The market for fluoropolymers is being driven by the expansion of existing application markets and emergence of new markets. Fluoropolymers exhibit properties superior to other polymeric materials and rubber which make them ideally suitable for a wide range of applications, especially applications demanding extreme environments, such as high temperature stability, high chemical resistance, superior dielectric properties, weldability, mechanical strength, etc.
The automotive and transportation industry is the largest end use application for fluoropolymers. The growing trend towards lower vehicle weight, lower emissions, and enhanced fuel efficiency is expected to drive the consumption growth of fluoropolymers in the automotive and transportation industry. The highest sales growth of passenger cars in emerging markets such as China and India is also expected to boost the market. Electrical and electronics is the second largest application for fluoropolymers where they are increasingly being used in semiconductor fabrication, wire and cable insulation, lithium-ion batteries, jacketing, etc. Emerging new applications including photovoltaic modules, fuel cells, jacketing, lithium-ion batteries, etc. would also fuel the growth of the fluoropolymers market in the near future. The durable nature and excellent performance characteristics of fluoropolymers in harsh environments and demanding applications are expected to further help the market.
The global Fluoropolymers Market in terms of revenue was estimated to be worth $7,159.3 million in 2012 and is expected to reach $9,797.4 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2013 to 2018.
