The global fluoropolymer additives market size reached US$ 1.5 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2.1 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6% during 2023-2028.
A fluoropolymer is a polymer with a carbon backbone that contains fluorine to form strong carbon-fluoride bonds. They are widely used across several industrial verticals as additives to enhance performance by modifying coating formulations, anti-foaming properties, and wetting and dispersing characteristics. Fluoropolymer additives perform well in high-temperature and extremely corrosive environments due to their high tensile strength and exceptional resistance to wear, heat, and chemicals. They are also used in polymers, plastics, and rubbers to process film blowing, injection molding, and extrusion and reduce wear and friction. Apart from this, fluoropolymer additives exhibit excellent wearability, superior surface protection, and defoaming, wetting, and high pigment stabilization properties, due to which they find extensive applications across the paints and coating industries.
Fluoropolymer Additives Market Trends:
The widespread product adoption in the coating industry to improve wettability, foam reduction, dispersing, anti-chipping, and ultraviolet (UV) protection of the material is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, increasing investments by governments of various nations promoting infrastructural development is also favoring the market growth. Apart from this, rising environmental consciousness and the rapid shift toward environmentally friendly products are providing an impetus to the market growth. Moreover, the increasing need for flexible packaging solutions and rapid technological advancements is likely to accelerate the demand for printing inks. This, in turn, has facilitated the extensive product utilization in printing ink applications due to their low coefficient of friction and chemical resistant properties, which is positively influencing the market growth. Other factors, including the rising demand for lightweight thermoplastics, extensive research and development (R&D) activities, and widespread product adoption in plastic processing industries to reduce dye build-ups, minimize sharkskin defects, and enhance yield, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
