New Product Launch Helped the Company Expand Its Offering of Expanded PTFE Fabric Made Fabric Products


The PTFE fabric market is projected to grow from USD 690.8 million in 2018 to USD 908.1 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2018 to 2023. Rapid growth in the food processing and pharmaceutical industries is driving the growth of the PTFE fabric market. PTFE fabrics are used in the food processing and pharmaceutical industries in the form of high temperature resistant and chemically inert conveyor belts. PTFE fabrics are also used in the construction industry for roofing application.

Taconic (US), FIBERFLON (Turkey), Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (France), W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (US), Chukoh Chemical Industries (Japan), Daikin Industries (Japan), Sefar AG (Switzerland), Fothergill Group (UK), Birdair (US), and W.F. Lake Corp. (US) are some of the leading players operating in the PTFE fabric market. These players have adopted the expansion, acquisition, new product launch, contract, and consolidation strategies to cater to the increased demand for PTFE fabrics from various end-use industries.

Daikin Industries is mainly engaged in the business of manufacturing and marketing air conditioning & refrigeration equipment and chemical products. The company offers PTFE fabrics as part of the fluoropolymer division under the Chemicals segment. Daikin Industries had signed an agreement to acquire Heroflon S.p.A., an Italian manufacturer of fluoropolymer compounds. Heroflon offers fluoropolymer compounds and micro-powders centering on polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). This acquisition, which was completed in September 2017, helped the company expand its presence in the PTFE fabric market.
