New Product Launches to Strengthen Their Foothold in the PVDF Membrane Market.

Expansions and acquisitions were the key strategies adopted by industry players to achieve growth in the Polyvinylidene Difluoride (PVDF) membrane market. The strategies accounted for a share of 36.4% of all growth strategies adopted by the market players from 2013 to 2017. Market players also adopted new product launches and partnerships as strategies to expand their product portfolio.

Asia Pacific and Europe were the key regions, in terms of strategic developments undertaken from 2013 to 2017. Asia Pacific accounted for a share of 65% of all the expansions that took place from 2013 to 2017. Companies such as Arkema (France), Merck (Germany), Koch Membrane Systems (US), Bio-Rad (US), CITIC Envirotech (Singapore), and Thermo Fisher (US) undertook several expansions to serve customers more efficiently and increase their market shares. These companies adopted both organic and inorganic growth strategies such as expansions, mergers & acquisitions, and new product launches to strengthen their foothold in the PVDF membrane market.

Arkema accounted for the largest share of all the development activities in the market from 2013 to 2017. Arkema SA is increasingly participating in exhibitions and tradeshows to showcase its products. It is also focusing on expansions in multiple regions to increase its production capacity in various applications. As part of its business strategy, Arkema mainly focuses on inorganic growth for PVDF membrane business. In October 2016, Arkema announced its plans to increase the production capacity for Kynar PVDF by 25% at its plant in Changshu, China. This expansion helped in meeting the strong demand, particularly in the water treatment application. With this investment, the facility in Changshu became the largest PVDF plant in Asia.

Merck operates in three business sectors, namely, life science, healthcare, and performance materials. Merck is a leading supplier to the global life sciences industry. It provides solutions and services for research, development, and production of biotechnology and pharmaceutical drug therapies. EMD Millipore, the life sciences business of Merck, is one of the biggest players in the PVDF membrane market, with products, such as Aervent (PTFE), Durapore (PVDF), and Millipore Express (PES) membranes. In July 2016, Merck announced its plans of building a new campus in Burlington, Massachusetts, US. This new campus will serve as a major hub for the life science business of the company in North America. The 280,000-square-foot facility will include a training center as well as a customer collaboration laboratory with office space.
