Overview of the global fluoropolymers market
Fluoropolymers can be classified as a polymeric resin. These olefinic polymers are comprised of olefinic monomers like tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) and vinylidene fluoride. Fluoropolymers are derived as a result of some, or all, hydrogen atoms from the polymer chain being replaced by fluorine. The resulting polymer-fluoropolymer-boasts various attributes such as excellent electrical insulation, ease in mechanical handling, and chemical resistance. Some other specialty fluoropolymers, which find wide-ranging uses include: fluorosilicones, perfluoroethers, and fluoroacrylates.
This material is also resistant to the vitriolic properties of acids, besides being resistant to bases and solvents. Another vital attribute of fluoropolymers is their ability to withstand extreme temperatures - this makes them the material of choice in a number of outdoor applications.
All of these chemical and physical characteristics have made fluoropolymers a much-sought-after material in applications such as industrial maintenance, cable and wire manufacturing, coatings, aircraft and vehicle manufacturing.
The fluoropolymer value chain comprises a number of raw materials and specialized manufacturing processes. Some materials that prominently feature in the fluoropolymer manufacturing value chain are: ethylene, fluorspar, hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen fluoride, and fluorocarbons. While new precedents are being set as far as novel applications of fluoropolymers go, the global fluoropolymer market has, all the same, been battling a few barriers. For instance, supply constraints and soaring manufacturing costs have been a cause for worry among companies operating in the fluoropolymer market. Raw materials such as fluorspar—a natural mineral—have a high demand not just from the fluoropolymer market, but also from other markets such as ceramics, glass, aluminum, and more. This competition in the procurement of certain raw materials stresses the demand-supply dynamics of the worldwide fluoropolymer market.
This report also studies the abundance of opportunities that exist in the global market for fluoropolymers. Fluoropolymers have UV-ray-blocking properties which have promoted the use of this material in additives. Fluoropolymers reduce the need for re-coating thanks to their long-lasting properties - this attribute has further stoked their demand in the industrial and infrastructure maintenance sector.
Over the forecast period of this report, the Asia-Pacific fluoropolymers market is projected to record the fastest growth rate.
By function and type, fluoropolymers can be broadly classified as: PVDF, PTFE, FEP, and others.
By application, the fluoropolymers market can be segmented as: industrial equipment, aircraft and automotive, electronics and electrical, and chemicals.
