In May 2019, the Dongyue Polymers announced to expand the PTFE capacities of concentrated emulsion and dispersion resin. The company will be investing a total of USD 10.9 million in building a device for PTFE production till June 2021.
The fluoroplastics market is estimated to grow with a moderate CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029. The market is set to grow due to the growing demand from the end-use industries and the new application increase. Fluoroplastics are uncommon and unusual plastics with unique properties such as chemical and temperature resistance. The consumption of fluoroplastics is increasing due to the rising demand from chemical, automotive, electrical & electronics, and other industries.
The market is segmented by type into poly-tetra-fluoro-ethylene (PTFE), fluor-ethylene-propylene (FEP), per-fluor-alkoxy (PFA), ethylene-tetra-fluoro-ethylene (ETFE), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), and others, out of which the poly-tetra-fluoro-ethylene (PTFE) segment is anticipated to grab the most significant share by the end of 2021 on account of its superior properties such as high electrical insulation, good chemical & thermal resistance, and a low coefficient of friction. Moreover, the lesser cost and increasing usage in automotive and electrical components are projected to contribute to the segment's growth during the period of forecast.
Based on the end-use industry, the global fluoroplastics market's industrial machinery segment is projected to grow with a moderate CAGR. The segment's growth can be witnessed due to the use of fluoroplastics for coatings, liners, films, components, and others. The other industries, which will lead to the market's growth are electrical & electronics, and automotive due to the increasing demand for lightweight materials. The increase in the sales of electric vehicles globally leads to the rise in demand for fluoroplastics as a raw material. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), electric vehicles' sales accounted for 2.1 million in 2019, with a growth of 2.6% from the year 2018.
Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa region. The Asia Pacific market is predicted to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to more prominent manufacturers in the region. China, Japan, India, and South Korea are the hub for automotive production, creating steady demand for fluoroplastics. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
