Polyether Ether Ketone Market Overview Polyether Ether Ketone Market is projected to be worth USD 1225.8 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period (2021-2027). PEEK (polyether ether ketone) is a chemically and mechanically resistant partly crystalline polyaromatic lining thermoplastic. It is used in a variety of industries, including electronics, medical, automotive, aerospace, and others. Because of its increased durability, wear resistance, and abrasion resistance, it is commonly employed in the production of electronic components. Because of its high mechanical qualities and great temperature tolerance, polyether ether ketone is becoming more used in the electrical industry. Global polyether ether ketone market expansion is being fueled by rising demand for miniaturization in electronic gadgets. Product demand is being fueled by rising digitization combined with rising consumer purchasing power. Internet of things (IoT) and automation initiatives are important driving drivers for the polyether ether ketone industry. Biocompatibility is causing a surge in product demand in the healthcare industry. Because of its similar mechanical qualities to bone and less stress shielding, PEEK is extensively utilized in dental implants in place of titanium metal. In the long run, the market is likely to be driven by the increased use of lightweight materials and PEEK in the electrical and electronics industry. During the projected period, the availability of cheaper alternatives is expected to stifle market growth. The expanding number of applications in the healthcare industry is likely to function as an opportunity for the market.
