Revenue Pockets: Polyvinylidene Fluoride - PVDF Market
Currently, the demand of PVDF is driven by the global oil & gas industry, new energies, & coating applications. The demand for PVDF is supported by growth in lithium-ion batteries, photovoltaic films, and increasing use of PVDF in membranes.
PVDF has easy processability, high mechanical characteristics, low specific gravity, as compared to other fluoropolymers, resulting in cost saving; thus resulting in increase of global demand for PVDF, replacing many plastics and metals due to their better performance. The demand for PVDF is expected to grow due their acceptance in the industry and end-user demand for high performance properties.
There are various markets, especially in Asia-Pacific and ROW region, where the volumetric consumption of PVDF products is increasing due to new projects and environmental rules and regulations. The increasing purchasing power in developing countries, economic growth, potential projects supported by respective governments, and need for high performance products may add to the greater demand in the near future.
