Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Fluorocarbon Elastomers

  • Fluorocarbon elastomers are highly fluorinated carbon-based polymers used in applications to resist harsh chemical and ozone attack. There are, however, specialty grade fluorocarbons that can provide high fluorine content with low-temperature properties.
  • Fluorocarbon elastomers become of vital importance in seal manufacturing. Owing to the wide of chemical compatibility, temperature range, low compression set, and excellent aging characteristics, fluorocarbon rubber is the most significant single elastomer developed over the years.
  • Fluorocarbons are resistant to a broader range of chemicals along with the excellent high-temperature properties than any of the other elastomers. Due to which, it is the most preferred elastomer for sealing in the use of O-rings and other custom seals over different types of elastomers, globally.
  • These elastomers are highly resistant to swelling and degradation when exposed to gasoline or UV light and ozone. With exposure to low temperatures, fluorocarbon elastomers can become hard (-4 °F) but can be serviceable at low temperatures, although these compounds are not ideal for applications requiring good low-temperature flexibility.
  • Additionally, some of the other materials are also present with the differing composition of monomers and fluorine content (65% to 71%) for improved resistance against low, high temperature, or chemicals. Fluorocarbon elastomers provide low gas permeability, which make them suitable for hard vacuum service applications and many other industrial applications.
  • Fluorocarbon materials are not usually recommended for applications where hot water, steam, polar solvents, low molecular weight esters and ethers, glycol based brake fluids, or hot hydrofluoric or chlorosulfonic acids are being used.

Saudi Arabia to Dominate the Market

  • Saudi Arabia is one of the major consumers of fluoroelastomers in the Middle East & African region. The fluoroelastomer market is expected to be mainly driven by the industrial and construction sector. According to IMF, Saudi Arabia registered 2.2 % GDP growth in 2018 and estimated to grow at a rate of 2.4 % in 2019.
  • Saudi Arabia is one of the largest markets for air-conditioning products, owing to its geography, climate, high per capita income, and rapid population growth. As the fluoroelastomers market majorly depends on the air conditioner and refrigerant demand, the growth in the air conditioner market and the refrigerant market is likely to drive the fluoroelastomer market in Saudi Arabia.
