Global demand for fluorochemicals will rise 2.7 percent annually by volume through 2013. The Asia/Pacific region will remain the largest market while the Africa/Mideast region grows the fastest. Inorganic and specialty fluorochemicals will continue as the top segment while fluoropolymers lead gains.
This study analyzes the $12.7 billion world fluorochemical industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (fluorocarbons, inorganics and specialties, fluoropolymers), market (e.g., refrigerants, aluminum production, blowing agents, components), world region and for 15 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 14 industry players, including DuPont, Solvay and Daikin Industries.
