Fluoropolymers Market: Snapshot

Fluoropolymers have emerged as a versatile category of engineered plastics in a wide range of end-use industries, including in the automotive and aerospace industries. The groundswell of interest in the application of the polymer materials is underpinned by the amazing thermal stability fluoropolymers possess. This property is well complemented by their splendid chemical resistance and high surface resistivity. This makes them suitable for various high-temperature applications as well as for corrosive chemical environments prevalent in the automotive industry.  The growing demand for performance polymers in the making of automobiles’ bodies has stemmed from the need to conform to increasingly demanding industrial regulatory norms, especially in several developing and developed nations. The rising usage of engineered plastics in the vehicle power train bodes well for the demand for fluoropolymers in the automotive industry. In recent years, the expectations of end users, especially in emerging economies, have also soared with regard to the performance and durability of vehicles. This is also catalyzing the uptake of fluoropolymers.

The rising need to meet industry standards has propelled the demand for automotive made with materials that are exposed to extremely high temperatures and aggressive chemical conditions. Hence, there is an extensive demand for high-performance engineered plastics in fluoropolymers in the making of the vehicle fuel and transmission system, electrical systems, and tubing. Of special significance is the use of these polymers in making PolyTetraFluoroEthylene (PTFE) tubing. In addition, fluoropolymers prove as an excellent protective materials for wires and cabling used in vehicles as these wires frequently come in contact with high temperatures. The marked light weight of fluoropolymers is also an attractive proposition for their usage in the vehicles’ bodies in order to make them more fuel efficient. However, there are risks of the emission of toxic products when fluoropolymers are overheated. This calls for modification of chemical properties of these polymers.
