Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE): A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic high molecular weight solid state fluorocarbon consisting largely of carbon as well as fluorine atoms. PTFE is the largest product market in the fluoropolymer industry. Improving global GDP is largely benefiting demand for PTFE worldwide. In addition, growth is also expected to be driven by expansion in automobile and construction sectors, advancements in wind and nuclear energy and other green energy sectors, and infrastructure development in emerging countries such as India, Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Emerging applications poised to drive growth in the market include manufacturing of wire and cable, fuel cells, advanced batteries and photovoltaic modules.

As stated by the new market research report on Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing market worldwide. China ranks as the major consumer of PTFE in the region, followed by countries such as India and South Korea. End-user industries such as mechanical and chemical processing industries represent major consumers of PTFE. Strong industrial development, expansion of manufacturing bases, growing need for high performance material in textile and medical industries coupled with increasing penetration of the material in sectors such as automotive and medical are factors fuelling growth of PTFE in Asia-Pacific.

Traditional applications of PTFE are largely irreplaceable by any other material due to the high-performance properties of the fluoropolymer. These conventional applications range from electrical insulation and chemically resistant coatings in bearings to pipes and hoses. Since PTFE represents a collection of macromolecules with a range of unique properties, it finds increasing application in fields where most hydrocarbon-based polymers are known to fail, such as oil wells, chemical processing, motor vehicle engines, space applications and nuclear reactors.

Major players covered in the report include 3M, Dyneon LLC, AGC Chemicals Americas Inc., Chenguang Research Institute of Chemical Industry, Daikin Industries Ltd., Dongyue Group Limited, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Gujarat Fluorochemicals Limited, HaloPolymer OJSC, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Corporation, Shanghai 3F New Material Co. Ltd., and Solvay Specialty Polymers, among others.

The research report titled “Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE): A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, issues, drivers, mergers, acquisitions and other strategic industry activities of major companies.
