“The global Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2016 to 2021”

The global PEEK market is projected to reach USD 664.3 million by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2016 to 2021. The special properties of PEEK, such as high chemical resistance and greater dimensional stability over conventional materials have been driving the demand for PEEK in high end applications, including medical, aerospace, and automotive.

The market for PEEK is expanding at a high pace; however, it still faces some restraints. The high price of PEEK and increasing competition from hybrid polymers and composites are some of the major inhibitors for the PEEK market.

“Electrical & electronics is the fastest growing end user segment in the global PEEK market”

The PEEK market, by end user, was led by the electrical & electronics sector in 2015. This segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. The growth of this sector is due to the rising demand from end applications in the electrical & electronics industry, including electrical connectors, transformers, cable sheaths, and so on.

“Glass filled is the fastest-growing type segment in the global PEEK market”

The glass filled segment accounted for the largest share of the global PEEK market in 2015, and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. The major driver for the growth of this segment is the growing demand for PEEK products with greater strength and stiffness from key end-use industries.

“Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market for PEEK, whereas, Europe held the maximum share in 2015”

The PEEK market in the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the coming years. The growth of this regional market can be attributed to the increased demand for PEEK from the electrical & electronics, aerospace, and automotive end user segments in the region.

Moreover, in 2015, Europe was the largest market for PEEK and is projected to grow at a high rate from 2016 to 2021. The stringent environmental regulations implemented in the European region has led to the increased usage of PEEK in the automotive industry for the manufacture of various interior, exterior, and under-the-hood components for automobiles.

The global Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) market is projected to reach USD 664.3 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2016 to 2021. The growth of this market can be attributed to the growing demand from the end user industries in the developed economies, including the U.S. and the European countries, coupled with the increasing investments in the electrical & electronics and transportation (aerospace and automotive) industries in emerging economies including China, South Korea, India, and Brazil,.

The electrical & electronics segment led the global PEEK market in 2015, followed by the aerospace segment. The electrical & electronics segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. Rising demand for telecommunications, semiconductors, displays, and electronic components, from both, developed and emerging economies, is projected to fuel the growth of the electrical & electronics segment in PEEK market.

Glass filled was the largest type segment of the PEEK market in 2015. It is the most common type of PEEK and is used in a wide range of industrial applications. The glass filled segment is projected to be the fastest-growing type segment from 2016 to 2021, due to its enhanced mechanical and thermal properties. With its cost efficient solutions and applicability in a wide range of applications, glass filled PEEK is projected to continue to lead in the PEEK market over the coming years.

The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing market as it is one of the major consumers of PEEK. There is an increasing demand for PEEK from both, developed and emerging countries such as Japan, China, India, Australia, and others in this region. The increasing demand from the electrical & electronics industry is expected to drive the PEEK market in China and South Korea.

Growing population, urbanization, and investments in end-use industries are driving the growth of the PEEK market in the Asia-Pacific region. The increasing manufacture of electrical & electronic components, coupled with the growing automotive industry, is expected to further boost the PEEK market in this region.

One of the major inhibitors for this market is the high cost of PEEK. Manufacturing PEEK products that can withstand high temperatures requires a high level of technical competency. Also, PEEK manufacturers are required to make high investments, as the manufacturing process is highly complex than that for any other group of polymers. Due to these factors, the production of PEEK is costly, and thus the cost of end-products is also very high.

The key players operational in the PEEK market include Victrex plc (U.K.), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), Evonik Industries AG (Germany), and Panjin Zhongrun High Performance Polymers Co. Ltd., (China), among others.
