Fluoropolymers to 2016 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for fluoropolymers is forecast to increase 5.3 percent annually to $2.4 billion in 2016. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) will remain the largest and most valuable segment, while polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) will grow the fastest. The construction and electrical/electronics markets will be the fastest growing outlets.

This study analyzes the $1.9 billion US fluoropolymer industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., PTFE, fluoroelastomers, FEP, PVDF, PVF), application (e.g., coatings and liners, mechanical parts, films) and market (e.g., industrial processing, electrical and electronic, transportation equipment, construction).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry players, including DuPont, Daikin Industries and Solvay.
