Thermal interface materials (TIMs) are expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.7% through 2017. Excluding Japan, the Asia-Pacific market is the largest and fastest growing segment and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 12.3%. Power dissipation is the main driver of the thermal management technology with environmental and regulatory issues having some impact. Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) May 06, 2013 BCC Research estimates that the global market for thermal interface...
