Polyaryletherketone Market Overview


Asia Pacific holds a major share of the market and is expected to be the fastest growing region with an 3.80% CAGR.Polyaryletherketone, also known as PAEK is a semi crystalline thermoplastic material that possesses high mechanical strength and enhanced temperature stability. Polyaryletherketone are mainly produced by two processes– nucleophilic and electrophilic. PAEK can be processed through all types of thermoplastic processes such as extrusion, injection molding, transfer molding, and compression molding. Polyaryletherketone are extensively used in various applications owing to their excellent properties such as chemical and corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, low toxic emissions and high mechanical strength among others. It is used in seals, valve parts, gears, compressor rings, bearings, wire coatings and other drilling components. The low heat output also enables the use of polyaryletherketone in the aviation applications. Moreover, it is widely used in medical devices owing to its excellent resistance to hydrolysis.


The growing demand for polyaryletherketone in various end use industries is the major factor driving the market growth during the forecast years. Moreover, the growing automotive and oil & gas industries in the developing regions are expected to substantially contribute to the growth of the polyaryletherketone market. In addition to this, the growing defense budget throughout the globe has augmented the use of polyaryletherketone in military weapons which is also adding to the market growth.


 Among the various application segments in polyaryletherketone market, automobile is leading and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Properties such as thermal & mechanical stability and high tensile strength makes them suitable for their use in automobiles. Polyaryletherketone are extensively used in rotor arms, alternator covers, shock absorbers, seals & thrust washers among others. The replacement of metals with polyaryletherketone helps in reduction of weight which in turn enhances the fuel efficiency of automobiles.
