Electrical & Electronics

Plastics have been an integral part of the electrical and electronics industry. Engineering plastics and high-performance polymers progressively play a critical role in the production of electric & electronic (E/E) components.

Taking it a notch ahead, plastics and polymers are now used to manufacture highly conductive, temperature resistant, flexible, fire-resistant and cost-efficient electronic components, electric vehicles and devices. Optical devices and medical sensors have gained popularity in recent times which has led to an increased inflow of innovations from around the globe.

Explore recent product advances (new polymers or plastics designed especially for electronics, plastic components for E/E market, 5G electronic components, and biosensors and optical devices based on plastics) and research innovations from electronics industry.
