Global Polyphenylene Ether (PPE) Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global polyphenylene ether (PPE) market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing applications of PPE for making electronic connector lubricants, medical equipment, and other products. Polyphenylene ether (PPE) is a thermoplastic polymer used extensively for its high resistance to heat, chemicals, and solvents. Moreover, post the coronavirus pandemic, PPE is in high demand for making protective PPE kits, as it is able to trap media for volatile and semi-volatile compounds. Furthermore, equipment, such as, syringes, needles, and surgical blades are made of PPE as it is resistant to chemicals. According to the data by the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 89 million medical masks, 76 million gloves, and 1.6 million goggles are required for the COVID-19 response each month. Such factors are anticipated to boost the market growth.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals Infographic Graph

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
