Thermal conductivity can be defined as the ability of a given material to conduct/transfer heat, the reciprocal of which is called thermal resistivity. The transfer of heat takes place at a lower rate in materials having low thermal conductivity, compared to materials that have high thermal conductivity. Unfilled plastics and polymers are already being used in various areas as replacements for metals and other similar materials because of their advantageous properties. However, due to their limitations in terms of thermal conductivity, wider use of these polymers has been limited. It is here that polymers/plastics filled with thermally conductive compounds, such as metals, ceramics, carbon and minerals take centerstage and operate as highly efficient materials for the chosen application.

Accounting for a share estimated at 30.8%, valued at US$45.2 million in 2022, Asia-Pacific leads the demand for Thermally Conductive Plastics (TCPs) on a worldwide basis. The region is also projected the fastest growing market for TCPs for the period 2022-2028.
