Fluoropolymer manufacturers are investing into research to widen the scope of potential applications for fluoropolymers, in a bid to sustain operations through the pandemic.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / July 20, 2020 / Future Market Insights: The fluoropolymers market is expected to surpass a valuation of US$ 11.4 Bn between 2015 and 2025. According to FMI reports, manufacturing facilities are facing substantial challenges to operations. A number of end use verticals have temporarily suspended operations, either owing to a sharp drop in demand, or due to government restrictions. These trends will hurt prospects of the fluoropolymers market in the short term.

"Fluoropolymers are largely used to improve physical and chemical characteristics of coatings in industrial, construction, and household applications. The characteristics of fluoropolymers resins drive applications in production of novel friction reduction materials with thermal and chemical resistance, which will bolster market growth," says the FMI analyst.

Fluoropolymers Market - Leading Constraints

  • Strict regulations governing the production and application of fluoropolymers is a key challenge to market growth.
  • Risks of perfluorooctanoic acid contamination in coating applications hurts market prospects.

Expected Impact on Market by Coronavirus Outbreak

With the coronavirus crisis, workers in manufacturing facilities are higher risk, as manufacturing operations cannot be conducted remotely. Consequently, the closure of fluoropolymer production facilities and disruptions in raw material supplies during the crisis period, will hurt near term prospects of the market. However, wide ranging industrial and chemical applications will support a steady recovery once lockdown restrictions are relaxed.
