A fluoropolymer is a fluorocarbon-based polymer with different carbon-fluorine bonds. Fluoropolymers are characterized by high protection from acid, bases, and solvents. The global demand for fluoropolymer additives is currently increasing post moderate growth in the last few years. The global market is primarily driven by the increasing application in coatings owing to its excellent weatherability. Additionally, growing investments in architectural coating development, along with increasing per capita consumption are likely to add to the growth of the global fluoropolymer additives market.
Based on product, the global market has been segmented into polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) micro powders, fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) micro powders, perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) micro powders, and others. The PTFE segment accounted for more than two-third of market value and volume share in 2017 and is projected to dominate the same during the forecast period. PTFE is a key element having a long shelf life, low friction, and available at different operating temperatures.
Based on application, the global fluoropolymer additives market has been classified into printing inks, coatings, lubricants and grease, thermoplastics and elastomers, and others. The printing ink segment accounted for the largest market share owing to the increasing demand in various industries. Likewise, the demand for fluoropolymers additives in coatings and other end-use application is further propelling the growth of the segment.
