Fluoropolymers

As Quoted In Purchasing Magazine

US demand for fluoropolymers will rise 4.5 percent annually through 2013. Gains will be driven in part by a turnaround in key markets such as motor vehicles and wire and cable, and rising demand in fast-growing emerging markets such as advanced batteries, fuel cells and photovoltaic modules. PTFE will remain the largest type while fluoroelastomers will grow the fastest.

This study analyzes the $1.4 billion US fluoropolymer industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., PTFE, FEP, Fluoroelastomers, PVDF), application (e.g., coatings and liners, mechanical parts and components, films, additives) and market.

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.
