Fluoropolymers Films Market To Surpass US$ 3.1 Bn by 2030 - Coherent Market Insights

Publish In: Apr 20, 2023

Fluoropolymer films are high-performance film that is resistant to extremely harsh conditions such as high temperature and chemicals. These films are low weight, highly durable, have high mechanical strength, thermal stability, and offer high light transmission in IR and UV ranges. Moreover, they also have excellent resistance to flame and harsh weather conditions. These films are widely used across the packaging, automotive, construction, electronic, and aerospace industry. These films can be classified based on product into polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP), polyvinyl fluoride (PVF), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), perfluoroalkoxy alkane (PFA), and ethylene tetrafluoroethylene. Out of which, Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is the most commonly used fluoropolymer film.

The global Fluoropolymer Films Market was estimated to account for around US$ 1.9 billion in terms of revenue in 2022 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 6.31%  during the forecast period (2023 to 2030).


Increasing installation of solar photovoltaic modules around the globe is expected to fuel the market growth of fluoropolymer films. This is due to increasing government initiatives due to the growing demand for a renewable source of energy across both developing and developed regions. Fluoropolymer films are primarily used as protective sheets for solar modules since they provide good physical properties such as lightweight, smoothness, and flexibility and also offer superior power output. This factor is fueling their demand across end users, thereby augmenting the market growth.

Market Opportunities

The growing application of fluoropolymer films in the aerospace industry is projected to offer potential growth opportunities to the market of fluoropolymer films. These films provide an easy-to-clean, scuff-resistant, and attractive interior surface for the aircraft. Moreover, it has superior resistance to harsh cleaners, chemicals, and solvents. The application of fluoropolymer films reduces the maintenance cost and need for repair. Hence, all these factors are fueling the demand for fluoropolymer films across the aerospace industry.

Market Restraints

The high cost of the technology used to produce fluoropolymer films is projected to restrict the adoption of fluoropolymer films. This in turn is expected to hinder the market growth over the forecast period. The manufacturing cost of fluoropolymer films is high as compared to other polymer films because these technologies are patented and are difficult for small manufacturers which is affecting the adoption of this product across various industries. This is a major factor restricting the market growth of fluoropolymer films.

Key Takeaways

On the basis of product type, polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) dominated the global fluoropolymer films market in 2022 with a 29% of market share in terms of revenue, followed by polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP), respectively.

Market Trends

The growing trend of introducing smart and advanced technology for the manufacturing of fluoropolymer films by the manufacturer is expected to propel market growth. For instance, in January 2017, Dunmore Corporation introduced new adhesion-promoting technologies for fluoropolymer films. Dunmore's new adhesion-promoting technologies deliver increased functionality for fluoropolymer film manufacturers by enabling their substrates to be used in applications previously unattainable because printability, surface modification, and multilayer laminations were difficult to achieve with their substrates.

Increasing the focus of manufacturers to increase investment in order to expand the product portfolio and gain a competitive edge in the fluoropolymers films market will favor the market growth over the forecast timeframe. For instance, in September 2019, Daikin America Inc. a fluoropolymers maker announced its plan to spend US$ 195 million to expand its production site in Decatur, Ala.

Competitive Section

Key players active in the global fluoropolymer films are The Chemours Company, Arkema Group, Solvay, Daikin Industries, Ltd., Asahi Glass Co., Ltd., 3M, Saint-Gobain, Polyflon Technology Limited, Dongyue Group Ltd., and Honeywell International Inc.

Few Recent Developments

Arkema Group

  • In January 2017, the company launched new Kynar fluoropolymer powder coatings, which finds applications in products requiring varying levels of flexibility, adhesion, and different application methods, and could offer extreme resistance to chemicals, UV exposure, acids, and bases.
  • In April 2018, Arkema starts new fluoropolymer production capacities in the United States. This new capacity will enable the Group to support its customers’ growth in America, especially in emerging applications such as water filtration and in traditional markets such as the chemical process industry and high-performance cables across automobiles, fiber optics, and oil industry.
