Middle East & Africa Fluoropolymers Market
The Fluoropolymers market in Middle East & Africa is estimated at XX KT in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of X.X%, over the next six years to reach XX KT by 2021.
Fluoropolymers are fluorocarbon-containing polymers with unique high-performance material features. They are used as non-stick cookware and bakeware coating, and as coating in rugged and all-weather apparel. Fluoropolymers have other significant applications in various industries, such as the Aviation, Electronics, Telecommunications, Automobiles and Trucks, Pollution Control, and National Security.
The major driving force for fluoropolymers is the realization that these products can increase the life cycle of exterior coatings and subsequently increase the time between recoats. This complements the products and also reduces the costs of infrastructure management by eliminating the number of recoats. Fluoropolymers have unique properties such as high resistance to solvents, acids, and bases, which makes them useful in many end-user industries.
By type, fluoropolymers market is segmented into PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride), FEP (fluorinated ethylene-propylene), ETFE (polyethylenetetrafluoroethylene), PCTFE (polychlorotrifluoroethylene), PVF (polyvinylfluoride) and others. Based on application, the market is categorized into Coatings & Liners, Mechanical Parts & Components, Films, Additives and Others.
The increasing penetration of low volume fluoropolymer such as PVDF and FEP in uses such as semiconductor manufacturing, wire and cable insulation, and coating in construction applications are expected to lead the market towards product innovation and material development. Also, the development of melt processable PTFE is expected to help the future prospects of the maturing PTFE market. Rising continuous rise of environmental concerns has resulted in a new legislation that threatens Fluoropolymers manufacturers, and the rising raw material costs may dampen the overall growth during the period. The major opportunities in the Fluoropolymers market lies in its increasing demand in industrial maintenance sector particularly due to their chemical and oil resistance property. With the increasing need for protection from UV exposure, use of Fluoropolymers in additives is being practiced increasingly.
Middle East & Africa, owing to its fast pace of economic advancement and huge demand from a wide range of industries such as electrical and electronics and automobiles, is a frontrunner in the consumption of fluoropolymer. Market participants are continuously focusing in this region to gain market share and improve profitability.
