Therefore the variation in the films might lead to wastage and be considered as the major restraint for the Fluoropolymer films market growth.


 


The raw materials used for the manufacturing of varied types of fluoropolymer films such as PTFE, PVDF, ETFE, and so on are expensive and the technologies developed specifically for manufacturing these are complex and capital intensive which is impossible to reach for small companies and emerging markets players and this factor is considered as the major restraint of fluoropolymer films market growth.


 


Market challenges:


 


The involvement of crude oil in the production of fluoropolymer films and the fluctuation in the prices of crude oil across the globe is considered as the major challenge for the overall growth of the Fluoropolymer films industry. 


 


The processing and the manufacturing of the fluoropolymer films are extremely complex and incur several stages of chemical fusions. The several stages and processes add up the manufacturing costs and thereby increase the overall manufacturing costs of the Fluoropolymer films. Such factors are considered as the major challenge for the overall growth of the Fluoropolymer films industry.


 


Cumulative growth analysis:


 


The market value of the Fluoropolymer industry was at USD 2.2 billion in the year 2020 and it is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 3.3 billion by the year 2028 while registering a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. The market value is expected to have this growth due to the wide range of applications and wide range of end-user industries such as packaging, aerospace, automotive, electronics, and significant others. The Fluoropolymer films possess favorable characteristics such as higher precipitation capacity and they are used as raw materials in building semiconductors, automotive parts, machinery, and electronic parts. The increasing demand for these products across the globe is considered the major driver of fluoropolymer films market growth.


 


 They are also utilized in the production of solar PV modules, the increasing awareness regarding energy conservation, and the growing demand for energy generation from renewable resources across the developed and developing countries are considered as the major drivers of fluoropolymer market growth.


 


Value chain analysis:


 


The potential characteristics of the Fluoropolymer films which include affordability, dielectric properties, and higher reliability, and their utilization as heat sealants, laminations, thermoforming, welding of varied materials are propelling various end-users to utilize the fluoropolymer films. The Fluoropolymer films are gaining a new phase in their development with the growth of the construction industry, and architectural properties. The advancements and the increasing investments in those industries are presenting lucrative opportunities for the overall growth of the fluoropolymer industry. 


 


Among several end-user industries, they are primarily utilized as a coating material of the textural architecture and in translucent ETFE film constructions. Since the construction industry is preferring the ETFE over glasses as they offer higher resistance against several harsh environments and they are lighter than other building materials as well.
