The fluoropolymer films market size was expected to reach USD 1.97 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 2.62 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.9% between 2017 and 2022. High-performance properties of fluoropolymer films and rising use of fluoropolymer films in medical & pharmaceutical applications are the major drivers of the global fluoropolymer films market during the forecast period.

Based on type, the fluoropolymer films market is segmented into polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) films, Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF), Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP), Perfluoroalkoxy Polymer (PFA), Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), and others. PTFE films are the most-widely used fluoropolymer films owing to their extensive use in the electrical & electronics and automotive & aerospace applications because of their favorable properties and affordability.

By application, the fluoropolymer films market is segmented into electrical & electronics, industrial, automotive & aerospace, medical & pharmaceutical, consumer products, and others. Electrical & electronics is the largest application segment of the fluoropolymer films market, due to the extensive use of fluoropolymer films in the manufacturing of semiconductors, consumer electronics, and industrial electronics. The growth of the electronics industry and continuous technological advancements are expected to drive the fluoropolymer films market.

Fluoropolymer Films Market

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for fluoropolymer films and is also projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to the presence of numerous electronics manufacturers in the region. China is expected to lead the fluoropolymer films market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period. Nitto Denko (Japan), Daikin (Japan), ACG Chemicals (Japan), Chukoh Chemical Industries (Japan), JiangXi Aidmer Seal and Packing (China), Jiangsu Taifulong Technology (China), Cixi Rylion PTFE (China), and J. V. Corporation (India) are some of the major producers of fluoropolymer films located in the Asia Pacific region.

Key players in the industry have developed high-cost technologies to produce fluoropolymer films to meet the customer demands. These technologies are patented and are difficult to be developed by small companies. Additionally, the complex manufacturing process and the cost of the raw materials increases the cost of production. Hence, the manufacturing cost of fluoropolymer films is expected to restrict the growth of the market.

Companies are majorly using expansion strategy to increase their geographical presence and cater to the increasing demand for fluoropolymer film products. For example, Daikin established a new subsidiary Daikin Chemical Southeast Asia in Thailand, in 2017, to increase the sales of fluoropolymer and fluoroelastomer products to the automotive industry. With this expansion, the company aims to expand its fluorochemical business in the Southeast Asian market.

Companies such as The Chemours Company (US), Saint-Gobain (France), 3M (US), Nitto Denko (Japan), Daikin (Japan), Honeywell International (US), DUNMORE (US), and Guarniflon (Italy) adopted strategies, such as expansions, acquisitions, new product developments, and partnerships to expand their market share and product portfolio in the fluoropolymer films market between 2015 and 2017.

High-performance properties of fluoropolymer films to drive the global fluoropolymer films demand

The films manufactured using several types of fluoropolymers, such as Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF), Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE), and Polyvinyl Fluoride (PVF) are called as fluoropolymer films. These films are known as high-performance films owing to their excellent physical and chemical properties such as high-temperature tolerance, chemical inertness, UV & weather resistance, negligible moisture absorption, complete repellence to water, and non-flammability. These films also have exceptional dielectric properties, excellent optical properties, low surface energy, low coefficient of friction, and high insulation properties. All these properties increase the durability of the fluoropolymer films. Therefore, the significant properties of fluoropolymer films play an important role in driving the market.

High cost of technology development and manufacturing of fluoropolymer films is expected to restrict the market growth

The cost of fluoropolymer films is directly proportional to the cost involved in their technology development, complex manufacturing process, and the cost of the raw materials used for manufacturing the films such as PTFE, PVDF, ETFE, and PVF. The key players in the industry have developed high-cost, patented technologies to produce fluoropolymer films. This leads to the high price of fluoropolymer films which is expected to restrict the use of fluoropolymer films in different price-sensitive applications.
