The global fluoro elastomers market is expected to witness a CAGR of approximately 7% during the forecasted period, majorly driven by growing demand from automotive and process industries, where the heat and chemical resistance properties of fluoro elastomers under harsh conditions are appreciated.
O-rings, Seals and Sealants are the Major Application
Fluoro Elastomers are widely used as O-rings, seals and sealants. The high fluorine to hydrogen content makes them resistant to high temperature and oils. The usage of these in automotive, aerospace, and process industries is expected to grow significantly in the future, due to the rising consumer demand for high performance products.
Automotive as one of the Major End-user Industries
Fluoro Elastomers are expected to be widely used in automotive industry due to their sealing properties. These synthetic rubber compounds can withstand harsh conditions, like temperature extremes, and resistance to oil, and other chemicals. These properties make it invaluable in automotive applications, like valves, diaphragms, O-rings, and other seals and joints. The growing automotive industry, especially in emerging economies like China and India is expected to be a major driver for the market.
Asia Pacific a Major User of Fluoro Elastomers
Asia-Pacific currently leads the consumption of Fluoro Elastomers due to their usage in automotive, electronics, and process industries. Asia-Pacific is a hub for manufacturing, and these end-user industries are growing at a significant rate due to the increasing local demand and export markets. The higher pricing of fluoro elastomers is a deterrent in this market. However, the growing consumer preference for high performance products is overcoming the price sensitivity, and this region is also expected to be fastest growing market for fluoro elastomers.
