Fluoropolymers

Growth in the US fluoropolymers market will total 5.3% annually through 2019 in value terms. Gains will be fueled by opportunities in electronics applications such as separators for lithium-ion batteries. Advances will also benefit from the superior performance properties of fluoropolymers, such as chemical resistance, high heat tolerance, and mechanical strength.

This report segments the Fluoropolymers industry by Product, Market, and Application. Data is provided in million dollars and million pounds.

Fluoropolymer Products include:

PTFE

FEP

PVDF

Fluoroelastomers

PVF

PTFE will remain the largest of these through 2019. Particularly fast growth is expected for PVDF, driven by rising use in building coatings, batteries, and solar panels.

Major Fluoropolymer Markets include:

Industrial Processing

Electrical & Electronics

Transportation Equipment

Construction.

Industrial processing was the leading outlet in 2014. The most rapid gains through 2019 are forecast for the construction market, fueled by a strong rebound in building construction spending.

Among the key Applications for Fluoropolymers are:

Coatings & Liners

Mechanical Parts & Components

Film

Additives

Coatings & liners was the largest in 2014. Going forward, film applications will see the strongest advances, benefiting from very strong growth in areas such as lithium-ion battery separators and photovoltaic modules.

The fluoropolymer industry is highly concentrated, and economies of scale, vertical integration, and large research and development budgets are required to operate profitably. Major suppliers include Arkema, Asahi Glass, Chemours, Daikin Industries, Honeywell, Solvay, and 3M.
