Format: Online | Last Updated: Mar 2022

[Online Quarterly Update] As of 2021, the global Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) demand was around 12 thousand tonnes, and the market is expected to advance at a CAGR of 3.4% by 2035. 
PEEK is a polyaromatic semi-crystalline, high-performance engineering thermoplastic, which belongs to the polyaryletherketone family. PEEK polymer is derived from step-growth polymerization by the dialkylation of Bisphenolate salts. It can be synthesized by using nucleophilic substitution of 4,4’-difluorobenzophenone or 1,4-bis(4-fluorobenzoyl) benzene with hydroquinone in the presence of Alkali carbonate under microwave irradiation to produce a good yield. Polyether Ether Ketone can be processed by using conventional method such as injection moulding, extrusion and compression monofilament. PEEK being processed by advanced 3D printing technology extends possible applications from patient-specific hearing aids to other surgical aids or instruments.
In comparison to other polymers, PEEK exhibits exceptional properties, for instance, it is resistant to chemicals, chemically inert and insoluble in all solvent, resistant to high temperature, lightweight, creep-resistant, generate extremely low toxic gas and smoke, biocompatible, bioresorbable, etc. The PEEK molecule is very stable in nature due to which it can be reprocessed with the least changes to its properties. This reduces the environmental impact and ensures that waste material from manufacturing processes can be re-used economically. PEEK polymers are well suited for harsh and demanding environments. This light thermoplastic polymer can support numerous requirements at once to address material limitations in applications, frequently replacing metals.
Polyether Ether Ketone is widely regarded as a leading high-performance polymer (HPP) throughout the plastic industry.  Metals used to be the materials of choice in the automotive, aerospace, medical devices and other industries but now PEEK polymer is rapidly replacing it by complying with today’s global emission regulations and assiting in reducing CO2 emission through more efficient technology. Polyether Ether Ketone has gained popularity in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, electrical and electronics, medical, etc. PEEK polymers are replacing Aluminium and other metals in several aircraft components in the aerospace market. It is used in critical engines, aircraft exterior and interior parts providing excellent resistance to high temperature, rain erosion, etc. With the increasing trend of small engine compartments. In the automotive market, PEEK offers weight reduction and noise reduction, resulting in the replacement of metals. The main application includes gear designing, washer and other active components used in transmission, braking and air conditioning system. In the medical sector, Polyether Ether Ketone is the material of choice for implants. Almost everywhere in the body, it provides maximum flexibility of movement for patients over an extended basis. Manifesting all these factors, PEEK polymer demand is expected to escalate the market, globally.
Region wise, Europe holds around 48% of the global consumption of Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK). Germany and Belgium are the largest market in the Europe region with significant development projects and rapidly expanding in aerospace, automotive and medical sectors is a major driver. Rank wise, Asia Pacific comes out to be the second largest region in terms of rising demand from end-user industries. China is one of the largest exporters and consumers of PEEK in the Asia Pacific Region. North America and South America region holds the third & fourth large share of PEEK in terms of demand.
