The global polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) market size reached US$ 2.5 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.3 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.04% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) refers to a tough, waxy and non-flammable synthetic resin that consists of carbon and fluorine atoms. It is manufactured through the free-radical polymerization process of chloroform, fluorspar and hydrochloric acid. PTFE is usually used to give a non-stick coating to surfaces, especially cookware, such as pans and baking trays and industrial products. It is commonly available in granular, powder and micronized forms and exhibits various physical properties, including resistance to chemicals, heat, ultraviolet (UV) rays and fatigue, along with low water absorption and high electrical insulation. Owing to these benefits, it finds extensive applications across various industries, including oil and gas, chemical processing, electrical, automotive and construction.
Significant growth in the chemical and industrial processing sectors is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. PTFE is extensively utilized to manufacture industrial products, such as gaskets, vessel linings, pump interiors, rings, seals and well-drilling equipment. Furthermore, PTFE is also used for improving the overall functioning and minimizing the downtime of these machines and automotive components, thereby enhancing its utilization across industries. In line with this, PTFE also finds applications in the oil and gas exploratory activities, owing to its high resistance to harsh chemicals, acids and caustic. The growing medical industry across the globe is acting as another growth-inducing factor. There is an increasing preference among medical practitioners for various membranes and grafts manufactured using biocompatible PTFE for cardiovascular, orthopaedic, ophthalmic and dental procedures. This, along with the development of reprocessed PTFE with higher compressive strength and durability, is projected to drive the market further in the coming years.
