductivity dyes market, followed by Europe, North America. Asia Pacific accounts for a vital share owing to the sturdy growth in electricity consuming sectors in this region. Also, Asia Pacific region is expected to remain at the leading position among other regions.

However, North America is the largest manufacturer of electric conductivity dyes and some other countries such as UK, Canada, Korea and France provide high-quality electric conductivity dyes. Rising industrialization and urbanization electric conductivity dyes over the forecast period. On the other hand, the electric conductivity dyes market in some regions such as Latin America, Middle East and Africa is projected to account for a relatively small share in terms of value and expected to grow at a significant rate of growth.
