Fluoropolymers are polymers characterized by numerous strong carbon-fluorine bonds. Owing to the unique attributes such as mechanical, chemical resistant and electrical insulation, fluoropolymers are considered as highly durable protective coatings in various applications such as architectural coating preparations, particularly those required in the exteriors. Fluoropolymers have a high usage in industrial processing due to their oil and chemical resistant properties.
Key factor driving the global consumption levels of fluoropolymers is rampant growth of the automotive end-use industry. Fluoropolymers have a prominent application in the auto industry activities such as production processes of fuel hoses, gaskets, O-rings, shaft seals, power steering systems, and transmission systems. All types of fluoropolymers used in automotive industry offer superior and desirable characteristics of high resistance to thermal wear, chemical exposure, friction, and mechanical wear and tear. Furthermore increasing demand for fluoropolymers is also observed in the manufacturing processes of electronics and medical devices. The various other applications of fluoropolymers in cookware, semiconductors, cables, and wires are also expected to fuel demand for fluoropolymers over the forecast period (2016–2024).
However, the market is expected to have few potential restraints such as environmental concern regarding the usage of fluoropolymers, as it is nearly impermeable to natural degradation due to its attributes. Furthermore, numerous fluoropolymers break down into chemicals that can cause cancer.
