Value gains for fluorochemicals worldwide will advance 5.4 percent annually through 2009 as higher cost products such as HFCs and fluoropolymers expand globally into both mature and developing markets. The US will remain the largest fluorochemical market as China solidifies its position as the second largest.
This study analyzes the $11.6 billion world fluorochemical industry. It presents historical demand data for 1994, 1999 and 2004 plus forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by product (e.g., HCFCs, HFCs, CFCs, inorganics and specialties, fluoropolymers); by market (e.g., refrigerants, aluminum production, blowing agents, components, water treatment, chemical intermediates, solvents and aerosols); by world geographic region and for 14 major countries.
The study also considers market environment indicators, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 00 major producers including DuPont, Solvay, Total, Daikin, Asahi Glass, Honeywell, 3M, and Ineos.
