Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), also known as polyvinylidene difluoride, is an engineering plastic that belongs to the family of semi-crystalline fluoropolymers. It is a highly non-reactive fluoropolymer produced by the polymerization of vinylidene difluoride (VDF). PVDF is employed in applications involving high resistance, strength, and purity to acids, bases, solvents, and heat. It is also used as an important ingredient in high-end coatings for metal roofing in both, residential and commercial applications. PVDF membranes are widely used for immobilizing proteins owing to their affinity towards amino acids. Moreover, PVDF finds extensive use as sheets, films, tubes, and coatings in various end-user industries such as chemical processing, oil & gas, construction, and electrical & electronics.
Global PVDF market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2016 to 2022, and reach $1,490 million by 2022 from $901 million in 2015. The world demand for PVDF resin has witnessed a noticeable growth over the past few years and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, owing to increase in demand in numerous applications and government support for R&D to find new commercial avenues. Rise in demand for lithium-ion batteries, photovoltaic films, and coatings is anticipated influence the market growth. PVDF has high demand in Europe, U.S., and other emerging economies such as China, India, and others. However, the increase in use of substitutes is expected to hamper the market growth.
