Fluoropolymer Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Process, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Fluoropolymers demand stood at 2.44 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 4 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.32% until 2030. The Fluoropolymer market witnessed significant growth in the past few years globally on account of its increasing demand in various end-user industries. The Fluoropolymer market is majorly driven by the electronics and automobile industry, which accounts for the majority of shares in the total consumption of fluoropolymers across the globe. Fluoropolymers are organic polymeric chemicals with fluorine as a major component in terms of composition. The different types of Fluoropolymers include Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP), Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), Fluoroelastomers and others (ECTFE, PFA, etc.). The FEP and PVDF are the most widely adopted fluoropolymers due to their superior chemical and mechanical properties, for which these are extensively used for wiring and insulation. However, Fluoropolymers have notable adoption in chemical processing, pharmaceutical, industrial textile, semiconductor and electronics, and aviation industries due to their chemical inertness, strong abrasion, and weather resistance properties.
The world economy faced a major disruption due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020. The temporary ban on production due to the shutting down of factories acted as a significant restraint to the Fluoropolymer market. With imposed new regulations of the COVID-19 and proper precautions, the market is anticipated to regain its growth in the years to come. The pandemic is slowly being subsided and the effects are tried to be overcome by various methods. Once the market regains the full function of its production unit, the market is bound to show robust growth in the forecast period
Based on end-user demand, chemical processing dominates the global fluoropolymers market. Besides, fluoropolymers find major adoption in the inner and outer lining of heavy-duty pieces of machinery, process equipment, heat exchangers, pumps, and most importantly process lines/pipes that are responsible for the transportation of corrosive and hazardous chemicals from one place to another in chemical and processing industries
APAC is the dominating region in the global fluoropolymers market, owing to an increase in demand from automotive, electronics, and consumer products from emerging nations such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea. 
Major companies operating in the global Fluoropolymers market are Daiken Industries Ltd, The Chemours Company, Solvay SA, Gujarat Fluoropolymers, 3M, AGC Chemicals, The Dongyue Group, Halopolymer OJSC, Hubei Everflon polymer, Arkema Group, Shanghai 3F New Material Co Ltd, Zhejiang Juhua Co Ltd.
