Fluoropolymer films consist of fluorine and carbon molecules and are high-performance polymer films. These films are widely used across high-temperature applications and extremely harsh chemical conditions. They are highly resistant to chemicals, and moisture, offer non-stick performance, and have optical transparency. These films are used for cable insulation, composite mold release, roll covers, pharmaceutical liners, anti-corrosive linings, adhesives, photovoltaic cells, microphone membranes, surface coverings, airbags, anti-graffiti coverings, and fuel hoses. Moreover, they are also used across the pharmaceutical industry as blister packaging materials.
Global Fluoropolymers Films Market- Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 outbreak has majorly impacted the Global Fluoropolymers Films market, owing to the strict lockdown and stringent regulations, followed by the government. The global fluoropolymer films industry is anticipated to slow down during the next few years as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic. Lockdowns conducted by governments have caused factory closures in many towns and provinces around the world, raising concerns about a sudden decline in output in industries ranging from packaging to construction. Also, one of the major factors that is anticipated to have a negative impact on the expansion of the market for fluoropolymer films is the recent reduction in construction activity. Moreover, once production activities are suspended, businesses must deal with lost revenues and damaged supply chains.
