Global Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Market to Grow 5.04% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Increasing Applications in Diverse Industries

July 07, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) market reached a value of US$ 2.5 Billion in 2021. PTFE refers to a synthetic resin that is produced from the polymerization of monomer tetrafluoroethylene. It has a high molecular weight and is unreactive due to the highly stable nature of the fluorine and carbon bonds in its structure. PTFE offers chemical resistance and inertness, low friction, mechanical toughness, stress cracking, flexibility, and thermal resistance. It is non-flammable in nature, due to which it is used in pipe works and containers for corrosive and reactive chemicals. It is also commonly utilized as a nonstick coating for cookware.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Market Trends: 

The global PTFE market is primarily driven by its increasing demand in the electrical and electronics sector. PTFE is an excellent insulator over a wide range of frequencies and temperatures. In the healthcare sector, it is utilized as a graft material in bone grafting procedures and as coatings on catheters. In the automotive industry, it is used to manufacture various parts of the engine that improve the performance and durability of automobiles. PTFE-based lubricants also result in lower emissions and increased fuel efficiency as they reduce the wear and improve the fuel consumption in the machinery. Besides this, PTFE is employed as a fire-retardant in aerospace applications, as it emits low smoke and toxic gases while withstanding aggressive conditions under a broad range of temperatures. Furthermore, the employment of PTFE in chemical and industrial processing, along with coatings and form fillings, is also positively influencing the market growth. Looking forward, the market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.04% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
