Polyarylsulfone Market Overview


The global polyarylsulfone market size was estimated at 1.71 billion in 2020 and is likely to witness strong growth in demand at a healthy CAGR of 7.9% from the Forecasts Period (2022-2030). Amorphous high-performance thermoplastics comprising phenyl and biphenyl groups connected by ether and sulfone groups are known as polyarylsulfone (PAS). It outperforms designed thermoplastics in terms of thermal resistance and short- and long-term thermal stability. It can resist temperatures of up to 1500¬įC in long-term service and 2500¬įC in short-term duty. High impact and tensile strength, lightweight, excellent transparency, low moisture absorption, good dimensional stability, good flame retardancy, high glass transition temperature (2000C), low coefficient of thermal expansion (1200C), and good hot water, steam, chemical, and stress-cracking resistance are just a few of the benefits. Because of its superior qualities, polyarylsulfone is commonly utilized in industries that require high safety and regulatory standards, such as automotive, aerospace, and healthcare. Polyarylsulfone is commonly used in the healthcare business to make X-ray machines, gamma machines, dental and surgical equipment, orthopedic equipment, and sterilization trays, among other things. Over the evaluation period, these applications are likely to be the most important contributors to the growth of the polyarylsulfone market. The growing trend in the automotive and aerospace industries to replace metal parts with lightweight polymers to improve fuel efficiency is predicted to enhance polyarylsulfone growth significantly over the forecast period. Due to its great thermal stability, dimensional stability, lightweight, and impact & tensile strength, it is also utilized in the automotive industry to make headlight reflectors, cooling water, and oil circuits.


Key Players


Some of the major players operating in the global polyarylsulfone market are Solvay SA (Belgium), BASF SE (Germany), Sumitomo Chemical Company. (Japan), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Quadrant Plastic Composites AG (Switzerland), Polymer Industries (U.S.), Westlake Plastics Company (U.S.), Polymer Dynamix Llc (U.S.), Ensinger Inc. (U.S.), and RTP Company (U.S.).


Polyarylsulfone is widely used in areas requiring safety & regulatory standards such as automotive, aerospace, and healthcare industry due to its excellence of properties. In the healthcare industry, polyarylsulfone is widely used to manufacture various instruments such as X-ray machines, gamma machines, dental and surgical equipment, orthopedic equipment, and sterilization trays. These applications are expected to be the major contributor to the growth of polyarylsulfone market over the assessment period. The growing trend of replacing the metal parts with lightweight polymers in the automotive and aerospace industries to increase the fuel efficiency is expected to boost the growth of the polyarylsulfone to a large extent during the forecast period.  In the aerospace industry, polyarylsulfone is used to make airline interiors and lightweight trolleys for serving drinks & meals to airline passengers due to its various properties such as good flame retardancy, lightweight, and high impact strength. Furthermore, it is used in the automotive industry to manufacture headlamp reflectors, cooling water and oil circuits, in-vehicle electrics (housing and connectors), and transmissions due to its high thermal stability, dimensional stability, lightweight, and impact & tensile strength. The use of polyethersulfone membranes for ultrafiltration of water is expected to gain a considerable share of the market over the forecast period due to its variable pore size, high flow, chemical resistance, and excellent sterilizability. Moreover, polyarylsulfones are used in electrical & electronics applications such as in switch latches, fuse holders, circuit breakers, transparent displays, housing parts of air humidifier & electrical batteries due to its lightweight, high impact & tensile strength, reduced creep tendency, and high dimensional stability. Furthermore, it is used to manufacture household appliances such as coffee machines, samovars, and pipe connections fittings due to its high thermal stability, chemical resistance and low moisture absorption property.


However, the high cost of polyarylsulfone over conventional engineered thermoplastics and standard thermoplastics is expected to hamper the market growth. Furthermore, difficulty in processing the high-performance thermoplastics is also expected to restrict the growth to some extent during the assessment period.
