Market Overview

Fluoropolymer is a fluorocarbon-based polymer having multiple carbon-fluoride bonds. Fluoropolymer additives are extensively used in polymer processing for film blowing, injection molding, and extrusion. Additionally, fluoropolymer additives are used as an additive in coatings, lubricants, and inks. The properties of fluoropolymer additives increase their demand as they reduce the optical defects and simultaneously increase the production output.


The growing demand for lightweight thermoplastic materials as a substitute for metals as well as the demand for structural coatings in the construction industry are factors expected to fuel the growth of the global fluoropolymer additives market. Fluoropolymer additives offer significant properties such as chemical and heat resistance, low coefficient of friction, and high tensile strength enhance the presentation of end-use applications, such as coatings, coaxial cables, and insulation wires. The increasing investments in the building & construction industry and growing adoption of plastic in the automotive industry are also expected to boost market growth.


Although the market is growing at a moderate rate in the present scenario, the increasing demand for fluoropolymer additives in the coating industry is expected to fuel the growth of the global fluoropolymer additives market at a significant rate during the forecast period. The fluoropolymers additives used in printing inks are high in demand across the globe. Likewise, the growing need for and applications of fluoropolymer additives in the coatings and thermoplastic industries are expected to drive the demand for the product and propel the growth of the global fluoropolymer additives market.


However, less demand for elastomers in developed economies is expected to hamper the growth of the global fluoropolymer films market during the review period.
