Fluoroelastomers (FKM) Market Trends

  • Rising Demand for Fuel-Efficient Vehicles

Consumer demand for fuel-efficient vehicles is rising, which is good news for the automobile sector given the rise in climate change, the depletion of fossil fuel supplies, and price swings in crude oil. Automobile manufacturers are making significant investments in R&D to alter their current designs and concentrate on using lightweight materials to attain the needed efficiency. To increase efficiency, manufacturers are reducing the size of engine and powertrain components and adding air circulation systems. These variations in proportions expose the vehicle's parts to hot fluids and fumes and high temperatures. Fluoroelastomer is expected to have a rise in demand because of its compatibility with a wide range of chemicals and tolerance to a wide range of temperatures. The inadequacy of traditional elastomers to withstand high temperatures will further fuel the expansion of the fluoroelastomer market.
