Description





The global fluorochemicals demand has been growing steadily over the last two years on account of increasing application scope, technological innovation, and growing demand in Asia-Pacific. Fluoropolymers have been found to have host of applications in large number of industries due to their versatile properties.

The fluorochemicals market report by Transparency Market Research provides an in-depth analysis of the global fluorochemical industry. The report segments the fluorochemical market on the basis of type, region and application and also provides the forecasts and estimates for each segment and their sub segments. The report also analyses the demand and supply characteristics of fluorochemicals by providing a detailed forecast of volume and revenue for the period 2011 to 2018.

Key fluorochemicals analyzed in this study include fluorocarbons, inorganics and specialties, and fluoropolymers. In terms of consumption, fluorocarbons were the most dominant followed by inorganics and fluoropolymers. Fluorocarbons such as HFC and HCFC are mainly employed in refrigerants and air-conditioners. Other applications of fluorocarbons include industrial coatings, pharmaceuticals and blowing agents. Inorganics and specialty fluorochemicals are employed in aluminum production, fumigation, in cleaning agents, etc. Fluoropolymers are expected to exhibit the fastest growth among all fluorochemicals. Key end-use applications for fluoropolymers include semi conductors, resins, fluoroadditives, etc.

Refrigeration, aluminum production, blowing agents and components and others are the major application markets for fluorochemicals. Components and others are expected to witness the fastest growth while refrigerants garnered the largest share in total revenue generated by the global fluorochemical industry in 2011.

Fluorochemicals are chemical compounds containing fluorine, the thirteenth most abundant element found in the earth’s crust. Fluorine is a highly reactive pale yellow gas derived mainly from fluorspar, fluorapatite and cryolite. On the basis of type, fluorochemicals are broadly classified as fluorocarbons, fluoropolymers and inorganics and specialty fluorochemicals. Fluorochemicals are used in a number of home and industrial appliances such as refrigerators, air-conditioners, fire extinguishers, blowing agents and various electronic products. Fluorochemicals are also extensively employed in different sectors including pharmaceuticals, automobiles, industrial coatings and semi-conductor manufacturing. 

The global fluorspar reserves are concentrated in a few geographical regions. South Africa owns the world’s largest fluorspar reserves followed by Mexico, China and Mongolia. In 2011, China led the global fluorochemicals market in terms of both production as well as consumption. The global fluorochemical market generated revenue of USD 15,303.0 million in 2011 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% from 2012 to 2018. Refrigerants, aluminum production, blowing agents and components and others are the major application segments of fluorochemicals. Refrigerants are the largest application segment of fluorochemicals, and components and others are expected to be the fastest growing segment for the next five years 

On the basis of types, fluorocarbons dominated the fluorochemical industry in terms of both volume and revenue in 2011. Although fluorocarbons have the highest market share, they are expected to be the slowest growing segment in the industry. Inorganics and specialty fluorochemicals are expected to be the fastest growing segment till 2018. The growth in the industry is mainly triggered by the growing demand for refrigerants, automotives, electronics and pharmaceuticals. 

DuPont, Daikin, Solvay, Asahi Glass, Dongyue, Arkema, Honeywell, Pelchem, Mexichem and Mitsui Chemicals are amongst the major manufacturers of fluorochemicals.
