PTFE Market By Form ( Granular, Fine, Aqueous Dispersion, Micronized), By Application (Industrial Goods, Coating, Filled PTFE), By End Industry (Chemical, Automotive, Medical, Food, Textile, & Others), By Geography - Trends & Forecasts to 2018

PTFE has found a wide acceptance in various end industries, on account of its distinguished properties in comparison to other materials. On the basis of application areas, the market of PTFE can be broadly segmented into industrial goods, coatings, filled PTFE, and others. Though industrial goods and coatings are the major PTFE applications and serve an array of industries due to their various properties and performance advantages, Filled PTFE is an emerging market and the demand for the same is growing at good pace.

Asia-Pacific is the biggest market of PTFE, consuming nearly half of the total global demand for PTFE, and also the fastest growing market after ROW region. There is a lot of scope in the Asia-Pacific market due to strong and up surging manufacturing and industrial base, which are the major end consumers of PTFE. Additionally, need for high performance material for medical and textile laminates industry is pushing the demand for premium quality PTFE at a considerable pace in the region. With the emerging technological developments and innovations in the region, the demand growth for PTFE may further augment at a high pace.

Currently, the penetration of PTFE is increasing in automotive, medical, and electronics end industry at a very high pace around the globe. Automotive, as an end industry is strong in all the regions while chemical processing industry demand is traditional and dominant. The key drivers for increasing demand of PTFE in all the sectors are growing demand due to emerging application in medical industry and continuous industrial expansions in Asia-Pacific. On the other hand, upcoming trend of PTFE property modifications on the basis of specific requirements that is mPTFE and increasing consumption of expanded PTFE (ePTFE) in membrane market and other applications are the major upcoming opportunities in the market, and technological developments, and innovations are identified as key strategies to capitalize on these opportunities.
