The long-term outlook on the global fluoropolymers market remains positive, with market value expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. Future Market Insights delivers key insights on the global fluoropolymers market in its latest report titled ‘Fluoropolymers Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment (2031).’

The industrial & equipment segment is expected to remain a key end-use segment, accounting for over one-fourth of the total shares in the global market throughout the forecast period. Global sales of fluoropolymers is estimated to be valued at over US$ 8 Bn by the end of 2017.

APEJ is estimated to account for a major value share in the global fluoropolymers market by 2017 end and is anticipated to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. In this report, Future Market Insights throws light on the drivers and restraints likely to impact the market during the forecast period.

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.
