Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) Market Overview

The Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) Market has revenue of USD 746 Million in 2018 and is estimated to reach USD 1,169 Million by 2025 and has a CAGR of 6.7%. 

Polyvinylidene fluoride is an immensely commonly used non-reactive thermoplastic fluoropolymer that is assimilated by the polymerization of advanced and modern vinylidene difluoride. It has properties such as distinguished chemical resistance, massive abrasion resistance, good UV stability, tensile strength, and high wear resistance. PVDF has a specific monomeric repetitive unit of (–CH2–CF2–) and appears in five different crystalline forms that are α phases, β phases, γ phases, δ phases, and ε phases. The phases alter and differ in the crystallographic space group, the total number of formula units per unit cell, different packing of polymer chains, and separate patterning of conformations. PVDF can be easily molded, commonly injected, and easily welded to produce separate polymer sheets and films, which are applied in the manufacturing of a numerous range of applications such as major electrical & electronic, branded piping & tubing, photovoltaic films, national defense equipment, and lithium-ion batteries, among other separate applications.
