South America Fluoropolymers Market

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.

The South American Fluoropolymers market is estimated at XX KT in 2015 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX%, over the next six years to reach XX KT by 2020. The region, with its thriving economies and rapidly expanding population, is expected to experience highest growth rate between 2015 and 2020.

Brazil dominated the South America fluoropolymers market, accounting for a major share in overall consumption in 2015. Brazil, 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 on the region to gain market share and improve profitability.

Fluoropolymers are used in an increasing number of markets – from Coatings & Liners, Mechanical Parts & Components, Films, Additives and number of other segments.


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.
